Peugeot 308 SW Allure BlueHDi 120 road test report and review

IF you like Peugeot’s svelte 508 SW, but find it a tad on the tardis size, then this new 308SW will virtually sell itself to you.
Peugeot have done it again with the design of this car – it looks superb. The Peugeot range, in my opinion, is among the best of any manufacturer at the moment, and if you haven’t had a close look at it recently, then it’s certainly time you did.

VW Golf Estate SE 1.6 TDI BlueMotion road test report and review

THIS estate version of the latest Mk VII Golf, handy for Christmas shopping, is longer, wider and lower than its predecessor and its changed profile gives it a slightly sportier look while its practical virtues remain.

The boot, expandable to 1,620 litres, is 125 litres bigger than before and larger than average for a class which includes the Focus and Astra. The variable floor can be set at two levels above a basement – itself giving extra storage around the skinny spare wheel as well as a space for the canvas luggage cover when it’s not in use.
