Car Review: Peugeot 508 RXH

The Peugeot 508 RXH Electric Hybrid is a bit different your normal car. is a lot of clever technology happening out of and it takes a bit of getting used to

On the motorway it is very good, the is soft and it will cruise smoothly and peacefully. For a big car (and the 508 is big) the steering is surprisingly and it can manoeuvre quickly should the arise.

The Peugeot 508 RXH shares its 2.0-litre turbodiesel engine / electric motor set up with the Hybrid 4, and it s also found in the DS5. It has an automated-manual gearbox, the electric motor adds to smooth lunges and surges by the automatic gear changes, and it well too.

The brakes are personally I found them a bit sharp at the top of the pedal but not too much. For in need of more excitement, the gear shift and sport gives more interaction and something a more hands-on could feel a tad distanced otherwise. There is also a drive mode suitable for terrain or towing.

There is also a type display be warned, the drawer that contains the to adjust it are right under the on the right side of the steering If you do it while you are driving, make you pull the right one.

I m sat in the back writing this and is tons of space, the leather are firm and comfortable, there are a switches and lights above the windows should I need to the share prices on my way home, for the back-seat driver there is executive level sophistication.

the 508 has plenty of room too, the panoramic glass roof can be hidden when it gets too hot is it opens the car up to the outside world keeping the rain out.

The seat has a wonderful massage built in, and it s very relaxing, if there is only one of them. If front passenger has a stiff too, well, they ll have to buy their own car.

As far as the future of motoring is concerned, the 508 is not the holy grail, long solution and that particular car be some way off. While the is impressive, there are good tax for a businesses choosing a greener and this benefit will a big part in the success of the car.

Because of its size it can be fiddly to park, even the front and rear sensors.

the extra expense of buying a at the moment (up to £10,000 more) is to be difficult to justify for the average but the 508 is an extremely well built from a quality manufacturer. looking for a financially viable, friendly vehicle for their should take a look, else might just to hang on a bit longer.
