Introduction

What Car? says...

With the revolutionary zeal historically associated with the French, over recent years the Peugeot 508 has transformed from a staid four-door saloon into a sleek and low-slung five-door coupé.

Peugeot calls the 508 a fastback, the very term evoking associations with the dashing Jaguar E-Type and Ford Mustang of the 1960s. There's no doubt at all that it's a striking machine to look at, and the fact that it has a hatchback rather than the narrow boot opening of a saloon gives it practical appeal, too. 

Its confident looks give it the swagger to exchange blows with the Volkswagen Arteon, a rival with similar ambitions: to appeal to those looking for something a little different in the executive car class. The fact that there’s a company car-focused plug-in hybrid version helps, too.

And the aforementioned class is nothing if not closely fought, with the Ford Mondeo, Skoda Superb and Vauxhall Insignia Grand Sport sharing a battleground with premium models such as the Audi A4. BMW 3 Series and Mercedes C-Class.

To find out if the 508 is worthy of your consideration, read on and we’ll tell you about its driving manners, what it’ll cost and how plush it feels inside. And if you fancy taking the plunge the most hassle-free way, head to our New Car Buying pages.
