Peugeot has brought its striking 508 SW to the Paris motor show in First Edition guise.
The limited-run version is based on the top-spec GT finish, but adds unique 19in two-tone alloy wheels, a gloss black front grille, and choice of Twilight Blue and Amazonite Grey colours. A nappa leather interior is offset with carbonfibre effect trim, while the iConnect cockpit includes Night Vision safety tech and a Focal speaker system.
It will arrive with a choice of 1.6-litre PureTech 225 petrol or 2.0-litre BlueHDi 180 diesel engines. Both models will use an eight-speed automatic transmission. The First Edition is available to order now, with deliveries expected in early 2019.
The most striking-looking Peugeot estate yet was designed to attract image-conscious buyers who may otherwise look to SUVs.
Speaking at Peugeot’s design centre in Vélizy, France, 508 product manager Bernard Hesse said the design of the estate, which is predicted to account for 60-65% of 508 sales, was given as much precedence as its practicability.
