2019 Peugeot 508

Here are a few more pictures of the all new Peugeot 508.
(I wish they would release good pictures of the car. Instead of these cheesy semi-computer renderings.)

Although I am getting used to this conservative, yet elegant shape. It still looks a bit old to me.
The Mazda6 I am test driving this week is basically a 5 year old design that looks at least as good as this.
And the new Honda Accord has much more personality.
Its main French competition, the Renault Talisman, also looks more modern. 

Peugeot has mentioned that the 508 is indeed a hatchback. Even though they have not released pictures of the trunk open (Why???)
So this will compete directly with the Opel Insignia/Buick Regal. Now owned by the same company...

As for size, it is a bit shorter and lower than the previous model. And is about the same size as the Audi A5 Sportback

The car is a weird mix of a Mitsubishi Lancer and Dodge Charger, with a little cab forward Eagle Vision feel to it. Also, what's with that chrome stripe under the headlights? Looks like a scar, but apart from that the front end does pay homage to the glory days of Peugeot back in the seventies.
