There’s a decent range of adjustment for the seat and steering wheel, and the seats themselves are supportive. However, the driving position isn’t perfect because the seat is a bit too close to the floor, even in its highest setting, forcing you to sit with your legs stretched out in front of you. Bulky pillars limit visibility, but the dash is pretty logically laid out.
Peugeot 508 Saloon space & practicality
There’s plenty of space for four tall adults and their luggage in the 508. Headroom is generous and although rear legroom isn’t on a par with a Ford Mondeo or VW Passat, no-one is likely to complain. The almost-flat floor means even a central rear passenger will be comfortable. Only the 508’s saloon body lets it down, because it means the boot has a comparatively small opening.
Peugeot 508 Saloon equipment
Five trim levels make up the 508 range: Access, SR, Active, Allure and GT. Entry-level Access models have the basics, including air-con, four electric windows and a USB input. You need to step up to SR to gain alloy wheels, cruise control and Bluetooth, but satellite-navigation is also included. Active and Allure don’t have sat-nav, but add a range of luxury and convenience extras, while GT models come with all the whistles and bells.
