Peugeot has released full details on available variants and powertrains worldwide for the facelifted Peugeot 508 range, which includes the 508 SW estate, 508 RXH ‘ruggedised’ estate and 508 HYbrid4 sedan. We also have a mega gallery of pics for your viewing pleasure.

But first, dimensions, weights and boot volumes. The 508 sedan is 4,830 mm long and 1,456 mm tall, weighs between 1,390 and 1,540 kg, and can hold 515 litres (HYbrid4 sedan 347 litres) in its boot. The 508 SW is one millimetre shorter and 31 mm taller, weighs 1,410-1,560 kg and has a 550 litre boot volume.

Compared to the SW, the 508 RXH is another millimetre shorter. Naturally, it’s the tallest bodystyle, standing at 1,525 mm. It weighs 1,717-1,770 kg, and can hold 550 litres (HYbrid4 RXH 400 litres) in its boot. All variants share the same 2,817 mm wheelbase and 2,068 mm width (including wing mirrors).

A range of petrol, diesel and HYbrid4 powertrains are available. The petrol engines are a VTi 120, THP 156 “World” and the new Euro 6-compliant THP 165 S&S, all 1.6 litre units.

Mated to either a six-speed manual or new EAT6 six-speed auto, the new THP 165 replaces the THP 156 in Europe, but judging by the latter’s “World” moniker and the fact that it’s of Euro 4 standard, the old engine, connected exclusively to an AT6 six-speed auto, could soldier on in certain world markets.

The 1.6 THP 165 S&S develops 165 hp at 6,000 rpm and 240 Nm of torque at 1,400 rpm. Combined fuel consumption and CO2 emissions are a claimed 5.8 litres per 100 km and 134 grams per km respectively.

The oil burners comprise a 115 hp 1.6 e-HDi, a 2.0 HDi in 140 hp and 160 hp states of tune, a 200 hp 2.2 HDi and a new Euro 6-compliant 2.0 BlueHDi in 150 hp (six-speed manual only) and 180 hp (EAT6 six-speed auto only) states of tune.

The 2.0 BlueHDi 150 produces 150 hp at 4,000 rpm and 370 Nm at 2,000 rpm, while the higher 180 tune does 180 hp at 3,750 rpm and 400 Nm at 2,000 rpm. The former is good for a combined fuel consumption of 4.2 litres per 100 km and CO2 emissions of 109 grams per km, and for the 180, marginally higher at 4.4 litres per 100 km and 116 grams of CO2 per km.

The familiar HYbrid4 powertrain, combining a 163 hp/300 Nm 2.0 HDi FAP diesel engine (powering the front wheels), a 37 hp/200 Nm electric motor (powering the rear wheels) and a six-speed ETG6 single-clutch automated gearbox, is offered with sedan and RXH bodystyles. The RXH is also available with a 2.0 BlueHDi 180/EAT6 six-speed auto engine and gearbox combo.
