The Peugeot 508 SW is certainly more practical than the 508 saloon, with a boot capacity that's slightly up on the Audi A4 Avant and BMW 3 Series Touring. However, while the 508 SW has an attractive interior and comes well equipped, it doesn't drive as well as those premium offerings and isn't as spacious or comfortable as cheaper estates from the likes of Skoda. It isn't a bad choice if you're swayed by the looks, but there are plenty of estates that are easier to recommend.
The trimSee full equipment
GT takes all the kit of Allure Premium trim then adds 18in alloy wheels, black door mirrors and window surrounds, LED headlights, a boot net and alloy pedals. As most of the stuff just makes it look a bit sportier, we wouldn’t bother.
The engineSee full engine specs
The only diesel in the range is a 1.5-litre four-cylinder with 128bhp and a 0-62mph time of 10.1sec. It has a decent amount of low-down shove but ultimately feels rather breathless even with just on person in the car. It does have the lowest CO2 emissions of all the conventional engines and has a best claimed economy figure of over 60mpg, making it worth considering for high mileage drivers who aren’t in a hurry. Be warned, though, refinement isn’t its greatest strength.
