Peugeot has released further details and pricing for the newly facelifted 508 range.
Following the announcement of the refreshed 508 in June, the new range will be available to buy from this month, priced between £22,054 and £34,645.
With major upgrades to the styling, in-car technology and engine range, Peugeot say that the refresh will put the 508 at the cutting edge of the executive car segment.
Great new exterior updates
Exterior updates include a bold new front grille, plus a redesigned bonnet and front bumper with integrated LED daytime running lights on range-topping trim levels.
On the Active trim, Peugeot has added halogen headlamps, while the rear lamps across the range have also been given a redesign with updated LEDs.
The model is now 38mm longer than the previous version, increasing interior space, while the boot volume remains the same.
Next-gen equipment as standard
A seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system now features on all 508 models as standard, while the dashboard has been rejigged to de-clutter it and make it more intuitive to use.
The colour heads-up display, which projects driver information onto a retractable dash-mounted screen makes a return and other features include keyless entry and start, an automatic parking brake plus front and rear parking sensors.
Blind spot detectors and a reversing camera, which is viewed in full colour via the touchscreen, can also be specified as optional add-ons.
On top of that, Peugeot has also tweaked the suspension on the 508 range to further enhance ride dynamics, with the carmaker claiming that the upgraded range offers “a remarkably composed performance.”
Power efficiency is key to the new models
Several of the 508’s pre-existing engines have been carried over, but Peugeot has bolstered the range with the addition of a range of new, more efficient power units.
The new range includes a Euro 6-accredited 1.6-litre petrol engine with a six-speed manual gearbox, which boasts an ample 165bhp with CO2 emissions from 131g/km.
Two 2.0-litre BlueHDi diesel units are also on offer, available in 150bhp and 180bhp versions with CO2 emissions of an impressive 109g/km and 119g/km respectively. This makes them the best engines in their segment in terms of emissions, according to Peugeot.
The new 508 can also be had as a hybrid powered by Peugeot’s Hybrid 4 technology, which allows it to return emissions of just 85g/km and a combined fuel consumption of 85.6mpg.
