Peugeot 508 RXH & 508 Saloon HYbrid4 arrive in the UK
The Peugeot 508 RXH HYbrid4 is joined by the Peugeot 508 saloon HYbrid4 with UK price and specifications revealed.
The Peugeot 508 RXH HYbrid4 – using Peugeot’s 4WD diesel hybrid setup – debuted at Frankfurt last year and is being joined a the 508 HYbrid4 saloon in the UK.
Peugeot has now announced prices and specs for both the range-topping RXH hybrid estate and the 508 hybrid saloon – a cheaper offering and perfect for company car buyers with its sub-100g/km CO2 emissions, 100 per cent first year writing-down allowance and decent BIK rates.
Both the HYbrid4 models make use of Peugeot’s diesel hybrid which offers a 2.0 litre HDI 163 diesel lump driving the front wheels and a 37bhp electric motor powering the back axle.
The new 508 HYbrid4 saloon uses its hybrid powertrain to improve performance and economy on the 508 and manages to deliver just 95g/km CO2 and average economy of 78.5mpg. Despite the low-tax, high-economy figures the hybrid 508 still manages to get to 62mph in 9 seconds and on to 130mph.
Based on the 508 Allure trim level, the 508 HYbrid4 gets Cruise, Hill Assist, Climate, half leather, SatNav, Bluetooth, 18″ alloys and auto lights and wipers, all for a starting price of £31,450.
The all singing, all dancing 508 RXH Hybrid4 comes only as an estate (SW in Peugeot-speak) and gets most of the toys on the Peugeot option list thrown at it. That means better alloys, parallel parking assist, panoramic roof, heads-up display and sits up higher in ‘Allroad’ style. It costs from £33,695.
The Peugeot 508 RXH arrives in May and the 508 Saloon HYbrid4 in July, but both are now available to order immediately.
