2012 Peugeot 508 GT Touring now available in Australia

Up until now, the Peugeot 508 GT, with the high-output HDi turbo-diesel engine, has only been available in sedan format. Welcome to the 2012 Peugeot 508 GT Touring.

Featuring the same GT character, with various sporty highlights and up-market details, the Peugeot 508 GT Touring comes with the 2.2-litre turbo-diesel HDi four-cylinder engine. It produces 150kW of power and 450Nm of torque, and is capable of sprinting from 0-100km/h in 8.4 seconds (8.2 seconds in the sedan).

Like the sedan, the GT Touring comes with the GT-exclusive double wishbone front suspension instead of the Macpherson struts used on all other 508 variants.

The GT Touring also gets 18-inch alloy wheels, a colour head-up display, electric front seats with driver memory functions, and adaptive main beam directional bi-Xenon auto height adjustment headlights.

All options are consistent with the 508 GT sedan options, only the Touring is available with an optional $1000 electric tailgate.
