The 2013 Peugeot 508 RXH demonstrates the modern, enhanced 'top-of-the-range'
vision for Peugeot, and has its world premiere at the Frankfurt Motor Show. The
style of the 508 RXH and its innovative HYbrid4 drive unit provide features that
allow it to combine new levels of driving freedom and pleasure in a form not
seen before in its segment.
After the successful launch of the 508 Saloon
and SW in spring 2011, where they were highly acclaimed for their styling
elegance, on-the-road presence, high levels of build quality and attention to
detail, the 508 RXH further elevates the profile of the entire Peugeot brand
reinforcing its technological and environmental reputation.
508 RXH has a road presence and specific design that immediately places it in
the environment of all road vehicles. Unique, refined, higher and wider, it is
also distinguished by a singular visual identity, characterized by its
distinctive LED daytime running lights that give an impression of having three
vertical 'lion claws' on each side of its 'floating' grille, the combined style
of which is all the more striking.
To reinforce its exclusive character,
the interior of the 508 RXH benefits from special features with distinctive
colors and the use of luxurious materials.
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 with electric front seats, head up
display, 18" wheels, panoramic glass roof, dark-tinted acoustic laminated side
windows, half leather trim, head up display, latest generation audio and
satellite navigation RXH welcomes its occupants with care, refinement and a high
level of comfort features.
Equipped with the 2.0 l HDi FAP
HYbrid4 powertrain, a world first when featured in the 3008 HYbrid4, the
diesel-electric hybrid in the 508 RXH extends driving freedom and pleasure to
traverse all roads. With a maximum power of 200 hp, four-wheel drive and a
maximum torque of 332 lb-ft (450 Nm), the 508 RXH has been designed to adapt to
all uses, in a wide spectrum of conditions. Furthermore, it opens up new
perspectives in the segment, offering a ZEV (100% electric) mode, ideal for
driving in town and capable of delivering, in the Combined Drive Cycle, 67.2 mpg
with CO2 emissions of 109 g/km.
