The Peugeot 307 HDi - Britain's Favourite Diesel Car In May

Peugeot 307

The Peugeot 307 was the UK’s best selling diesel model during the month of May, securing 5.2% of the rapidly expanding diesel market. As a result, nearly 60% of total 307 sales were diesel derivatives. Year-to-date, the 2002 ‘Car of the Year’ winner represents the country’s second best selling diesel car – testament to its outstanding combination of style, performance and economy.

The diesel market continues to grow at a pace with sales accounting for 26.5% of the total UK market. Peugeot continues to lead the world in diesel technology, with its current range of HDi engines providing an unrivalled level of refinement and representing outstanding value for money. And it’s not just the 307 that is in demand. The Peugeot 206, Britain’s best selling retail car for three consecutive years, is available with a state-of-the-art all-alloy 1.4 HDi engine from as little as £8870.00 and is capable of returning an astounding 78.5 mpg!

Additionally, many models feature PSA Peugeot Citroen’s ground breaking FAP technology – the particulate filter system that represents a major breakthrough in environmental protection.

The Peugeot 307 is one of Europe’s most versatile vehicle ranges. Available in hatchback and estate guise, the range is further enhanced by the SW derivative – a versatile and stylish car that offers numerous seating configurations for up to seven people and a wonderful panoramic glass roof.

Later this year, the range-topping 307 Coupé Cabriolet will go on sale to an eager public. Featuring rakish good looks, seating for four adults and an electrically retractable hard-top (a Peugeot feature first seen on the award-winning 206 Coupé Cabriolet), the 307CC is set to take the market by storm.
