The Peugeot 508 needs a bit of extra attention lavished upon it. So it’s update time and that will at least give the 508 a bit of free air time ergo publicity. And here it is, the Peugeot 508 is the beneficiary of numerous albeit minor updates. Updates are planned into the product lifecycle, usually halfway through the vehicle’s lifespan of around 5-6 years. Trim options have changed. The entry-level Allure is removed from the options list. Thus the Peugeot 508 trim levels are revised starting with: Active Premium, Allure Premium, GT, GT Premium and Sport Engineered. It should be noted that all 508s are, by definition, engineered.
Entry-level models come with 16-inch alloys, automatic wipers, a multi-functional steering wheel, a configurable 12.3-inch head-up digital instrument panel and an eight-inch capacitive colour touchscreen. Standard driver safety systems include PEUGEOT Connect SOS and Assistance, as well as PEUGEOT’s Safety Pack which features.
Other standard safety systems include, Advanced Automatic Emergency Braking System, Distance Alert, Speed Limit Information/Intelligent Speed Adaptation, as well as Active Lane Keeping Assistance.
If 16-inch or 17-inch alloy wheels are too small for your street pride then go for the GT trim which offers 18-inch alloys as standard. You’ll also get some minor exterior trim upgrades such as the chequered radiator grille. Inside you’ll get leatherette trim and ambient lighting.
But if you want the all-singing and fully loaded Sport Engineered variant, prepare to fork out ove £53K. Available in Fastback or SW, the 508 can be optioned with petrol and diesel powertrains. All variants use an 8-speed automatic as standard throughout the range.
Prices for the updated PEUGEOT 508 start from £28,215, with the 508 SW from £29,815.
