Even the weakest one, with just 129 horsepower, matches the maximum torque of the top-level gasoline engine. But few folk spend their lives tramping on the accelerator from rest to the open road limit, they spend most of their time between those speeds. The 1.6-liter emits pleasantly low levels of noise, vibration, and harshness, but it's not as refined as the V-6 offered in the 508's predecessor, the 406. The main instrumentation in front of the driver is positioned above the upper rim of the steering wheel, which allows it to work as sort of a head-up display. Given our obsession with SUVs, many distributors have dropped wagons from their line-up, though Mazda still sells a torquier Mazda6 Takami, Ford a hybrid Mondeo wagon, and Holden its Euro Commodore, none of which have quite the presence of this Peugeot. Towing capacity. Combined fuel economy in the European cycle is impressive at 44 mpg, but it's easy to manage at least 30 mpg, even with prolonged high-speed driving. Fancy your hand at rallying? That ride softness makes this Peugeot a perfect companion for long, effortless travel over long distances. Just look at those white LED tusks up front, the haunches over the rear wheels, and the sharp rear light clusters connected by the dark trim that seems to ape a Porsche Panamera… from the future. Yet in normal or comfort modes – we didn’t bother to try eco – it’s also a quiet, refined cruiser which proved remarkably frugal during our test stint, which included a few commutes over the Waitakere hills and a Labour Weekend drive to the Bay of Islands, fully laden. 5.7l/100km. You’re fresh out of luck – both the sedan and wagon are sold just in top-spec GT form. The good news continues inside, as interior ambience is great, too. All versions are front-wheel drive only. There also are frameless windows, and the 508's flowing tail hides a large liftgate. After 539 fairly varied km we’d logged 6.9l/100km, according to the trip computer, while the previous 1200km – we’d guess including quite a bit of ferrying around dealerships between days spent with lead-footed motor noters – had touched 7.9l/100km. Peugeot's current top-of-the-line engine for the 508, a turbocharged 1.6-liter inline-four, is based on the venerable Prince architecture. Buyers are abandoning conventional cars in droves, usually citing practicality rather than any notion of heading into the rough – after all many of the models they’re purchasing either won’t go off road, or were never designed to. Like the looks but happy to drop some of the goodies for a lower entry price? Vive le wagon. Be glad it exists, too. Diesel still does the heavy lifting under the bonnet: there’s a choice of four engines, each with four cylinders and one turbocharger, with between 127bhp and 178bhp. A conservative approach is unlikely to help the brand reestablish itself as it plans its return to the U.S. market in the near future. 1600kg. ANCAP safety rating. The estate. PSA's eight-speed automatic transmission shifts effortlessly and with surprising quickness, particularly when the 508's Sport driving mode is activated. However, the highly unscientific survey we conducted, asking random folk what they thought, brought the unanimous verdict that this car looks a lot pricier than that – most settling for a figure nearly 20K higher. Our car experts choose every product we feature. BBC Studios is a commercial company that is owned by the BBC (and just the BBC). Three diesel-power levels are available. Our test vehicle was fitted with two of the three available cost options – night vision ($3500), and the Nappa red leather, which considerably lifted the interior ($2000) – to take the total to $63,490. Handsome, isn’t it? Customer Contact Centre: 0800 500 444 2WD/4WD/AWD. The obnoxiously large mouth of recent Peugeot models has been scaled back. Handsome, isn’t it? But they haven’t. Let Zuto search the market - we work with trusted lenders to find the right car finance for you. We were more than a bit curious about the merits of the 508's peculiar steering wheel and dashboard arrangement, which is odd in that characteristically French way. The steering is direct, however, and its lightness gives the 508 an effortlessness that we like. This is the stage-ready i20N you can actually buy. Eight-speed auto with paddle shift. The forward thinking continues inside, but just because it looks like a spaceship doesn't mean it's impractical. Once inside the cabin is spacious, and the area under the hatch is massive. 580 litres rear seats up (1708 litres with rear … Again, look at the spec sheet and a keen driver might scoff at the car’s zero to 100 time. 169kW at 5500rpm and 300Nm at 2500rpm. The sweet spot will likely lie in the GT-line midriff of the range, but for now, we’ve got a kitted-out First Edition to test….
