Although the facelifted 508 is not a radical design departure from the current crop of Peugeots, it does evolve the family look with some new elements that we will see on future models, like a larger grille that places the Peugeot 'lion' badge at its centre. The upgraded saloon is also set apart by new headlights and a redesigned bonnet that has a more horizontal look, while the rear end gains a more distinguished bumper and a 'claw' effect in the taillights.

The whole intention is to move Peugeot's D-segment offering upmarket and this can also been seen in the cabin textures and new features like a seven-inch touchscreen that serves as a gateway to a whole new generation of connected services and apps.

European buyers get to choose from a wide range of petrol and diesel engines, including a revised 1.6-litre turbopetrol that sees its output rise from 115kW to 121kW while efficiency is improved too, with corresponding CO2 emissions dropping from 144g/km to 131g/km.

At this stage Peugeot SA has no plans to bring the new 508 to South Africa.
