Prototypes for Peugeot’s brand new 508 have actually been spotted going through screening prior to it goes on sale in 2019. These test cars, displayed in images thanks to Car Scoops, use body panels raised from the 308 SW to camouflage the brand-new car’s styling but it’s expected to draw inspiration from the Exalt Principle.
2019 Peugeot 508 Styling
The brand-new 2019 Peugeot 508 is expected to sport eye-catching styling inspired by the current Peugeot Exalt Concept. This slinky four-door saloon featured an uncommon forward-swept grille and detailed chrome detailing that could all be rollovered to the production model. Its two-tone paintjob could be dropped in favour of a less dissentious palette, however, while the Exalt’s flattened roofline and huge alloy wheels are anticipated to be modified before the 508 appears in car dealerships, too.
2019 Peugeot 508 Interior
The extended 308 SW body panels fitted to this test car recommend the brand-new 508 could be bigger than the outgoing model and may boast a more roomy boot and higher levels of legroom. Its interior could draw from both the Exalt Concept’s and 5008 SUV’s cabins and feature a comparable small guiding wheel, high-mounted instruments and a smart row of toggle turns on the centre console. Unfortunately, the Exalt’s walnut control panel and unusual square steering wheel aren’t anticipated to feature in the finished 508.
2019 Peugeot 508 Engines and Driving
The 2019 Peugeot 508 is anticipated to make usage of a similar series of engines as the 3008 SUV. The most penny-wise alternative might be Peugeot’s upcoming 98hp 1.6-litre diesel motor that should return more than 70mpg while a selection of more powerful diesel engines ranging from a 118hp 1.6-litre system to a 178hp 2.0-litre need to also be available. Petrol fans need to be offered the option of either a revvy 1.2-litre three-cylinder unit– perfect for ringing around town– or a more effective 1.6-litre four-cylinder engine that’ll be more comfy at freeway speeds.
2019 Peugeot 508 Price and Release Date
The incomplete state of this test car recommends the new 2019 Peugeot 508 won’t strike UK roads until as late as 2019. When it does, it’s expected to set you back around the like the outgoing model throughout the range. Entry-level cars could cost from around ₤ 24,000 while top-spec models could carry a price tag of more than ₤ 32,000.
