The 508 SW commands a premium of around £1600 over the 508 saloon. That means it isn’t exactly a bargain and costs a bit more to buy outright than equivalent versions of the Skoda Superb Estate and Ford Mondeo Estate, but it undercuts premium rivals such as the BMW 3 Series Touring.
If you're looking for a PCP finance deal, the 508 SW is fairly expensive. As a company car, though, it should be good value, because its CO2 emissions are impressively low. Fuel economy is equally notable, so it shouldn’t cost a lot to run compared with rivals.
A long list of standard safety equipment adds appeal; lane-keeping assistance, automatic emergency braking (AEB) with pedestrian detection and driver attention monitoring are all fitted across the range. Indeed, Euro NCAP awards the 508 SW five stars for safety, with very high ratings for adult and child occupant protection.
In terms of overall equipment levels, the second of the four rungs on the spec ladder, Allure, strikes the best balance between affordability and luxuries.
In the 2018 What Car? Reliability Survey, Peugeot finished a disappointing 24th out of 31 brand in the manufacturer’s table. It's too early for specific data on the 508, but its three-year, unlimited-mileage warranty is only slightly better than the three-year/60,000-mile warranty that's average for the class.
