Energetic, charismatic and packed with the latest technology, the new Peugeot 508 Fastback is a saloon that doesn’t compromise on any element. With its aggressive looks, purposeful attitude and premium cabin, it makes every drive a true pleasure.
This athletic saloon takes its inspiration from sports coupés, boasting a low-slung body and tapering roofline that gives it an aerodynamic presence. This is complemented by frameless doors, which lend a sleek, uninterrupted finish and thoughtful touches such as thickened glass to keep road noise out of the cabin. An optional panoramic glass roof, meanwhile, bathes the interior in natural light, while distinctive vertical LED daytime running lights enhance visibility at all times.
Choose the GT models for premium features such as 19-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels and bespoke GT badging, setting you apart further from the rest.
Step inside and you’ll find a carefully crafted and finished cabin that’s designed to make you feel instantly at home. High-quality materials surround you and contoured seats envelop you, providing the support you need for a comfortable journey. GT models take the luxurious feel to the next level with full grain Nappa leather upholstery and seats with a multi-point massage function.
Space and practicality are priorities too: a host of clever storage cubbies and pockets ensure all your personal items are within easy reach. With a hatchback-style tailgate too, there’s 487 litres in the boot too.
Ignite the engine and you’ll find the new Peugeot 508 Fastback smooth and quiet, gliding along the road with effortless precision. A 1.5-litre BlueHDi diesel is the standard unit, producing 131hp and taking you from 0-62mph in under 10 seconds. Despite this mighty performance, efficiency isn’t compromised: achieving 74.3mpg on the combined cycle, it proves highly economical.
First Edition and GT models have the option of a 1.6-litre PureTech petrol engine, which develops an impressive 224hp and gets you to 62mph from a standstill in only 7.3 seconds. This power is tempered with low emissions – just 131g/km – and is controlled by the innovative eAT8 automatic gearbox.
Driving the Peugeot 508 Fastback is a whole new experience. Not only are you travelling in supreme comfort, there’s a host of technology to entertain and protect you. The 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, for example, presents clear, concise performance information, while an HD capacitive touchscreen uses Mirror Screen function to enable you to access compatible smartphone apps on the move.
Keeping you safe is the Safety Pack, which is standard on all versions and includes advanced features such as Automatic Emergency Braking, Lane Keeping Assist and Speed Limit Recognition.
