A large family car offering a premium feel and extra safety, the 2019 Peugeot 508 Touring has recently been unveiled. With added practicality, the French brand has shown off the wagon version of the 508. If you didn’t catch all of the highlights, then read on!
A few of the design features include frameless doors and the integration of Peugeot’s high-tech i-Cockpit. Lending to a more premium feel, the inside of the 508 wagon features premium materials such as leather upholstery as well as a panoramic sun-roof and a 10-speaker Focal stereo.
Safety was also made a feature of the new 508 – the 508 Touring wagon includes adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, adaptive headlights, park assist and night vision which uses infrared technology to detect people beyond the scope of the headlights.
Another nifty selling feature is the amount of space. The rear seats can be folded flat – giving the 508 Touring a total cargo space of 1780-litres.
The 508 Touring will be offered in a range of petrol and diesel options that are matched to an eight-speed automatic transmission – while a plug-in hybrid petrol version will join the range later on.
The German-built Holden Commodore wagon is its closest comparison; however, the Peugeot 508 has generated a large amount of interest. While the Peugeot 508 wagon is set to go on sale in Europe at the start of 2019, Peugeot Australia has yet to announce whether the wagon will be on sale closer to home.
