2019 Peugeot 508L At Guangzhou Show
2019 Peugeot 508L Stretches Out At Guangzhou Show
With the new generation 2019 Peugeot 508, Peugeot is in tune with the Chinese market trends by offering a long wheelbase version. But this 2019 Peugeot 508L is much more than this and is a third true body in the range, which will remain reserved for the Chinese market.
Since the launch of the Audi A6L in 2005, the principle of a step model for the Chinese market has gradually expanded. For all the sedans of the E segment, then D is also now C, but also for the SUV. With the new 508, Peugeot is in turn in this “L” trend. But if it offers an extended pitch of 50 mm (2848 mm), the 2019 Peugeot 508L goes much further.
Because it’s actually a fairly different body than the 508 sold in Europe. As the prototypes demonstrate, it is certainly taller and has framed doors. What to correct the sensitive subject of accessibility and habitability of the rear seats. The sedan also gives way to a separate trunk, and eventually, the 2019 Peugeot 508L produced by Dongfeng-Peugeot is 100 mm longer than the 508: 4856 mm. The difference is highlighted by a “tighter” chrome hood in the rear window.
The engine range will culminate with 1.6 Turbo 225 HP which will adopt the denomination 400 THP in China. Not presented in Guangzhou, the rechargeable hybrid version will be added throughout 2019.
