Paris Motor Show 2014: Updated Peugeot 508 appears

Published 02 October 2014

Peugeot has revealed the updated 508 to the public for the first time at the 2014 Paris Motor Show. The restyled model, available as a saloon or estate, gets updated engines and more technology. It’s due on sale shortly after the Paris Motor Show and will cost from £22,054.

Exterior styling has been overhauled with a sleeker, less fussy look and some high-tech features like full-LED lighting. The interior has been improved too, with a less cluttered centre stack and a seven-inch touchscreen system, plus a closed storage bin and more technology, including blind spot assistance and a reversing camera.

The diesel engine range includes four existing powerplants – a 1.6-litre with 115PS, offered with an automated manual, plus a 2.0-litre with either 140PS or 163PS and a 2.2-litre with 200PS.

More important is a new Euro 6 compliant 2.0-litre HDI diesel with 150PS or 180PS. The 150PS version is offered with a six-speed manual transmission and has impressively low emissions of 109g/km.

The more powerful 180PS version comes with a six-speed automatic transmission and is only available in the RXH bodystyle – a pseudo off-road variant of the estate. It produces 119g/km of CO2. The RXH is also offered with the Hybrid4 four-wheel drive diesel hybrid system, with emissions of 104g/km.

Standard equipment on the entry level Active model includes a touch screen system with navigation, dual-zone air conditioning, 18-inch alloy wheels, parking sensors, folding door mirrors and LED running lights.

Upper trim grades gain extras like an electronic parking brake and keyless entry, larger alloys, a head up display and leather upholstery. The range-topping RXH estate gets full-LED lighting and electronically adjustable seats, trimmed in half-leather.
