For The Peugeot 308 SW has a big boot, and it’s even available with seven seats as an option. The cabin quality is good, and the car comes with a wide range of proven engines.
Against It’s not great as a people carrier because there's not enough space in seven-seat mode, especially in the third row. It's not as good to drive as some rival estates.
The Peugeot 308 SW is a good-looking estate car with a big, flexible boot and very reasonable running costs. It doesn’t drive as well as some estate car rivals that cost less, though.

The more you spend on your Peugeot 308 SW, the more it becomes like a mini-MPV. Although the base Access and SR trims come with a conventional 60/40-split centre row of seats, Active and Allure models have individual seats in the second row. Another two seats, that can be bolted into the boot floor, are available as an option.
We reckon Active and SR trim are the sweet points in the range – Access cars are a little too basic, Allure cars are a little too expensive.
As with the 308 hatchback, the SW works best with the 110bhp 1.6-litre diesel engine. It’s smooth, flexible and gives really impressive economy.
One of the best versions of this car, and worth the extra it costs to upgrade from Access trim.
