Good looks, fun to drive, competitive load space
No central cubbies, automatic 'box still not perfect
For business drivers looking for more practicality than the saloon, the Peugeot 508 SW could be the car to choose. For many the SW is better looking than the saloon: it has more curves and an elegant shoulder line. However, don’t let the shape deceive you. The SW may look very lengthy to the naked eye when compared with the saloon but it's only 2cm longer, giving the car good manoeuvrability in town as well as good road manners when out on the open road. The svelte shape of the SW may attract business or fleet drivers to its ranks but can it cut the mustard as a practical tourer for families at the weekends? It has its work cut out though because there are plenty of rivals with good credentials.
An update was announced for the 508 SW in 2013. Several of the trim levels were bolstered with more equipment to make the car more attractive to both private and fleet buyers. There was a hike in price too, but the extra equipment made it better value overall.
