What used Peugeot 508 hatchback will I get for my budget?
The 508 is still a relatively new car so you won’t find many forecourt bargains, combined with which it’s not a car destined to be a big seller in the UK, so don’t expect a used marketplace saturated with them. You’ll need around £23,000 to put one on your driveway at present, this for a nearly new car with a full history bought from a franchised dealer.
How much does it cost to run a Peugeot 508 hatchback?
On paper, the most economical 508 is the 1.5 HDi 130 diesel with an automatic gearbox. According to the older NEDC official figures, its combined figure is 76.3mpg, with corresponding CO2 emissions of 98g/km. The manual car achieves a claimed 74.3mpg and CO2 emissions of 101g/km. The 2.0 HDi 160 has been tested under the new stricter WLTP procedure and produces 51.1mpg with corresponding CO2 emissions of 118g/km. The 1.6 180 petrol-engined car achieves 41.8mpg under the new test, and CO2 emissions of 123g/km.
All 508s of this generation will have been registered after the tax changes of April 2017 came into force, meaning a flat rate annual VED tax currently £140 a year. Insurance groups are average for this class of car. Peugeot has a number of different servicing plans that offer flexibility in payments and length of contract, and servicing costs on the whole are lower than many of its rivals.
