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.

Cleaner Diesel

The propellant 2.0 BlueHDI has a cleaning system for AdBlue exhaust gases responsible for reducing nitrogen oxides which is filled in reviews every 20000 km-. The 150 hp stands for its softness low vibration and excellent elasticity good stretched to the red zone at 4500 rpm. It is quite refined but in urban cycle appears even more so for its excellent Stop & Start which switches off the engine when we realize it well before we got off and restarts quickly and with complete smoothness to the minimum touch the pedal clutch. A system that remains one step ahead of his rivals.

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.

First of all a lot of comfort

In the dynamic plane we find a very comfortable car but also defended with dignity in area curves. Yes they feel slightly more inertia than some of its rivals but turns fairly flat and allows high speed cornering. Always with a very safe attitude and a rear end that remains undaunted in the plotted. It is very well damped absorbing quality and comfort but sporty driving off the tightest corners management tends to "search" slightly sideways somewhat mitigated in the GT with front suspension double wishbone pivot decoupled instead of the classic McPherson of other models.

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.

Very well done

The interior welcomes us with an elegant design high quality materials traslucen and careful ergonomics. His only blemish the few small places to deposit items. In the center console where once the controls of the browser screen were located a practical space with a curtain cover for phone -of middle or small size or keys premieres but not both. In turn the ashtray is small as is the space under the center armrest; hidden connections 12V Aux and USB.

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.

Top of the range

The Peugeot 508 SW 2.0 engine with 150 hp BlueHDI only offered with the Allure finish which is the second highest for 32270 euros. So if you want a cheaper version we will opt for the 2.0 HDI 140 hp Active also the only one associated with this mechanic remaining 4100 euros and besides the lower power and an average consumption 4/10 superior lacks the hands-free access and starting the electric parking brake browser Head Up display tinted rear windows and sunroof inter alia key. In Allure plus smaller 1.6 EHDI 115 hp (by 29620 ie 2650 less) also found the BlueHDI 2.0 180 hp which adds 2450 euros plus additional 30 hp and automatic transmission.

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.
