The Top Gear car review: Peugeot 508 SW

Overall verdict
The Peugeot 508 SW is a better car than the Citroen C5 Tourer it shares its chassis with.


The degree of general improvement is amazing. Nicely styled, too


It's not the most spacious car for the money


What is it?

Another eyebrow-raising effort from a brand we’d all but written off a few years ago, the 508 SW is the even better estate version of Peugeot’s unexpectedly good mid-sized model. Quality is impressive and so too, we all think, is the styling. And these cars drive with real ability, taking power from a set of decent engines. This is impressive stuff from Peugeot, and yours for a very decent price.
