Looks very promising.

looks good... hopefully they won't ruin it wit excessive bling...
Looks great! I don't think they will, their new models have been subtle and cool in their own way. For the first time in over 10 years or more i find myself seriously considering buying Peugeots again.

Yeh, looks pretty good so far and as expected - Peugeot rarely gets their designs wrong.

Good shape, and given Peugeot#s latest track record, detailing should be tasteful and premium looking.

I'm still not certain the most conservative customers (those that stll choose miod sized sedans over CUVs) will appreciate the typical Peugeot small steering wheel below the instruments setup, but the car could be definitely one of the most interesting offerings in that segment, especially now that most other non premium sedans in Europe are aging....

I don't think Peugeot is aiming this at conservative customers. This segment is a niche nowadays and most people in Europe, or elsewhere where it will be sold, will usually go for a premium German brand, a Japanese brand or Korean so it's actually a good thing Peugeot is differentiating themselves in some ways. If the Mondeo dies, this will be the most popular choice for those not wanting a Passat i think..

I'm not saying that the Peugeot 508 customers will be the most conservative mid size shoppers, but in general those nowadays choosing a regular 4 door sedan over a CUV or even the wagon version (this one is however mostly for Europe) are probably still the most conservative customers in the market, not being interested in any of those nowadays so fashionable body styles;

That said, the whole segment lives mostly on company cars (even the premium offerings, in Europe), the segment leader Passat has in it's largest market Germany approx. 95% fleet customers (Austria, where I live, is very similar), the classic family man who used to buy one of those sedans 10 years ago will nowadays chose a Tiguan, Kuga/Escape, Kia Sportage or Sorrento, you know the list; Interestingly I find that the "premium sedan" is not their typical choice, that mostly is bought by people who used to have a hot hatch or smaller coupe before...

By the pictures, it looks like a hatchback to me. Another one then. I thing there is just the Passat left in four door form on European sedans of this size.

EDIT: i forgot the Talisman, but i see very few of those around here.

It makes me wonder what would have come to pass if PSA rescued Chrysler rather than Fiat. Assuming the illustration is accurate, that's one attractive sedan.
