What we like:
pros
Improved gearbox that has given the sedan a new lease on life. Excellent ride and handling that’s befitting of a large sedan.
What we dislike:
cons
Start Stop button is hard to find and hidden in compartment.

The cabin too has been improved in the new 508. The dashboard is a cleaner and fresher design with an all-new infotainment system that combines all the buttons into its touchscreen. Thankfully though, the climate control system retains its physical buttons which makes them much easier to operate when you’re driving.

For once, the large external dimensions translate directly to a spacious interior. With a wheelbase of 2,817mm, the rear seats can easily accommodate three adults in comfort. Headroom isn’t a problem as well.

In a bid to keep the rear clean, the boot release button is cleverly hidden within the ‘0’ of the 508 insignia on the left which is reminiscent of the old 407 that had the same feature. Once opened, the boot reveals a generous amount of space at 545 litres that’s expandable to 1,581 litres.

Peugeots have been plagued with the silly robotic manual for a long time but with this latest upgrade, the French might see its fortunes turn for the better. The new 508 is a complete package and comes decently equipped with a long list of high end options as standard. While the previous gearbox might have put some people off, it’ll be a waste not to give a Pug about this new Pug.
