Product Overview

Peugeot 508 SW Mk2 (chassis code R83) is a mid-size station wagon in production from 2018. It is available with a range of inline-4 engines that displaced 1.5 to 2.0 liters.
Compared to the original 508 SW, the Mk2 has a more modern exterior styling and more refined interior.
The official fuel economy rating is exceptionally rosy, though it may cast more doubts on the trustworthiness of the regulators and perhaps the owner's own sanity than it relates to reality.
Drivers who appreciate handling should keep in mind that the Peugeot 508 SW II uses MacPherson front suspension, which doesn't provide the best cornering performance.

Sentiment Score 55%
Reviewers from autocar have found the following***:
No more spacious than the saloon for front-row passengers. Soft-touch materials cover most surfaces, and you have to go hunting for scratchier ones. Leather seats may have been given the nod by German comfort campaigners Aktion Gesunder Rücken, but they place you slightly higher than you’d expect. Rear passengers will appreciate the increased head room, though with the underlying platform unchanged, there’s no extra leg room to be found.

Pros
  • Powerful petrol engine
  • Comfortable to drive
  • Decent infotainment system
Cons
  • Lacklustre ride quality
  • No adaptive dampers

Reviewers from autocar have found the following***:
Electric locks the powertrain into almost-silent operation, and the 508 PSE works serenely well as an EV, albeit with only faint levels of regenerative braking. It's calm and responsive, with the rear motor doing the lion’s share of the work. At low speeds, the car sometimes can’t decide which of its powertrain elements to engage, meaning you get the odd driveline hiccup or shuffle.

Pros
  • Punchy, agile handling
  • Sleek styling
  • Comfortable to drive
Cons
  • Won’t be the quickest car in the class

Reviewers from autocar have found the following***:
For a family with two, perhaps three kids to cart about, the 508 SW more than passes muster. The 1.6-litre four-pot ticks away in an impressively urbane fashion. Sport mode and optional adaptive dampers tighten up the Peugeot’s body control.

Pros
  • Gorgeous interior
  • Comfortable to drive
  • Excellent handling
Cons
  • Lacklustre secondary ride

Reviewers from autocar have found the following***:
There’s something faintly ‘muscular’ about the 508. A subtle flavour of French Mustang, perhaps? From some angles, I’d say so. That fastback rear end at least appears to carry some stars ’n’ stripes inspiration. The variant we have chosen is the GT, one down from the range-topping First Edition.

Pros
  • Decent fuel economy
  • Decent interior ambience
Cons
  • Lack of part-electrification
  • Poor economy

Sentiment Score 67%
Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
Just like the 508 Saloon, it feels plush enough to be a proper flagship for the brand. UK prices and specs have not yet been finalised, but we're told it'll command around a £1,600 premium over the saloon. Up front, a sharply designed dashboard and centre console are home to a crystal-clear 10-inch HD touchscreen underpinned by Peugeot's smart-looking and familiar ‘piano key' style switchgear.

Pros
  • Sleek looks
  • Comfortable to drive
  • Decent standard equipment
Cons
  • Not the most practical

autoexpress[6]

Sentiment Score 78%
Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
The latest Peugeot 508 SW is still a fantastically practical family model. The sloping roofline hides a deceptively versatile body, with a flexible and spacious interior trimmed in some of the finest materials on the market. It's a safe and predictable car to drive, yet a strong equipment list and low running costs count in this model's favour.

Pros
  • Comfortable to drive
  • Fantastic infotainment system
  • Decent fuel economy
Cons
  • Lack of climate controls
  • Short gearbox paddles
