What Car? says

2 out of 5 stars

For The load area is large and practical, and the ride and handling are very good, too

Against Early cars lack many standard safety features, and the cabin hasn't aged well

Verdict It's a practical and pleasant-to-drive workhorse, but it's far from fault-free

Go for… 2.0 HDi

Avoid… 1.4 petrol

Peugeot 306 Estate
  • 1. Tall passengers will find headroom cramped in the back
  • 2. Thanks to the generous boot, the 306 Estate is surprisingly practical
  • 3. Faulty engine control units are common
  • 4. Get an expert to check out the suspension. Worn dampers and heavily laden cars are a dangerous combination
