All shook up – why the Peugeot 508 RXH isn’t as comfortable as it looks…

My 508 has got the jitters. There’s a stretch of road I use near Stow-on-the-Wold to test every car I drive and the Peugeot estate just doesn’t like it at all.

There is also rather too much wallowing on the corners – it lacks the composure of a BMW 3 Series touring, against which it is firmly pitched at £30,000.

Sure, the RXH has more room on the inside but really I’d enjoy a better drivers car instead – it’s just rather dull, even with the ‘sport’ button engaged.

Tomorrow is press day for the Silverstone Classic event. The 60-mile route to the circuit will expose any issues the Peugeot hasn’t revealed this far…
