Overall verdict

The Top Gear car review:Peugeot 508



Final thoughts and pick of the range

A big French saloon might be an oddball choice, but the 508 looks bold, feels good and drives (mostly) well

The 508 will always be a slightly oddball choice, when you could have a default low-spec premium saloon. Or a crossover. But it has appeals - not least of which is that it does stand out. It’s oddball in a stylish way, and has a splendidly different cabin.

Dynamics are competent if slightly imperfect, but hey, when you get busy with the steering it’s still night-and-day more adept than the crossovers that are brutally displacing the mainstream saloon-hatch’s territory.
