Look at this advert from Peugeot website on the new 508 which is based on the C5 chasis.

correction needed. the 508 is actually based on the 308 chassis which appears to be the primary & common chassis in their new range 308, 3008, 508 etc. The C5 appears to share a common chassis with the 407. Double wish bone front and multi link rear. This is a "costlly and complex" set up and offers very good driving dynamics. Grip gets better (up to a certain point obviously) the harder U can accelerate into a corner. The Alfa 159 is another good example for such a set up. FWD handles better with double wishbone design compared to Macpherson struts, though there are exception like the Golf GTI and Ford Mondeo.
