The Peugeot 508 RXH is a rugged and reliable estate vehicle, combining practical driving sensibilities with impressive ecological considerations. A choice between a highly efficient diesel engine and an even more frugal diesel-hybrid unit make the RXH one of the most economical vehicles available in its class. These qualities, when combined with the roomy interior and off-road capabilities make the 508 RXH effortlessly suited for day-to-day situations as well as adventures that may lead it off the beaten track.
Whilst retaining the attractive curves of other Peugeot family cars, the 508 RXH underlines its robust character with a muscular front profile and underbody protection for the front bonnet. Slightly higher and wider than the other vehicles in the Peugeot range, and equipped with 18" alloy wheels, the car has an imposing road presence. The interior of the 508 RXH features half-leather trim for the seats, as well as electrically adjustable and heated front seats, which also feature electric lumbar support. Automatic dual-zone air conditioning provides climate control suiting the individual needs of the driver and front passenger, and the DAB digital radio with CD player and Bluetooth® capabilities provide effective means of in-car communication and entertainment. The 7" multifunction colour touchscreen displays the satellite navigation system, as well as an array of other important information.
The 508 RXH is powered either by a 2.0-litre 180bhp BlueHDi engine, or a Diesel HYbrid4 200bhp engine, comprising a 163bhp diesel powerplant with a 37bhp electric motor. Both editions can reach 0-62mph in less than ten seconds, with the diesel-only option very slightly quicker. The combined fuel consumption of the diesel-hybrid, however, is 70.6mpg compared to the diesel’s 61.4mpg. The low CO2 output – 104g/km for the hybrid, 119g/km for the diesel – will also be of particular interest to fleet buyers and company car drivers on the lookout for tax efficiencies.
Safety features include airbags for the driver and front passenger, and curtain airbags for the front and rear windows. Driving systems include Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Electronic Brake Force Distribution (EBFD), Emergency Braking Assistance (EBA), and Peugeot's Electronic Stability Programme and Traction Control (ESP) system. There is also a reverse parking camera, and cruise control with a speed limiter.
