CLOSE UP review: Peugeot 508SW Wagon

In this blog entry, I'm writing about the Peugeot 508 SW.  This is a Handsome well equipped D-segment wagon priced to sell at RM179,888 for 1.6 THP Petrol and RM209,888 for 2.2 HDI FAP Diesel which also known as 508SW GT.

Common features:  Panoramic Glass roof (FIXED) with Auto blind, Power rear boot, Leather seats, Colour HUD, ASM - Available Space Measurement Aid.

Also, CLASS LEADING 2817mm wheelbase wiith HUGE 660 litres boot space expandable to 1865 litres with rear seats flat-folded, 6 speed Tiptronic gearbox with Paddle shifter, Automatic Quad zone Climate control air cond, Auto lights and Auto wipers.  Electric Parking Brake. 

It also comes with STATE OF THE ART, WORLD-in-Peugeot Sound system with Navigation, Bluetooth, Arkamys audio processing system and JBL HI-FI 10 speakers system with 500W Subwoofer.

Safety department:  6 Airbags, ABS+EBD+EBA+ASR+HA+Stability Control = Advanced Stability Management.  2x ISOFIX Child-seats anchor points.  LED-DRLs with Bi-Xenon headlights with washers and Auto levelling and Follow me home feature.  Front and rear fog lights.  5-stars EURO NCAP tested 2011.

Difference between 508SW 1.6THP (156hp@6000rpm/240Nm@1400-3000rpm torque) and 508SW GT (204hp/450Nm@1600-2500rpm) torque other than the Engines.

18" wheels and tyres (Petrol) vs 19" wheels and tyres on diesel.  Black leather seats vs Brown nappa leather seats,  Also, 1000km+ per 70 litres fuel tank for diesel VS 660km per full tank on Petrol.

Performance wise, the Petrol's good for 220km/h and 0-100km/h in 9.2 seconds while the Diesel HDI's much better at 230km/h electronically limited and 0-100km/h in 8.4 seconds.

Colour Choices:  Aluminium, Bourrasque Boue, Haria Grey and Pearl White for 1.6THP Petrol.  Only, Haria Grey and Pearl White for 508SW GT 2.2HDI.

DRIVE TIME:  As I'm typing this, I've only driven the 1.6THP Petrol variant.  I've tried my best, but I can't seem to get hold of Peugeot 508SW GT 2.2HDI for test drive.  Itching to test the MEGA 450Nm torque at 1600-2500rpm!

How's the 1.6THP?  Same as the Sedan, except it handles slightly better.  Power delivery's very smooth and soundproofing's EXCELLENT.  Typical French car ride and handling which's INCREDIBLE with high level of comfort and refinement.  But, like most High Pressure Turbo, there's slight turbo lag during kickdown.

Lastly, this baby comes with 5 years UNLIMITED MILEAGE Warranty with 24 hrs Peugeot Assistance and Peugeot Privilege.

Rating: 8/10 for 508SW 1.6THP and 9/10 for 508 SW GT 2.2HDI.

There's a saying a picture's worth 1000 words.  Here are the photos.
