Peugeot 508 makes the grade for Maxxis Tyres field sales team

A fleet of Peugeot 508s deployed by Maxxis Tyres has proven their worth with the firm’s UK field sales team.

Maxxis has chosen high-spec Allure and GT Line Fastback models

The firm, a global tyre manufacturer of a range of bicycle, motorcycle, car and light truck tyres, has recently taken delivery of 12 Peugeot 508s, including a mix of Allure and GT Line Fastback models.

Reporting back, UK managing director Derek McMartin said: “We are very happy with our new fleet of all-new Peugeot 508s; these cars meet our needs in terms of fuel efficiency, good value for money and comfortable all-round vehicles. Our team members use the cars for work and for home and find that they excel no matter what is asked of them in the normal course of business and personal use.”

The feedback underscores the new 508’s continued success with fleets, aided by its residual values and low CO2 emissions.

“The class-leading design and comprehensive equipment for the all-new Peugeot 508 brings eye-catching design for fleet drivers as well as an extensive list of safety equipment that any fleet manager would want to help them meet their duty of care requirements,” said Martin Gurney, fleet director for Peugeot, Citroën and DS Automobiles. “A global tyre brand could obviously have chosen any car for its field sales team and we are proud that Maxxis has chosen the all-new Peugeot 508.”
