2세대 508 왜건이죠. 세단의 세련된 얼굴에 왜건의 실용성을 더했습니다. 전체적으로 구형보다 잘 팔릴만 한 요소들을 담고 있네요.
왜건이지만 길이가 4.78미터에 높이는 1.42미터로 낮은 편입니다. 스타일을 중시했다고 평가할 수 있겠네요. 풀 LED 헤드램프를 적용했고 왜건으로는 드믈게 프레임리스 도어를 채택했습니다. 이 또한 스타일 지향형이라는 걸 말해줍니다.
그렇다고 왜건의 장점을 아주 포기하진 않았습니다. 2열을 세웠을 때는 530리터를 쓸 수 있고 이를 접으면 최대 1,780리터까지 화물용으로 쓸 수 있으니 낚시나 캠핑용으로도 무난합니다.
실내는 아이콕핏 디자인을 비롯해 세단과 거의 같습니다. 파워트레인도 그런데 플랫폼 교체로 전보다 70kg이나 무게를 준 것이 장점이네요.
엔진과 변속기는 최신 퓨어텍 가솔린과 블루HDi 디젤 엔진에 8단 자동변속기를 결합한 구성입니다. 이전 구매자들에게 좀 미안할 정도로 스펙이 좋네요.
PEUGEOT has unveiled the all-new SW version of the PEUGEOT 508, bringing a new sense of style to the highly competitive D-segment estate car market.
Rewriting all the design cues in the segment, the all-new PEUGEOT 508 SW brings the radical styling traits of the saloon to the estate car. At just 1.42 m in height and 4.78 m long, the all-new PEUGEOT 508 SW’s new proportions give it an extremely dynamic body shape, stylised by smooth, flowing lines and a sleek, low roof.
The striking design of the all-new PEUGEOT 508 SW is enhanced further by exterior details, including frameless doors - a unique estate car feature for a mainstream carmaker, full LED headlights and the vertical visual signature of the opalescent LED daytime running lights.
Gilles Vidal, PEUGEOT Design Director, commented: “The all-new PEUGEOT 508 SW includes all its quality features but sets itself apart by its sporty stance and design cues that are completely new for a mainstream car producer. It is a wonderful object of desire that makes a clear statement regarding its ambitions."
The interior of the all-new PEUGEOT 508 adds to the quality and stylish design of the car whilst also maximising in-car comfort for driver and passengers. It features ergonomic, wrap-around seats offering five multi-point massage programmes, a range of premium and sophisticated trim and upholstery materials and a panoramic opening glass roof.
With the aid of the Magic Flat function, allowing the driver to fold back the two sides of the rear bench seat, the all-new PEUGEOT 508 SW is never short of space, boasting a total load space capacity of 1780 litres. Of this total volume, 530 litres comes from the boot (with luggage cover closed), designed to be simple in shape and entirely practical, with hands-free, powered tailgate.
Pierre-Paul Mattei, PEUGEOT 508 Product Design Director, said: “We wanted to design a unique SW with a very strong personality that was perfectly situated at the heart of its segment. The secret of the rear structure performance in terms of compactness and rigidity is the sensible and practical boot with an extremely sleek design. Similarly, the frameless doors provide the perfect response to accessibility in a vehicle with a very low roof line.”
The driver of the all-new PEUGEOT 508 SW will never be far from the latest in automotive technology, seated comfortably in a desirable, high-tech world imbued with elegance.
Alongside the latest generation PEUGEOT i-Cockpit®, providing all the information essential for the road ahead, the driver can enjoy the latest in-car sound system with a top of the range hi-fi system designed by FOCAL®. With 10 loud-speakers fitted with exclusive FOCAL® technology, this system provides pure, fine sound that is perfectly distributed throughout the all-new PEUGEOT 508 SW.
Technological advances also come into play to provide a wide range of latest-generation driving aids ensuring the all-new PEUGEOT 508 SW meets Euro NCAP criteria.
New features for the range include Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop & Go function, Lane Keeping Assist and a Night Vision system - a first for the segment. This system utilises an infra-red camera to detect living beings in front of the vehicle at night time or in low-visibility conditions to maximise safety.
The all-new PEUGEOT 508 SW is built on the EMP2 platform making it an average of 70kg lighter than the outgoing generation while the new eight-speed EAT8 automatic transmission with electric gear lever and one touch control is an option.
Developments in engine efficiency have been driven towards delivering best-in-class CO2 emissions figures, with the new generation PureTech and BlueHDi engines. The two new petrol options – a 180 S&S EAT8 and 225 S&S EAT8 – are based on the PureTech 1.6-litre engine. Four diesel options are based on the BlueHDi 1.5-litre and 2.0-litre – a 130 S&S BVM6, 130 S&S EAT8, 160 S&S EAT8 and 180 S&S EAT8. Our petrol engines are certified to Euro6d-TEMP and our Diesel engines are certified to Euro6d-TEMP-EVAP.
In ECO mode, when twinned with the EAT8 gearbox, the PureTech engine automatically switches to freewheeling mode. This function, available between 25km/h (15mph) and 130km/h (80mph), eases internal friction in the gearbox and reduces fuel consumption by around 3%.
In the second half of 2019, the range will be supplemented by an efficient Plug-in Hybrid petrol powertrain with an extended ZEV range of 50 km (WLTP cycle). The batteries will be located under the row 2 seats to preserve the roomy boot.
The all-new PEUGEOT 508 SW will be unveiled at the next Paris Motor Show and will be available in the UK from January 2019.
