Peugeot has unveiled the all-new SW version of the Peugeot 508, bringing a new sense of style to the highly competitive D-segment estate car market.
Rewriting all the design cues in the segment, the all-new Peugeot 508 SW brings the radical styling traits of the 508 saloon, unveiled at the Geneva motor show in March, to the estate car.
Measuring 1.42 m in height and 4.78 m long, the all-new Peugeot 508 SW’s new proportions give it an extremely dynamic body shape, stylised by smooth, flowing lines and a sleek, low roof which will be available in Ireland from early 2019.
Gilles Vidal, Peugeot design director, commented: “The all-new Peugeot 508 SW sets itself apart by its sporty stance and design cues that are completely new for a mainstream car producer.It is a wonderful object of desire that makes a clear statement regarding its ambitions.”
The interior of the all-new Peugeot 508 has been designed to maximise in-car comfort for driver and passengers.
Trim dependent, it features ergonomic, wrap-around seats offering five multi-point massage programmes, premium trim and upholstery materials and a panoramic opening glass roof.
Alongside the latest generation Peugeot i-Cockpit, providing all the information essential for the road ahead, the driver can enjoy the latest in-car optional sound system with a top of the range hi-fi system designed by Focal.
New features for the range, dependent on trim, include Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop & Go function, Lane Keeping Assist and a Night Vision system - a first for the segment.
This system utilises an infra-red camera to detect living beings in front of the vehicle at night time or in low-visibility conditions to maximise safety.
With the aid of the magic flat function, allowing the driver to fold back the two sides of the rear bench seat, the all-new Peugeot 508 SW is never short of space, boasting a total load space capacity of 1780 litres.
Developments in engine efficiency have been driven towards delivering best-in-class Co2 emissions figures, with the new generation PureTech and BlueHDi engines.
In the second half of 2019, the range will be supplemented by an efficient plug-in Hybrid petrol power-train with an extended ZEV range of 50 km (WLTP cycle ).
Prices and specifications for the Irish market will be announced closer to launch.
