Sure looks very nice, i especially like the side lines also the fastback rear end, hope it drives and lasts like its older brothers.

The chinese version may be more like a regular sedan with no hatch and a longer wheelbase.

I don't like recent peugeot designs, somehow they look out of propulsion, even the 407 coupe looks ugly to me, the new 508 i can se my self driving one day.

Not convinced I like it, but it's an improvement on the recent super ugly Peugeot sedans.

The "NEW" and updated Peugeot 508 series appears to be quite an improvement over previous 407 and 508 designs.  I'm impressed with the overall exterior and interior photos of the 508.  However,  the rear of the car appears to be more Japanese design compared to European design.  I prefer to see the license plate between the rear lights and not integrated into the rear bumper.  The "NEW" 508 Estate/Sport Wagon appears to be no larger than a hatchback.  Peugeot should reinvent the "large" wagon and utilize their previous expertise in extended chassis wagons such as the Peugeot 404, 504 and 505 series.  Although Peugeot's design studio develops some fine motor cars.  Peugeot should utilize the design expertise of Pininfarina to better their designs and make them above and beyond a "generalist" manufacturer.  Back in the 1970's and 1980's Peugeot was referred to as "The French Mercedes."  One Mercedes-Benz of North American employee once stated that if Peugeot Motors of American knew how to market their cars correctly, (especially the Peugeot Diesel wagons), Mercedes-Benz would have a direct competitor for about half the price of their cars.  If Hyundai and Kia can excel in the North American, Peugeot Motors of American should be able to be successful with a combination of super reliable products, outstanding warranties, high quality U.S./Canadian dealers with exclusive showrooms/service areas for Peugeots only and a corporation that fully supports the dealers and customers.

Volvo has re-invented itself with some amazing designs and innovative powertrains.  Their current sales are off the charts with unprecedented growth.  Subaru is also coming out with the new Ascent 7 seater CUV that will likely blow up sales wise...

This is an interesting article that speaks to Peugeot's focus on ride sharing - Have to admit that in large urban centers this plan seems to make an awful lot of sense:  https://shift.newco.co/this-is-how-big-oil-will-die-38b843bd4fe0
