How It Looks -

With its curvaceous exterior lines, wrap around headlights, large swooping windscreen and high roofline the designers of the Peugeot 307 have created a bold and stylish car with lashings of French chic. The 307 XSi features body coloured front and rear bumpers, 17" Challenger alloy wheels, body coloured door mirror housings & handles and body coloured side rubbing strips which protect the bodywork from minor parking damage.

The Peugeot 307 is a truly beautiful car that stands out from the more run of the mill average looking family hatchbacks.

How It Looks - Interior

The interior styling is as you would expect of Peugeot modern, stylish, functional and uncluttered with chunky and tactile switchgear. The black interior plastics were of a good quality and are enhanced with aluminium effect trim. The leather wrapped steering wheel and gear knob are tactile and the gear knob has a chrome inlay.

The 307 XSi 2.0's seat upholstery was half black leather with contrasting fabric inserts. Both the seat fabric and carpets were of a good quality and should prove durable in the long term.

Infotainment

The Peugeot 307 XSi 2.0 is equipped with an in-dash 5-CD autochanger / radio and 4 speakers with two additional front tweeters as standard. Good sound quality with steering wheel mounted controls keeping your hands safely on the wheel and speed related volume controls.

Our test car was fitted with DVD Satellite Navigation with a black & white display and GSM phone. This system is a £915 option and although expensive it was absolutely superb to use. A colour system is available at extra cost.
