Peugeot 508 SW - 1.6 HDi [2Tronic] and Avondale

Jonny utah reviewed on 17-06-2018 a Peugeot 508 SW - 1.6 HDi [2Tronic] (82 Kw/112 bhp year: january 2011 - 2015) and a Avondale Dart 556-6 of (laden) 1245 kg.

For a small engine the 508 does the job well. Average 55mpg without the van, high 20s with it. The auto gearbox isn't great but it's better when towing as you can use the paddles to downshift when you want . Have not towed with anything else so can't make a comparison, but I tow infrequently and am happy to plod along with the van and reap the mpg benefits when not towing. Being an estate it does sag so am fitting rubber spring aids. Also had car remapped to 135bhp + added torque .... looking forward to seeing how it tows with the added grunt.
