Peugeot 508 now with more equipment

The Peugeot 508 saloon and SW estate now with enhanced levels of standard equipment

The Peugeot 508 saloon and 508 SW estate have been updated with more equipment, in an effort to steal market share from the class-leading Ford Mondeo and Volkswagen Passat.

All versions apart from the basic Access model now get sat-nav as standard, while 16-inch alloy wheels and Bluetooth connectivity for your mobile phone are included across the range. Elsewhere, the Active model changes its name to Active Navigation. It has 18-inch alloy wheels, a new front grille, rear parking sensors and electric folding door mirrors. Sat-nav is included, too.

Upgrade to the 508 Allure and you’ll get xenon headlamps, LED daytime running lights and front parking sensors. Top-of-the-range GT cars are only available with the powerful 2.2-litre HDi diesel engine and now come with 19-inch alloys.

Along with the enhanced specifications, the 508 is available with a wide range of petrol and diesel engines, as well as a super-frugal diesel-electric hybrid. The pick of the range remains the 2.0-litre HDi diesel in mid-spec Active trim – it offers the best compromise between equipment and list price.

Prices for the revised 508 are slightly higher than the outgoing model’s, with Access, Active and Allure models all costing £200 more. The GT specification has increased by £400. This means you can buy a 1.6-litre VTi Access petrol for £19,055, while the top-spec 2.2-litre HDi GT diesel costs from £30,055.
