Peugeot 307: Guide To Buying

The Amazing Peugeot 307

From the reputed French automobile manufacturing company Peugeot comes the pretty car known as Peugeot 307. This car was first manufactured in 2001. In 2002, Peugeot 307 won the prestigious European award for being the most popular car that year and is still available in some countries in South America and China. However, France has already launched its newer version in 2007, the Peugeot 308.

Successor of Peugeot 307

Peugeot 307 was the successor of Peugeot 306 and had the popular hatchback design associated with it. It was widely sold in Asia, New Zealand and Australia, Mexico. The car was also sold in Brazil with minor changes in the engines, which were made compatible to other car fuels like ethanol and gas.

Great features of Peugeot 307

This small family car has great features which are:

- Peugeot 307 is a larger car, than its predecessor Peugeot 306. You would enjoy driving it, as it has comfortable seats with good driving seating space.

- It is a tall compact car and enjoys a height of over one thousand millimeters.

- Peugeot 307 still maintains certain design elements of Peugeot 206, like the steep car bonnet, which slowly integrates into the windscreen which is large and sloping in nature.

- This car also sported rear doors which are upright in nature. But said goodbye to the Italian design car themes known as Pininfarnia.

The Peugeot 307 is thus a sturdy car and a great buy for a small family.
