2019 – PEUGEOT 508 ACTIVE
The new Peugeot 508 is already a reality and in a short time can be found in the dealers of the lion brand all over Europe. In some countries (like France) it is already on sale and soon it will be in other countries as well. The second generation of the French sedan debuted relatively recently during the last Geneva Motor Show 2018.However, as usual in these cases, Peugeot showed the new 508 in one of its most exclusive configurations. The GT Line and GT finishes will be positioned as the most exclusive and sporty versions that will be present in the line. With these finishes, the exterior of the Peugeot 508 2019 presents a dynamic, stylish and modern image. Traits such as the new LED lights for daytime running that mimic a lion’s tusks, grille and other chrome finishes are very relevant details.Now the question is what will be the most basic appearance of the Peugeot 508. Of course, in addition to the finishes marked, there will be other more basic and conventional options in the configurator of Peugeot. You can already find out what the Peugeot 508 Active will look like. The finish placed as the option to access the line of the new 508 will be the finish Active and in the images you can see how this configuration will be.
At first glance the Peugeot 508 Active has a much more bland and conventional exterior. Although the new front and back reveal quickly that we are facing the new generation of the 508, the truth is that it loses much of the elements and features younger. The Active finish also features several own elements that will not appear in other versions.On the front of the new Peugeot 508 Active comes a grid with three horizontal bands. The huge daytime LED lights in the shape of ‘prey’ were replaced by metal parts and within the headlights themselves three lanes of LEDs were included to do this function. On the otherhand, the rearview mirror housings are finished in the same color as the body.Other details specific to this finish are the 16-inch alloy wheels and the side window edges that were made of aluminum. And completing the exterior view of the Peugeot 508 Active, on its rear new design flashlights do not use Full LED technology and do not exhibit a 3D effect. The truth is that 508 loses much of its essence.Regarding the interior, we do not have images of the cabin, but it is possible to point out that the Active finish (and also the Allure) will have an 8.0-inch touch screen for the infotainment system, a more basic instrument panel and a 100 % of fabric for benches and other interior elements.
