Pricing announced for refreshed Peugeot 508 with new design & 105g/km diesel

Available in the same saloon, estate and all-road RXH bodystyles, the revised 508 brings latest design features including a bold new front grille – which will be progressively rolled out on future models – along with redesigned bonnet and a revised rear end for the saloon, which gains a new bumper and is now 38mm longer, 16mm of which is in the front overhang (the same for SW) and 22mm in the rear overhang.

The RXH also gains an extra 5mm in front overhang to due the new front end, bringing its length to 4.828m. Boot volumes remain unchanged.

There’s also a new lighting signature for the top-of-the-range versions (RXH, GT & Allure).

Inside, the dashboard now includes as standard a seven-inch touch-screen grouping together most of the vehicle’s functions using an intuitive design while shortcut buttons for the main menus – navigation, air conditioning, radio, connectivity, etc – are accessible at all times in the dashboard central panel. As a result, the central area has been redesigned to include fewer buttons and a new closed storage box.

On RXH and GT models, there’s also colour Head-Up Display, offering driving and navigation information and viewed on a retractable smoked screen.

New features include Blind Spot Sensors and a reversing camera and there’s also now a range of connected services, dubbed Peugeot Connect Apps and helping with finding free parking spaces nearby, fuel prices at filling stations in the vicinity, traffic and weather information, and tourist information from the Michelin Guide or TripAdvisor.

Amongst the upgrades, the 2.0-litre BlueHDI 150 diesel with a six-speed manual gearbox will emit 105g/km CO2 in the saloon and SW estate, down from 109g/km and 110g/km respectively, and is said to be the best in the segment for this level of engine power.

There’s also the 2.0-litre BlueHDi 180 Automatic EAT6, which will be available for the RXH to meet the growing demand in the segment for all-road vehicle, and offering CO2 emissions of 119g/km and combined fuel consumption of 61.4mpg – this along with the HYbrid4 technology will be the only engine options for the diesel-only RXH. 

There’s also a 1.6 litre THP 165 Stop & Start with a six-speed manual gearbox or the new EAT6 six-speed automatic gearbox. Replacing the Euro 5 1.6-litre THP 156, this new 165bhp engine gives reduced CO2 emissions from 131g/km with a 6-speed manual (compared to 144g/km plus for the previous generation).

Peugeot’s HYbrid4 technology is carried over to the saloon and the RXH and combines a 163bhp 2.0-litre HDi Diesel engine with a 37bhp electric motor driving the rear wheels. There’s four selectable driving modes (ZEV, 4WD, Sport and Auto) and CO2 emissions of 85g/km and with combined fuel consumption of 85.6mpg.

Prices start from £22,054 for the Saloon and £23,245 for the SW in Active trim, rising to £24,895 and £26,295 respectively in Allure trim. The 508 GT Saloon is priced from £30,645 and the SW model from £32,045 whilst the 508 RXH is priced from £30,295 for the2.0-litre BlueHDi 180 six-speed automatic gearbox and £34,645 with HYbrid4.
