The 508 replaced the old 407 in 2011 and represented a giant leap forward for the Peugeot brand in every category. This was especially the case when it came to standard equipment as the 508 is well kitted out with alloy wheels, multi-function steering wheel, cruise control, DAB digital radio and Bluetooth as standard. It has a stylish and innovative dash layout that is ergonomically excellent. There is plenty of space on board with ample head and leg room for driver and passengers alike. With 545 litres of space, there is plenty of room in the boot too and this can be further extended by folding the split rear seats. For a big car it is quite easy to manoeuvre and feels light on the road. The 1.6 diesel found particular favour with Irish buyers and its not hard to see why as it provides a fine blend of performance and economy. A comfortable and affordable option that is well specced.
