The new Peugeot 508 sedan will debut on the Guangzhou Auto Show later this month and launch on the Chinese car market on January 2015, giving Peugeot a credible competitor in the hotly competed mid-size sedan segment. Price will start around 170.000 yuan and end around 240.000 yuan.
The Peugeot 508 is manufactured in China by the Dongfeng-PSA joint venture, alongside the Citroen C5. The China-made 508 will be available with two four-cylinder petrol engines: a 1.6 turbo with 167hp and 215nm, and a 18 turbo with 204hp and 280nm. Both engines will be mated to a six-speed automatic gearbox.
The Peugeot 508 is facing fierce competition from fine cars such as the Honda Accord, the Buick Regal, the Toyota Camry, and the Volkswagen Passat.
