The innovative technology on board the new 508 sedan increases the ease of driving on any journey. The Euro 6 petrol engine with Stop and Start and the turbo diesel engines contribute towards more efficient motoring, whilst the touch screen with built in sat nav will make sure you reach your destination in good time.
The new Peugeot 508 sedan puts control of all your audio and navigation equipment within easy reach in the centre of the dashboard. The 7” multi-function colour touch screen puts everything you need for a pleasurable journey right at your fingertips.
The Peugeot Connect USB box lets you listen to tracks from an MP3 player or iPod through the 508's audio system, so you could have your entire music collection in the car with you. Track listings appear on the screen and, with Bluetooth™, you can also stream music wirelessly and use it to make and receive safe, hands-free phone calls.
With the 508, you have the opportunity of using electronic recognition (keyless access and start-up) rather than the traditional keyiAllure and GT models only. So, with the identifier still in your pocket (or handbag) you can access your vehicle, start it and stop it simply by using the Start/Stop button. The vehicle can be locked again on exiting simply by touching the door handle.
Even in tight city spaces, parking the new 508 sedan is easy with the reversing camera. It’s triggered automatically when you shift into reverse, and an image of what’s behind you is displayed on the screen, helping you to reverse safely in any situation.
With a blind spot sensor (only available on Allure and GT versions), the new Peugeot 508 sedan will give you plenty of warning if there’s something in your way when you’re manoeuvring.
The 8 speakers in conjunction with Arkamys© audio processing system installed in the 508 delivers a more natural acoustic ambience. Sound quality no longer suffers from the constraints of speakers being positioned in doors (often resulting in a concentration of sound low down and to the sides). Instruments and voices are more harmoniously positioned in space, head-on to the passengers at windscreen height. JBL premium sound is also available as an option on Allure and GT versions.
The electric parking brakeiAllure and GT models only automatically engages when the engine is switched off, and disengages when the accelerator is pressed. It can always be operated manually with the control handle. The Hill Assist function combined with the electric parking brake enables temporary vehicle hold (2 seconds) when on a slope (>3%) and in the opposite direction to the gear selected.
Why waste petrol if you’re waiting at a red light or in traffic? Peugeot’s Stop & Start system (standard on the Euro 6 121kW e-THP petrol and Euro 6 133kW BlueHDi diesel engines) senses when you come to halt and stops the engine – then starts it again as soon as you want to move off. It means you use less fuel and produce up to 15% less CO2 while driving in the city.
