Peugeot unveils 508 SW

At just 1.42 m in height and 4.78 m long, the 508 SW’s new proportions give it an 'extremely dynamic body shape, stylised by smooth, flowing lines and a sleek, low roof,' according to Peugeot....

Introduction

Carrying the same swoopy styling cues as the hatchback, the Peugeot 508 SW estate will cut a sleek shape on the road with LED headlights, frameless doors and a slung back roofline. The front is dominated by a huge grille that's flanked by equally large air intakes. All versions will sit close to the road, some 60mm lower than the old SW.

Boot space should be more practical than the outgoing model: the 508 SW now provides 530 litres of boot space with the luggage cover closed and all three rear seats can be folded individually to accommodate passengers and bulky items. Maximum storage will peak at a van-like 1780 litres and all models get a powered tailgate as standard, with a hands-free function that’ll open the boot with a kick of the foot under the rear bumper.  

The engine range includes petrol, diesel and plug-in hybrid powertrains. The two petrol options – a 180PS S&S EAT8 and 225PS S&S EAT8 – are based on the PureTech 1.6-litre engine and use an eight-speed automatic gearbox as standard. There are no plans to offer the petrol with a manual transmission.

The four diesels are based on the BlueHDi 1.5-litre and 2.0-litre engines, with outputs spanning 130PS, 160PS and 180PS. Most diesels will be paired with the eight-speed auto, while the 130PS unit gets a six-speed manual as standard. Peugeot hasn't released any CO2 or fuel economy figures for any of the petrols or diesels. 

Peugeot will add a plug-in hybrid petrol. The system will combine the 1.6-litre petrol with an electric motor and battery pack and provide low trailpipe emissions and an all-electric range of 31 miles. Boot space will be the same as the standard 508 SW though, with the battery pack placed under the second row of seats. 

Tech will play a big role in the new 508, with the usual mix of adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assist and blind spot monitoring. A night vision camera will also be available, using an infrared camera to detect pedestrians and cyclists at night and applying the brakes automatically should they venture in front of the car.

Peugeot’s digital i-Cockpit system will be fitted as standard, replacing the traditional instrument binnacle with a 12.3-inch screen that can be customised with maps, route directions and in-car data. A 10-inch colour screen will dominate the minimalist dashboard and the layout will mirror the 3008 with neat aircraft-styled switches providing useful shortcuts to all of the touchscreen controls.
