More about the Peugeot 508
The advance in safety measures and parking aids really takes the stress away from the driver. By opting for the vehicle specific wiring this will allow the vehicle to tow effectively without comprising the 508’s modern driving experience. The vehicle specific wiring perfectly complements the vehicle’s technology, making simple tasks such as parking your car easier.
Having dedicated wiring fitted means you no longer hear the constant beeping of reverse sensors when parking, as this can be easily muted with a simple diagnostic update completed at the time of fitment. It will also enable all the tow features that are available for your vehicle, however these features are specific to each model, and it is always best to check which are applicable by looking in the vehicle’s logbook.
When you are towing at night or in low visibility conditions the night vision infrared camera system will kick in and detect the presence of any pedestrians or animals in front of the vehicle beyond the head lights. This technology will make manoeuvring your vehicle whilst towing a lot safer.
Another new feature to the 508 is the Visio Park 1, this allows the driver to safely park into a space without the worry of hitting an obstacle. The 360-view camera highlights any obstacles when reversing into a space, the park assist option is perfect for bay and parallel parking, making parking when towing a whole lot easier.
The family sized boot space (447 litres) is perfect for packing the family in and heading away on a staycation with the bikes, or even hitching up a caravan.
Which Towbar is best for my Peugeot 508?
We offer all types of towbars for the new Peugeot 508, ranging from the fixed flange towbar to the detachable swan neck towbar. Depending on your towing needs each type of towbar has its advantages and disadvantages, however we always strongly advise going for a detachable towbar if you have reversing sensors, as the neck of the towbar can be removed after towing to avoid any interference. If you are uncertain on which style of towbar is appropriate for your towing needs, please contact our office for further technical support.
Depending on the model an invisible bumper cut will be made to the vehicles lower bumper skirt in order to have a towbar fitted. However please do check with our sales team who will be able to advise you on the exact bumper cut dimensions for your vehicle.
