Review

The Peugeot 508 makes plenty of sense as a company car and scores well for safety, but plenty of rivals are more practical and better to drive.

Top-spec GT trim gets a punchy Focal stereo, adaptive suspension, adaptive cruise control, a gesture controlled electric tailgate, leather seats with electric adjustment and memory for the driver, plus massage function and lane-keeping assistance. It's rather pricey, though, and hard to recommend.

The entry-level engine has low CO2 emissions but, but, with a mere 128bhp, it feels rather sluggish on the road. Available with a six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic gearbox.
