You can order one as we speak

Peugeot is using Paris as catwalk for a limited-run of its 508 SW dubbed, unsurprisingly, First Edition.

So, what’s it all about, you might ask? Peugeot explains:

“The exclusive all-new PEUGEOT 508 SW First Edition will come with unique stylistic attributes, including gloss black grille surround and 19” ‘Augusta’ diamond cut two-tone alloy wheels, with tinted varnish finish. It will be available in two colours for UK buyers: Twilight Blue and Amazonite Grey.

Further enhancing its dynamic character, the all-new PEUGEOT 508 SW First Edition features a mistral black roof lining, blue ambient mood lighting, aluminium pedals and doorsills complete with model inscription. For further exclusivity, the boot floor is lined with a Zebrano wood finish, with anti-slip bars.”

So, there’s that. In addition, we’re told that the Peugeot 508 SW can be equipped with either a 1.6-liter PureTech petrol engine making 225 PS mated to an eight-speed automatic gearbox or a diesel unit represented by the 2-liter, 180 PS BlueHDi powerplant married to the same eight-speed gearbox. According to Peugeot, both engines are WLTP-approved.


Cabin-wise, the fancier 508 SW receives carbon effect trim (aka fake carbon fiber) and “fine grade” Nappa leather black or red inserts and double stitching.
