Behind the wheel of the new Peugeot 508 for a week

A road trip is the perfect way to explore more of the UK. I love traveling through countless pretty towns and beautiful countryside and knowing there will always be a delicious meal at the end of the journey.

I felt pretty excited to spend a whirlwind week behind the wheel of the new Peugeot 508 and explore the garden of England with its hop gardens, vineyards, castles and of course, its picturesque countryside. Kent is a truly wonderful place to book a holiday or a staycation at any time of the year.

Now, the car in itself is arguably one of the most beautiful (winner of the ‘Style Award’ at the 2018 Carwow Awards) fast and smooth cars I’ve been lucky enough to drive recently. The new Peugeot 508 feels sleek, sophisticated and classic – perfect for those families who don’t want to compromise on design.

There are four main trim levels: Active, Allure, GT Line and GT. I drove a GT in a sophisticated and attention-grabbing red, with black Nappa leather upholstery and intricate aikinite double stitch detail on the inside. I personally loved the 8 pocket multi-point massage function from the front seats and the frameless doors.

The boot was incredibly spacious compare to our car and looked inviting enough to have a lie down (as photographed below).

The new Peugeot 508 features a fantastic range of advanced technological features – a 10.0” HD widescreen touchscreen, a night vision feature that can spot pedestrians and dogs up to 200mm ahead and a 180° color reversing camera, all designed to take the stress out of driving. I struggle when I have to park in tight spaces, but the front and rear sensors make parking a breeze. Even for a nervous driver like me!

All in all, I really enjoyed driving the new Peugeot 508 and felt incredibly comfortable and safe – you can book your own test drive on
