Peugeot introduced the 2015 Peugeot 508 Facelift, an evolution of its well-known grand tourer in the D segment. As you can see from the photos, the 2015 Peugeot 508 arrives with a new front grille that features the Peugeot Lion at its centre, redesigned front lamps, a new bonnet but also new rear lamps.
Inside, we find a new 7-inch touch screen that groups together most of the vehicle’s functionalites and a new closed-storage box. As an option, Peugeot offers the Head-Up Display, Keyless Entry and Starting, automatic electric parking brake, automatic headlamp dipping, quad-zone automatic air conditioning, a JBL sound system as well as Blind Spot Sensors and a reversing camera.
The Peugeot Connect Apps helps the driver with practical information in real time, such as free parking spaces nearby, fuel prices, traffic and weather information, as well as tourist information from the Michelin Guide or TripAdvisor. The suspension system was also enhanced for the 2015MY in order to deliver a better driving experience.
Under the hood, we find petrol and diesel engines of the latest generation. Peugeot offers a new 1.6-liter THP 165 Stop & Start engine bolted to a six-speed manual transmission or the new EAT6 six-speed automatic gearbox. The 1.6-liter THP 156 engine is now replaced by the new 165 bhp engine that reduces CO2 emissions to 131 g/km, from 144 g/km.
Peugeot also offers the 2.0-liter BlueHDI 150 engine bolted to a 6-speed manual transmission that emits onlu 105 g/km of CO2. The new 2.0-liter BlueHDI 180 engine is offered with the new EAT6 six-speed automatic transmission and emits only 111 g/km of CO2.
Peugeot continues to offer its Hybrid4 technology on the 508 Saloon and the 508 RXH. These models use a 2.0-lityer HDI Diesel engine that delivers 163 bhp and sends the power to the front wheels, as well as a 37 bhp electric motor that drives the rear wheels.
These models have a fuel consumption of just 3.3 l/100 km/h (85.6 UK mpg), while CO2 emissions are 85 g/km.
