Is Peugeot's most powerful car also the best performance 'family' PHEV on sale in 2021?  

Peugeot’s new 508 PSE PHEV 4WD isn’t just their most powerful production car ever, but also a handsome, luxurious and practical one too. This flagship is officially named the (deep breath) 508 PSE SW Hybrid4 360 e-EAT8 4WD and, in simple terminology, it is a plug-in hybrid 360PS (355hp) family estate with AWD and the ability to combine all power for 0-62 in 5.2 secs, or drive electric only for 26 miles.

In a world where SUVs are getting arguably less useful, crossovers blend into one another and many people still fear a full EV; how many cars can tick the box of driving electric only, having a decent sized boot, feeling frisky like a GTI of old, and not – potentially – getting stolen off your drive (we’re looking at you Audi RS4)?

Jonny tries to explore all of the 508 PSE’s features without getting too bogged down in the £54k price tag, and it seems to be clear that Peugeot’s mojo is returning with more swagger than ever.
