    Callum FreebairnCallum Freebairn24 ימים לפני
  • After years, Peugeot still refuses to change the fuse box location together with the different drive side setup. RHD models will always have the glove compartment box smaller due to Peugeot stubbornness to change.

  • A thought that just popped into my head: more lhd-508s will be sold than rhd. So is it crazy to think that the fuse box is always on the left, because that's usually where the steering wheel is? Maybe they've put it in the glove box for the rhd models because it's a real hassle to wire everything to the other side. Don't know if is true lol

  • Why can't they make an awd version with 400+hp. Pls peugeot don't fool people by the looks. Give it some performance!

    • now you have the answer for that. Now they are going to launch the new 508 sw pse with 360 hp and 530 nm in 2021.

  • Whoever decided to use that steering wheel with the display must be fired by now. I love the display but i have to put the steering wheel down my lap in our e208 to be able to read the speed. I hope the PSE does not have the same shitty solution.... might be too late for changes now though. The Skoda might be more practical but god they are are butt ugly compared to the 508.... that thing is a beauty both externally and internally. (besides the steering wheel...) The fuel cap issue is because it is a pressurized tank. The 330e is exactly the same. You cant open it externally.

  • The Pug looks better than the bmw, but that doesn't say much! Go for the VW Passat hybrid. It looks like its got more room, better performance figures, looks far better than the bmw (but what doesn't) & its less expensive! Oh, you don't have to pay extra for it to charge quicker! Its a no-brainer in my opinion. All the best...............

  • the fuse box is under the wheel in "frensh" versions , only exception for the UK because you drive at the wrong side of the road XD (obviously it's due to the manifacturing , they somehow don't want to build a 100% right side car for the UK so they kept the fuse box at the left side XD)

  • Phev vehicles tend to have special fuel tank as petrol can go "off" and most people would try to use electric to go around in towns so a petrol can last long time. Btw, 330e operates the same- you can open the charger cap when the doors are unlocked but fuel cap you need to press on the button under the steering wheel to release it
