Diesel or hybrid – that’s how the newly published price list of the modernized Peugeot 508 could be evaluated in short. Despite the fact that there was also talk of a petrol 1200 at the unveiling, this motorization will not be available on the Czech market.
It is the basis for both the liftback and station wagon diesel engine 1.5 BlueHDi with a power of 130 hp, which drives the front wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission. This engine is supposed to consume 5 liters of diesel fuel per 100 km in the liftback, handle the top speed of 208 km/h and accelerate to 100 km/h in 11.1 seconds. The station wagon, labeled SW, is 0.2 l/100 km thirstier and is three tenths of a second slower at 100 km/h.
Those who don’t like the smell of diesel can choose from two performance variants plug-in hybrid powertrain. This will offer 180 or 225 horsepower and again drive only the front wheels. It is based on a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine that alone produces 150 or 180 horsepower. The electric motor is the same in both versions and will offer 110 hp and 320 Nm
The Peugeot 508 has a different look and new technologies after the facelift
Acceleration to 100 is between 7.9 and 8.3 seconds, depending on the body and the version of the hybrid system, with the stronger liftback being the fastest and the weaker station wagon the slowest. Top speeds are similar, with a range of 230-250 km/h. Standardized fuel consumption is 1.1 l/100 km in the liftback and 1.2 l/100 km in the station wagon for both performance versions of the hybrid.

Basic equipment Allure is very rich in itself. In addition to an army of driving assistants, including cruise control, a wide-angle reversing camera, blind spot and lane monitoring, or parking assistant, it will also offer headlights with LED Matrix technology.
Also on board is keyless entry, automatic two-zone air conditioning, wireless smartphone mirroring, online navigation from TomTom and the option of choosing driving modes.
The second and at the same time the highest equipment GT – at least in the current price list, which does not include the sports version of the PSE; we can only hope that it will be added later – it adds, for example, adaptive cruise control, blue ambient interior lighting, Alcantara upholstery – it is possible to pay extra for Nappa leather in red as well – heated and electrically adjustable seats with AGR certification or cameras for a 360° view around the car.
Both performance versions of the plug-in hybrid share a 12.4kWh lithium-ion battery and have a 3.7kW on-board charger, suggesting a zero-to-100% charge in just under three and a half hours. According to the catalog, depending on the version, they can travel from 59 to 66 km on a single charge.
