Peugeot Australia has increased the appeal of its 508 diesel models by switching the large sedans and wagons to drive-away pricing.
Previously, the 508 diesel range kicked off with the Allure sedan at $43,990 plus on-road costs, but the carmaker has now sharpened the price to $44,990 drive-away.
That means 508 customers can expect to save around $5800 on the previous price, with similar savings to be found in the 508 Allure Touring wagon.
The Allure Touring sees the biggest saving - nearly $6000 - with the new drive-away price of $47,990, while the flagship 508 GT models have had their prices trimmed by over $3000.
A GT sedan is now priced from under sixty grand at $59,990 drive-away (down $3172), while the range-topping GT Touring is now priced from $62,990 drive-away - down $3471.
Both the 508 GT and GT Touring include Peugeot’s new BlueHDi 2.0 litre turbo-diesel announced last month by the French carmaker.
The new engine is Euro6 emissions compliant and sees fuel consumption drop to 4.4 l/100km - a significant improvement over the outgoing 2.2 litre unit’s 5.7 l/100km.
The smaller engine means less power however, with new outputs of 133kW and 400Nm (down from 150kW/450Nm).
Quoted savings are based around customers in New South Wales, so buyers wishing to learn more should contact their local Peugeot dealer.
Drive-away pricing on 508 diesel models is in place until November 30.
