One can say with confidence that in terms of appearance 2018-2019 Peugeot 308 SW is far ahead of its competitors. And it really is, look at the wagons Volkswagen Golf, Ford Focus, Chevrolet Cruze and the Skoda Octavia. Against the background of the 2018-2019 Peugeot 308 SW all of them pale, gray and expressionless.
