Peugeot 508 SW First Edition Revealed With More Style And Goodies
2 October 2018 - Motor1
The range-topping version of Peugeot's stylish new wagon comes bundled with a pair of high-end headphones.
The reason why we're getting a feeling of déjà vu is because the 508 liftback also received a First Edition with all the bells and whistles earlier this year. Now, time has come for the more practical wagon to spawn a fully loaded limited edition based on the GT trim and offered with Dark Blue, Pearly White and Amazonite Grey body paints.
Riding on two-tone 19-inch alloy wheels, the new Peugeot 508 SW in First Edition guise stands out thanks to its glossy black front grille surround and a choice between red and black for the leather upholstery. It also has a lovely wood trim and the compact steering wheel bathed in leather. Being the flagship version of the 508 range, it has pretty much all the kit you could ever want – from the full LED ambient lighting to a configurable head-up display.
Not only that, but Peugeot has also installed a 10-inch touchscreen for the infotainment system and an electric tailgate. Open the trunk and there's wood flooring exclusive to this version. To protect the floor from scratches, the 508 SW First Edition comes bundled with a velvet upholstery with flaps also covering the bumper and the trunk sill.
The amount of kit Peugeot has managed to cram inside the upscale midsize wagon is quite impressive for a mainstream brand, with the model being fitted with night vision and wireless charging for your smartphone. There's also 3D navigation with voice recognition and TomTom live services providing real-time traffic details and other useful info. To make it worth your while, the French are selling the car with a wireless headset from Focal to complement the vehicle's sound system developed by the same brand.
Peugeot will begin sales of the 508 SW First Edition online today in France while buyers from ten other European countries will be able to reserve one also starting today.
