Peugeot unveils new 508 at Paris show

Peugeot's new 508 arrives in April, priced at around €25,000.

What is it?

The 508 is the replacement to the 407 and arrives in Ireland in April 2011. The new car will feature a 1.6-litre HDi engine at the heart of the range with Band B emissions. 

Why's it here?

This is a hugely important car to the French firm and Peugeot is on its home turf in Paris, so it is quite a big deal. In the metal this car is huge, closer in size to the old 607. Inside the quality is impresive. 

Show stopper or floor filler?

This is quite a significant car and while the segment is very crowded and dominated by the Toyota Avensis and Volkswagen Passat you would have to assume that the new interest in Peugeot as a brand is likely to bring in sales for the 508.
