Stunning – Peugeot 508 Saloon
When we talk about saloon cars, the 508 by Peugeot deserves, rather demands a second look. Peugeot is a French car-brand and is known for manufacturing top-notch and high-performance saloon and sports cars. Peugeot has produced some of the best French cars over the past years and the 508 saloon goes right up on the list of its best-selling vehicles.
The 508 is a ramped up 407 but with excessive guise and poise. However, looks and class are not the only things that you bank upon while buying a Peugeot. Let’s look at the top 6 reasons why you should invest in a 508 as this car is now considered as the benchmark standard for all modern saloon cars in the automotive industry.
1. The car is overly spacious
The boot of the 508 may not be as big as some of the others in the same class. However, this boot space is catered for in the seat capacity spacing. The huge car cabin allows you to travel with ease whether you’re going alone or with your family.
Extra leg space is also the by-product of the small boot (small only when compared, otherwise the boot is spacious enough).
2. A Convenient Heads Up Display
The HUD is a dream commodity for every car driver as it gives a realistic feel of an aeroplane. Some manufacturers put the HUD right in front of the face of the driver – this is what most car drivers’ hate as this does not allow them to focus carefully on safety-critical and time-critical situations.
The 508 HUD comes with a pop-up window that you can close down in order to drive without it. All other parameters on the front console are depicted on a dot-matrix LCD rather than low light LCD screen like most of its competitors.
With soft plastic and an elegant design, the 508 is definitely not just a “junk box” like the other cars in its class. Peugeot’s design department has done a marvellous job in creating a beautiful vehicle with attractive curves and high reliability. The 508 comes with an unlimited mileage warranty for the first two years. Moreover, it also rose to the 10th rank out of 26 in the JD Power Dependability survey – this is just a mere indication of its reliability.
4. The Money Factor
Not only does the 508 costs less than various other machines in the same class, but also provides economy of fuel while on the run. The hybrid version, 1.6 and 2.0 all come with better fuel economy than its competitors and predecessors. The soft hum along with a powerful engine at an affordable price is exactly what a modern car owner is looking for.
5. An All-Rounder
Even at the $20,000 base price, the Peugeot 508 outruns every car in its category by a wide margin, making it a definite buy if you are looking for a big saloon car. Apart from being overly spacious and a low fuel consuming car, the 508 has also managed to win an award in Germany.
Established in the early 1800s, Peugeot has since then been consistently offering top-notch French automobiles to its consumers and will continue to do so, considering the kind of profits the company is making.
