Stylish new Peugeot 508 gets £18,150 starting price

Updated: 


Peugeot's handsome new 508 will cost from £18,150 when it hits the showrooms in April.

The car, which will be available as both a saloon and an estate from launch, will be a direct competitor for the Ford Mondeo and Volkswagen Passat.


Peugeot will offer the 508 in five trim levels – Access, SR, Active, Allure and GT – with seven different engine options, including two petrol and five diesels.

The entry-level model will be the 120bhp 1.6-litre VTI Access which should be capable of 45mpg with CO2 emissions of 144g/km.

Of greater interest to the fleet buyer will be the cheapest diesel model. The Access e-HDI gets the manufacturer's 112bhp 1.6-litre engine, good for 60mpg and just 109g/km CO2.

At the other end of the range there's no large capacity petrol lump; instead Peugeot has opted to make the 204bhp 2.0-litre HDI the range topper in the £28,750 GT trim.
