Peugeot have done an excellent job with the exterior and interior design of the Peugeot 307 creating a beautiful looking car.

What We Liked
  • Exterior and interior styling
  • High level of standard safety equipment
  • Excellent integrated stereo, optional Satellite Navigation and GSM telephone
  • Automatic rain-sensing windscreen wipers
  • Automatic headlights
What We Disliked
  • 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.
What We'd Like To See
  • Xenon headlights as standard on the top of the range model
Build Quality

Overall build quality is very good and there is little to fault. The materials used are of a high standard and should prove durable in the long term.

Value For Money

At £15,320 OTR the Peugeot 307 XSi 2.0 is very good value for money as it offers a high level of standard safety equipment combined with excellent levels of refinement at a very competitive price.

Conclusion

The 307 is a practical family hatchback that doesn't compromise on fun.

Peugeot have done an excellent job with the exterior and interior design of the Peugeot 307 creating a beautiful looking car.

Both its performance and handling are commendable but it is no hot hatch. However, it is well worth a look if you want to stay away from more staid manufacturers such as Ford, Toyota and Vauxhall.
