Peugeot’s Stylish 508 SW Shows Family Estates Are Alive And Kicking (In Europe)

If you’re in the market for a D-segment wagon, the likes of the VW Passat Variant, Opel Insignia Sports Tourer or the Skoda Superb Combi are among the most popular choices.

Now, however there’s a new contender, courtesy of Peugeot. It’s the all-new 508 sedan’s more practical but equally stylish sibling, the SW, which stands for Sport Wagon.

The 508 SW is just 3 cm (1.18”) longer than the sedan, but thanks to its longer roof offers more cargo space, at 530 liters (18.7 cu.ft) – and that’s with the luggage cover closed. If you fold the rear seats down, you’ll end up with a monster 1,780 liters (63 cu.ft) – nearly as much as you’d have in a Volkswagen Touareg.

Another positive is the headroom for rear-seat passengers. An in-depth review of the 508 sedan showed that the sedan isn’t very generous with taller individuals sitting in the back. The SW version not only fixes that, but you can also tilt the seat back by 27 degrees.

Potential customers who would rather not wait too long can already order the First Edition model that’s based on the flagship 508 SW GT spec starting today, October 2nd.

Pricing has not been announced, but we suspect it won’t come too cheap seen as how it has bespoke 19-inch two-tone alloys, ambient lighting, carbon effect trim, fine grade Nappa leather, Night Vision, a 10-inch HD capacitive touchscreen display and a high-fidelity Focal sound system with wireless headphones.

As for the versions that made their way to the automaker’s stand at the 2018 Paris Motor Show, they range from the Allure to the GT Line, and even the flagship GT. There’s also a 508 SW Hybrid that is powered by a 1.6-liter PureTech petrol unit and an 80 kW electric motor for a total of 225 PS (222 HP). Meanwhile, its 11.8 kWh battery is said to offer an electric-only range of 40 km (25 miles).
