D estate car 508 SW combines remarkable road handing and perfect body movement control
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. New Peugeot 508 SW will be revealed at the Paris 2018 Motor Show and will be on sale in Europe from January 2019.
For the last ten years, estate cars have made up the majority of this segment, despite the constant increase in new market offerings and body-lines, notably SUVs. In Europe, one vehicle out of every three sold in segment D is an estate car. Thanks to the functional roof bars, styled to match the design, the vehicle is almost as low as the saloon - just 1.42 m. This is almost 6 cm less than the previous generation, which makes for optimum aerodynamics whilst ensuring enough headroom in the rear to meet the segment standards.
It is 4.78 m long (only 3 cm more than the saloon version and 5 cm less than the outgoing generation); New Peugeot 508 SW reveals smooth, flowing lines, topped by a sleek, low roof. Frameless doors, a unique estate car feature for a mainstream carmaker, hone and enhance the body line whilst permitting a lower glazed surface area. With Full LED headlights and the vertical visual signature of the opalescent LED daytime running lights, New Peugeot 508 SW projects a distinct, exclusive identity. ■
