While it's only being driven by automotive journalists for the first time this month, German motoring publi- cation Auto Zeitung' has already given the new Peugeot 508 its first prize in its Auto Trophy awards, ahead of 18 rival models in the import Mittelklasse' segment. The 508 garnered 18.2 percent of votes in its category beating 18 com- petitors to gain its prize. The 508's shape is evolved from a company show car called the SR1, and while it eschews the krille-eating wide- mouthed looks of the cur- rent 407, it's just as striking and perhaps a little less intimidating. Peugeot says its shape is very much French chic, equally at home in Paris or London -- or our own capital for that mat- ter.The 508 will be pow- ered by a range of engines all well positioned in their categories in terms of performance and driveability, but also fuel consumption and CO2 emissions with Peugeot's new e-HDi stop and start system which offers improved driveability and economy enhancements of up to 15 percent. Some time after its launch, Peugeot's HYbrid4 technology will become available on the 508 and will provide 160kW, performance with all-wheel drive and emissions of 99g/km of CO2 or zero in electric mode. The Peugeot 508 will be available in two body styles: a sedan measuring 4.79 metres and a station wagon two centimetres longer. Both models will be produced in Rennes, France, for the European and export markets and later this year in China, for the Chinese market. Both petrol and turbodiesel versions of the car will be available, though the New Zealand specfications have not yet been finalised. An optional six-speed two-pedal electronically controlled manual gearbox (EGC) will be featured and this results in the 1.6 HDi power car managing an emissions rating of just 109g/km. Turbo and naturally aspirated 1.6-litre petrol fours are available as well as turbodiesel units of 1.6, 2.0 and 2.2 litres. At this point neither petrol nor diesel V6 power units are on the horizon. The 508 is available with two different front suspension configurations. An all- new pseudo McPherson type front suspension will be on the majority of 508s while a GT model features a drop link double wishbone front set-up that separates suspension and steering forces for the high per- formance model's necess- ary higher road holding and steering needs. At the rear a multi- arm suspension is used for all 508s, with Peugeot citing better body control and ride comfort thanks to the system's inherently superior control of longi- tudinal and transverse forces. The 508 goes on sale in Europe in the northern hemisphere Spring, while our own versions are due in July.
