How did the 508, in both petrol saloon and diesel estate forms, measure up to premium rivals in the cold light of day? - 12th February 2020

At least it won’t be boring.

Those were my words on Peugeot’s smart, stylish Peugeot 508 saloon in my opening report last summer. After plenty of time to get to know first the saloon, or Fastback as Peugeot calls it, and then the SW estate variant, do I stand by that statement? Yes… and no.

Yes, in the sense that Peugeot’s alternative to the beloved BMW 3 Series is really that. There: a positive answer to why we were running it, straight up. But although the 508 offers pleasing refinement, plenty of comfort over long distances and respectable figures when it comes to fuel forecourt visits, we can’t say it’s an equal to Munich’s benchmark saloon – nor either for those from Stuttgart and Ingolstadt for that matter. In terms of performance, it’s just not that special.

Life with the 508 is easy and, given its striking looks in both saloon and wagon form, it’s always a pleasure to return to. But once the miles begin to rack up, it’s also the type of car you stop thinking about. So was my opening statement wrong? ‘Boring’ sounds harsh. ‘Unremarkable’ is fairer. That’s meant as a back-handed compliment: sometimes, especially on dull commutes in heavy traffic, a car that doesn’t ask too much from you and delivers you safely to your destination is just the ticket.

On that point, neither car came anywhere close to letting me down during the test, which really shouldn’t be taken for granted, even today. The GT-spec saloon had the more engaging engine, its 1.6-litre petrol inevitably offering more power and less torque than the SW’s 1.5-litre diesel. Neither could be described as fast, but the saloon picked up from rest promptly and perked up in Sport mode on flowing A-roads. But did it deserve that GT badge? The connotations of that abbreviation are a lot to live up to. The 508 looks the part, and even offers a faint whiff of American muscle car – but it’s not really a Ford Mustang, or anything close.

Peugeot's handsome mid-sized saloon and wagon get a new face and improved interior

The SW’s diesel was fantastic over distance, happily managing 600 miles between fuel stops without any electric hybrid assistance. (A plug-in hybrid version is on the near horizon.) But its refinement was lost if urgent acceleration, say at a busy roundabout, was called upon. The eight-speed automatic, silky at a cruise, would lurch a little in search of a suitable low gear and delay the delivery of (not very much) power. Gently does it was best and you soon learned to drive accordingly.

On motorways and A-roads, the ride was always on the refined side of firm, making long journeys serene in a manner that genuinely stands comparison with so-called ‘premium’ rivals. Passengers rarely passed comment, again perhaps an example of that back-handed compliment of a car being taken for granted. On rutted B-roads around my home, the Peugeot impressed in its ability to absorb the worst that could be thrown at it. Dodging potholes is all part of the game around these parts, but when we hit one, the 508 coped well on its 18in flashy ‘diamond cut’ wheels. (The saloon’s were 19s, but we barely noticed the difference.)

Inside, boot space felt modest with the estate but generous in the saloon, perhaps because expectations were as lowered as that sweeping fastback tail. The much vaunted i-Cockpit was a pleasant and comfortable place to be. The seats were supportive to the point that I forgot my old habit of fiddling with the electric controls to tweak my position on long journeys. I really didn’t need to.

Back to top

During family use, plugging in seatbelts for small children on booster seats was a pain – sometimes literally if you cracked your head on the relatively low doorline. The buckles are buried deep into the rear bench and it’s an effort to locate them leaning over, especially in the dark. It almost made us long for a high-riding, easy-access SUV, dammit. The piano key menu controls split opinion on style, as did the faux carbonfibre. But most functions are buried within the touchscreen, including climate controls – which is just annoying and not a little dangerous. The interior designers for too many car brands need to think more about eyes off the road.

Small gripes? The abrupt engine stop/start function, auto-dip headlights that couldn’t be fully trusted and the small steering wheel obscuring the views of the dashboard and control stalks. The wheel itself, a modern Peugeot signature, was novel at first but that soon wore off. Its road feedback made the car easy to place, although the steering was sometimes overly light during sweeping bends.

But the thing that really stood out from life with a 508 is just how much you are in the minority, at least on UK roads. Even now, I can count on two hands the number of saloons I’ve seen – and need only a couple of digits on one for the estate. These are rare cars, which immediately makes them more interesting, especially among today’s ubiquitous BMW, Mercedes and Audi hordes. Want something different, something stylish, something that looks and feels genuinely French? Go for the Peugeot.

Back to top

SUVs, for better but mostly for worse, are where it’s at for car buyers today. That means too many are missing out on decent, well-engineered, likeable saloons like this. Then again, if there were loads of them on our roads, the attributes that make the 508 so dependably unremarkable might edge it into the boring zone. We can’t have that. So perhaps don’t buy one, after all. Keep ’em rare.

Second Opinion

The 508 SW doesn’t look or feel like an estate – until you need it to. I love the stylish lines of the saloon, and not much is lost in translation to capacious estate. It’s nimble for a car of its size, too, but still feels like a big diesel estate when on motorway cruises. A winning combination, that.

Love it:

Economy Diesel is still a great option for longdistance drivers. A 600-mile range eased the strain of commuting.

Comfort No sign of backache or fatigue after time spent in the i-Cockpit. Very respectable refinement, too.

Styling This is a good-looking car. Low-slung beats high-riding SUV in our book. Chapeau, Peugeot.

Loathe it:

Touchscreen controls Burying important controls such as temperature within the touchscreen is not user-friendly.

Family Practicality Only downside of that low-slung character is getting kids plugged in and out of the rear sits.

Life with a Peugeot 508 SW: Month 4

Stylish estate proves its worth as city slicker and holiday-season mile eater - 29th January 2020

The festive season is always a baptism of fire for a new family car, and standout good looks weren’t going to get our 508 SW out of any train station shuttle runs or refuse centre visits.

But before filling the boot with badly wrapped board games and biscuits and setting sail from south London for the annual family get-together, I wanted to see if it’s still possible to use a car of this size in a congested city. First impressions? Not bad at all. It’s easy to be daunted by the 508’s long, squat stature, big overhangs and limited rear visibility, but at no point did it feel cumbersome – even when parallel parking on narrow streets or wriggling out of high-kerbed car parks.

Initial concerns regarding that narrow rear windscreen were abated by the excellent reversing camera, which switches seamlessly between bird’s-eye and 180deg views for a confidence-inspiring inspection behind. The rear parking sensors are a bit keen – even stressfully so in some instances – but being able to deftly slot the 508 into the tightest of spaces is little short of physics-defying. Not even a side-by-side comparison with the parking aids in an Audi A6 Avant could cast a shadow over the Peugeot.

The Pug’s electronics weren’t always my friend, however. Like the tech-sharing DS 7 Crossback we ran last year, there are a number of assistance programmes that frustrate and annoy when you’re just trying to drive. It’s almost standard practice when driving the PSA Group’s new models to deactivate the overbearing lane-keep assist function (forget and you’ll be harshly reminded when merging onto a motorway), but it was the hazard warning alarm that really made life difficult in the 508.

A loud ‘bong’ sounds when entering the vicinity of a speed camera, traffic light or other piece of road furniture that you really should be aware of anyway, and then again once you’ve passed it. Obviously it sounded every 30 seconds in more built-up areas, making this is a ‘safety feature’ that might distract rather than protect. Several minutes trawling through the vehicle’s settings elicited no solution, but colleagues who suffered the same experience in other PSA models showed me the off switch: weirdly, it’s buried in the sat-nav settings.

Peugeot 508 sw longterm review   1

For the most part I got on with Peugeot’s i-Cockpit set-up, but did once find myself enduring three minutes of Ed Sheeran when changing the radio station was going to take too much focus off the road.

Away from London the 508 came into its own as a stylish and surprisingly engaging alternative to rivals from Skoda, Volkswagen and Ford. Its rakish, muscular stance (and probably its relative rarity) won several second glances from pedestrians, and passengers praised its comfortable, roomy cabin. A well-cushioned secondary ride – largely a by-product of our test car’s generous tyre sidewalls – ensured that coffee cups retained all their contents even on Kent’s most neglected stretches of Tarmac, and even my tallest friends were comfortable in the back in spite of the sloping roofline.

I did, however, struggle to reconcile the luxurious cabin and svelte styling with the powertrain’s agricultural nature. At idle the 1.5-litre diesel throbs and rumbles like a tractor and doesn’t really have the low-down torque to justify a bit of roughness when getting off the line.

Similarly, gearchanges are a far less elegant affair than might be expected at this price point. The eight-speed auto hangs on to gears just that bit too long at low speed before dropping too suddenly into the next ratio. I stopped noticing after a while, but at least two of my festive season co-pilots said they felt a bit queasy after a long-ish jaunt. I wonder if the new plug-in version might go some way towards rectifying some of these low-speed quibbles.

From chilly to toasty - 15th January 2020

Crikey, these chilly mornings… Thankfully, despite being a diesel, the 508 SW heats up and demists quickly, even after a hard frost. Turn everything up and wait five minutes, resist the urge to scrape and the commute can begin. The effective heated seats have three settings: a quick blast of three bars soon brings a warm glow to my cheeks.

Not quite quick enough in one area - 24th December 2019

I struggle with some automated functions in cars. Take headlights: if I want full beam, I’ll pull back the stalk myself. Really, it’s no trouble. On the Peugeot, auto mode dips the lights a millisecond too long after sensing the glare of a vehicle coming the other way and never when lights are reflected before you see the vehicle coming. I beat it to the punch every time. Something else to turn off, then.

All change: we’ve swapped a petrol fastback for a diesel estate. Good move or not? - 4th December 2019

Life with the estate version of Peugeot’s smart 508 is passing as effortlessly as it was in the GT fastback. This is a smooth, sophisticated motor car. I was about to add ‘for a Peugeot’ to that sentence, but perhaps in 2019 I really shouldn’t.

The change of shape has naturally brought a variation in price and spec, too. Let’s start with the engine. From 1.6-litre inline four-cylinder turbocharged petrol, we’ve switched to 1.5-litre inline four turbocharged diesel. That results in a notable drop in power: 225bhp versus a modest 130bhp. But naturally what we’ve lost in that regard we’ve gained in torque: 221lb ft at 2750rpm versus 300lb ft at 1750rpm.

Back to top

Still, you can’t help but notice the loss in outright performance. The petrol GT has a top speed of 155mph and a pert 0-62mph time of 7.3sec. The diesel SW runs out of puff at 129mph and takes an unremarkable 10.1sec to do the 0-62mph.

On price, there’s a significant difference. The fastback base amount might raise the odd eyebrow at £36,420, with the estate coming in at £32,280, or £33,435 with the options fitted to our car. Add in the diesel’s big drop in combined CO2 emissions – 130-132g/km plays 92-98g/km – and on face value the wagon has it.

Peugeot 508 sw static front

There’s little in it on dimensions. On the same 2793mm wheelbase, the estate is identical in width, 17mm taller and (inevitably) 28mm longer. At 1500kg, the kerb weight is only up by 80kg on the saloon and, of course, you gain in luggage capacity, but not by a huge amount given the fastback’s generosity in this regard despite its svelte rear lines. Seats up, the estate gives you 530 litres of boot space versus 487, stretching to 1780 litres versus 1537 with the seats down. Both have proven more than up to the task of daily family life, but for special trips – picking up an office desk with two small children in the car – the estate fell well short. Most would, to be fair. We reverted to the packaging marvel that is our trusty 10-year-old Ford S-Max for that one.

The driving comparison so far? In honesty, despite the spec differences, there’s little to choose between the variants. Refinement levels remain admirably high, the diesel delivering what power it has with little fuss or noise. Yes, there’s a diesel rattle on start-up from cold, but fine soundproofing ensures it’s remote, and once the engine is warm, it settles down anyway. At a cruise, all is quiet.

Back to top

Primary ride on the 18in wheels (the petrol fastback rode on 19in) is untroubled and, as previously, the eight-speed automatic gearbox is smooth and makes progress easy.

Steering remains light – perhaps too much on occasion, as if the wheels are floating on a bubble of air. That’s fine on motorways but, on sweeping country A-roads, a more pronounced sensation of grip to the surface would be welcome. It will be interesting to see how it feels on frosty roads, as winter takes hold. Will there be any sensation at all through the trademark small-diameter steering wheel?

The interior is identical to the GT fastback’s, so the i-Cockpit’s attributes – comfy seats, pleasant ambience – still stand. But that means its drawbacks do, too: infuriating warning systems that take ages to turn off because the menus are hard to navigate and a touchscreen that doesn’t always respond to first contact. It’s a distraction from the road.

But I’ve saved the best bit about the 508 SW to last. In the month we’ve run it so far, I’ve averaged 58mpg on journeys predominantly made up of my 80-mile round commute to work, which means I’m edging 600 miles between fill-ups. Once again, on this aspect alone, you can’t beat diesel.

Love it:

DAB radio signal In the GT, this was under ‘loathe it’ because the signal kept dropping. It doesn’t in the SW. Odd.

Loathe it:

Goodbye fastback, hello estate - 13th November 2019

End of intermission. The red 508 GT saloon was returned some time ago, but finally our replacement has landed to resume our Peugeot test with this, the SW GT Line Blue HDi – or, put another way, the estate version. From 1.6 petrol we switch to 1.5 diesel, powering a smart loadlugger that’s proving as rare a sight on UK roads as its saloon sibling. Time to rack up the miles.

The best angle - 14th August 2019

Do you have a favourite view of your car, an angle that sums up best why it presses your buttons? On the Peugeot 508, the raking fastback line from the roof, down the rear screen to the short bootlid, for me, is the car’s strong point. Given how sharp design is vital to Peugeot’s new-generation appeal, it won’t be a coincidence that the GT logo sits on a signature feature.

Life in the i-Cockpit is proving comfortable – if perplexing - 31st July 2019

You’ve got to love marketing speak. Sometimes it states the bleedin’ obvious, sometimes you simply wonder: what does that actually mean?

I’ve been living in (not literally, but it feels like it) Peugeot’s much-vaunted i-Cockpit for some weeks now, and first impressions have morphed into something more solid. But before picking through the detail, I returned to Peugeot’s info gubbins to check what I’m supposed to think…

They key messages from the i-Cockpit “philosophy” are to be “a driving environment that puts you in control” (that’s the bleedin’ obvious, then. A cockpit that doesn’t would be a problem); and one that allows “a greater connection to the road”.

That second one is more pertinent. Steering, driving position and comfort are where Peugeot can hope to deliver in this regard. So does it? I’ve previously mentioned the small steering wheel, which adds a welcome sporting flavour but blocks a complete view of the dashboard.

So does size matter? In this case, yes. The small diameter contributes to a directness and reasonable feedback that inspires a modicum of confidence. The dash sits high in your eyeline, above the small wheel, to be “more within your field of vision” rather than viewing dials through the spokes as is usual on most cars. I hadn’t really thought much about it until I re-read the bumf. In truth, it’s what you can’t see that is more noticeable than what you can. Beyond the dash, the wheel’s positioning and the manual gearchange paddles totally cut off any view of the indicator and wiper stalks. Sure, you don’t have to look at these often when driving, but it would be nice to have a choice.

The other oddity, which feels like a weird oversight in 2019, is the lack of a mileage countdown on the fuel gauge. There’s just an old-fashioned bar that decreases in height as the fuel level recedes. For someone who has always been a terrible range worrier (Lord knows what I’d be like in an electric car), the lack of security of not having a mileage countdown feels like a step back into the past – and I’m sure I refuel earlier than I strictly need to because of it.

Seating gets a solid tick this far into our test. The Nappa Mistral leather in our GT looks and feels great, with lumbar support proving firm but comfortable over distance. My legs tend to be stiff after even medium-length journeys, but to be fair that might just be me as I creep with a cloying inevitability towards a certain age… Front and side views are good for a relatively low car, but I’m proving rubbish at judging how close I can get to a car park wall when nosing in (again, that might just be me). The rear view is limited through the raked fastback window, but when parking the excellent rear camera steps in. Only when I drive our ageing family Ford S-Max, which lacks all digital sophistication, do I realise how reliant I have become on it.

The tablet-shaped 10in high-def infotainment screen grates in terms of aesthetics (integrated units look so much better), but its position makes it easy to glance at while in motion. The characterful ‘piano keys’ for the menu options are a plus, too, and add a welcome physicality to its functions.

So does the i-Cockpit put one “in control”? Er, yes, of course. But does it contribute to a “greater connection to the road”? Okay, let’s give the marketeers a break: yes, the interior does help make this a pleasant car to drive. With odd reservations.

Love it:

Lane assist. Yes, really But only because the button to turn it off is so accessible (below right of the steering wheel). Always pressed soon after starting up.

Loathe it:

DAB radio reception. It drops out far too often for a system in a car at this price. Every day in the same ‘black spots’ the silence is deafening.

Peugeot’s signature small steering wheel feels more like something you’d find in a little sports car, but that’s no bad thing.

Our fastback is already turning heads but will it have the mettle to win hearts, too? - 3rd July 2019

There’s a giant billboard on one of my occasional routes to work. Earlier this year, it drew my eye every time I passed it, plastered as it was with this, Peugeot’s all-new Peugeot 508 coupé-saloon. I’d read what Autocar colleagues had written about it, I’d seen the pics and here, in giant-sized, perfectly airbrushed form, it looked rakish, potent even – and oh-so-very French. Already aware it was coming my way for long-term test duties, I was excited.

Twenty-odd years ago, 405s and 406s inspired the same adjectives as they added a touch of style to the repmobile D-segment, and then matched their striking looks with decent driving dynamics, too. But in recent years, Peugeots got lost among the jostling pack in this deeply competitive market: they became, in a word, boring. Rejuvenation was much needed, and when it came, naturally the plaudits followed.

Autocar’s recognition of Gilles Vidal this year, by making him our Design Hero at our annual awards do, is acknowledgement of that turnaround. In our citation to Peugeot’s director of style (now that’s a job title anyone would covet), we even labelled the 508 a “masterpiece”.

But not everything has come up smelling of freshly baked baguettes. Our four-star verdict opined the 508 was “stylish and likeable but lacking the polish of more premium rivals” and, more recently, Matt Prior judged it fourth out of four in a non-German saloon shootout with the Volvo S60, the Kia Stinger and the Alfa Romeo Giulia. The competition in this segment is indeed as tough as they come when you also consider the 508 faces the Jaguar XE, Mercedes-Benz C-Class variants and the all-conquering BMW 3 Series.

So can this really stand as a viable alternative to the German premiums that our brief demands us to investigate? My recent experience in two Audi A6 executive saloons, while admittedly a step or two above the 508’s price range, size and spec, should be a useful barometer.

On first acquaintance, those warm feelings inspired by the billboard remained toasty. This is undoubtedly a stylish car, as a pleasing reaction from a colleague on sibling title Classic & Sports Car attests. After I’d passed her one morning on the M3 motorway, she made a point of speeding up to take another look, intrigued by its unfamiliarity, but more by its natural good looks – although another colleague’s critical eye for the vertical running light ‘tusks’ in the nose has struck a lasting discordant note.

Still, there’s something faintly ‘muscular’ about the 508. A subtle flavour of French Ford Mustang, perhaps? From some angles, I’d say so. That fastback rear end at least appears to carry some stars ’n’ stripes inspiration.

The variant we have chosen is the GT, one down from the range-topping First Edition and likely over time to prove a popular choice. On engines, we plumped for the 1.6-litre PureTech petrol over the 2.0-litre BlueHDi diesel, partly because of the black pump’s increasing decline towards redundancy in the UK, but also to find out if a relatively modest-sized powerplant could live up to the GT tag that no car should carry lightly.

The only option taken up was the paint job, but then the 508 does come equipped with a respectable amount of standard kit, largely courtesy of Peugeot’s much-vaunted i-Cockpit. More on that to come in the following weeks.

Back to top

First impressions? The first thing I did was bump my head on the roofline as I tried to get in. It’s no GT40, but at 1.4m from the ground, it’s relatively low. Matt Saunders’ second opinion (or rather his wife’s) rang a bell, too. That fastback rear looks the part but might knock a few marks off the score when it comes to family practicalities. Still, the Alcantara and leather quilted seats are smart, and once I’d rubbed my head, I realised I liked what I was seeing. That small leather steering wheel I’d read so much about was novel from the off, too – although does it suit such a car? Time will tell.

2 Peugeot 508 2019 lt hero side

Out on the road, the eight-speed automatic gearbox appears well mated to the engine, offering silky acceleration and quiet refinement on A-roads and motorways. Economy is a little disappointing so far, but in the context of the mpg marvel that is the Audi A6, that’s hardly a shock. More surprising is the lack of part-electrification. That’s for the future, apparently, but in our fast-changing world when certain buyers have new priorities, that might hurt sales.

Then again, Peugeot boss Jean-Philippe Imparato told us at launch that “the 508 will not affect our profit and loss”, given that 60% of company profit now comes from SUVs. Saloons matter less than they used to, apparently – but not to us.

There’s much here that should appeal and getting under the skin of those French curves should help us discover whether a Peugeot really can stand comparison as a practical, economical and family-friendly driver’s car alongside and against something refined from Munich, Stuttgart or Ingolstadt.

Back to top

At least it won’t be boring.

Second Opinion

It’s not often that my better half passes comment on a test car, but Damo’s 508 inspired both wrath and praise from the good Mrs Saunders. She liked the outward styling. She thought the classy interior ambience a pleasant surprise. But the language she used after leaning in to help belt the kids into their booster seats made me glad that she’d told them to cover their ears. In her defence, very few saloons this size offer such meagre rear quarters.

If the lane assist is kicking in it's because you're not indicating. If you use your indicators it won't bother you and you won't need to turn it off.

Do you mean range?

I've never seen a car that has a countdown on a fuel gauge! Mercedes used to fit a % on the current S-Class. It used to say 50% fuel left, rather than show half tank, but even they have removed that during the facelift.

Many cars have a range function as part of the trip computer. So does the Peugeot. Just change it from trip, or average fuel consumption, or whatever you have it on, so that it displays range.
