Launched in 2001 the Peugeot 307 had the difficult task of replacing the best selling Peugeot of all time the 306. More than 2.7 million Peugeot 306's were produced and 420,000 of them were sold here in the UK.
Not surprisingly the 307 was an instant hit winning numerous accolades including the International Car of the Year award in 2001. Hot on the heels of the hatchback model came the 307 estate, the seven-seater 307 SW and the 307CC four-seater Coupe-Cabriolet with a fully automatic solid retractable hood.
The Peugeot 307 hatchback is available with 3 or 5 doors and six engine options which include three petrol engines a 1.4, 1.6 and 2.0 litre and three diesel engines a 1.4, 2.0 ( 90 bhp) and 2.0 (110 bhp).
We tested the 307 XSi 2.0 to find out if it really is 'the drive of your life'.
