2011 Peugeot 508

Last Updated:

The new 508 sedan will be replacing the current 407 when it comes out.
But there are now rumors that it might also be replacing the larger 607 model.
The 607, like most large Peugeot models, has never been very popular. At these prices, it is hard to get European buyers out of their BMWs and Mercedes.
Many European no luxury brands abandoned the idea of large luxury models before. Like Opel and Ford.

Seems like Peugeot is finally giving up too…

  1. i'm so glad to see the peugeot lion logo moving down to the grille again. i've always found it terribly awkward as it's own little rhombus on the hood, like the awkward little hoodscoop on the '58 Fords. i've always loved large Pugs too. the 604 of the '70s was a fabulous luxury car, with a ride that bordered on cloud-like. it had the slowest power windows in the history of the world, when they were working at all, but no car back then had the reliability of the lowliest Hyundai Accent of today, so i don't hold it against them. i wish there was a chance for the US to offer Pugs again, but i doubt it will happen any time soon.

  2. It's logical, I don't think the 607 has many customers outside of French government officials (and they can also choose the much cooler Citroën C6). In fact, I don't think many people even know it exists. And given the steady increase in size of European sedans in recent years, there wasn't going to be much of a gap between the two models anyway

  3. Your right it's not the same. But that don't mean it ain't ugly. The headlights reminds me of the Kia KCV-3 concept.
