As seen, the dashboard of the new Peugeot 508 RXH features a styling influenced by the exterior design, continuing to express high levels of quality, purity and elegance. It was designed to support a multiplex center console with switchgear equipped with technology that allows users to easily control a host of features.
The purity and simplicity of design and integration is best shown by the HYbrid4 drive mode selection knob and the gear selector lever. Its design combines the traditional gear selector lever and a computer mouse dubbed as the 'manettino.'
The interior of the new Peugeot 508 RXH boasts of white backlighting, especially on the instrument panel, displays as well as on various lighting zones in the cabin. This white backlighting demonstrates the great care in detail and finish implanted on the new 508 RXH.
The car's internal trim and decor have been created in harmony, evoking elegance without ostentation. The use of natural materials and colours, sometimes exclusively, enhance the distinctive character of the 508 RXH. Brushed aluminium and shaded lacquers are used on the dashboard for the first time in this way.
A spectacular treatment in keeping with the electricity supplied by HYbrid4 technology, this decor is specified in tinted shades of copper. This theme, again unprecedented, is subtly continued throughout the interior with matching trim stitching in this copper shade. The exterior is also themed with a copper colour theme through the colouring of the lock tumblers in Calern Brown, a shade exclusive to the Peugeot 508 RXH.
A two-tone upholstery for the cabin is created by combining light-colored Alcantara leather and an laser-printed fabric. Customers may also opt for full leather or half-leather upholstery.
Just like the interior of the new Peugeot 508 RXH, the boot employs high quality materials that reflect the car’s premium-like overall quality. The functional boot floor is adorned by aluminum rails and four solid chrome hooks. An aluminum loading sill guard is also fitted on the new 508 RXH.

The boot could also be divided into compartment by using partition bars -- available as accessories – as attached to the aluminum rails inside the boot. Just by folding the 1/3 - 2/3 split rear bench seat, the vehicle’s loading capacity could be increased.
