Peugeot 508 1.6 THP is Great fuel efficient sedan? Yes, especially if you choose this successful 508 THP 165, the 1.6 turbo pleasant, quiet and, moreover, quite sober.
A redesigned grille which now houses the brand logo, diodes headlamps (option on Allure, standard on Feline) and taillights incorporating vertical claw shots to the side lights … the 508 has not changed much to celebrate its four years, but it is true that she did not really need. Inside, the dashboard does not evolve. However, ergonomics, dated enjoys her improvement. If the buttons are still too many on the steering wheel, Peugeot was able, through a now touch screen, remove the control knob behind the gear lever and stay in a small storage room that can accommodate small items.
The real changes of Peugeot 508 are under the hood, for example, with the 1.6 THP, which now shows 165 hp and meets the Euro 6 Available from 1300 rev / min, vigorous from 2,000 r / min and extremely quiet (69 dBA at 130 km / h), 1.6 turbo offers as much pleasure using it proves effective to overcome safely, provided downshift. Moreover, it appears quite reasonable with only 7.6 l / 100 km on average. We just regret that, as often with Peugeot, the gearshift grip and lack of precision in the guide.
But not really enough to spoil the fun road driving this big enough roomy hatchback. For if under 70 km / h, suspensions do not fully filter coating failure, beyond this speed, the 508 provides amazing comfort. While his frame hangs devilishly to the road, whatever the grip conditions. In short, a “must” for driving enthusiasts, also able to preserve the tranquility of the other occupants. And displayed in this pleasant petrol version, the Peugeot 508 is fairly competitive, given its rather full equipment.
Price : Peugeot 508 1.6 THP will be sold in the market with a starting price of 22.195 euros.
