Le grand boofy
PEUGEOT has become bestknown for its smaller cars— the 207 and 308, for example — with some SUVS as an aside. But the larger end of its portfolio has long been uninspiring. Remember the 407? Does anyone want to? What then of its successor, the bigger 508?
At $52,990 the topline GT has no shortage of gear — quad-zone filtered climate control, sunblinds for the rear and rear-side windows, parking sensors front and rear, hill-start assist, an electric parking brake, reach and rake adjustable steering, alarm, folding and heated exterior mirrors, and autodipping rear-view mirror.
The GT also gets the little head-up display screen with colour output, keyless entry and go, cruise control with speed limiter function, satellite
Eye of the beholder: The styling will polarise opinion but the 508 is a big improvement
