The stylish and well-built Peugeot 508 is a good-to-drive saloon car that comes with a cost-effective range of engine options. This spacious and comfortable cruiser is available in Active, Allure, GT Line and GT trim lines.
The four-door 508 certainly looks the part, with its swooping roofline and classily-assembled front fascia. The vehicle rides on 17-inch alloy wheels as standard too and comes with a number of body-coloured fixtures that contribute to the vehicle’s air of sophistication. These include bumpers, door handles and door mirrors, the latter of which are electrically operated, folding and heated, an example of the 508’s many labour-saving features. The car also boasts automatic headlights, LED daytime running lights and claw-style LED tail lights.
A spacious and well-appointed five-person cabin provides front-row travellers with adjustable seating, and the driver with additional power-operated lumbar support. He or she can also get to grips with the car’s full-grain leather steering wheel, which also allows simple and safe control of a wide range of infotainment components. Other standard features include electric front and rear windows and automatic two-zone air conditioning, ensuring that an agreeable in-cabin climate is always easy to maintain.
A 1.6-litre 118bhp diesel
engine comes as standard with the 508 – and delivers optimal fuel efficiency. Attached
to a six-speed manual gearbox, it returns as much as 74.3mpg and CO2 emissions
as low as 99g/km. A 2.0-litre 118bhp diesel unit, paired with six-speed
automatic transmission delivers a good turn of pace, producing 295Nm of torque,
0-60mph in 8.5 seconds and a top speed of 143mph. Nevertheless, this engine still
manages to return up to 64.2mpg and a 110g/km emission figure.
In-car entertainment includes DAB radio and a CD player, while USB and AUX inputs and Bluetooth® connectivity provide further audio-listening options. The latter enables hands-free telephone communication too. Also featured as standard is a seven-inch multifunction colour touchscreen, which provides access to the car’s 3D Connected navigation system and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto services.
The 508 comes with a maximum five-star Euro NCAP crash-test rating, a sure indicator of its sterling safety credentials. The vehicle comes with a wide range of driver aids, such as Anti-lock Braking System and Electronic Stability Programme, as well as rear-mounted sensors that are an invaluable aid to parking. Three-point seatbelts and child-seat ISOFIX anchor points are among a wide range of passive safety features included to keep all on board as secure as possible.
