Peugeot 308 SW rivals

The 308 SW may look like an ordinary family estate, but it has a trick up its sleeve that makes it one of a kind - an extra row of seats in the back. While there are plenty of people carriers and 4x4s able to transport seven passengers there are few manufacturers that offer so many seats in a vehicle of this size, so the 308 SW has obvious attractions.

As a result it's a great family car, and features such as the separate opening tailgate glass and huge boot capacity make it a realistic alternative to a conventional people carrier. It's not exciting to drive but with a well finished cabin and smooth ride, it's a comfortable and safe choice.
