You have four reasons to go for the all new Peugeot 508 RXH. They include the 508’s all-road styling concept, signature lighting, quality and reliability as well as the car’s diesel Hybrid4 technology. The Hybrid4 diesel engine, available on the New 508 RXH, gives you the benefit of four combined technologies in one car: the diesel engine, an electric motor, second-generation e-HDi Stop & Start and an electronically-controlled sequential manual gearbox.There is no problem switching to any of the four driving modes. Its centre console selection dial makes choosing between AUTO, SPORT, ZEV (100% electric) and Four-wheel drive modes so simple – even while you’re driving. All these features combine to make the new Peugeot what it is most noted for: high-performance all-roader capability that combines sheer driving enjoyment with total freedom of movement.

“The Peugeot 508 RXH is a comfortable, four-wheel drive hybrid estate car that comes loaded with standard equipment.”

The 508 RXH is based on the 508 SW, but is higher and wider and gets more rugged looking bodywork. It also features the same hybrid engine, which combines a diesel engine to drive the front tyres and an electric motor to turn the rears, as the 308 Hybrid4. Because of its four-wheel drive abilities, and the fact that it’s only available in one trim level with all the luxury equipment you could need, it’s a direct rival for the Audi A4 Allroad and Volkswagen Passat Alltrak.

Classified as an all-roader, the New Peugeot 508 RXH has an allure that’s all its own. Strong hints of its powerful personality can be found in the unique design of its front end and in the bumpers – a potent combination of elegance and toughness. Its extended wheel arches and raised ground clearance bear witness to the ability of the New 508 RXH to deliver sterling performance on every kind of road surface.

The unique features of the 508 are made up of its signature lighting. The distinctive front daytime running lights of the New 508 RXH are designed to create the signature feline effect of three claws. The optional full LED headlamps accentuate this even more, giving the car real stand out quality.

Another unique feature is its quality and reliability. With its elevated driving position and its choice of diesel or diesel/hybrid engines, the New 508 RXH offers a unique driving experience, allowing you to enjoy unprecedented driving sensations wherever you go. The 2.0L BlueHDi 180hp Diesel particulate filter engine (available for the first time on 508 RXH) delivers exceptional performance. With its 180hp, it’s great around town and over long distances – an invitation to take to the open road.

Moreover, the diesel hybrid4 technology is unique in its segment. The new Peugeot 508 RXH offers the choice of Hybrid4 technology, combining the 163hp Diesel 2.0 HDi engine with a 37hp electric engine – and the result is exceptional performance that’s surprisingly quiet and tranquil. With a choice of four driving modes to ensure a delightful driving experience – Auto, Sport, 4WD and ZEV – the New 508 RXH Hybrid4 also delivers fuel consumption and CO2 emissions that are among the lowest in the segment. With 104g CO2/km and a combined fuel cycle consumption of 4 litres/100 km, responsible driving pleasure becomes a reality.
