Peugeot 508 (2013)

Peugeot 508 exterior

Crazy beam house makes another appearance

5 Pros

  1. True European appeal. The Peugeot 508 has the looks and badge value of a car much more expensive than its list price
  2. Some decent standard equipment in a nice interior including climate control, auto lights and wipers, fixed price servicing and a 72L tank
  3. 5 out of 5 star safety
  4. Huge boot and ample room throughout the cabin (including space for 3 adults in the back)
  5. Terrific fuel efficiency from all the engines and the Diesels are outstanding

5 Cons

  1. Sat Nav is an option on all models
  2. The ride can be a bit harsh (but this does make it very good around corners)
  3. Some French niggles like reports of intermittent electronics and cupholders that block the instrument panel
  4. Historically poor depreciation figures
  5. New Mazda 6 is a very formidable opponent (but without the badge appeal)

Concluding personality type:  Wodka: Cheap premium
