2019 Peugeot 508. The designers from Peugeot say that their largest car brand is deserving for an update but as the car is still doing well an immediate one is not needed. But they are predicting an updated as necessary for the upcoming period which is the 2019 when the current model will expire. That is when the next generation model is being prepared for and as it appears that are already making preparations for it. After a longer period of waiting, Peugeot Company is finally bringing its new 2019 Peugeot 508. The time has passed after its last redesign and now is a perfect time for much-needed makeover. Automaker is bringing new Peugeot 508 to the next level. So, it will easily stay in line with its main rivals such as Volkswagen Arteon, Opel Insignia and BMW 3 Series. New Peugeot will represent the next-second generation of this model. Therefore, it will come with stylish exterior design, improved interior and new platform too. Automaker also promises better driving capabilities. This all new and handsome mid size sedan will surely be something special in all the segments. It will definitively get attention among customers worldwide.
What the announcement with the 2019 Peugeot 508 are concerned with is to make the car more competitive in the market. As the people from Peugeot have stated they are looking to make the car different but not overtly so. Keeping the car familiar will also get to keep the fan base, which they cannot afford in losing. But they do want to make the car fresh and that is why the current look will mainly be updated and modernized. There were some indications that the next-generation 2019 Peugeot 508 models is going to be a four-door coupe body style car. They are suggesting that they might go this direction instead of a conventional sedan variant. This is the same way that some Mercedes cars have gone in, namely E-Class and CLS-Class have received the same kind of updates. If they plan to copy the same formula it just might prove to be very useful for the car’s new appearance. The introduced changes for the interior of the 2019 Peugeot 508 are not that visible as there are far less pictures about the interior than the outside of the car. But we assume that the inside is going to be treated the same way as the inside is.
We can expect to see some elements which are being updated in a much more comfortable fashion and also some hallmark features of Peugeot cars will be brought back as well. The lend of its in-house design cues and a generic but modern type of design is what graced the previous model. This was introduced for the last update for the car and did wonders for it. The buttons around the center consider are not as tidy as you might think, which actually sounds a bit refreshing for the brand. There were some bad parts in terms of plastic inserts that we did not like, but hopefully the 2019 version will address those issues and bring in more quality pieces and materials on the inside. The announcement of a newly EMP2 architecture platform used for the 2019 Peugeot 508 might also indicate that the car might feature different dimensions. As we are sure that the current curb weight will decrease, we are not quite sure if it is going to be the same as far as other dimensions of the car. The current stats say 1456mm height, 4792mm length, 1853mm width and 143mm ground clearance.
As far as the engine goes, we assume that the 2019 Peugeot 508 model is going to continue using the same kind of engine as before, but will update it and provide more power. The current 1.6-liter TURBO 4 engine is able to make 121 horsepower and provide 240 nm of torque, and those numbers will perhaps be expanded as well. We also think that the car is going to transfer the power to the front wheels of the car using a different kind of transmission or at least update the 6-speed automatic from last time. The recent updates are going to help the 2019 Peugeot 508 get better accelerating rates and give it a boost. The last engine was capable of achieving 0-60 mph in 11 seconds, a feat which could easily be broken if some expert engineering is made. Expect the acceleration for the next-generation model to be closer to the 10 second mark.
Regarding fuel economy ratings, the 2019 Peugeot 508 has not been rated still and will be given the EPA ratings once the drivetrain is established. But we are looking forward for the car to have better economy ratings. The current model is not as good as one would think as it makes 67.3 mpg as a combined rating. But with the changes and also with the news of a new platform being introduced, we can perhaps get so see a much more fuel-efficient car compared to the last one. The newest 2019 Peugeot 508 will include a slew of safety features. These are going to be in accordance with the European standards of automotive safety and the vehicle is going to be mainly based on the previous additions that were made. That said we can prepare for some active safety equipment and full on airbags as well for the car which can give a bigger rating for the car. For now we can speculate that the model is going to get high safety equipment but until the testings are done there are no official confirmation.
2019 Peugeot 508 should be presented to the world later this year. However, it probably won`t go on sale before the beginning of 2019. There are many speculations about the price of new 508. Since there is no official information, we can only guess. So, we believe that it should start at $36,000.
