I have just test driven the 5 door version of this car (the Rapier model).

I want to have a diesel car and I have test driven this car as well as the Citroen Xsara (although the Xsara was 90 bhp as opposed to 110 bhp in the Peugeot.)

The Citroen Xsara is currently on offer (along with the Saxo and Picasso) suggesting a new model in the near future as the C3, C5 & C8 have arrived or are imminent for delvery to a showroom near you. The diesel Xsara (90 bhp) was a good ride and comfy - but the Peugeot 307 110bhp was a dream in comparison.

The exterior is perfectly adequate - no qualms there.

The interior is beyond belief. The driving position is very variable and should suit all - I found it perfect for making my comfortable zone. (Not easy when some cars aggrevate my hip condition.) I loved the lay out in the dash/cabin - everything where I'd want it to be. The driving seat can be adjusted for distance, height and back position. I achieved the perfect position for me, even on a test drive. It has air conditioning - a must these days!

Load - you can drop the back seats 60/40 and achieve the flat loading necessary for flat pack furniture. The seat you sit on drops to the vertical behind the front seats and the back of the back seat falls into the horizontal position. If you are carrying passengers as opposed to goods load, the leg room is very good.

The drive was like a dream - is this really a diesel? It compared more than adequately with a petrol 1.6 16v Astra. The combined fuel mpg comes in at approx 54 - almost half as much again over my Astra.

One test drive and I'm hooked. This is my next car & I'm arranging the finance.

I've always liked the look of this car since it was produced.

I just ordered a new 206 yesterday and saw these whilst I was at the showroom. They look quite nice, but I didn't actually try one out. From your review though, they sound pretty good! Angeelu :o)
