Peugeot’s large 508 sedan and wagon pair will debut a subtle makeover in the coming months, with this first leaked photo offering an early look at what’s to come.
Surfacing in the Chinese press, this image reveals that the 2015 model will get Peugeot’s squared-off new grille design, sitting above - in this vehicle’s case - a simple black insert.
The 508’s revised headlights will feature the same stepped design worn by other new Peugeot models, and a new bumper design can also be seen.
Changes to the rear styling have yet to be revealed, although we could see a minor update to the bumper and tail-light assemblies there.
Changes in the still-fresh cabin will likely be limited to new trim and garnishes, although a larger display and a new steering wheel could also appear.
The 2015 model’s mechanical package is not expected to see any standout changes, with existing petrol, diesel and hybrid systems likely to carry over with minor updates.
The 508, Peugeot’s rival to the likes of the Volkswagen Passat, made its Australian debut in 2011 and is available with a 1.6 petrol turbo and a pair of 2.0 and 2.2 litre diesel options.
Peugeot's large sedan has been a slow mover in 2014, with year-to-date sales of 119 less than half the 270 sales achieved for the same period in 2013.
Watch for the updated model to appear in the coming weeks, with an Australian debut likely to occur late this year or early in 2015.
