2020 Peugeot 508 SW Redesign, Specs & Changes
The 2020 Peugeot 508 SW is an innovative car, with volumes and unusual design. A car that points to the premium range and has been developed from the sedan.
The New Peugeot 508 SW Facelift breaks into the D segment, which in Europe still represents a market of 1,400,000 vehicles overall. For a decade, the percentage of Station Wagon dominates the segment, despite other types of bodywork such as SUVs are conquering an increasingly important slice of the market. Within this segment, the manufacturers’ proposals are essentially divided into two types: a traditional one with a large volume and a premium one that combines the convenience of a Station Wagon with a much more dynamic and personal design.
In this context, the choice of Peugeot is clear: with the 508 Sport Wagon it wants to create an object that subverts traditional stylistic codes in favor of a more athletic and modern style, up to now, of premium brands and top-of-the-range manufacturers. these are the words of Gilles Vidal, Director of Design Peugeot: “Designed and designed at the same time as the sedan, the 2020 Peugeot 508 Sport wagon incorporates all the features, stands out for its sporty posture and innovative stylistic solutions that are completely new to a manufacturer of generalist car. It is an extraordinary object of desire that clearly states its ambitions. ”

Starting from the sedan body, the Peugeot has developed the station, which maintains its stylistic features and innovative design. Thanks to the new proportions of the volumes, the profile is extremely dynamic. 4.78 m long (only +3 cm of the sedan and -5 cm compared to the previous generation), the New Peugeot 508 SW is characterized by a profile with taut and fluid lines, dominated by a low and sloping pavilion line. The height is only 2 cm higher than that of the sedan and 6 cm less than the previous generation car.

The doors have no window frames and help to make the car even more premium, which in a certain sense winks at the coupes. The roof antenna has also been eliminated. Frontally the car is almost the same as the sedan: we find Full LED projectors and the “508” logo on the tip of the bonnet. Access to the boot is via a practical tailgate (which can be motorized and with the keyless entry), which enhances the features that a modern station wagon must have.
The boot threshold is low and wide. The quick-fit retractable curtain cover provides immediate visibility of the entire load compartment. The latter, which has a capacity under the curtain of 530 liters, reveals a regular shape and is completely exploitable.
