2021 Peugeot 508
  • Prices start from £28,215
  • LED headlights standard across most of range
  • Five trim levels available

The Peugeot 508 and 508 SW have received an update for 2021. The new models feature extra equipment and refreshed styling to keep up with rivals such as the Skoda Superb. Prices start at £28,215 for the hatchback and £29,815 for the SW estate, with the cars available to order now.

Changes to the outside of the 508 are minor, with Peugeot’s updated logo still curiously absent from the front of the car. The 508 now has contrasting black wing mirrors and all models from Allure Premium and above get full LED headlights with Peugeot’s distinct ‘claw’ insignia.

All models will be available with a choice of engines, including a 1.2-litre petrol engine or a 1.5-litre diesel, both with 128bhp. A plug-in hybrid (PHEV) powertrain is available for all but the entry-level version, with up to 355bhp in the top-of-the-range Peugeot Sport Engineered model.

Just as before, the 508 range kicks off with the Active Premium model, which comes as standard with Peugeot’s 12.3-inch i-Cockpit digital instrument cluster, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functionality and a 180-degree reversing camera.

Safety features such as autonomous emergency braking, speed limit recognition and lane keeping assist are all standard across the entire model range. Higher trim levels also come with the option of adaptive cruise control and blind spot monitoring.

The Allure trim has been ditched as part of the update, so the range now jumps immediately to Allure Premium, which comes with upgraded 17-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels, part-leatherette seats, a larger 10-inch touch screen with built-in navigation, as well as more safety features.

Continuing up the range, sporty GT and GT-Premium editions boast more aggressive styling, as well as a dark-chrome grille, which is new for the updated models. Additionally, these include 3D-effect LED rear lights, while GT Premium cars also feature Alcantara sport seats.

Topping off the lineup is the performance-oriented Peugeot Sport Engineered model. Only available as a plug-in hybrid, this version has large, 20-inch alloy wheels and is specced with heated and massaging leather/Alcantara front seats, a 360-degree camera system, a FOCAL premium sound system and contrasting ‘Kryptonite’ styling details throughout the car.
