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.
