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.
Engine: 1.5 BlueHDi 130
A worthy replacement for our former favourite engine in the range, the 1.6 BlueHDi 120. Not only is this new 1.5 more powerful than the unit it replaces, it’s also cleaner and more frugal. With plenty of low-down grunt, there really is no need to step up to the more expensive 2.0 diesel. It’s our pick of the diesels.
