Peugeot 508 GT launched in the GCC
Following the success of the 508, Peugeot introduced the all-new 508 GT in the GCC. With an output of 217 horsepower and 300 Nm of torque, the range-topping 508 GT also features a brand new 8-speed automatic transmission that sees the French brand cater to the more performance-inclined. Previously available in three trim levels, “Active”, “Allure”, and “GT-line”, the 1.6-liter turbo engine found in the all-new Peugeot 508 GT receives a significant power boost of 52 HP.
Rakesh Nair, Managing Director at Groupe PSA in the GCC, said: “The Peugeot 508 was a game-changer in the executive saloon segment, challenging premium automotive brands with its futuristic design language and cutting-edge technology. With the sporty 508 GT, we have introduced a model that solidifies our ambitions of providing our customers with the perfect balance between performance, comfort, and technology – it is the perfect embodiment of our driver-focused philosophy.”
Vertical LED daytime running lights to provide a distinct identity, and the bonnet has been lowered to enhance the dynamic look perfectly aligned with the brand’s design language. The roofline of the 508 GT is low and sleek, and the rear lights are framed in a glossy black horizontal strip that now features on many of Peugeot’s latest vehicles.
Inside the 508 GT is a refined, yet sporty interior and is fitted with comfortable AGR certified, red Nappa leather seats- or optionally black Alcantara & Nappa leather seats which envelops passengers in a soft, modern, refined environment.
The 508 GT will be available for customers in January 2021, with a 2022 model also coming to the region in March 2021. Customers can visit Swaidan Trading in Dubai and Omer Bin Youssef Group in Abu Dhabi, to get up close and personal with the new 508 GT.
