The HDi 112 diesel engine is available in two versions, with either a five-speed manual gearbox or Peugeot's innovative e-HDi Stop & Start System with a six-speed electronically controlled manual gearbox (EGC). The fitment of the e-HDi Stop & Start System technology on the 508 enables customers to reduce fuel consumption (up to 15% in urban driving) and with the fitment of the EGC gearbox it produces just 109g/km of CO2 in the Saloon and 110 g/km in the SW version.

The Peugeot 508 is also available with two different front suspension configurations. An all-new pseudo McPherson type front suspension will be the main option on the majority of the 508 range. As well as improved driveability this new set-up reduces weight, as it is 12kg lighter than the design featured on the Peugeot 407. The Peugeot 508 'GT' model features a drop link double wishbone front suspension advancing the suspension design similar to the 407. The use of a linked double wishbone helps separate suspension and steering forces to improve road holding and steering accuracy.

Peugeot announced the 508 RXH

The new Peugeot 508 RXH: diesel-electric and distinctive high end appeal combine to offer an original view of the world of all road vehicles and enhanced driving pleasure.

Unveiled today, the 508 RXH demonstrates a modern and enhanced vision for Peugeot. The style of the 508 RXH and its innovative HYbrid4 drive unit provide features that allow it to combine freedom and driving pleasure in a form never seen before in the segment:

After the launch of the 508 Saloon and SW, acclaimed for their styling elegance, high-level build quality and attention to detail, the 508 RXH again raises the profile of the entire Peugeot brand, reinforcing its technological and environmental leadership.

Equipped with a 2.0-litre HDi HYbrid4 drive train, a Peugeot world first in the 3008 HYbrid4, the diesel-electric drive unit in the 508 RXH extends driving pleasure and freedom to travel anywhere on all roads. With a maximum power of 200 bhp, four-wheel drive and maximum torque of 450 Nm, the 508 RXH has been designed to adapt to all uses, in a variety of conditions. Furthermore, it opens up new perspectives in the segment, offering a 100% electric mode (Zero Emissions), ideal for driving in town and for reducing consumption in the Combined Cycle to 67.2 mpg, with emissions of 109 g/km of CO2.

Facelifted Peugeot 508 revealed

Features changes in exterior and interior styling, the latest state-of-the-art technological content – plus new cleaner engines. On the top-of-the-range versions (RXH, GT & Allure), the front of the vehicle is characterised by new lighting. Headlamps, daytime running lamps, direction indicators and fog lamps are all created completely from hi-tech LEDs.

Each car’s visual signature – a curve on the Saloon and the SW, claws on the RXH – is created by the daytime running lamps built into the bumper as standard. The direction indicators comprise four LEDs following the form of the daytime running lamps. The front foglamps – standard on Allure models – are installed in the ends of the front bumper in a chrome insert.

The rear lamps on the Saloon have also been redesigned to make them more horizontal than before, whether viewed from the side or from directly behind. Each contains 36 LEDs arranged in three claws and their opalescent red layout provides a lighting signature that is strongly identifiable and technological.

The dashboard now includes, as standard from the entry trim level, a seven-inch touch-screen grouping together most of the vehicle’s functions in an intuitive way. Shortcut buttons for the main menus – navigation, air conditioning, radio, connectivity, etc – are accessible at all times in the dashboard central panel. Integrating this new technology has allowed the central area to be redesigned to include fewer buttons and a new closed storage box.

Several of the 508’s existing Euro 5 engines are carried over, with the addition of new Euro 6 units. New to the 508 range is the Euro 6 BlueHDi technology, represented by two efficient versions available from launch. A 2.0-litre BlueHDi 150 six-speed manual, which has emissions of 109g/km for the Saloon and 110g/km for the SW.

Then there is the 2.0-litre BlueHDi 180 Automatic EAT6. This version hasemissions of 119g/km for the RXH and combined fuel consumption of 61.4mpg. A unique proposition in this market, the HYbrid4 technology is carried over to the new PEUGEOT 508 Saloon and the RXH version.
