hello Explorer,

the C5 is 90 kg lighter than the equivalent 508.

the wheelbase of the two cars is identical.

the C5 is 2.7 cm taller than the 508.

as for comfort and driving dynamics (i'm biased, of course) but let's put it this way:

in Europe, the 508 is sold with two suspension-types, namely

(1) MacPherson struts with steel springs (those are the cheaper models of 508)

(2) double-wishbone with steel springs (only for the 508 GT).

in Europe, the C5 is sold with two suspension-types, namely

(1) double-wishbone with steel springs (those are the cheaper models of C5)

(2) double-wishbone with Hydractive III+.

in Singapore, the 508 (even the more expensive Allure version) is sold with:
- MacPherson struts with steel springs.

in Singapore, the C5 is sold with
- double-wishbone with Hydractive III+.

in other words, the 508 in Singapore is brought in with the low-end suspension system, which according to Peugeot's OWN pricing-system, is inferior to double-wishbones with steel springs, let alone double-wishbones with Hydractive III+.

:-P
