Peugeot sets wheels in motion with 508 prices
PEUGEOT yesterday announced prices and spec details for its new largefamily motor, the 508, which gets here in April.
Ex-works prices for the 407 replacement start at €24,850.
It comes as a saloon and station wagon (SW) in three trim levels.
Standard equipment includes air con, electric windows, front fogs, ESP, ASR, hill assist and a range of airbags.
Active adds rear parking aid, automatic wipers/headlights, Bluetooth, cruise control, electric child locks, bi-zone climate control.
And Allure adds keyless entry, leather upholstery, front-parking sensors, electric parking brake, and electric/heated front seats.
This has as big a cabin as the executive 607 – in other words much bigger than the 407.
The diesel engine line-up is: a 1.6-litre e-HDi 112bhp (Stop/Start) with an electronically controlled gearbox (€104 road tax).
Then there is the 1.6 HDi (112bhp) manual, 2-litre (140bhp) 6-speed versions (€156 road tax) and the 2- litre (163bhp) 6-speed automatic (€302 road tax).
The anticipated big sellers will be the 1.6-litre Active (112bhp) and the 2- litre HDI (140bhp) Active.
The range will get HYbrid4 technology next year.
This will have a HDi diesel engine at the front and an electric motor at the back. That will give it a 200bhp total power and, of course, four-wheel drive.
Emissions of 99g/km are targeted.
