Peugeot decided to do it right and on a grand scale, the restyling 508 completely turns it around and now many are thinking about it.
Now you can order it. Peugeot worked hard on the 508 and a redesign made it possible to choose from up to 18 versions of this car. Meanwhile, the segment, from a sedan to a station wagon, varies depending on the tastes of those who decide to purchase it. In addition, its sports version, Peugeot Sport Engineered, is also planned. Instead, there are three levels and five engines.
In short, it is appropriate to say that there is something for all tastes. The basic version is the petrol version with 130 hp and the starting price is 42,170 euros. As for the engines, you can choose between: 1.2-liter 3-cylinder PureTech EAT8 petrol with 130 hp. Then there’s the BlueHDi’s 1.5-liter four-cylinder, also in this case developing 130hp. In either case, the gearbox is an 8-speed EAT8 automatic.
Then there are the plug-in hybrid versions, three different with different powers: 180, 225 and 360 hp, but the last one is for those who opt for the 508 PSE. As mentioned, there are also different trim levels: Allure, GT and PSE. In the first case offered, there are dual-zone automatic climate, full matrix LED headlights as well as a 180-degree camera, a digital instrument cluster visible on a 12.3-inch display, and a navigator.
Peugeot 508: PSE is a whole other car
The GT also offers 18-inch alloy wheels, while the camera view increases to 360 degrees. Automotive, Driving Assistant Plus Interiors Pack and Alcantara. The PSE is the top of the range Peugeot 508. And the price inevitably goes up, 71,320 euros for the fully optional version.
Almost another car because the equipment changes, but also the aesthetics and then the performance. The suspension is designed for this setup, and the specific management of the plug-in hybrid powertrain. The modified tire, in addition to the reduced ground clearance, increases the dimensions: the front is 24 mm wider, the rear is 12 mm wider.
The brakes are also deserved: front discs with a diameter of 380 mm and the calipers in this case are fixed thanks to the pistons. 20-inch wheels shod with Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires.
We wrote that this setup is 360 horsepower, all thanks to the powertrain and a 200-horsepower PureTech petrol engine to which is added the 110-horsepower electric motor that sits up front, while the 113-horsepower one is in the rear. Also in this case by choosing this car you will have an eight-speed automatic transmission, e-EAT8.
