How easy is it to drive?  The 508 is a midsize sedan challenging some well-established competitors such as the Toyota Camry, Nissan Altima and others. It offers a wide variety of options ranging from Heads-Up Display, Hill assist, blind spot detection mirrors and much more to make you feel comfortable and as safe as possible. You’ll find that it can sit five adult passengers without any discomfort.

Who is this car best suited for? The Peugeot 508 will suit anyone that is looking for a safe and comfortable drive with all the car technology that follows with it. It’s spacious meaning that it can be appealing for families as well as bachelors and bachelorettes. The price makes it even more attractive and affordable.

Favourite thing about the car: The car has a spacious interior, as soon as you get in you don’t feel cramped. Apart from the space, the technology offered on board is something that’s enjoyable and friendly to use, such as the Heads-Up Display or the 7-inch touchscreen Navigation system.

Overall rating: 8/10

Performance:  The only engine option we are being offered in the UAE market is a 1.6L THP (Turbo High Pressure) good for 156BHP and 230Nm torque. Combined with the 6-speed Automatic gearbox it makes for a great fuel efficiency at around 10 km/L. The car is well balanced with good steering stability.
