Buying Opel will not alter the book either route PSA: Peugeot continues with the next evolution of its 508 model based part of its charm in a spectacular design.
The Opel Insignia has not been the model has closed the doors a future Citroen C5, much less it’s close to the next Peugeot 508. This has been confirmed Lauren Blanchet, Peugeot product manager. The road book was already defined before PSA acquire Opel, Peugeot and Citroën and both follow the path marked out years ago. Is a natural evolution according to the market supply and demand. So, not expect a next C5 format saloon, because this name will become a concept SUV derived from Aircross Citroen C5. Similarly, not expect a traditional Peugeot 508, but a spectacular saloon whose charm will be based on the design and technology on board.
Peugeot, however, confirms not wanting to make a car Premium, but the best of general, leaving DS take the place that belongs cover. So, the development of next Peugeot 508 sedan as the next DS will run in parallel, although the Peugeot sedan will before sale. Half 2018 will be the date of putting action, not on the scene, since his official debut is expected at the Geneva Motor Show next year.
Before seeing the production car, we will see an approximation of the actual design through another concept whose base is none other than the spectacular Peugeot Concept Instinct. Lines, therefore, breakers, athletic, unusual in its category… As the Peugeot 3008 or 5008, another new before and after for the brand. Be clearly larger and wide the current model, but also somewhat lower, hinting at a coupé profile in your body will be an very much in line behind the new Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo in its familiar body variant, in both cases, "covered" by a huge panoramic roof Glazing.
Although the Instinct Peugeot Concept provided a clear view of the future technology, especially in Regarding autonomous driving, in the next Peugeot 508 only functions implemented yet "basic", equivalent to those offered Volvo or Mercedes in its upper ranges. We see also tables with holographic technology instruments, such as the Concept Instinct, but yes a spectacular interpretation of i-Cockpit based on new graphics and gestural control functions.
Although PSA has a new organ bank that can assist with, the future Peugeot 508 used exclusively home technology. So, under the skin we find a new EMP2 decline of architecture, in its version of longest of all the possible battle and in which a new multilink rear axle evolution that will mount the next DS 7 Crossback, who will be used will share much of the engine range, including a Plug-in hybrid which combines a gasoline engine and electric motor for global power 300 hp, 4×4 traction and autonomy in electric mode 60 km.
Although ambitious, the engine range of the Peugeot 508 will focus on engine volume ,. So, your Diesel will have as its starting point the new 130 hp 1.5 BlueHDi, followed by 2.0 BlueHDi which two possible variants, one with expected 180 hp and other well over 200 hp. Gasoline is more than likely that the 1.2 PureTech enhanced above the current 130 hp, is the engine of access, followed by prolífero 1.6 THP with 180 hp and 225. Both the diesel engine as the most powerful petrol will be associated exclusively to new automatic gearbox with torque converter 8 relationships, option for other engines.
