The Peugeot 308 SW is a spacious family estate car, with high equipment levels featuring throughout every trim line. Borrowing from the smart aesthetics of its hatchback cousin, the 308 SW exudes an upmarket feel both inside and out.
Here in the Allure trim, we see additions such as stylish 10-spoke, 17-inch, alloy wheels. Other smart exterior features on the Allure include front fog lights, and full LED headlights. Practical exterior touches also include automatic headlights and windscreen wipers, whilst both front and rear parking sensors make parking in even the tightest of spots a breeze.
Engines in the Allure range include the sprightly 1.2 litre Puretech petrol engine. This comes in both 110 PS and 130 PS tunings for strong pulling power, but offers hatchback economy at 59mpg. Diesel options include the two HDi engines in 1.6 litre and 2.0 litre form. The 1.6 litre BlueHDi diesel features an impressive blend of power and economy, which makes the 308 SW an ideal tow car.
Thanks to an extended wheelbase, the 308 is also hugely practical, and features one of the largest boot sizes in this class at 660 litres. The rear seats fold completely flat through quick-release levers in the boot, providing a wide, flat loading area with a 1,775 litre capacity. A load-through hatch is standard across the range, whilst the load area features hooks to attach an optional dog net.
Inside, the allure trim boasts comfort features like dual-zone air conditioning, and leather-trimmed steering wheel. The 9.7 inch touchscreen puts you in control of your multimedia features, with DAB Radio, USB input and Bluetooth connectivity all as standard. Satellite Navigation is also a standard feature on this model.
Overall, the sharply-styled Peugeot 308 SW offers impressive value, with high levels of standard equipment throughout the range. It also makes a great family car, with a high-capacity, versatile loading space.
