Introducing the Peugeot 508
New 508 from PEUGEOT continues the brand's striking feline design language and enticing digital technological masterclass once again with this latest version.
Available in a saloon, SW and even a PEUGEOT SPORT ENGINEERED high performance version, there's bound to be a new 508 perfect for you.
The new 508 aims to present the best of PEUGEOT in terms of driving pleasure and comfort, complemented by multiple driving assistance systems to provide enhanced safety and ease of use, meaning time behind the wheel is more pleasant.
Read on to discover all the new 508 has to offer.
Design and Practicality
Up front, the new style PEUGEOT motif is integrated into the volume of the bumper, complemented by a new signature lighting system with three claws and extremely slim Matrix LED headlamps.
The rear is just as detailed with new LED lights, again in the signature 3-claw design with seamless scrolling indicator movements.
And not forgetting the all-important side profile, the new 508 sits on a crisp set of 17-inch 'MERION' two-tone diamond cut alloy wheels as standard, whilst 18-inch 'EPHERRA' two-tone diamond cut alloy wheels come on the 'GT' models.
Range-topping 'PEUGEOT SPORT ENGINEERED' versions come with 20-inch 'EXXAR' two-tone diamond cut alloy wheels for that extra stance and high performance look.
Each bodystyle of the new 508 offers plenty of practicality with saloon models offering between 487 and 1537 litres of boot space, whilst the SW ranges from 530 to 1780 litres.
Interior and Technology
You'll stay completely connected with the PEUGEOT 508 thanks to a wealth of technology on offer.
A mirroring feature allows the possibility to connect not one, but two phones via Bluetooth at the same time.
A 10-inch high-definition central screen is fully customisable and offers PEUGEOT i-Connect Advanced, which includes TomTom® connected navigation.
'OK PEUGEOT' voice command ensures you can speak and request your new 508 to complete actions, without having to take your hands off the wheel.
And complementing all this tech is a whole host of safety features, which will not only make driving safer but ensures the new 508 really is a technical showcase. Features available in the range include:
- Adaptive cruise control with stop and go function
- Automatic emergency braking
- Blind spot monitoring
- Night vision system
- Matrix LED headlamps
Economy and Performance
There's a few choices when it comes to engines and performance with the new PEUGEOT 508.
There's an entry-level 1.2-litre 3-cylinder petrol available in saloon and SW bodystyles, which produces 129bhp, returns a combined 50mpg and does 0 to 62mph in 10 seconds.
Then comes a pair of plug-in hybrid petrol engines with electric motors, one with 222bhp and one with 350bhp.
The only difference is that the latter is the 'PEUGEOT SPORT ENGINEERED' version, hence the spike in power to enable 0 to 62mph in just 5.2 seconds, whilst the 222bhp regular 508 takes 7.9 seconds. Again, these are both available as a saloon or SW.
The hybrids offer up to 34 miles of electric range, and provide economy of 274mpg and 158mpg combined respectively. This ensures whether you want economy or performance, you can tailor your new 508 to your exact needs.
Charging is possible with plug-in hybrid versions of the new PEUGEOT 508, in which an electric range of up to 40 miles will be available.
Charging takes approximately 1 hour and 40 minutes, when using a (32A) wallbox with an optional single phase on board charger (7.4kw).
Other charging options are available and will depend on methods selected.
