After the launch of the 508 Saloon and 508 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 leadership.
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.
