The approval of the type of vehicle for this model was issued in the spring of 2019. From the document it followed that the Russians relied on a new gasoline 1.6-liter turbo engine, deformed from 180 to 150 horsepower and a six-band “automatic”. However, the OTTS announced a 177-horsepower 2.0-liter diesel engine with an eight-band automatic transmission.
The timing of the appearance of the model in Russia, as well as preliminary prices, have not yet been announced. If the Peugeot 508 gets to our market, then its main competitors will be Kia Optima (from 1.3 million rubles) and Volkswagen Arteon, which should go on sale within 2020.
