Charge of the light brigade -- Peugeot's new 308SW
THIS is Peugeot's new 308SW (estate) which gets here in July.
It's a whopping 140kg lighter than the old one and will have a good mix of petrol and diesels. One version in particular, the BlueHDi diesel, has emissions of just 85g/km.
This is 4.58 metres long and 1.47 metres high, so there should be plenty of cabin and luggage room -- they claim the boot is among the largest in its segment. You can fold the rear seats in one fell swoop from inside the boot so you get a flat floor if needed.
