2019 Peugeot Australia - Peugeot 508

Peugeot’s highly-awarded, all-new 508 has arrived in Australia. The all-new 508 arrives with impressive credentials, having already amassed numerous design and motoring awards, including a ‘2018 Most Beautiful Car of The Year’ award. Rob Fraser went along to the launch

After a chequered history in Australia over the last few years, Peugeot is definitely back and the 508 solidifies its position. Offered in Australia in two body styles, a stunning fastback and the practical yet beautiful Sportswagon, which is my favourite. Powered by a 1.6L 4 Cylinder turbo petrol engine mated to an 8 speed automatic. It feels a touch underpowered off the mark, but simply hums along when on the move and has excellent chassis dynamics providing an engaging driving experience

Compared to its predecessor the all-new 508 is lighter, lower and shorter yet offers greater interior space, more technology, better fuel economy and a sophisticated ergonomically friendly interior.

Priced from a shade under $54,000 plus the usual costs and with a complete 5 year owner benefit package, there is some strong competition in a shrinking market segment, with vehicles such as the Mazda6 , VW Passat and Subaru Liberty not to mention the other European brands that are more expensive, but the 508 is definitely worth a drive.
