Next comes the GT Line, with a £29,895 ($37,744/€33,783) MSRP and extra gear such as self-levelling LED headlights, 3D signature taillights, ambient lighting and active speaker technology that enhances the sound of the engine through the audio system, while the GT is priced from £38,020 ($48,002/€42,965) and gets Adaptive Cruise Control and Lane Positioning Assist as part of the Driver Assist Pack Plus, Nappa Mistral leather seats, Focal sound system and 19-inch two-tone wheels.

If you want the 508 SW First Edition, then you’ll have to hurry up and make a deposit because only 75 units are allocated for Britain. They carry a sticker price of £40,819 ($51,536/€46,128) and add the (segment-first) Night Vision tech, which can spot pedestrians and animals up to 200 meters (656 feet) ahead of the headlights and alert the driver via the 12.3-inch instrument display panel, plus the Visio Park 3, with a 360-degree camera system and automated parking assistance.

The 2019 508 SW is available with a 1.6-liter PureTech turbo four, petrol in 178 HP (180 PS) or 222 HP (225 PS), that is mated to an eight-speed auto transmission. Peugeot hasn’t given up on diesels and is offering its mid-size estate with two units – an 128 HP (130 PS) 1.5-liter that, in the base Active trim, is the sole version available with a six-speed manual, and a BlueHDi 2.0-liter with 158 HP (160 PS) or 178 HP (180 PS), both of which are offered exclusively with the eight-speed auto. All engines are Euro6.d-temp compliant and, according to Peugeot, have “best in class” CO2 emissions that range from 101 to 132 g/km.

 

  • “If you want the 508 SW First Edition, then you’ll have to hurry up…” Really? as nice as this is, nearly £41,000 for a Pug in the UK is just plain crazy. I’d be amazed if they manage to sell all 75 at that price. Methinks there’s little ‘rush’.

    • Vince

      well it’s fully optionned at that price, and an equivalent passat is at around 10k€ more …

  • StrangerGP

    They’re too optimistic with the pricing. 508 looks cool but it can’t compete in terms of interior space with a Passat or an Insignia and it’s not a premium brand car either.
