For The 508 offers agile handling and some fine engines. It’s classy inside and the e-HDi version is incredibly efficient.
Against The ride is firm, there’s quite a bit of wind noise and some rivals provide more space.

There are 8 Peugeot 508 versions available
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.
