For The 308 SW has a large boot and lots of practical touches. Its engines are economical and have low CO2 emissions, so running costs are low.
Against Most rivals offer more rear-seat space and the touch-screen system is too fiddly.
What Car? says
The Peugeot 308 SW is a good load-lugger, and most versions are cheap to run, but it can’t match the class best for cabin space.

Target Price team says:
If you’re a low-mileage driver and don’t regularly carry heavy loads, the high-powered 1.2-litre petrol engine is a good bet. It’s quiet and pretty punchy, and the petrol models are a lot cheaper to buy than the diesels.
Our favourite engine is the 1.6-litre Blue HDi diesel, though. It pulls well from low revs and remains smooth and quiet no matter how hard you work it. It also doesn’t use much fuel and its low CO2 emissions help keep your tax bills down.
Avoid the auto-only Blue HDi 180 GT version, which isn’t good enough to drive to justify its high price.
We’d go for Active trim, which offers the best blend of equipment and price. It comes with everything you’re likely to need, including dual-zone climate control, sat-nav and rear parking sensors.
