Following on from its recent accolades from Top Gear Magazine with the 307 hatchback awarded Best Compact Car, and the 307 SW winning Best Family Car, Peugeot is revising the range to make the model line-up simpler for customers to choose the 307 which is just right for them.
The number of 307 trim levels in the range has been reduced from five to four and the new line-up includes: Style, S (replaces Rapier), SE (replaces GLX) and XSi/Dturbo.
S replaces the former Rapier model, and gets two new exterior colours, mercury grey and oakland green. In replacing the GLX, the SE gets body coloured bumpers and side rubbing strips and an additional colour – Aegean blue.
Cruise control has been added to the XSi model so that it now has identical specification to the Dturbo.
Except for the Style, a colour satellite navigation system is now available on all hatchbacks, estates and SW models for £1,350 (including VAT).
To enhance the 307’s impressive reputation for safety, Electronic Stability Programme (ESP), currently standard on all HDi 110 versions, is now available as an option on all 307 models except 1.4 litre petrol and 1.4 HDi.
To ease reversing, the rear parking aid – park assist – which is already available on the estate and SW models, will be available from June, on all hatchbacks (except Style) for £250 (including VAT).
Prices for the 307 range now start at £10,995 on the road for the 3 door 1.4 Style hatchback, ranging to £16,700 for the 307 SE.Published 17 May 2003
