When a manufacturer changes the name of a vehicle, in this case from the Peugeot 508 to the 508 Fastback, you hold your breath… is it a cover up, a plaster or something all too rare, a good car made better? In this case, it’s the latter; the new Peugeot Fastback looks the business, drives like it and is right up there with the luxury coupe influenced family cars it seeks to displace.
In terms of design, Peugeot has clearly started with a clean page and its designers have risen to the occasion with a sleek, sculpted and bold shape that holds the eye. There are five engines, two of them petrol and three diesel and Peugeot do a good job of mixing their availability through the range of four trims (Active, Allure, GT and GT Line). All come with eight-speed automatic gearbox apart from the 1.6-litre diesel which uses a six-speed manual. Regardless, the Peugeot 508 Sportback is excellent to drive, refined, smooth and responsive. Inside the cabin, Peugeot have really risen to the occasion and the higher spec trims positively overflow with equipment which Peugeot have ensured does not overpower the 508 – everything’s in the right place and fits well together.
