The new Peugeot 508 has replaced the 407 and with it comes a better quality interior and a more mature look. The 407 was famed for its quirky front end but it was a little like marmite – you either liked or hated it. The 508 is more conservative and that should appeal to business drivers who will make up to 80% of its sales mix. Peugeot has come up trumps and this looks like a really viable choice in this sector. Since the arrival of the stylish RCZ coupe and the 3008 the French car maker has been going from strength to strength in terms of building good looking cars that are good to drive.
Facelift in 2013
There was a minor facelift in 2013 which was the introduction of more equipment on several of the trim levels. Although there's also a small price hike for said trims, they aim to offer better value that ever for both private and fleet buyers.
