    Default 2015 Peugeot 508 - official

    I don't like the rear much.

    from press release:
    PEUGEOT today presented in London a major evolution of its grand tourer in the D segment, allowing the new PEUGEOT 508 to express the Brand’s move up-market. The new PEUGEOT bears a new grille, emblematic of the Brand’s future models, and is fitted with the latest equipment, like the touch screen, reversing camera and blind spot sensors. It also benefits from economical and efficient Euro 6 power units, such as the 2.0-litre BlueHDi 150 6-speed manual that, with CO2 emissions of just 105g/km, is the best in the segment for this level of engine power. The new car will be presented to the public in August simultaneously at the forthcoming Moscow and Chengdu Motor Shows, then at the Paris Motor Show, with sales starting in Europe from September.

    Is it just me, or does it look like a Volvo?

    I think it remarkable for a French car to photographed with a bloke! Don't these people know that only hot chicks sell cars?

    It is to be made in Rennes for Europe and Wuhan for China. They are very proud of their "floating" front grille. I wonder if the rest of the car is amphibious.

    Looks great, especially the wagon! I'd have no issue being seen in one of those at all.

    It looks very similar to the Chinese market DS5 sedan? Badge engineering?

    Looks good! At first it comes across as a Mazda 6 but the more you look at it you realise it works well. The 508 needs a Coupe.... It's one of the nicest shapes for some time. The floating grille reminds me of a 505 grille, an evolved version ofcourse.....
