Car reviews - Peugeot - 307 - range


The Peugeot 307 was a European car of the year but does it cut the mustard here?

26 Sep 2002

THE Peugeot 307's tall-boy design with its drooping nose is a big change from the hunched pocket-rocket shape of the 306, not only being significantly taller but also wider and with a longer wheelbase. It lacks the nimbleness and chuckability of its predecessor, replacing it with a solidity of build and quietness you could only imagine in the old car. The 307 is powered by a choice of 1.6 or 2.0-litre petrol engines or - in the true Peugeot oil-burner tradition - a 2.0-litre turbo-diesel. It will be interesting to see if 307's Euro credibility and sales success translates to Australia, where an audience weaned on the 306 will have some adjusting to do.
Model release date: 1 December 2001 to 1 October 2005
