The new Peugeot 508 SW

The new Peugeot 508 SW estate model will go on sale in Ireland from €34,110 plus delivery related charges for the Active 1.5 BlueHDi diesel 130bhp 6-speed manual version. Order books are now open and deliveries to the first customers in Ireland will begin from 1st July onwards.

The new 508 SW has the same front design as the Peugeot 508 fastback, and adds a low-slung, estate bodyline. It has a large, easy-access boot, offering a total load space from 530 litres with the luggage cover closed, and up to 1780 litres thanks to Magic Flat rear seats.

In Ireland the new Peugeot 508 SW is available in Active, Allure, GT Line and GT trims.

Fitted with aluminium roof rails and boot luggage rails with safety net, the 508 SW also features the latest generation of Peugeot’s innovative i-Cockpit® with a configurable 12.3-inch head-up digital instrument panel, either a ten-inch or eight-inch capacitive touchscreen dependent on trim, and a compact multi-function steering wheel as standard for maximum driver control.

A host of safety features also come as standard, including Emergency Brake Assist and Active Lane Keeping Assistance with edge detection. MirrorLink® with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto® is also included as standard in every model.

Two new petrol options and four diesel options, based on the 1.6-litre PureTech, 1.5-litre BlueHDi and 2.0-litre BlueHDi engines, are on offer.

A 225bhp plug-in hybrid (PHEV) version, providing power to the front wheels using a 1.6-litre PureTech petrol 180bhp engine and a 110bhp electric motor, is due in Ireland at the end of 2019. With a ZEV range of 50km (WLTP), the batteries will be located under the row 2 seats to preserve the roomy boot.
