The front-wheel drive five-door liftback and station wagon of the D-class Peugeot 508 in the current version has been produced since 2018. The second-generation version has reached the stage of a planned upgrade for the 2023 model year, and it should be a solid one, as the model is noticeably losing ground in Europe.
And this is in the context of the gradual departure from the market of some serious competitors, who decided that liftback / station wagon cars are seriously inferior to crossovers in popularity.

By the way, matrix headlights are installed on the restyled Peugeot 508 2023, and the other equipment of such cars looks more than solid.
In the cabin, changes are an order of magnitude smaller. These are new, better finishing materials, and a new transmission selector. On the “electronics”, the software of the 10-inch head unit has undergone an update – now it is i-Connect Advanced in its latest version, which has both voice control and online capabilities. Finally, a new “picture” will appear in front of the driver on the dashboard, as they decided to change the graphics.
