The Peugeot 308 SW has some efficient engines and a large boot, but it’s disappointing to drive and rear space is tightget the best price
Active trim is the cheapest way into a 308 SW. It comes as standard with 16in alloy wheels, climate control, rear parking sensors, a leather steering wheel, automatic lights and wipers, a 9.7in colour touchscreen with sat-nav (plus MirrorLink, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone mirroring) and driver adjustable lumbar support. It’s our pick.
