The full Peugeot 508 review

Buyer's notes

Target Price team says:

The majority of Peugeot 508s (Peugeot reckons around 65%) will be run as company cars and its smart image and range of efficient engines give it plenty of appeal for business users.

The e-HDi model – which has a range of features to cut fuel consumption and CO2 emissions – will be most tempting, although there’s no fully manual gearbox, which won’t be to all tastes. Elsewhere, there’s a wide range of engines, with the 201bhp GT version topping the range. It’s pricey, but comes with lots of power and kit.

Among the options available are four-zone climate control and a system that tells you if the car will fit in an adjacent parking space.
