2018 Peugeot 508 - verdict

One thing’s for sure: the 508 is a much better car than the one it replaces. It’s good to drive, impressively refined and very comfortable.

It’s a likeable car, and one that's certainly good enough to tempt people away from rivals such as the Mondeo and Vauxhall Insignia Grand Sport, especially if it’s broadly competitive on PCP costs and if the figures stack up for it as a company car.

Prices for the base models look pretty good, too, although higher up its trim range, the 508 starts to run into some premium-badged rivals - they might prove a tough nut to crack.
