Engines and Driving Experience

Peugeot 508, Rear

For buyers putting economy at the top of their list, then the BlueHDi diesel engines in the 508 will fit the bill nicely. These come in the form of a 1.5-litre 130bhp version, with up to 63mpg possible, and 0-62mph taking around 9.5 seconds. A more powerful 2.0-litre, 160bhp alternative is also available, with up to 52mpg possible, and 0-62mph taking 8.1 seconds.

A selection of petrol engines are also on offer in the 508. These can be either the 220bhp, 1.6-litre PureTech, that can do 0-62mph in 7.1 seconds, and return up to 42mpg, or the newer 130bhp, 1.2-litre PureTech, with 49mpg possible. This version does 0-62mph in 7.8 seconds.

If you want the best economy and performance from your 508, the 220bhp petrol/plug-in hybrid delivers up to 235mpg, whilst 0-62mph takes just 5 seconds.

Practicality and Running Costs

Peugeot 508 Bodystyles

A good thing about the Peugeot 508 is the multiple bodystyles available, as buyers can choose the regular 'Fastback' version, or the more practical 'SW' (estate).

When choosing the Peugeot 508 Fastback, you'll benefit from 487 litres of boot space, increasing to 1,537 litres with the rear seats folded. The more practical SW model features a larger 530-litre boot, increasing to 1,780 litres with the rear seats folded.

Thanks to clever, compact and efficient engine choices, the Peugeot 508 isn't going to require you spending loads of your time filling up at fuel stations. And as for maintenance, servicing is reasonable and can be undertaken at your local Evans Halshaw Peugeot retailer, with more information readily available via our dedicated servicing section.

Interior, Technology and Safety

Peugeot 508 Interior

Peugeot's i-Cockpit welcomes occupants to a stunning cabin. This is a mix of striking tech, including a digital instrument cluster, along with a striking touchscreen in the centre of the dashboard.

With many of the car's functions available to select via the touchscreen infotainment, it's nice that Peugeot have also included some physical piano-like buttons too. This is to make it quicker and easier to select certain features, such as the heating controls - so it's not distracting for the driver to have to go through multiple menus whilst driving.

The Peugeot 508 also comes with a five-star Euro NCAP safety rating. This is thanks to a lot of safety tech being included as standard, including six airbags, a driver attention alert system, a distance alert system, active lane-keeping technology, autonomous emergency braking and traffic sign recognition.

Is the Peugeot 508 right for me?

If you happen to be in the market for a saloon car, but fancy a bit more style, along with enhanced practicality, then the Peugeot 508 Fastback could well be the answer.

Complemented by an even more practical SW version - which features in our review of the Peugeot 508 - this sleek car appeals to a multitude of buyers. Team this with striking exterior and interior style, along with being loaded with lots of safety tech only enhances the 508's appeal further.

When considered alongside competitors such as the Ford Mondeo and Vauxhall Insignia, the 508 has the edge thanks to its cutting-edge style and execution. Put the 508 against more premium manufacturer alternatives, such as the BMW 3 Series and Audi A4, and the 508 offers better value.
