Which used Peugeot 508 estate should I buy?
You'll be lucky to find a petrol-powered 508 SW, so if you need a non-diesel estate, we’d recommend you look for big-booted versions of the Skoda Octavia, Ford Mondeo or Volkswagen Passat instead; you're more likely to find one of those powered by fuel from the green pump.
Of the diesels that are available, go for the superior economy of the 1.6 HDi. While it might take longer to get up to speed than the larger 2.0-litre, the 508 SW isn’t exactly a driver’s car, and the smaller engine is quieter once up to speed.
Access trim comes with air conditioning, electric windows front and rear and an electronic stability programme.
Spend a bit more and get an Active version, though, because this adds cruise control, climate control and alloy wheels.
If that’s not enough for you, the Allure has partial leather trim, heated seats and parking sensors.
GT, meanwhile, adds sat-nav and full-leather seats, with electric adjustment for driver and passenger. We reckon both of these versions are a little pricey for what you get, mind you.
