2019 Peugeot 508 SW

Just a few months after the launch of the radical saloon, Peugeot has unveiled the SW version of New Peugeot 508. A profound change. New Peugeot 508 SW rewrites all the design cues in the highly competitive segment D estate car market; it draws its inspiration from the world of the shooting break. New Peugeot 508 SW’s design is incisive with its low-lying sporty bodyline. It forms the perfect balance between sporty elegance and practicality, providing plenty of passenger space and a large, easy-access boot. It features the latest generation Peugeot i-CockpitĀ® and, with its small turning radius, it will perform well wherever you please – from urban city streets to the open highway. Embedded in the brand’s DNA, New Peugeot 508 SW’s running gear excellence combines remarkable road handing and perfect body movement control. The vehicle, designed to produce top-of-the-range performance, safety and comfort, promises to provide powerful sensations. New Peugeot 508 SW was revealed at the Paris 2018 Motor Show and will be on sale in Europe from January 2019.

As for Peugeot 504, created fifty years ago, the Brand has always designed estate cars based on saloon car body lines. Consequently, New Peugeot 508 SW enjoys all the styling traits of the saloon’s radical design. Its new proportions give it an extremely dynamic body shape. Thanks to the functional roof bars, styled to match the design, the vehicle is almost as low as the saloon – just 1.42 m. This is almost 6 cm less than the previous generation, which makes for optimum aerodynamics whilst ensuring enough headroom in the rear to meet the segment standards. It is 4.78 m long (only 3 cm more than the saloon version and 5 cm less than the outgoing generation); New Peugeot 508 SW reveals smooth, flowing lines, topped by a sleek, low roof.

Frameless doors, a unique estate car feature for a mainstream carmaker, hone and enhance the body line whilst permitting a lower glazed surface area. Gaps and flush fittings have been reduced in size with first-class know-how, the wheels have been adjusted to perfectly fill the wheel arches, the roof antenna has been removed (now silk-screened). The body line is both powerful and is redolent of the high end of the market. Just as for the saloon, the front end is incredibly impressive. With Full LED headlights and the vertical visual signature of the opalescent LED daytime running lights, New Peugeot 508 SW projects a distinct, exclusive identity, highlighted by the famous lion centred on the radiator grill and the 508 logo on the nose of the bonnet.

From the rear, the feel is of power and modernity, with the glossy black horizontal strip framed by three-dimensional Full LED rear lights taken from the saloon, which are illuminated throughout the night and day by adaptive intensity, making the coloured claws constantly visible from the side or full rear view. The chrome twin exhaust tailpipe seats the vehicle and further enhances the sporty design. Boot access is via a practical tailgate (that can be powered and hands-free). The boot sill is low and wide (6 cm lower than the saloon and only 63.5 cm from the ground, 2.4 cm wider). The quick-draw baggage cover provides an immediate view of the entire boot, which has a capacity (with luggage cover closed) of 530 litres. It is designed to be simple in shape and entirely usable. The boot under-baggage cover capacity is very close to that of the outgoing vehicle (560 litres).

New Peugeot 508 SW enjoys the new generation PureTech and BlueHDi engines (with extended SCR technology) as presented on the saloon. There are two new petrol options developed on the basis of the PureTech 1.6L engine:
PureTech 180 S&S EAT8,
PureTech 225 S&S EAT8.

Four Diesel options are available based on the BlueHDi 1.5L and 2.0L engines:
BlueHDi 130 S&S BVM6,
BlueHDi 130 S&S EAT8,
BlueHDi 160 S&S EAT8,
BlueHDi 180 S&S EAT8.
All these engines have already been certified to Euro6.d temp standards, in anticipation of the Euro 6 provisions applicable from January 2020, specifically with regard to nitrogen oxide emissions. The CO2 values are Best in Class; they take into account new technical provisions of the WLTP procedure, which seeks to harmonise test-approved consumption levels and customer-usage consumption levels.

In ECO mode, the Pure Tech engine family mated with the EAT8 automatic gearbox switches automatically to freewheeling mode. This function is available from 25 to 130 km/h, when conditions permit. It is triggered if no a foot-on-pedal signal is detected; it is totally transparent for the driver. It eases internal friction in the gearbox and reduces fuel consumption by around 3%. In the second half of 2019, the range will be supplemented by an efficient Plug-in Hybrid petrol powertrain with an extended ZEV range of 50 km (WLTP cycle). The batteries will be located under the row 2 seats to preserve the roomy boot. Like the saloon, New Peugeot 508 SW will be manufactured at the Mulhouse plant and as from launch will bear the “Origine France Garantie” certifying that it is made in France.
