6/10
Overall verdict
The Peugeot 508 SW is a better car than the Citroen C5 Tourer it shares its chassis with.
 

For: 

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

Against: 

It's not the most spacious car for the money

Overview

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.
