A large and spacious interior means the new 508 sedan has plenty of room for passengers. Designed to make the cabin practical as well as spacious and stunning, the 508 is versatile and comfortable for everyone, even if you’re in the back seat.
For optimal individual comfort, there are either two (Active) or four air conditioning zones (Allure and GT), allowing passengers to set the air conditioning temperature and speed to suit their individual requirements.

The 8 speakers in conjunction with Arkamys© audio processing system installed in the 508 delivers a more natural acoustic ambience.

Instruments and voices are more harmoniously positioned in space, head-on to the passengers at windscreen height. JBL premium sound is also available as an option on Allure and GT versions.
The electric parking brakei 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.

It means you use less fuel and produce up to 15% less CO2 while driving in the city.

To keep you as safe as possible, the new 508 sedan has six air bags as standard – two in the front, two beside the driver and front passenger, and two along the sides of the car.
