Peugeot 508 Touring now available in GT PDF Print E-mail

Following the success of the 508 GT sedan comes the all-new 508 Touring GT. The 508 Touring GT is in showrooms now.

While GT models gain extra equipment, the highlight of the model is the inclusion of the 2.2-litre HDI engine.

The 2.2-litre diesel engine is only available in GT models while the 508 Allure and Active models have either the 1.6-litre e-HDi engine, 2.0-litre turbo diesel or 1.6-litre turbo petrol.

With 150kW of power and 450Nm of torque the 508 Touring GT completes the 0-100km/h dash in 8.4 seconds, more than a second quicker than the Touring Allure.

GT models also feature unique front suspension with double wishbone suspension with drop link hub carrier instead of the Macpherson type struts of the Touring Allure models.

Extra equipment over the Allure model includes: 18-inch alloy wheels, adaptive main beam headlights, colour head up display, directional bi-Xenon headlights with auto height adjustment and headlight washers.

Specification and options for the all-new 508 Touring GT are in-line with the GT sedan with the exception of the electric tailgate which is available as a $1000 option on Touring GT as well as Touring Allure.
