New Peugeot 508: These Are (Likely) The First Official Photos

When the doors open at the Geneva Motor Show next month, Peugeot will be among the dozens of automakers showcasing their new metal.

The French marque is anticipated to unveil a completely new 508, ushering a new design language into production. But before it does, we appear to have our first look at the forthcoming sedan – however limited that glimpse may be.

Revealed by Peugeot Heritage on Facebook, this black-and-white image shows what appears to be the Lion marque’s new flagship sedan. At least, that’s what the license plate would lead us to believe.

The most distinguishing trait we can make out from this high-contrast image is the left taillight, which appears to encompass three sets of four LED strips at a vertically biased diagonal angle. (We’d wager the other side tilts in at the opposite angle.)

Hard as it may be to tell, it looks like the sedan will indeed embody an angular design like what we saw on the Instinct concept at last year’s Geneva show. However we’ll have to wait a little while longer to get a clearer picture – both literally and figuratively – of what the production model will look like.

For those unfamiliar, the 508 currently serves as the flagship of Peugeot’s sedan lineup. The current version replaced both the 407 and 607 with a solitary model in between when it debuted in 2011.

We’re expecting Peugeot’s sister-brand Citroën to reveal its own version – likely to carry the C5 badge – at the same show. Watch this space for more, and thanks to our readers Forza and David for sending in the tip!

    • Shobin Drogan

      In what possible way does it resemble either of those brands?

    • R55

      No this actually looks interesting, it look nothing like a German car/

        Rear door( with hoffmeister kink) ,rear bumper and general design copy from BMW and taillight lines copy from vw passat (only different is led lights )

  • Dariush

    if it has decent proportions it might be cool, just as the 3008 turned out to be…It wont be nearly as cool as the Exalt concept, but this shot is fairly promising

  • Luke Mclucho

    she will be unveiled on february 22

      Wow!! A free piano with every car!!

    • Honda NSX-R

      Oh shit that’s an impressive looking interior

    • Wayne Alan Carr Heyes

      OMG WHAT AN INTERIOR

    • TheHake

      I hope they keep the big mushroom E-stop for the production version! …….

  • Christian

    I feel this gonna be some “China (Say it like trumps says China) only model.

    • Salih Ahzem

      Peugeot would not debut a “China only” model in Geneva most probably.

      • Christian

        Said the same when they showed the 308 sedan…Loook it up

  • C172fccc

    The rear of the car looks similar to the Mitsubishi Lancer.

  • Adi

    It has frameless windows. Interesting…

    • Ilbirs

      Maybe these frameless windows represent some economy of scale and allow to use the same four doors in both sedan and wagon bodies, just replacing the glasses according to the body in order to have the windows following the roofline. This is what I’d call a classy economy of scale if confirmed that a wagon would use the same four doors of the sedan.

    The tail lights scream Mustang with its 3 and 3 pattern.

    • Wilfread Brühl

      Well it just reminds me Peugeot 504 Coupé/Cabriolet from the late 60’s, early 70’s. Not only the Mustang had these tail lights.

      • rodriguez256

        True, however the Mustang is more Iconic and know for the tri bar taillights. I’m sure there are probably other cars that have had these as well. They’re just more synonymous with Mustangs.

      • rodriguez256

        Also they really remind me of the 99-04 Mustang taillights just cut in half. Actually looks like the Lancer shape shape Mustang tri lights mixed together. I’m not saying they’re copying anyone, since like they did have the design before. Just that the design reminds me of those things.

      • Marty

        Yep, Peugeots have had that kind of striped tail lights to and from for years. Especially for the last few years.

  • Autoexperte

    Puegeot has a better quality level than the Germans and the better design, actually a premium brand

  • Kagan

    What I heard of it is the same platform as today’s car?

    • 2sfhim

      Will be on the latest platform

      • Kagan

        and the the latest platform could mean anything. 🙂

        • 2sfhim

          The latest current platform is the EMP2 for medium and large cars. The current small platform is the old PF1 which will soon be replaced by the CMP.

    • DMJ

      No, it will be based on the EMP2 Platform, the same from 3008, 5008 or DS7.

  • MAYBE A TAG THAT SAID “OLD 508” WOULD HAVE KEPT IT SECRET.

  • LWOAP

    It has “New 508” on the license plate. It’s pretty much a dead giveaway.

  • Six Thousand Times

    Looks classy – from what I can see.

  • erly5

    If Peugeot’s recent form is anything to go by, then this could be their best looking saloon since the 405!

    • Luke Mclucho

      406 was very good !

  • Shobin Drogan

    Usually spy shots make the car look uglier than it really is. But even as a spy shot this car looks jaw dropping!

  • DMax

    I’m not seeing what people are seeing in this comment section. This car looks boring af. Suitable for taxi duty.

  • Tinky-Winky

    Simple yet elegant and aggressive. I like it.
