Purchasing decisions are the hardest of all, especially when there’s a ton of factors to take into consideration, and of course, if you’re investing an arm and a leg into it. So, buying a new car was no easy task for me. I need something that is highly durable; since I hit the road a lot, thus, safe. Power also goes without saying, and definitely, comfort and sleek design also matter. Most importantly, it needs to be affordable and within budget; with the crazy prices that are being thrown around nowadays, cars come with a hefty price tag.
Luckily, with all the speculations about the new prices of French cars, I might not have to pay a fortune after all.
After a lot of digging up and comparisons between brands, I started seriously considering Peugeot! And after more extensive research, I settled for the new Peugeot 508. To make this as fruitful as it to was to me to others, I decided to share a breakdown of the important factors that eased the decision process.
With 165 HP and 1.6L THP, and an acceleration from 0-100km in 8.7s, this car is hands down a powerhouse!
