The 207 SW is the smallest of the Station Wagons from Peugeot, with the SW standing for Sport Wagon rather than Station Wagon, but essentially meaning the same thing. Whether the 207 is actually big enough to be considered a proper station wagon is debatable as the 207 is a rather small car, the same size as a Ford Fiesta or VW Polo.

The Peugeot 207 SW comes with a range of miniature petrol and diesel engines, with a 1.4 and 1.6 petrol and turbo diesel available, with the diesels being more expensive but also the more popular choice.

The SW in the title stands for ‘Sport Wagon’, a name which can be a little deceiving as there is nothing inherently sporting about the car, and Station Wagon would perhaps be more apt, but Sport Wagon seems to be the default choice from the French manufacturers when naming their Estate cars.

The 308 SW is based on a lengthened version of the standard Puegeot 308, a Europe only hatchback about the size of a VW Golf or Ford Focus, and as is common with most compact European cars, has a range of small capacity 1.4, 1.6 and 2.0 litre 4 cylinder petrol and diesel engines, with the diesels being the biggest seller.

The 407 SW is the largest of the Station Wagons offered by Peugeot, and is part of the 407 range which also includes a sedan and a coupe. The Peugeot 407 is not on sale in the US, and as it it due to be replaced by the new 408 sometime in late 2010, it probably never will be!

The Peugeot 407 competes in Europe with cars like the Honda Accord, VW Passat and Ford Mondeo in terms of size and price, and targets both the family car and company car fleet market. It is offered with a range of 4 cylinder petrol and diesel engines, but the 2.0 turbo diesel is by far the best seller in the range.
