Peugeot refreshed the second generation of its flagship model, the 508, after five years on the market to boost the car's sales.

The French automaker was part of the Stellantis family. It introduced the second generation of the 508 in February 2018. Come 2023, the automaker brought the facelifted version of this lineup. The car was not just another mid-size sedan on the European market; it was a statement that Peugeot targeted higher-profile clients.

At the front, the automaker installed a redesigned front grille with a 3D pattern flanked by two LED vertical lines for DRLs. The 508's slim headlights were available with Matrix-LED technology. The car's four-door coupe shape remained unchanged. Finally, at the back, the rear fascia was updated with redesigned taillights that sported three "fangs" on them.

Inside, the automaker installed a wide 10" touchscreen for the infotainment system. The front high-bolstered bucket seats provided adequate side support for their occupants, while at the back, the bench was most suitable for two occupants. Thanks to the car's long wheelbase, there was enough legroom for those seated in the back, and the center tunnel was short enough to accommodate a third passenger in the middle for short jaunts.

Under the hood, Peugeot launched the vehicle with a choice of turbo-diesel, gasoline, and hybrid powerplants. Besides the six-speed manual versions, the automaker also offered an eight-speed automatic transmission.
