2015 Peugeot 508
Peugeot is up to no good, so to speak. After debuting the facelifted 508 range in Europe, at the Paris Auto Show next month, the stylish mid-size model features both mechanical and technology updates. I guess you’ve seen one on the streets by now, right? So, tell me, do you like it or not? While you think about it, allow me to details the car.
The revised 508 has received the new corporate grille, new headlights and taillights, a more horizontal bonnet, as well as redesigned bumpers. Customers may also opt out for all-LED headlamps, daytime running lights and fog lamps; direction indicators, side lamps, and front fog lamps are entirely LED.
Inside the cabin, Peugeout added a new 7-inch touch screen for standard vehicles, head-up display on RXH and GT models, reversing camera and blind spot sensors. The 508 also gets the new generation of connected services Peugeot Connect Apps. What about the engine? Well, a new power unit, available for the RXH body style, has got everyone excited.
I’m talking about a 2.0-liter BlueHDi diesel (180 PS), which was connected to the new EAT6 six-speed automatic gearbox. Regular 508 models also get a new 1.6-liter THP 165 Stop&Start engine, available with a six-speed manual or the new six-speed automatic transmission. This Euro 6 engine produces 165 PS and replaces the Euro 5 156 PS 1.6-liter engine fitted onto the previous model.
We are talking about Peugeout here, so the diesel lineup could not be ignored; it includes two new Euro 6 engines: a 2.0-liter BlueHDi (150 PS) and a 2.0-liter BlueHDi (180 PS). The latter is offered with a 6-speed manual and is available for both the sedan and SW model. So, tell me: have you come up with an answer yet?
