Peugeot announces prices for 508

Peugeot names its price for the all new 508 saloon and SW estate, there will be five different versions, and six engines all available from April.

French firm Peugeot has confirmed the full UK specs and prices for its Volkswagen Passat rivalling 508 saloon and SW estate range ahead of its arrival in showrooms this April.

The 508 range comprises a five-model line-up – ranging from Access, through SR, Active, Allure up to top-spec GT specifications. Prices for the Access saloon start at £18,150, while the SW estate kicks off at £19,175. The top-spec GT models cost £28,750 and £29,975 respectively. The entry prices undercut the Passat saloon by £725 and estate by £1,000.

Six engines will be available on the 508 at launch – two petrols and four diesels. The 120bhp entry-level 1.6-litre petrol comes with Peugeot’s robotized manual gearbox, while the 156bhp version comes with a six-speed manual.

The diesel engines kick off with the 112bhp 1.6-litre, available with either a five-speed manual or robotized manual gearbox. The latter car also features stop start 'eHDi' technology, helping cut emissions to 109 g/km of CO2 in the saloon and 110 g/km in the SW version - impressive figures for a car of this size.

There are also three larger 2.0-litre diesels – the 140bhp version is only available with a manual gearbox, while the 163bhp and 200bhp versions are connected to six-speed automatics.

Completing the myriad choices are two different front suspension setups. Lesser cars get conventional McPherson struts, while the 508 GT model features a double wishbone front suspension aimed at improving road holding and steering accuracy.

Carbuyer's review of the new car will be published on the 19th of January.
