2018 Peugeot 508 spied

The next-generation Peugeot 508 has been spotted doing a spot of testing in southern Europe. While the current 508 has reportedly sold reasonably in its native France or some other European countries, the new car will look to expand its appeal elsewhere with a sportier fastback-style rear-end. Aside from its move into Volkswagen Arteon territory, the new 508 will continue the subtly handsome styling theme of recent Peugeot models.
