Days after we reported on Peugeot' plans for the Indian market, we have more news to share on the 508.

Peugeot has released pictures of the Chinese market 508. For the European market, Peugeot had showcased their car last year in Paris. We expect the 508 landing here shortly to be visually similar to the Chinese model. Under the bonnet, Peugeot will provide a wide range of petrol and diesel engines ranging from 1.6- to 2.0-liter in displacement. Engine options for the Indian market is still unclear, a diesel engine is a must if it has to successfully counter the force of the 20 lakh rupee Passats and Superbs.
