Despite finishing second to the Skoda Octavia Greenline Estate in our twin test earlier this year, the Peugeot 308 SW still sits fourth on the list of the 10 most economical family cars, as tested by the True MPG team.
Its 57.7mpg result means its day-to-day running costs are highly competitive, and makes the £4772 saving on the list price we've found at an online broker all the more tempting.

CO2 emissions of just 85g/km make it cheap to run as a company car as well as a private buy.
The Active trim on offer here is our favourite. Offering more standard kit than the base Access spec, Access trim adds sat-nav, alloys, dual-zone climate control and rear parking sensors, on top of the air-con, cruise control and Bluetooth offered across the range.
The big boot is perhaps the showpiece of the 308 SW, being wider and longer than the Octavia Estate's, and the 60/40 split rear seats fold completely flat to create an impressive load area.
It might have a big boot, but the rear leg room suffers. Don’t opt for the £500 panoramic glass roof, either, because this will take up precious head room.
Other estate cars are better to drive, with clunky manual and automatic gearboxes, as well as vague steering, marring the 308 SW in particular.
Should I add any options?
In Active trim, you certainly won’t be left wanting because of the generous kit on offer but, at £80, a CD player is worth adding if you're old-school. Paint options range from £250 to £675, so choose wisely or risk chomping into the decent saving on offer.
