The Peugeot 307 CC 2.0 16v 180 Sport is equipped with the following safety and security equipment as standard:

Comfort and Refinement

Inside the cabin all the controls and switchgear are to hand - the roof is lowered by a switch next to the handbrake on the central tunnel. There aren’t any fussy clips or levers to play with, simply push or pull the switch, at speeds of up to 6 miles per hour to raise or lower the roof.

Even with roof down moderate rain is not going to affect you, the angle and design of the windscreen helps to deflect rain out of the cabin. Only when you come to a halt will you notice the rain, unless it is really heavy.

The sports seats were comfortable and supportive holding you in place very well. Both driver and front passenger's seats are height adjustable and the front seats recline (with memory). The leather trimmed steering wheel is adjustable for height and reach enabling you to find the perfect driving position.

Follow me home headlights and an air conditioned glove compartment are standard on the 2.0 16v 180 Sport model and the interior anti-dazzle mirror with electrochrome technology comes as standard on all 307 CC's. Two sensors compare the light intensity at the front and the rear of the vehicle and transmit an instruction to darken the mirror if necessary. The mirror consists of two sections, between which a gel is formed by electrolysis, which automatically darkens the mirror and reduces reflection.

The Peugeot 307 CC 2.0 16v 180 Sport's level of refinement is high and includes:

A central button for operating all four electric windows simultaneously, remote control closing for windows from plip key, tinted glass and dark tinted rear screen, electric folding door mirrors, electrically operated and heated door mirrors, intermittent rear wash/wipe, visibility pack (automatic rain sensing front wipers, automatic headlight on, front fog light, electrochrome rear view mirror), air-conditioning with air conditioned glove box, heating/air-conditioning outlet in rear, individual driver/passenger temperature controls for digital air conditioning, 12V accessory power point in centre console, 12V socket in boot, boot light, two front drinks holders, storage area and coin holder in centre console, driver and passenger illuminated vanity mirror, front and rear courtesy lights with delay, front door stowage bins for 1.5L bottle, front map reading lights, front seat back map pockets, front/rear armrests within door panels, glovebox with light and storage within lid, rear door stowage bins for 0.5L bottle, rear litter bin and storage in outer sides of front seats.
