I previously had a Renault Clio 1.6 RXE which was a cracking car but as my familiy started to grow, the 2 door car needed to go.

We looked around and as soon as we saw the 307, we both pretty much took to it's stunning looks. The Peugeot dealer was not pushy at all and we took it for a quick test drive. Coming from the Clio, this thing was a tank.

Even though it has good lines on the outside, I have to have a car that looks nice inside, thats what you get to look at all day whilst your driving it, and this did although the deep dash seemed quite strange at first. It was comfortable and spacious, smooth and for a diesel, i thought it was quite quiet.

The engine is a little small but that's fine, if you want a bigger engine then go for the 2.0 litre and stop moaning about the 1.4. It drives down the motorway at (ah herm) 70mph without a problem and I find the fuel comsumption to be good, but then I did come from a Petrol.

Air conditioning was a must for me and this has it, it even as an A/c outlet in the glovebox.

There seems to be Airbags everywhere you look and you can disable the passenger airbag if you have a rear facing child seat fitted.

The boot is very large with 2 handy pockets on either side. Speaking of handy pockets the pockets in the doors are big enough to live in and where ever there was some un-used space, peuget seem to have made some sort of storage compartment from it.

It only things that has let it down, just a tiny amount, is
1. the carpet occasionally comes out from under the plastic trim but it pushes back in again easy enough.
2. The rear passenger side external dorr handle is a little tempremental if you don't give it a good tug to open it.
3. The indicator stick is a little over keen. Occasionally when you turn a corner and let the steering wheel come back quickly, the speed of the steering wheel turning not only cancels the indicator but turns on the opposite indicator.

Overall I am VERY happy with my purchase, the price was right, the insurance is cheap enough, and the road tax is cheaper because it has a small engine. It feels good to drive and good to look at. The 1.4 HDi engine is just that, a 1.4 deisel, so if it takes 20-30 secs to get to 60 then so be it. If you want something faster buy a sports car and stop moaning.

I've never gone for Peugeots, preferring VW, but this sounds like an ideal car for my wife to get the kids to and from school and for running around town.
