Our overall rating:
Once upon a time, in the not too distant past, the big, mainstream saloon car was about the only choice for those who needed plenty of space and lots of comfort for long distance driving. Since then, we’ve seen the rise and fall of the MPV followed by the ever increasing popularity of SUVs.
Factor in the increasing popularity of premium brands, and cars like the Peugeot 508, Ford Mondeo and Vauxhall Insignia have slid down the sales charts. Despite this, they are still well worth considering. The 508 comes with a range of efficient diesel engines, has plenty of equipment and a decent amount of space in the back, too.
Over the next few pages, we’ll let you know what it’s like to drive, what it’s like inside and which versions are the best.
