At the beginning of 2023, Peugeot refreshed its flagship model lineup, the 508, for both versions of it, the sedan and the station wagon, also known as the 508 SW.
Peugeot was one of the founders of the Stellantis family thanks to its big sales, and the 508 was one of its most important products. That lineup was introduced in 2018, and five years later, in 2023, it received a well-deserved update. But, apart from the exterior improvements, the car also benefited from some additional upgrades on its interior as well.
The car's front was heavily reworked and included a new design for the grille with a 3D pattern flanked by the two fang-like LED daytime running lights. In addition, the car sported new, slimmer headlights that were available with Matrix-LED technology. From its profile, the shooting-brake silhouette was enhanced by the raked-forward tailgate and a discrete roof spoiler above the rear windscreen. Last but not least, Peugeot redesigned the taillights, which sported a three-fang signature light pattern.
More upgrades were seen on the inside, where a 10" touchscreen for the infotainment system replaced the older 8" unit. Even though the car was a family hauler, it was available with high-bolstered bucket seats at the front, depending on the options. At the back, the same split-folding bench was installed.
Under the hood, Peugeot launched the vehicle with a choice of turbo-diesel, gasoline, and hybrid powerplants paired with either six-speed manuals or automatics, depending on the options.
