To cope with the arrival of rivals as fearsome as the new Ford Mondeo and Volkswagen Passat the firm Lion has decided to update its flagship to make it even more attractive and efficient and to introduce new technologies.
Despite not having been a long time since its debut in mid-2011 Peugeot has decided to update its Peugeot 508 to fight on better terms with new rivals that lie ahead. Outwardly what is striking is its new grille which opens the image gradually adapted to other models of the brand Lion. They also change bonnet front bumper which increases total length of 1.6 cm SW and the saloon almost 4 since it also varies his backside and fog which can now be led as in the unity of the prueba- while the taillights which themselves are different in the saloon in the family are kept. The interior features a touch screen 7-inch (standard from the Active finish) which dispenses with some physical buttons although rightly maintains shortcuts for navigation audio telephone and on-board computer. Furthermore debuts new upholstery Apps that enhance connectivity and safety equipment such as control of vehicles in the blind spot or reversing camera with good definition but low light when it begins to darken which disables use.
In the mechanical the gasoline engine 1.6 THP direct injection with Stop & Start increases power to 165 hp while in Diesel's 2.0 Blue HDI manual 6 speed star of the test appear with 150 hp and 180 CV with automatic torque converter.
However what is striking in this BlueHDI is your level of pollutant emissions approved with 105 g / km has one of the lowest in its class records. Something that bodes very low consumption although in practice they are not so reaching just over half liter A4 Avant 2.0 TDI ultra city and the BMW 318d Touring which are of the best family means in this section.
Functionally yes there upgradable details showing his seniority versus newcomers. Examples are the electrohydraulic steering which becomes very heavy to maneuver quickly or guiding your change which requires the driver to accurately mark and quiet time.
Livability is unchanged compared to the previous version with good levels globally and the ability to travel four adults in complete relief. Its trunk with 525 liters makes a good capacity only 10 liters of the best (Passat and C5). In addition networks for securing objects that allow exceed the limit of the luggage cover curtain which is wound one touch- backrests that can be folded from a control in the trunk itself hooks for hanging bags or hatch that connects through the center armrest with compartment for introducing objects such as skis greatly increase its versatility.
With the current discount rate of Peugeot 508 reduced their prices by 3000 euros. With this promotion becomes tempting offer but not be as competitive as in other models of the lion. Nevertheless over its rivals is well positioned especially as its standard equipment is extensive including the access version although we find it the best value in Active.
Complies with good marks in all aparatados for quality is almost the level of premium rivals and equipment can be very complete with options at very attractive prices. The 2.0 BlueHDI 150 hp convinced in their use but do not forget that maintenance is somewhat higher having to refill the AdBlue approximately every 20000 km while in consumption despite being low in practice get what was promised reaching many of his opponents and slightly below a 2.0 HDI 140 hp promulgated only 0.4 l / 100 km over a half and an acquisition cost much less.
