New PEUGEOT 508 SW – 2018-2019
Breaking the codes
Just a few months after the launch of the radical saloon, PEUGEOT is now unveiling 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 brakes. 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-Cockpit® 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.
Tip-top safety thanks to an impressive array of driving aid technology
New PEUGEOT 508 SW offers a wide range of latest-generation driving aids that notably meet EuroNCAP criteria, which are ever more demanding. The new features compared to the rest of the PEUGEOT range are:
a Night Vision system, a first for the segment. The system utilises an infra-red camera to detect living beings in front of the vehicle at night time or in low-visibility conditions. The system ensures detection up to a 200 m range, beyond the headlights’ scope, with central display of the infra-red vision in the digital head-up display unit, in the driver’s field of vision to maximise safety.
Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop & Go function (with the EAT8 automatic gearbox) with an adjustable inter-vehicle distance instruction. When in lane, vehicle restarting is automatic following a stop of more than 3 seconds. Otherwise, the function is re-initiated by depressing the accelerator pedal or on the end of the steering wheel control. The function is available from 0 km/h,
Lane Keeping Assist, with the choice of lane positioning made by the driver (associated with ACC Stop & Go),
Full Park Assist with the Flankguard perimeter feature (only with EAT8 automatic gearbox). The system automatically manages the direction, acceleration and braking to enter and leave a parking space,
Full LED headlights with EVS (static cornering lighting),
Permanent ARS (adaptive rear light system).
The latest Active Safety Brake system (detects pedestrians and cyclists by day and by night from 5km/h up to 140 km/h) and warns of a collision risk,
Active Lane Keeping Assist (including roadsides) with course correction as from 65 km/h,
Driver Attention alert, to detect the driver’s attention during protracted periods of driving and at speeds above 65 km/h based on analysis of steering wheel micro-movements,
Automatic High Beam assist,
Speed limit recognition and recommendation,
Extended traffic sign recognition (Stop, prohibited direction),
Active Blind Spot Monitoring System (with course correction).This function is available from 12km/h.
In every area from vehicle architecture, space breakdown, carefully controlled dimensions, weight reduction, aerodynamics to the power trains, no effort has been spared to deliver intense driving sensations and to achieve best-in-class CO2 emissions values.
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,
