1: AWARD WINNING QUALITY

Peugeot’s 508 mid-size sedan and touring models have scored a key win in Germany’s largest, independent, used car reliability study - the 2015 GTÜ (Gesellschaft für Technische Überwachung mbH) used car report.

Competing in the middle-class (mid-size), the Peugeot 508 bested the Skoda Superb and Mercedes C-Class for the category win for vehicles one to three years of age.

The largest used car report in Germany collates data from 5 million general inspections, conducted by GTÜ’s (Society for Technical Supervision mbH) accredited and independent vehicle inspection agents, covering 240 vehicle makes across seven categories.

The GTÜ quality report is published in conjunction with Auto Zeitung in an annual 204-page report, that presents each vehicle in detail together with technical data and model history.


2: ELEGANT DESIGN

Guided by the quest for perfectly balanced and streamlined volumes, the style of the 508 suggests a vehicle "sculpted from a solid mass", reflecting attributes of elegance, robustness and build quality.


3: SATTELITE NAVIGATION

The Peugeot 508 is equipped with the following interactive telematics systems:

  • 8 speaker radio CD MP3
  • USB port for personal stereo connection
  • Integrated Bluetooth™ hands-free kit with audio streaming
  • Integrated satellite navigation system with 7" colour display screen

4: KEYLESS START AND ENTRY

With the 508, you have the opportunity of using electronic recognition (keyless access and start-up) rather than the traditional key.

So, with the identifier still in your pocket (or handbag) you can access your vehicle, start it and stop it simply by using the Start/Stop button.

The vehicle can be locked again on exiting simply by touching the door handle.


5: INDIVIDUAL COMFORT

The Peugeot 508’s high quality interior is designed to be the perfect balance between style and function. With luxurious features such as heated front seats and quad-zone air conditioning, you’ll be carried to your destination in comfort.


6: DRIVING EXPERIENCE

Every component of the Peugeot 508 has been designed with quality time on the road in mind. It’s filled with technology to make driving more enjoyable such as Peugeot Connect Navigation. Outside its refined style and road presence are sure to make an impression.


EXTERIOR DESIGN

The 508's design embodies Peugeot’s evolving style direction with its smooth, flowing lines, unique ‘floating grille’ and three bold red slashes in the signature rear lights.


STYLE

At the front, the 508 illustrates Peugeot's evolving aesthetic codes with a unique 'floating' grille rendered in a fluid style, and finely-worked headlights with their feline look.

On the versions fitted with bi-xenon directional headlamps, LED lighting tubes give the 508 an original visual signature.

Similarly, at the rear, three prominent red claws mask three rows of LEDs. The sides of the car are purposefully streamlined, enhanced by the contours of the windows.


LIGHTING SIGNATURE

The 508 features stunning Xenon headlamps. These high-intensity discharge (HID) lamps produce a beam of light with an electric arc rather than a glowing filament, which simply means they have a higher efficiency than standard headlamps. Anyone driving behind a 508 will spot the Peugeot lion’s claws in the form of three bold red slashes in the signature rear lights. On the versions fitted with bi-Xenon headlights, LED lighting tubes give the 508 an original visual signature.


ALLOY WHEELS

Depending on the model, the Peugeot 508 can be fitted with stylish 17’’, 18’’ or 19’’ alloy wheels.


AERODYNAMICS

Environmental efficiency has been taken into account from the design phase of the 508, through optimisation of the aerodynamics and weight. As a result, the grand saloon delivers an SCx of 0.58.

FLOATING GRILLE

Some people would call it just a radiator grille; to us it’s more like a sculpture. With a classic look given a hi-tech twist, it seems to float free from the bodywork. Inside the grille, hi-tech mesh and finely cut sections give a real feeling of quality. But this isn’t just for show. The bigger air intake helps reduce fuel consumption, adding substance to the unique style.


INTERIOR COMFORT

The streamlined style of the dashboard, the materials used, the meticulous finish, carefully-designed durability and the technologies available contribute to the top-of-the-range feel of the passenger compartment.


HIGH QUALITY INTERIOR

The sophisticated elegance of the 508 is continued into the interior too. With chrome and leather detailing and a clean, sleek dash the 508 has a modern, high quality feel.


LEATHER TRIMS

A premium quality black leather trim is fitted as standard; on the GT an even higher quality nappa leather is fitted. The front seats are also heated and electrically adjustable.


BOOT

The boot is practical and roomy, with a generous capacity of 497 litres of liquid. With the seatbacks folded, this rises to 1,533 litres.


MULTI-FUNCTIONAL STEERINNG WHEEL

The power’s at your fingertips in the 508 with steering wheel controls for the cruise control + speed limiter, as well as the audio system and settings menu.

INSTRUMENT PANEL

The 508 has an instrument panel of 5 dials with backlighting, red needles and a mono or coloured display matrix (depending on the version). The matrix provides information concerning the journey, radio, data relating to navigation and the cruise control / speed limiter.


COMFORT IN EVERY SEAT

The front seats have been developed around 5 requirements: style, comfort, support, durability and clearance from the rear passengers. The back seat is comfortable and welcoming and enjoys a generous allocation of space.

STORAGE SPACE

The passenger compartment of the Peugeot 508 boasts a number of storage spaces: 2 cup holders in the front, and 2 at the back, bottle holders in each door panel, arm rest storage and closed storage on the driver's side.

QUAD-ZONE AIR CONDITIONING

For optimal individual comfort, there are either two or four air conditioning zones (depending on the version), allowing passengers to set the air conditioning temperature and speed to suit their individual requirements.


TECHNOLOGY

With its next-generation technological equipment, the 508 informs and assists the driver, for quality time on all journeys.


KEYLESS START AND ENTRY

With the 508, you have the opportunity of using electronic recognition (keyless access and start-up) rather than the traditional key.

So, with the identifier still in your pocket (or handbag) you can access your vehicle, start it and stop it simply by using the Start/Stop button.

The vehicle can be locked again on exiting simply by touching the door handle.


AVAILABLE PARKING SPACE

This convenient function utilises the front parking sensorsi to measure the available space and gives information on:

  • This convenient function utilises the front parking sensorsi to measure the available space and gives information on:
  • the degree of difficulty of the manoeuvre to be performed.

BLUETOOTH® + USB

The Peugeot Connect USB box lets you listen to tracks from an MP3 player or iPod through the 508's audio system, so you could have your entire music collection in the car with you.

Track listings appear on the screen and, with Bluetoot®, you can also stream music wirelessly and use it to make and receive safe, hands-free phone calls.


SATTELITE NAVIGATION

The 508 comes with the Peugeot Connect Navigation system. This is fully interactive and easy to use and takes the stress out of any journey. It includes a high-res 7" screen which gives you amazing clarity.

HEAD-UP COLOUR DISPLAY

The head-up display feature projects essential driving information in colour onto a retractable panel located within the driver's field of vision: speed, speed limiter warnings, navigation etc. The driver therefore has access to the information without taking their eyes of the road.


ON-BOARD SOUND

The 8 speakers in conjunction with Arkamys© audio processing system installed in the 508 delivers a more natural acoustic ambience. Sound quality no longer suffers from the constraints of speakers being positioned in doors (often resulting in a concentration of sound low down and to the sides).

Instruments and voices are more harmoniously positioned in space, head-on to the passengers at windscreen height. JBL premium sound is also available as standard on GT and optional on Allure.

ELECTRIC PARKING BREAK

The electric parking brake automatically engages when the engine is switched off, and disengages when the accelerator is pressed. It can always be operated manually with the control handle.

The Hill Assist function combined with the electric parking brake enables temporary vehicle hold (2 seconds) when on a slope (>3%) and in the opposite direction to the gear selected.


SAFETY

The Peugeot 508 provides a high level of active and passive safety, offering optimum protection without compromising driving enjoyment.


ELECTRONIC STABILITY PROGRAM (ESP)

The 508 is fitted with the latest-generation ESP, which includes DSC (dynamic stability control), EBA (emergency brake assist) and EBD (electronic brake force distribution). It also includes Hill Assist as well as intelligent traction control improving the vehicle's ability to move off and be driven on slippery road surfaces by authorising more or less wheel slip on each of the front wheels.


CRUISE CONTROL + SPEED LIMITER

Cruise control enables you to maintain a constant speed while the limiter allows you to program a speed not to be exceeded. These functions can be set from the multi-functional steering wheel. Five speeds are programmable via the vehicle's settings menu.


ADAPTIVE HEADLIGHTS

The main beam assistance system utilises a dedicated camera at night and continually analyses the road conditions (on-coming vehicles, vehicles behind, lit urban areas, etc.) and will automatically switch the headlights from high beam to main beam and back again for the on-coming driver's visual comfort and your enhanced safety. This option is only available in conjunction with bi-Xenon headlights.


AIRBAGS

In the event of a collision, passenger protection is reinforced with six airbags: two front airbags, two side airbags in the front and two curtain airbags in the front and rear.


PERFORMANCE

The lightweight design, aerodynamics and, of course, Peugeot's technological expertise and innovation in the field of engines are factors that immediately place the 508 range among the segment's leaders. The 508 underwent an extensive testing program, completing 2 million kms of road testing in real-life conditions prior to launch, ensuring its quality, reliability and durability is first-class.

  • The McPherson-type front axle offers a new, high level synthesis of road holding and ride comfort.
  • The 508 GT features a drop link dual wishbone front axle enabling a high level of body rigidity and driving accuracy.

At the rear, the entire range is equipped with a multi-arm rear suspension, designed to ensure excellent efficiency and maximum comfort.


FUEL EFFICIENCY

The 508 returns excellent fuel economy figures based on the car's size and level of performance. Both diesel engines have combined fuel economy figures of 5.7l/100km, while the petrol has a combined figure of 7.1l/100km.

CO2 EMISSIONS

The 508 benefits from engines offering power outputs ranging from 115 to 150 kW, with CO2 emissions from 149 g/km to 164 g/km. Each of these is positioned particularly well within its category in terms of consumption and CO2 emissions, without having to compromise on performance.

PARTICLE FILTER

Every diesel engine generates particles. At Peugeot, we should know. Because we pioneered the use of particulate filters (FAP) in our diesels. FAP reduces particle emissions to barely measurable levels before they can escape into the environment. It works by trapping and burning these particles, which combine to form soot. What's more, the FAP particle filter is self cleaning and is virtually maintenance free, all without affecting the performance of your 508 HDi.
