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.

GT Premium takes the sporty styling of GT trim and adds a little more luxury. As well as the option of the Puretech 225 engine, you get ‘Active’ adjustable suspension on the Puretech 180 and 225, power-folding auto-dimming door mirrors, a 360-degree camera system, automatic parking, a premium Focal stereo, part Alcantara seats with electric adjustment and heating up front, and 19in wheels on all but the hybrid, which gets 20in wheels. A pricey option.

This plug-in hybrid has a combined 222bhp, but an electric range of up to 39 miles means the lowest CO2 emissions in the range by a country mile. Because of the sizeable battery pack required to make that possible, it isn’t as quick as the Puretech 225; 0-62mph takes a still respectable 8.3sec. So what’s the catch? Even in the cheapest trim its available in, Allure, it’s one of the priciest engine choices, while you’ll need to run almost exclusively in electric mode to get close to the claimed economy figure of over 200mpg.
