According to Peugeot's press literature 'the 307 is one of the biggest cars in its class' and this benefits the occupants with excellent head and leg room in both the front and rear - even the 3-door version.

Comfort and Refinement
According to Peugeot's press literature 'the 307 is one of the biggest cars in its class' and this benefits the occupants with excellent head and leg room in both the front and rear - even the 3-door version. The part leather and cloth sports front seats are standard on the XSi 2.0 model and were particularly comfortable and supportive holding you in place very well. Both driver and front passenger's seats are height adjustable. The seat adjustment features a lever to adjust the recline and we found it difficult to get the seat recline correct - a dial adjustment would be much easier to use. The leather trimmed steering wheel is height and reach adjustable enabling the driver to attain the perfect driving position.
The Peugeot 307 XSi 2.0's standard level of refinement is high and includes: remote control central locking, remote control closing of electric windows via key fob, one touch electric windows front and rear with anti pinch feature, electric folding and adjustable door mirrors, electric boot release on tailgate, athermic (heat reflective) windscreen, digital air conditioning with climate control, air-conditioned glove box, automatic rain-sensing front wipers and automatic headlights on, leather trimmed steering wheel and gear knob, electrochrome rear view mirror, trip computer, instrument panel lighting dimmer and external temperature gauge.
