There is more profit in cars than small so Peugeot aims to scoop of this lucrative market its rival for the Ford Mondeo and Insignia. As models this all sell predominantly as company it is unsurprising that Peugeot 90% of 508s in the UK to be diesels.

There are three of them to between: a 1.6, two-litre or The likely best-seller amongst is the 1.6 e-HDi, with micro-hybrid that help boost its economy to a combined average of mpg, and tug its CO2 emissions output to a creditable 109g/km. This is by measures such as automatic that cuts the engine the car is stationary waiting at the lights or in

Relatively low running costs are a aspect of the 508 1.6 e-HDi’s appeal. Not the fuel cost benefit of the good mpg figure for a car this but also the savings in road The first year’s tax disc is and the charge for the second year is £20.

Rivalling the dynamically excellent Mondeo, the benchmark model for cars this size, is a task. The 508 makes a fair of it, though. It drives really not quite well enough to the Mondeo, but it comes much than previous big Peugeots invited us to expect.

The 508 handles agile civility and ride is generally pretty good, up undulations and smoothing all but the worst of Britain’s pothole epidemic. is enough feel in the steering to you a clear understanding of what is where the tyres bite the and the overall impression is of a dynamically car.

It’s not a bad looker, either, a body design that it more street presence the old 407 ever had. At the front is a bonnet line with family-look floating grille, and the view with a high gives the car quite a classy, a look.
