New Peugeot 508 2019 model year.

When in 2010, the 508th replaced the 407th and 607th models, everyone thought that the 500th series, finally. Will get the opportunity to turn around in all its glory.

It will once again bring the brand to the leaders of the European auto industry.
Unfortunately, more or less adequately it was sold only in its own homeland. In the rest of the countries, except, perhaps, China, then it was assessed very poorly. Which is not surprising, because classmates for the D-segment Toyota Avensis and Hyundai Sonata looked much more modern and more expressive. And the cheapness, endurance and popularity of such truly folk cars as the Volkswagen Passat and the Ford Mondeo, few people could oppose anything at all.

And, like nothing would foreshadow troubles. The widest line of fairly good economical engines, as many as three transmissions to choose from, the option to choose a complete set and a sedan and station wagon … Moreover, even the transparent roof of the latter and the indecent giant dimensions of the first did not save. And even the prestigious five-star Euro NCAP. And why?

The format of the mega-sedan was already considered by many to be outdated at that time. Yes, and in general the design of the first generation of the 508, albeit not much, but always late. Although he tried to keep up with fashion trends. Well, in 2019, the model is not just waiting for the birth of the second generation. This will be a full-fledged re-launch of the idea, ready now to introduce itself to the world loudly. And, finally, to win his favor.

Restyling of appearance and design

First, this generation will have a structurally completely new platform. Now the 508th will not «hang», raskoryachivshis between the two classes. It will be determined in detail where it is to move.
Following the laws of logic and the current car, it will fall, as if before jumping, to the ground. It will seem that it has become longer. And this should be combined with the use of a new form factor — elevatorback. Instead of an archaic sedan, increase the audience of its fans by an order of magnitude.

Although, to achieve this visual effect was possible only by means of using other proportions, design lines. After all, in truth, the car did not get any lengthened.

But the decrease in height was expressed in quite physical figures — minus only 5.6 cm. But with all other changes, the difference seems striking.
The new platform in addition to what has made the car, finally, competitive in its size. Has allowed to facilitate a design on the whole 70 kg. Due to this the aerodynamic coefficient is now 0.26.

As for the appearance itself, it should be noted that it has become much more effective and relevant. Perhaps the fact is that his design was assembled in a literal sense by pieces from the concepts of Exalt and Instinct. They served as prototypes of the stern and passed, respectively.

And thus the serial model has lost epatage of both. But «stole» from them all the charisma, sportiness and fashion. The sloping roof, LED, a very beautiful narrow-shaped optics, and for GT complete sets, they developed their own specific aerodynamic body kit. Now a completely different radiator grating, which is logical.

New in the cabin and equipment of the Peugeot 508.

Looking inside, you understand why the creators did not hurry with the release of this generation. It seems that they were waiting for the invention of all possible novelties and the approval of all the know-how. This is to put them in your brainchild. In the end, a machine turned out that Bruce Wayne would not disdain.

The system of night vision, pedestrian recognition, a twelve-inch on-board computer sensor and ten — the latest generation multimedia device, adaptive cruise, emergency braking, driving stability, parking assistant, road sign recognition, multifunctional steering wheel and 360-degree view cameras …

And this is not a complete list of what can be carried on board this car. After all, only the basic equipment is described …
As for the design of the salon of this state-of-the-art pepelaca, the concept of it received an effective name i-Cockpit. Advertising 508 Peugeot presents it as «a completely new word in comfort and style.

Well, as for the style, there generally can be no censures. The French, at last, remembered what nation they belong to. They showed who was always the trendsetter in this industry.

As a result, it turned out to be a very beautiful and practical European instrument panel, a smart selection of premium finishing materials, LED lighting and a very good layout of everything.

And seasoned all this charm with a traditional panoramic roof. As well as new professional seats with electrical adjustments and massage functions, and a brand new audio system. About which you can only dream.
