Peugeot 508 sedan is finally on sale in Europe

There is a 5-model line-up, with low CO2 engine and powertrain choices, but in Malaysia we will probably only get the engines that can run on our low quality petrol and the diesels will have to wait until we get EURO5 diesel sold in Malaysia. The Peugeot 508 brings to the market a confident, stylish and well-equipped model range. Highlights include an elegant design, powerful, economical and low CO2 engines and the debut of Peugeot’s new e-HDi Stop & Start System technology. A modern interior design that is both practical and comfortable for its occupants is also a strength of the new Peugeot 508 range which will be available in five trim levels: Access, SR, Active, Allure and GT. Which trim will we get? Probably the top version GT and maybe even a middle child Allure.
The Peugeot 508 is also available with two different front suspension configurations. An all-new pseudo McPherson type front suspension will be the main option on the majority of the 508 range. As well as improved driveability this new set-up reduces weight, as it is 12kg lighter than the design featured on the Peugeot 407. The Peugeot 508 `GT’ model features a drop link double wishbone front suspension advancing the suspension design similar to the 407. The use of a linked double wishbone helps separate suspension and steering forces to improve road holding and steering accuracy. At the rear, the entire range is equipped with multi-arm suspension. This is designed to ensure excellent efficiency with maximum body control and ride comfort due to its superior control of longitudinal and transverse forces. From the images here it is clear to us that this car will do well in sales numbers and could take on cars like the Mazda6, Accord, Passat and even the new S60 when it is launched here. The corporate segment now will have a new contender and the players mentioned above will have to UP their product to keep the market share for sure
