After the launch of the 508 Saloon and
SW, acclaimed for their styling elegance, high-level build quality and
attention to detail, the 508 RXH again raises the profile of the entire
Peugeot brand, reinforcing its technological and environmental
Road presence and specific design
immediately place the 508 RXH in the world of top of the range all road
vehicles. Unique, refined, higher and wider (than a 508 SW), it is also
distinguished by a singular visual signature, with its distinctive LED
lights visible both day and night, giving an impression of three
vertical ‘lion claws’ on each side of its ‘floating’ grille, the style
of which is even more striking.
To reinforce its exclusive character,
the interior of the 508 RXH benefits from special features with
distinctive colours and luxurious materials, like the premium quality
interior and upholstery.
Its unique level of finish and
equipment is coherent with the top-of-the-range and technological
positioning of the vehicle. Richly equipped as standard (Open & Go
Keyless system, electric front seats, head up display, 18" wheels,
panoramic glass roof, dark-tinted acoustic laminated side windows,
latest generation audio and satellite navigation unit), the 508 RXH
greets its occupants with refinement and a high level of comfort.
Equipped with a 2.0-litre HDi HYbrid4
drive train, a Peugeot world first in the 3008 HYbrid4, the
diesel-electric drive unit in the 508 RXH extends driving pleasure and
freedom to travel anywhere on all roads. With a maximum power of 200
bhp, four-wheel drive and maximum torque of 450 Nm, the 508 RXH has been
designed to adapt to all uses, in a variety of conditions. Furthermore,
it opens up new perspectives in the segment, offering a 100% electric
mode (Zero Emissions), ideal for driving in town and for reducing
consumption in the Combined Cycle to 67.2 mpg, with emissions of 109
g/km of CO2.
After the launch of the 3008 HYbrid4
later this year, the Peugeot Marque will continue its innovative
strategy, combining driving sensation and advanced environmental
developments by extending HYbrid4 technology to other models.
The 508 RXH will be unveiled as a world
premiere at the Frankfurt International Motor Show in September 2011,
and will be on sale in Spring 2012.
