Coupe-like new Peugeot 508 leaks before Geneva

21.02.2018

On sale since 2011 notwithstanding a facelift in 2014, first images of the new Peugeot 508 have leaked online ahead of its Geneva Motor Show debut next month.

Posted by Polish website namasce.pl, the second generation 508 is a radical departure from the soon-to-be outgoing model, and features a much more aggressive appearance inspired by the Instinct concept shown at the Swiss showpiece last year, in the form of slender headlights, claw-like daytime running LEDs dropping from the lights onto the bumper flanges, a coupe-like roofline, grille taken from the 3008 and 5008, subtle boot spoiler and claw motive LED taillights split by a black strip.

As the model in question is the top spec GT, it also gets unique alloy wheels reported to be either 19 or 20-inches as well as chrome tipped dual exhaust outlets.

The interior is arguably even more dramatic with the latest iteration of Peugeot's i-Cockpit layout consisting of an integrated touchscreen display, full digital instrument cluster, a more minimalist centre console trimmed in dark wood with blue cupholder mood lighting and a gear lever similar to that of the 5008, blue lighting in the foot wells, aluminium inserts, stitched leather and integrated toggle switch-like buttons at the base of the infotainment system.

Engine options are expected to range from the 1.2-litre PureTech turbo-petrol to the 2.0-litre BlueHDI turbodiesel, with outputs 96 kW to 147 kW. A hybrid model with a reported output of 224 kW has also been mulled.
