The all-new 2019 Peugeot 508 Fastback has become spotted nationwide prior to its official market introduction, scheduled for August. Local buyers will probably be offered the sleek Fastback as well as suave new Sportswagon option.
An example was spotted on the transport truck today, heading for a pre-delivery yard in Sydney. It’s more likely the primary examples in the nation, and will probably be a demo for a dealership or potentially even start life like a press car.
At least initially, just the flagship GT will likely be offered australia wide, and yes it seems as if Australian buyers will be presented the ‘Spirone’ 18-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels. These include slightly different to the better 19-inch ‘Augusta’ wheels also offered over the GT overseas. We’re guessing the 19s is going to be optional.
Speaking of features, the GT will include a heap of new technologies from Peugeot. Chief among it is the latest third-gen i-Cockpit interface by having a 10.0-inch touch-screen for the dash, and a 12.3-inch digital display for the instrument cluster.
Perhaps more interesting would be the powertrain. The modern 508 GT in Australia will include the company’s new 1.6-litre turbo-petrol four-cylinder producing 165kW. A smaller tune 133kW version will also be offered. Anyway though, the engine is mated into a fresh Aisin-sourced eight-speed auto transmission with front-wheel drive. As you can imagine, it has to be a thrilling and delicate drive.
Full specs and has are expected to remain announced at at any time now, but prices formerly been confirmed get started on from $53,990 for any Fastback (excluding on-roads). Keep tuned in for more details.
