All you need to know about towbars for Peugeot 508

Peugeot first introduced the 508 into their range in 2011. The Peugeot 508 is available as a Estate, Hatchback, or Saloon. So you know you are installing the right towbar on your Peugeot 508, we have looked at towing capacity, electrical kits, bumper cuts and more for each variation of Peugeot 508 below.


Peugeot 508 Estate(SW) (not GTi twin exhaust models) Towbars

The Peugeot 508 Estate(SW) (not GTi twin exhaust models) was first released in 2011. To determine which variant of Peugeot 508 you have, check your vehicle logbook. This will ensure you purchase the correct towbar.


Peugeot 508 Estate(SW) (not GTi twin exhaust models) Nose Weight

Estate(SW) (not GTi twin exhaust models) models made between 2011 and 2018 have a minimum nose weight of 75 kg and a maximum nose weight of 85 kg.

What does nose weight mean?

Nose weight is the force on the towball when a caravan or trailer is attached. Every towbar for every vehicle will have a specific nose weight for that vehicle which can differ between the age of the vehicle and the variation of the model. It is crucial that you don’t exceed the nose weight set on the towbar as this is dangerous and can decrease stability when towing.


Peugeot 508 Estate(SW) (not GTi twin exhaust models) Electric Kits

Electrical kits connect the electrics in your Estate(SW) (not GTi twin exhaust models) to the electrics on your trailer, bike rack or caravan so your lights are still visible.

Electric kits for Peugeot 508 Estate(SW) (not GTi twin exhaust models)

We would always recommend having a dedicated electrics kit installed, where possible. This syncs with modern computer functions of your Estate(SW) (not GTi twin exhaust models), like ABS and trailer stability, rather than just basic lighting.

Why is a dedicated kit important? Well, not only does it work with the specific features of your vehicle, but it also protects the warranty of your Estate(SW) (not GTi twin exhaust models) and works with any enhanced safety features you may have.

Of course, you can choose between a dedicated kit or a universal kit, and we do offer both, but a universal electrical kit can affect your manufacturer warranty and you might also need to install a bypass relay.


Peugeot 508 Estate(SW) (not GTi twin exhaust models) Software Update

We will alert you as to whether your Estate(SW) (not GTi twin exhaust models) requires a software update when you choose your towbar electrics kit.

Does my vehicle need a software update?

Sometimes your vehicle may need a software update to accommodate your new dedicated electrical kit. This is so all of the latest computer features in your Estate(SW) (not GTi twin exhaust models) can accurately co-ordinate with your towbar electrics.

Software updates can take place at your local Peugeot dealership when your vehicle is in for service. Or, this can sometimes be updated at your local garage when you arrange towbar fitting through WebFit.


Peugeot 508 Estate(SW) (not GTi twin exhaust models) Bumper Cuts

Estate(SW) (not GTi twin exhaust models) models made between 2011 and 2018 will not require a non-visible bumper cut in order to be fitted.

Does my vehicle need a bumper cut?

Some towbar styles might require a bumper cut in order to be fitted to your vehicle. But, this is improving and newer vehicles are less likely to require a bumper cut due to better towbar designs.


Peugeot 508 Estate(SW) (not GTi twin exhaust models) Towing Capacity

Estate(SW) (not GTi twin exhaust models) models made between 2011 and 2018 have a towing capacity of 1900 kg to 1900 kg.

Be sure to check the EXACT towing capacity of your vehicle before towing on your VIN plate.

What is towing capacity?

Towing capacity is the weight that your Estate(SW) (not GTi twin exhaust models) is capable of towing safely, but it can vary even across the same model of car. It is important to note that the capacity of the towbar and the towing capacity of the Estate(SW) (not GTi twin exhaust models) may differ, so you should always go by the specific towing weight of your vehicle, indicated above.
