Peugeot has taken the wraps off the facelifted 508.
Looking more upscale than its predecessor, the facelifted model follows in the footsteps of the 108 and 308. As a result, the car has been equipped with a smaller grille, restyled LED headlights and a flatter hood. Out back, the changes are less noticeable but include a new rear bumper and restyled taillights.
The cabin is instantly recognizable but it features higher quality materials and a new center-console storage box. There's also a 7-inch touchscreen display with access to Peugeot Connect Apps which can provide everything from weather forecasts to information about nearby parking spaces. Other notable highlights include a four-zone climate control system, a JBL audio system and a heads-up display. There are also two new options including a rearview camera and a blind spot monitoring system.
Under the hood, two new engines will be available. On the petrol side, there's a 1.6-liter THP 165 with start / stop technology. Those looking for something more fuel efficient can opt for the new 2.0-liter BlueHDi 180.
The 2015 Peugeot 508 will be launched in Europe on September 10th. The model will also be offered in China and sales are slated to begin in January 2015.
