It is the successor of the Peugeot 407, but is generally also regarded as a replacement for the 607. The French car industry has lost completely the upper middle class. The HPA Group has the problem even twice, at Peugeot and CitroŽn. There one needed initially 5 years in order to launch the D6 as the successor of the XM and then one had to finish its production without successor in 2012.

The 607 Peugeot has also not been successful and shall now be represented by a significantly larger car than the 407. For this purpose one has wisely given up the 'lion's mouth' and the headlights tending to the A-pillar. The car has transformed pleasing to the eye at the outside, already complete with LED technology rear, but very easy to recognize as a Peugeot.

Also available with panoramic roof.

In the interior also, it is only partly particularly modern. On the steering wheel designed consciously smaller at the smaller models have been renounced. So you still look through the steering wheel on the instruments. The operability has succeeded. Even more, one rubs the eyes that a French model of this class is almost consistently praised for its processing. And by German testers also, the like to depreciate competitors from Audi, BMW and Mercedes.

370,000 sold, a good third in China.

One can only recommend the superiors of Peugeot to offer the 508 with adaptive damping soon. Perhaps one should somewhat improve at the same time the ride comfort on short bumps. By the way, with 10 centimeters longer wheelbase than the 407, the space is more than adequate at least on the rear bench seat. The somewhat too low payload capacities can be significantly improved by the 508 as SW (estate car).

Below you can see the facelifted 508 of 2014. The front has become more distinctive and including low beam, here predominates now also LED technology. The already been praised technology of the head-up display will be expanded and supplemented with a 7-inch display, in whose touch-screen were placed some button operations. Simultaneously, the number of assistants is increased and a 4-zone climate control system on offer. If that does not cause upper class feeling ... 06/14
