It will probably something on the line of the Arteon or the A7. No classic sedan, then. Given this a type of car that is not selling well nowadays, it could very well make a lot of sense to have a more niche, and therefore prized higher, car.

Agreed. What i like about the French is that they are willing to put effort into making these 'flagship' models despite them knowing they will mostly sell in their homemarket and probably end as fleet-cars in other parts. It's a matter of pride and passion. Same as with certain models the Italians make. Not everything needs to make sense or appeal to all.

In many ways that's what i also like about some US brands like Cadillac.

I like what I see so far; But somehow, that leaked rear end doesn't seem to have frame less dorrs, whilst the font end sot does; Which of course makes no sense. So probably still mostly photo shops. As much as I would love tos see framelss doors (IMO anything calling itself a 4 door coupe should at least have them), I doubt we will really see them on the production car, most pof the spy hsots suggest the rear end shot is the legit leak...

All the images (even of the rear) suggests that the doors are frameless. Unless I need glasses (which admittedly sometimes I do). Looks great so far.

So leaked? Found these on worldscoop forums, I did not circle the grill the person who posted them did, but I feel they think there are 2 grills? I think it is just the red paint reflecting off the chrome girll.





Front looks great, not sure how I feel about the 508 on the hood, hopefully this is not a feature on all future models. As for the side, it doesn't feel as exciting or dynamic as the front in my opinion, almost as if the front and side are from separate cars.

Looking forwards to the high res photos.

Yea i think it might just be the reflection from the paint. The "508" badge on the front bonnet is a nod to the old Peugeots like the 504, but the rear reminds me of Mitsubishi Lancer though.

Underwhelming. I feel like everyone's been hyping this so much, and it lands with a huge dud... The front is both generic and awkward. The head lights re a weird disjointed shape (not wacky like other Peugeots, just dated looking) and DLR tears are just not working. That joint between the headlamp and the continuing line just ruins it.

The profile is nothing like the concept, save for the strangely placed stamp on the front door. The rear is just fine. The interior is a homerun as expected based on all of Peugeot's current interiors. I would say that's the stand-out feature.

Overall not enough French quirkiness or elegance so it falls into the middle zone of anonymity imo. Hoping the live pics spruce it up.

The concept for comparison:

Anonymity is not a bad thing, but this one is definitely not anonymous. Examples of anonymous are older Japanese cars and everything from VAG (except Bugatti).

The problem with the 508, and with most other Peugeot concept-production transitions is that the concepts were RWD, whereas the production car are FWD.
