Turn heads

Known for being a top-of-the-range executive car, the PEUGEOT 508 has proved a popular choice over the years. The latest generation showcases PEUGEOT’s new design language, which is being rolled out across the range – adding extra pizazz to the PEUGEOT 508’s exterior.

The new front-end incorporates the distinctive grille lower into the bumper, as well as presenting the marque’s new emblem centre-stage. Not to mention the signature three-claw lighting system, which is bound to leave an impression long after you’ve driven away.

Choose a PEUGEOT 508 that perfectly matches your personality (or that of your business if it’s a fleet vehicle) with a range of exterior colours. Why not opt for one of the three new shades? There’s Okenite White, Eclipse Blue and the stunning Titane Grey.

Stay connected

The new PEUGEOT 508 range represents the pinnacle of driving pleasure and comfort, complemented by an extensive suite of connectivity and assistance systems. The distinctive PEUGEOT i-Cockpit offers ergonomics, quality, practicality and technology with a new infotainment system, the PEUGEOT i-Connect Advanced.

This system is equipped with a 10-inch high-definition central screen, connected navigation, wireless smartphone connectivity and more. The new PEUGEOT 508 also boasts assistance technology, such as Night Vision, which uses infrared camera technology to alert the driver of any hazards ahead.

A memorable drive

The part you’re most interested in – how does the New PEUGEOT 508 drive? According the PEUGEOT, the new model boasts improved road holding, driving comfort and nimble handling. Win-win!

The powertrain line-up includes two plug-in hybrid options: a new 180hp and a 225hp version. Also available are a 130hp PureTech petrol version and a 130hp BlueHDi diesel version. All engines are combined with the EAT8 8-speed automatic transmission.

One aspect that caught our eye at Arbury is the 508 PEUGEOT SPORT ENGINEERED variant, which features a 360hp plug-in hybrid drivetrain and all-wheel drive. After all, PEUGEOT’s history is inextricably linked with motorsport. Electrification has been a gamechanger for racing as a symbol of modernity, performance and efficiency – qualities the new 508 PEUGEOT SPORT ENGINEERED builds on.

It’s safe to say we can’t wait to get in the driving seat of this one!

Take your seat

The PEUGEOT 508 brings well-being and comfort to the fore – whether you’re a driver or passenger. Climate control ensures a comfortable temperature, while the AQS (Air Quality System) constantly monitors the quality of the air entering the passenger compartment and can automatically activate air recycling.

The front seats are particularly comfortable and have been awarded AGR (Campaign for Healthier Backs) certification. The seats have also been designed to highlight the quality of the materials used. On the PEUGEOT SPORT ENGINEERED variants, there’s unique upholstery with a Kryptonite-coloured signature thread, which also highlights the dashboard, armrests and foam pads of the console.

Setting off on an adventure? Don’t miss the premium hi-fi system developed in partnership with audio specialist FOCAL and the enviable boot space (1,537 litres with the rear seats folded in the Fastback variants and 1,780 litres for the SW). Road trips will never be the same…
