1. Peugeot 508 - An introduction
With the 2nd generation Peugeot 508 2019, you get excitement and dependability rolled into one. Peugeot takes a break from SUV and crossover obsession of the last few years to return to what made the brand famous in the first place: midsized saloons/ sedans for family use. This is exactly what the Peugeot 508 is. That this version reincarnates as a sexy 5 door, pseudo-hatchback is just icing on the Peugeot saloon cake.

A new sleek front look is the 508's signature

2. A closer look at Peugeot 508 2019 design
2.1. Peugeot 508 2019 Exterior
The exterior of the Peugeot 508 has an Audi A5 Sportback feel, and comes with frameless doors, chrome exhaust tips and wheels that are a 100% fit for the wheel arches. Giles Vidal who designed this car, describes the profile as a “two-and-a-half-box fastback.” We just say sexy, family sedan or saloon, since we have Europe to thank for this auto. Slim LED daytime running lights at the front and also LED tail lights at the rear of the car give an edgy tech-gizmo appeal .

According to Peugeot this LED lights are designed to use less than 50% energy unlike the standard headlamps. They are also designed to help improve effectiveness and contribute to lower CO2 outflow. Full LED headlights are available for models like the GT and Allure. In addition, the alloy wheel of the car is a 17,18 or 19 as this depends on the models which are Active, Allure and GT respectively. The rear carries three-quarter panels that used to be the preserve of sports cars. The 508 has also shrunk in size, making it 80mm shorter and 51mm lower in height. This helps it make tighter turns than the competition however. Tires are 19 inches alloy.
19in-alloy wheels make for stability especially on smooth roads
2.2. Peugeot 508 2019 Interior
A bit of doleful news here. The cabin of the 508 is not the most comfortable you’ve ever been in, and that’s a fact. Head room as well as leg room are at a premium, and you might get a bit fed up with all the plastic veneer. For a small family of course, say of four, it’s a good fit, but anything larger, and there might be some cramps because of space. However, this interior though small, is simply elegant, and enthusiasts will love the stylish look.
The elegant interior of the 508 is either half leather or fabric
2.3. Peugeot 508 2019 Infotainment technology
Gadget wise, finally the central display called the i-cockpit, is finally accessible (looking over the steering wheel) unlike in many Peugeot cars. Of course it is touchscreen, all 12.3 inches of it. There is a central panel of short-cut buttons designed like keyboard keys, which is either good or bad depending on whether you miss a resting place for your arm the position of which it has taken. In addition the infotainment system has a built-in standard TomTom sat navigation, DAB radio, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto along with voice recognition, and has also Bluetooth with USB for streaming music wirelessly and also for receiving and sending, keyless access and start-up (you can start and stop your vehicle by simply pressing this button).

It also has about 8 speakers which is in conjunction with Arkamys audio processing system. Focal premium audio comes with the GT trim option. There is also a reverse camera that displays a back view or what is behind your car on your car screen.
Shortcut keys grant you quicker access to functions
2.4. Peugeot 508 2019 other components
The plastic steering wheel has few control buttons at the sides while bearing the Peugeot logo at the center. It is positioned a little low for total comfort though, but guess you get used to this.
The steering is plastic but solid apart from being a little low for some
Depending on the trim you are purchasing, the Peugeot 508 comes with half leather seats and also fabric seats option. Generally seats are comfortable if not luxurious, especially for front passengers. Back seat passengers will be cramped for room unless they are children.
Back seat passengers might feel a bit cramped but kids will love its being comfy
Like most saloons/sedans in its range, the boot of the car has less space though it is still enough for a small family. It has 487-liter capacity when the rear seats are in normal position. It can be increased to 1,537 liters when the rear seats are folded flat.
The boot is extendable thanks to the hatchback status
