SW review

by Ross (26 April 2002)

Although now we’ve published only a item on the general design of the 307 SW . this car is very high on the of new models which have readers into CARkeys via the search engines.

The idea of a car is part conventional hatchback and mini-MPV obviously appeals, to people who quite fancy one of the but don’t necessarily like the stance all vehicles of this are forced to adopt.

As one of the latest-generation hatchbacks from a point of view, the 307 has been very neatly to its SW status. for station wagon, but Peugeot want to call it either in full, or an estate. As far as the company is this is a new kind of car, and labels won’t do.

Okay, the SW has the 307 bodywork as far back as the B-pillar and effectively an estate car rear but it stands on a 100mm longer than the original car, is longer in the rear overhang, and wider overall.

Among the surprising things the specification is the fact that a glass roof is standard, not an option. The glass panel rearwards over the second and the third row of seats (if fitted), and the SW has an operated shutter which can under the whole roof, or as far as the want. The shutter is trimmed in the same way as the rest of the upper although with less in the way of

It makes the SW a real dual-purpose open to sunlight in the summer and snugly off in the winter.

Peugeot has a highly unusual attitude to the seating necessary these for any manufacturer wanting to attract buyers to this type of The standard rear cabin has individual seats which can be fore-and-aft or, in a simple manoeuvre, out altogether.

So the SW can have two seats up front and two and the two in the back can be placed so that offer better elbow than is possible when all are installed. When needed, the seats can be folded forward to the already generous luggage which is loaded over a low

But there are also mountings, them, for a pair of occasional seats, which can be bought Peugeot dealerships, either or as a pair, for an extra £165 Looking at the very handy of luggage space the SW offers in its mode, I think many will be quite happy that combination, although the way the seats are offered is certainly

Up front, it’s all familiar in particular the very attractive instruments and the fact that a tall driver doesn’t the faintest idea how far away the plate is. Many owners take quite a while to get to the dimensions of the SW in parking.

There are 1.6-litre and two-litre petrol engines, and a pair of HDi turbo diesels from amazing Trémery factory works 24 hours, seven a week. In the SW, they’re available in 90bhp and 110bhp trim.

may not be as many diesel-engined SWs sold as is in other Peugeot model because most of them probably be private buys than company cars, and the won’t have Benefit In to worry about.

On the road, the petrol model felt smooth-running, with a slicker than I found on the diesel. The the SW has over conventional mini-MPVs is it does feel just an ordinary car on the road, with handling – and very ride quality – isn’t compromised by excess

Prices start at £13,660 for the 1.6-litre S model and rise to for the top-rated seven-seater HDi 110 SE. Some with the two-litre petrol will be available with transmission from later in the when the list is complete.

The 307 SW has well worth waiting and it’s an ingenious design, as as good-looking, with plenty of colour options. And the dynamics are ahead of any mini-MPV.
