PEUGEOT 508L unveiled at the Canton Motor Show
PEUGEOT has just presented the new Dongfeng PEUGEOT 508L in preview at the Guangzhou International Motor Show (Guangzhou). The show started on the 16th and will run to the 25th November.
Produced in China at the Wuhan factory, the new Dongfeng PEUGEOT 508L sedan has been added to the PEUGEOT 508 global program, with a specific version adapted to the Chinese market.Its specific design is the result of close collaboration between the Lion Design Teams and the China-based Design Teams.
The choice of the 508L name means “Luxury”, “Long” and “Latest Technology *”, in line with the Chinese customers’ specific expectations of space, status and technology.
A must-have marker for the D-segment sedan in China, the spaciousness has been scaled up with the increase of the wheelbase by 55 mm, bringing it to a total of 2,848 mm and a total length now reaching 4,856 mm. (+ 100 mm).
Accessibility has been optimised with the adoption of new doors with framing, to promote headroom. The conventional boot completes the elegance and posture of this Chinese statutory model. The new Dongfeng PEUGEOT 508L is based on the connected car solution developed by Huawei and is the first vehicle in the range to benefit from the IoT OceanConnect platform.
The PEUGEOT i-Cockpit®, taken from the 508 world program, provides an instinctive and stimulating driving experience. A true signature of PEUGEOT’s interior design, it combines a compact steering wheel, a large 10-inch capacitive HD touch screen and a 12.3-inch high-resolution customisable digital head-up headset.
Marketed in the first quarter of 2019, the new Dongfeng PEUGEOT 508L will enhance the PEUGEOT range in China alongside the PEUGEOT 301, 308 and 408 sedans and the PEUGEOT 2008, 3008, 4008 and 5008 SUVs.
