The 508 Sportswagon looks nice and sleek, with an elongated and sophisticated profile. There’s something about the length that makes it look modern and it’s much more refined than its SUV cousins, which can be a bit bulky and square. This is a much nicer shape.
Inside things are super slick, with nappa leather seats that have an interesting pattern, which looks premium. The seats are also hugely comfortable.
Last week I was testing a really uncomfortable car and had to drive it for a full two hours, and by the end of it, my back and legs were hurting, but then I got to swap into this car and I could feel the back pain literally melting away, which is a powerful indication of how good these pews are. The front seats are also power adjustable and heated.
The centre console looks fabulous, with a high-gloss finish and piano keys under the 12.3inch multimedia screen. They’re a functional solution to finding what you need on the screen without having to search hard for it.
The star of the show has to be the steering wheel, which is small, really easy to manipulate and almost octagonal in shape, with a flat bottom and top. You can rest your hands on the corner panels on each side and it’s finished in a soft, perforated leather. It has to be one of the best steering wheels going around. In front of the wheel is a digital dash, which shows your speed in large numbers, which is exactly what you need.
