Representing the latest in Peugeot's new design language, the 508 is a saloon that also takes advantage of developments in performance and ecological consideration.
The 508 has been created to have the full power of a saloon, while still maintaining low emissions during use. Motorists will be impressed by the 508's environmental concerns as well as its sleek looks and updated design features.
Increased vehicle size gives the 508 a look that is solid and reliable, leaving no doubt as to the vehicle's performance potential from the very first glance. Updated visual features include the front grille, redesigned bumpers, and LED daytime running lights. Motorists can choose between 18 and 19-inch alloy wheels depending on preference.
Within the cabin of the 508, Peugeot's choice of materials makes the comfort and luxury of the interior immediately clear. Marston Tramontane half-leather upholstery is both functional and decorative, as are the electrically adjustable heated front seats. A DAB Digital Radio with Bluetooth® and CD playing functions is included, as is satellite navigation. These are controlled through the use of the 508's seven-inch multifunction colour touchscreen. Air conditioning comes by way of automatic dual-zone technology, which provides separate temperature control for the occupants of the front seats.
Three economical yet powerful diesel engines are available to power the 508 line, along with an even more fuel-frugal and environmentally friendly diesel-hybrid unit. The 1.6 litre HDi motor with 115bhp is available in manual or semi-automatic EGC transmission, whilst the 2.0 litre, 2.2 litre and hybrid editions all come with a six-speed automatic gearbox. Each engine offers a vigorous performance - particularly the 2.2 litre HDi, the 204bhp of which can thrust it from a standstill to 62mph in 8.8 seconds. The Hybrid4 diesel-electric powertrain, meanwhile, achieves phenomenal combined fuel economy of 80.7mpg and just 105g/km of CO2 emissions.
The interior of the 508 also features a full suite of airbags, including front and side airbags for the driver and front passenger. Drive safety systems include Electronic Stability Programme (ESP) with Traction Control, Dynamic Stability Control, Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), and Emergency Braking Assistance (EBA). These work together to ensure vehicle stability and handling in all situations, allowing the driver full control even in adverse driving conditions.
