Superb family all-rounder will politely give rivals a bloody nose.
A safe way to move a family around in style.
Volvo has made something nicely distinctive here. It'd be impressive even if they'd been practicing for years
A properly desirable Volvo wagon - finally a decent alternative to the Germans.
As green as cars get these days, the V60 Plug-in has the best of both worlds – pace and economy.
The V60 is a sensible, safe Volvo, just as you’d expect. The estate car of choice if comfort means more to you than handling
Great-looking, great to drive new Volvo should be a fine car to own.
Goes in a different direction to the German alternatives, with convincing success.
A safe, sensible, comfortable saloon. Not a patch on the latest BMW 3-Series, though.
Everything we've come to love about new-age Volvos in a smaller size
The Peugeot 508 SW is a better car than the Citroen C5 Tourer it shares its chassis with.
Not the most rounded family estate, but the big Pug oozes desirability. Much cooler than a 3 Series
A big French saloon might be an oddball choice, but the 508 looks bold, feels good and drives (mostly) well
Peugeot ditches MPVs, does crossovers instead. Seven-seat 5008 is the biggest yet
This is among the best compact estates on sale (partly because it isn’t really compact at all).
Peugeot's hot hatch renaissance continues. The 308 GTI has a joyously wild streak
A job well done. The Golf is better, but not by much.
Lots of crossover showroom appeal, and lives up to it out on the road.
Peugeot has at last rediscovered some hot hatch form. Not the most startling small fast hatch, but a good effort.
Peugeot has a hit on its hands with the good looking and cheerily willing 208.
The 2008 is a proper little mashup, which just about works.
