2018 Peugeot 508 Spawns Estate And RXH Variants Of The Digital Kind

In case you haven’t checked out the all-new Peugeot 508 yet, make sure to do that, because the French automaker has really pulled out all the stops with this latest generation of their mid-size sedan.

While it’s definitely a fresh departure from the old 508, the new model won’t grab such a large piece of Europe’s mid-size family car segment unless Peugeot also come up with not just one, but maybe two station wagon styles.

These renderings by Kleber Silva show the all-new 508 in both Estate as well as RXH form. In this format, the SW model would help the nameplate compete against the likes of the Opel/Vauxhall Insignia Sports Tourer, whereas the RXH would match up directly against the Insignia Country Tourer, biting off a piece of that outdoorsy family lifestyle pie.

Any new body style should still offer buyers access to the all-new 508’s modern features, such as its multiple driver assistance systems, which include the new night vision technology that can detect pedestrians at night and in poor visibility.

At launch, the engine range will hold two petrol units, rated at 180 PS (177 HP) and 225 PS (222 HP), as well as three diesels putting down 130 PS (128 HP), 160 PS (158 HP) and 180 PS (176 HP) respectively. Unfortunately, there’s no sign of an all-wheel drive system just yet.

    A wagon would be awesome.

      Don’t worry, it is coming. There are prototypes on the road.

    The whole statement just sounds wrong and out of place knowing these two are now the same company. Couldn’t another brand have been mentioned? Why would a company want to steal sales from itself?
