The previous 508 was a decent-looking car, but with the new generation, Peugeot has really upped its game.
It’s definitely one of the sexiest family cars on sale today, along with the Mazda6, and while it has the shape of a saloon, it’s actually a five-door fastback.
The cabin is really well put together, according to CarBuyer. Everything inside has a premium feeling, and Peugeot has really paid attention to details.
Another important aspect is that there is no such thing as a poorly-equipped 508. Also, for the first time in this segment, there’s an optional night vision system available as well. Nevertheless, if you want the large infotainment system, 20-inch wheels and sporty exterior styling, then you’ll have to choose one of the top two trim levels.
Boot space stacks up really well against its rivals, and there’s a decent amount of legroom on the rear bench. Due to that rakish profile though, headroom isn’t really good at the back.
Old mid-size Peugeots were known for their soft ride, but the new 508’s suspension is a bit on the firm side, the trade-off being that it corners better than its predecessor.
The reviewer said the latest Peugeot 508 has the ‘wow’ factor, but is it impressive enough to make you consider it over a Volkswagen Passat, Ford Mondeo or Skoda Superb?
