Intelligent and innovative, the new 508 includes a variety of equipment features designed for enhanced safety and peace of mind while driving.
The new 508 saloon comes with the latest-generation Electronic Stability Program (ESP), which is able to detect the first signs of a skid and helps reduce over-steer. It keeps the car on course by reducing engine power and braking individual wheels. The ESP function is assisted by advanced brakes which include EBD (electronic brake force distribution) and EBA (emergency brake assist).
To keep you as safe as possible, the new 508 sedan has six air bags as standard – two in the front, two beside the driver and front passenger, and two along the sides of the car.
Cruise control enables you to maintain a constant speed while the limiter allows you to program a speed not to be exceeded. These functions can be set from the multi-functional steering wheel. Five speeds are programmable via the vehicle's settings menu.
The main beam assistance systemiStandard on GT, optional on Allure in conjunction with LED headlights utilises a dedicated camera at night and continually analyses the road conditions (on-coming vehicles, vehicles behind, lit urban areas, etc.) and will automatically switch the headlights from high beam to main beam and back again for the on-coming driver's visual comfort and your enhanced safety.
