Peugeot 508 RXH review

New Peugeot 508.

This luxury estate car is used by the French Embassy. But what does the Peugeot 508 RXH have to offer you?

Exterior

The Peugeot 508 RXH has a sporty and powerful design that demands attention. The new front end and bumper design is unique to this vehicle, and they’re the perfect combination of elegance and toughness.

The distinctive front daytime running lights are enhanced by the placement of the optional full LED headlamps. These accentuate the Peugeot 508 RXH’s smooth lines and powerful stance, giving this car real stand out quality.

The extended wheel arches look great, and they become practical when combined with the new raised ground clearance level, allowing the Peugeot 508 RXH to deliver outstanding performances on every road surface imaginable.

Interior

As with most modern cars, the innovative on board tech in the Peugeot 508 RXH is something to be admired. To make sure that you keep your eyes on the road, you can opt for the head-up display to control all of your touch screen’s functions (including navigation, audio and entertainment systems).

The Peugeot 508 RXH has an integrated satellite navigation system, so you’ll never get lost on those long road trips. This car also includes dual-zone air conditioning, so everyone in your car can be comfortable and there won’t be any arguments about the heating!

But it’s not just the gadgets that make this car stand out; the exterior’s stylish and powerful design is brought into the cabin too. Each stitch and finish in the Peugeot 508 RXH is meticulous and oozes elegance and class. The spacious interior is enhanced by the panoramic glass roof that allows light to pour through the roof and create a sense of freedom from within the confines of your vehicle.

Boot space is not an issue with the Peugeot 508 RXH; it has a capacity of 423 litres, and if that’s not enough for all your bits and bobs, you can fold down the rear seats at a touch of a button and make it even bigger.

On the road

The Peugeot 508 RXH has been described as an ‘all roader’. The elevated driving position and exception road-handling allows drivers to transition smoothly from the slick city streets to rugged off-road terrain.

You don’t need a key for the Peugeot 508 RXH if you opt for the Open & Go system. You just need an electronic fob and you don’t even have to get it out of your bag. Your car will realise it’s there and then all you have to do is press the start/stop button and you’ll be on your way.

Peugeot offers this model with either a diesel or diesel/hybrid engine. The 2.0L BlueHDi 108hp Diesel particulate filter engine is great for use both in the city and driving over long distances. The HYbrid4tech combines a 163 hp Diesel engine (2.0L HDi) with a 37hp electric engine, to create exceptional performance which is surprisingly quiet and tranquil.

All engines offer 4 driving modes: Auto, Sport, 4 Wheel Drive and ZEV. This ensures that your car is prepared for the road ahead, whatever surface or environment it may be.

The Peugeot 508 RXH is among the lowest in its segment for fuel consumption and CO2 emissions; making a great choice for your new estate car.

This car also includes a number of driver assistance systems; blind-spot monitoring, reverse parking cameras, an electronic stability programme and Peugeot Connect SOS & Assistance are all included to keep you and your passengers safe while driving.

The Peugeot 508 RXH is filled to the brim with technology and safety technology. So while it may take time for you to get your head around some of the gadgets, it’s definitely worth your while.

With a starting price of £18,995, it’s a great drive with lots of optional extras to make it your own.
