That, there. What was that? Did you feel it? A ghost of a breath through the barren trees? A fingertip trailing across a mirror-like lake. Could it be? The 2018 Peugeot 508? Yes, I believe in fact it is.

My soul died a little while back. I dragged it behind me by its hair for the remaining five miles and flung it somewhere on the abandoned railroad tracks by the creek. I haven’t seen it since—but this Peugeot gives me a flicker of hope that all might not be lost.

The lines. The curves. The interior. A compact steering wheel. A 10-inch screen. A heads-up display! What is this warmth that is seeping to the tips of my fingers?

Seriously, this is one of the best-looking modern interiors we’ve seen in some time.

What about this fastback sedan is making me see color again? Perhaps it is its multi-link rear axle? Or the 1.6-liter gasoline engine that has either 177 or 217 horsepower? Perhaps it is the eight-speed automatic? It’s for sure the six-speed manual option.

I thought my world had burned long ago. But from the ashes comes this Peugeot. This magnificent, French sedan that somehow makes everything a little more alright.

I am praying to gods, both known and unknown, for the 508 to come stateside. We need this in our lives.

The interior is nice. The exterior looks a lot like a Honda Accord.
