307 CC

Peugeot logo1 Feb 2004

The smaller 206 CC’s folding hardtop roof-led success prompted Peugeot to go the same way for the replacement of the beautiful 306 Cabriolet.

The result is the 307 CC, a large four-seat Coupe-Convertible aimed at filling the gap between the smaller CCs and the popular Saab 9-3 Convertible.

Styled in-house, the heavy (due to much bolstering of the regular model’s platform) 307 CC is virtually all-new from the windscreen back, and has surprisingly dumpy two-box rear styling – a necessity to accommodate the very large folding roof.

Two 2.0-litre DOHC 16V four-cylinder models are available – the 100kW/190Nm Dynamic in five-speed manual or four-speed automatic guises, or the more luxurious manual-only 130kW/202Nm Sport.

Peugeot dumped its French roof-mechanism supplier for Mercedes’ German one, but some overseas reports still report operational failures and the occasional leak.
