2019 Peugeot 508 SW estate: Pricing and specs revealed
Pricing and specifications for the all-new Peugeot 508 SW has been announced, with the versatile estate model starting from £26,845.
Two petrol and four diesel engines will be available across the range in various states of tune, based on the 1.6-litre PureTech, as well as the 1.5-litre and 2.0-litre BlueHDi engines.
Later in the year a 225hp PHEV version will be available, providing power to the front wheels via 1.6-litre PureTech 180 engine and a 110hp electric motor.
Bringing a sharp design, instinctive driving experience, uncompromising quality and class-leading levels of technology to the estate sector, four trims will be available from launch: Active, Allure, GT Line, and GT.
Active trim (£26,845) features 17-inch alloy wheels as standard, alongside Peugeot Connected 3D Navigation with live updates, electric driver’s seat-base and lumbar adjustment, automatic headlights and DAB radio as standard.
In Allure trim (and standard on all petrol versions), Active Suspension is offered plus Active Blind Spot Detection. Peugeot Open and Go (keyless entry and push button start) also features. Inside, there is a 10-inch HD touch screen, and a 180-degree colour reversing camera. Prices start from £28,145.
Starting from £29,895, the GT Line adds self-levelling full LED headlights, and also comes with Peugeot i-Cockpit Amplify which allows customers to change the interior lighting balance as well as the engine note through active speaker technology.
The GT model (£38,020) features Peugeot’s Drive Assist Pack Plus, with Adaptive Cruise Control and Lane Positioning Assist. Also included is a FOCAL premium HiFi speaker system, Nappa Mistral full grain leather seat trim and 19-inch ‘Augusta’ diamond-cut two-tone alloy wheels.
From the front of the car to the B-pillar, the SW is essentially the same car as the Fastback. Being an estate, of course, it doesn’t get quite the same rakish roofline the Fastback does, but courtesy of frameless doors and sweeping C-pillars, it has to be among the best-looking cars in this segment. It carries over the same striking tail lights as the Fastback, too.
Peugeot predicts the estate will account for more than 60% of total 508 sales thanks to its added practicality, with the 530-litre boot increasing to 1,780 litres with the rear seats folded flat.
David Peel, Managing Director of Peugeot UK, said: “The all-new 508 SW will bring a unique combination of style and driving dynamics to the D-segment estate sector. We’re already seeing the 508 Fastback challenge the norm in the saloon sector, and we have the same high expectations for the 508 SW.”
