Peugeot 307 Review

The Peugeot 307 CC was launched in the UK in October 2003 - offering both a four seat Coupe and a Cabriolet at the touch of a button.

The Peugeot 307 CC was launched in the UK in October 2003 - offering both a four seat Coupe and a Cabriolet at the touch of a button. Although an integral part of the 307 family the 307 CC is a model in its own right.

Contrary to popular belief, Peugeot invented the concept of a powered retractable hardtop back in the 1930's with the production of the Peugeot 401 Eclipse.

The Peugeot 307 CC is available with a choice of three petrol engines a 1.6 16v, 2.0 16v 138 bhp and 2.0 16v 180 bhp. A 5-speed manual transmission is standard throughout the 307 CC range but the 2.0 16v 138 bhp model is available with a 4-speed Auto Adaptive Automatic with Tiptronic System Porsche (also including sport and winter settings, plus shift lock).

Prices range from £16,995 for the entry-level 1.6 16v to £20,945 for the range topping 2.0 16v 180 Sport.

With competition in the form of the MINI Cooper Convertible and the Renault Megane Coupe-Cabriolet - we tested the 307 CC 2.0 16v 180 Sport to find out if Peugeot's offering can hold its own within the competitive world of 4-seat coupe cabriolets/convertibles.
