2011 Peugeot 508 Photos Leak Online; Worthy Successor of Peugeot 407

July 12, 2010, By Alex Ion

The sleek 2011 Peugeot 508 is ready to take the Peugeot 407 off the production lines, or at least that’s what many believe after laying their eyes on two leaked images with the four wheeler in its full glory — both the sedan and the SW models.

For now there’s  nothing official regarding the new Peugeot 508, except for the fact that it’s making its debut at the International Salon in Paris, this October (with the wagon version seeing daylight at a later time).

From what we’re hearing, the Peugeot 508 is to feature a start/stop engine system and a Hybrid4 diesel flagship with lithium-ion battery technology. But other than that, under the hood is the same 1.6L petrol turbo that is featured in Citroen and MINI vehicles, a 119 kW (160 bhp / 162 PS) 2.0 HDI and a 177 kW (237 bhp / 240 PS) engine.

And all these are meant to deliver better fuel efficiency for the Peugot 508, but that’s not all. Apparently the new model is also more spacious compared to the 407 model.

The 2011 Peugeot 508 will start selling before the year’s end in Europe, with the UK getting their hands on it, in early 2011.
