It seems that the French brand has done an excellent job of preventing any leaks about the new generation of the 508 sedan. There is no official information on this, but everything indicates that the car will be presented in the near future.
As reported by the portal Automotive News referring to “close to Peugeot sources,” the French are going to bring a new 508 to the international auto show in Geneva, which will open its doors early next month.
The novelty will receive look based on the concept cars “Instinct” and “Exalt”, presented by Peugeot in March of last year and October of 2014. The sedan will be built on the basis of a modular “cart” EMP2 (Efficient Modular Platform 2), which already lies in the basics of models 308, 408, 3008, 5008 and Partner III. It is based on high-strength steel, although in some places there are aluminum alloys and even composites. The platform also has the same floor shape, front suspension and engine compartment for all models.
Under the hood, the new Peugeot 508 will have the same power units as its neighbors on the platform. They will probably work with the reliable Aisin 6-speed automatic transmission.
