If you are looking for a mid-size family car that combines style, performance, and efficiency, you might want to consider the Peugeot 508. This is the second generation of the flagship model from the French brand, and it has undergone a radical transformation that makes it stand out from the crowd.

The Peugeot 508 is not your typical saloon. It has a sleek and sporty fastback design that gives it a coupé-like silhouette. It also features frameless doors, a low roofline, and a distinctive front end with a new logo and LED headlights. The rear end is equally striking, with a light bar that spans across the boot lid and three-claw taillights.

The interior of the Peugeot 508 is equally impressive. It showcases the brand's i-Cockpit concept, which consists of a small steering wheel, a digital instrument cluster, and a 10-inch touchscreen infotainment system. The cabin is spacious and comfortable, with high-quality materials and plenty of features. The boot is also generous, with 487 liters of space in the saloon version and 530 liters in the SW estate version.

The Peugeot 508 offers a range of engines to suit different needs and preferences. There are three petrol options: a 1.6-liter turbocharged unit with either 178 hp or 222 hp and a 2.0-liter turbocharged unit with 197 hp. There are also two diesel options: a 1.5-liter turbocharged unit with 128 hp and a 2.0-liter turbocharged unit with either 158 hp or 178 hp. All engines are paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission.

But the most interesting option is the plug-in hybrid (PHEV) version, which combines a 1.6-liter petrol engine with an electric motor and a battery pack. This version delivers 222 hp and can travel up to 39 miles on electric power alone. It also has low CO2 emissions and fuel consumption, making it an ideal choice for company car drivers who want to save on tax and running costs.

The Peugeot 508 is not only efficient but also fun to drive. It has a well-balanced chassis that provides good grip and stability on the road. The steering is quick and responsive, and the suspension is well-tuned to absorb bumps and potholes. The Peugeot 508 also comes with various driving modes that allow you to adjust the engine, transmission, steering, and suspension settings according to your mood and driving conditions.

The Peugeot 508 is also well-equipped with safety and technology features. It comes with standard items such as adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assist, blind spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, automatic emergency braking, parking sensors, reversing camera, wireless charging, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and more. Higher trim levels add extras such as leather seats, heated seats, massage function, panoramic sunroof, head-up display, night vision camera, adaptive headlights, and more.

The Peugeot 508 starts from $42,170 for the base Allure trim level and goes up to $66,670 for the top-of-the-line Peugeot 508 PSE (PEUGEOT SPORT ENGINEERED) trim level. The PSE version is the most powerful and sporty variant of the Peugeot 508, with a hybrid system that produces 355 hp and allows it to sprint from 0 to 62 mph in 5.2 seconds.
