The Peugeot 508 represents an affordable yet viable alternative to saloon cars produced by certain premium carmakers. The well-built 508 boasts an elegant body style and a comfortable and serene cabin, making it a great choice for families and executives alike.
The handsome 508 comes with an array of attractive exterior features as standard. For example, this four-door saloon rides on 17-inch alloy wheels, and is fitted with body-coloured fixtures that include power-folding and heated door mirrors, complete with integrated indicator lights. Further illumination includes LED daytime running lights that not only present an attractive light signature, but also ensure that the vehicle is easy for other motorists to spot. The car features tinted windows too, which significantly reduce the harsh glare of direct sunlight for occupants.
The 508 possess an upmarket and spacious cabin, which provides plenty of room for five adults to journey in comfort. Front-row travellers are provided with height-adjustable seats, and the driver further benefits from a tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel, which is also multifunctional and leather-wrapped. Sound-damping materials used in the construction of the car’s frame have resulted in a cabin that is virtually free of engine and wind noises. The ideal temperature is easy to arrive at, thanks to the inclusion of front and rear electric windows and automatic air conditioning (with two-zone climate control). The 508 features a 473-litre boot space, which increases to a 1,052-litre capacity when rear seats are folded.
An entry-level 1.6-litre diesel engine also happens to be the most fuel-efficient option available for the 508. This 120bhp unit returns an impressive combined 74.3mpg figure, and produces CO2 emissions as low as 99g/km. An optional 2.0-litre 181bhp diesel engine – which delivers 400Nm of torque and 0-60mph in 8.3 seconds – manages up to 67.3mpg, and produces a 110g/km emission figure.
Technology and safety
The vehicle comes with a seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system as standard, which includes a six-speaker stereo (with DAB radio) and satellite navigation (with 3D mapping). AUX and USB inputs and Bluetooth connectivity feature too, with the latter facilitating audio streaming and hands-free telephone communication.
The 508 has been awarded a full five-star rating by crash test specialists Euro NCAP, and it comes loaded with driver aids and passive safety features. Included are Cruise Control, which allows a maximum speed to be set ahead of each journey, and rear-mounted sensors that are an invaluable aid to parking.
