Talking about its design, the 508’s front fascia is sleeker and gets headlamps with vertical slat DRL, aggressive grille with prominent logo and contoured hood. Its has a chiseled bumper with wide air inlets
As expected from a sedan inspired by the Exalt concept, the 508’s sides look great. Along with the slopping roofline and fastback boot, the large alloy wheel gives it a distinct identity.
