The Peugeot 308 SW Review 0

The Peugeot 308 SW is an extremely practical estate car which looks the part too. We take a look at the car and discuss why it betters most rivals.


We start off today with the element of safety with the Peugeot 308 SW as it is perhaps the car’s strongest attribute. At the strenuous Euro NCAP tests the managed to secure a maximum score of five stars for adult protection. Child safety received a respectable score of four out of five stars. All models contain stability control as standard which is major plus considering some rivals do not have this feature as standard. On top of that all models have six airbags within the cabin as standard. From a security perspective the car ranks up there with the highest, with the vehicle containing deadlocks and remote locking.


The Peugeot 308 SW has a great amount of practicality allowing plenty of storage in the boot. At the higher end of the scale, the top level trims come with the three back seats being able to fold back and slide up and down. This can create more space for passengers or storage items at the back if needed. Two extra chairs can also be inserted into the boot of the car to give more seating options.


A great feature about the Peugeot 308 SW is the great level of equipment that the car has. As standard within the Access models, you will get air conditioning, a CD player and full electric windows everywhere.

Upgrading to the Active model will provide cruise control, automatic wipers and lights, alloy wheels, individual rear seats which are able to recline and slide independently and Bluetooth connectivity ability.

Allure models contain climate control, part leather seats as well as handy parking sensors. Further up the line the GT models contain a sporty type of exterior giving the car an aggressive look.
