Good to look at and fun to drive, the 508 is also comfortable to travel in. This large family car comes with a fine range of standard features and a five-star safety rating from Euro NCAP.
The 508 is a well-built saloon car which impresses from every angle. Standard features include electrically folding and heated door mirrors and stylish, lightweight and durable 17-inch alloy wheels. Illumination includes automatic headlights and LED daytime running lights, adding immeasurably to a striking front end.
A spacious five-seat cabin is upholstered in Cocher Tramontane black cloth trim. The driver benefits from electrically adjustable lumbar seating and will relish the chance to get to grips with the full-grain leather steering wheel. Standard features include cruise control with speed limiter, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, electric windows and automatic dual-zone climate control. The 508 features a minimum-capacity 512-litre boot.
A trio of diesel engines help to provide a refined driving experience and are available for entry-level Active grades. The most efficient is a 1.6-litre option. Paired with six-speed manual transmission, this returns as much as 74.3mpg and CO2 emissions as low as 99g/km.
A seven-inch colour touchscreen provides access to a range of audio, communication and satellite navigation functions. DAB radio and a CD player provide in-car entertainment. Bluetooth and USB connectivity is included too. Safety features such as Peugeot Connect SOS, Anti-lock Braking System, Electronic Stability Programme, Traction Control, seatbelt reminders and six airbags are standard inclusions.
