A modern interior design that is both practical and comfortable for its occupants is also a strength of the new Peugeot 508 range which will be available in five trim levels: Access, SR, Active, Allure and GT.

The HDi 112 diesel engine is available in two versions, with either a five-speed manual gearbox or Peugeot's innovative e-HDi Stop & Start System with a six-speed electronically controlled manual gearbox (EGC). The fitment of the e-HDi Stop & Start System technology on the Peugeot 508 enables customers to reduce fuel consumption (up to 15% in urban driving) and with the fitment of the EGC gearbox it produces just 109 g/km of CO2 in the Saloon and 110 g/km in the SW version.

The Peugeot 508 is also available with two different front suspension configurations. An all-new pseudo McPherson type front suspension will be the main option on the majority of the Peugeot 508 range. As well as improved driveability this new set-up reduces weight, as it is 12kg lighter than the design featured on the Peugeot 407. The Peugeot 508 'GT' model features a drop link double wishbone front suspension advancing the suspension design similar to the Peugeot 407. The use of a linked double wishbone helps separate suspension and steering forces to improve road holding and steering accuracy.

At the rear, the entire range is equipped with multi-arm suspension. This is designed to ensure excellent efficiency with maximum body control and ride comfort due to its superior control of longitudinal and transverse forces.
