What Car? says

3 out of 5 stars

For It looks pretty cool and most models are packed with loads of toys and safety kit

Against The 307 is tall and heavy, so don't expect athletic agility or performance. Rear space also isn’t great

Verdict There are lemons about, but you can certainly get a lot of car for your cash

Go for… 110bhp 1.6-litre diesel

Avoid… Early 1.4-litre petrols

Peugeot 307 Hatchback
  • 1. The narrow boot opening can make getting bulkier items in easier said than done
  • 2. The sloping rear roofline makes headroom in the back tight
  • 3. The indicator stalks can fail, so make sure every function on them works and that they feel solid
  • 4. Head gaskets have been known to give up the ghost on some early 1.4 petrols
  • 5. Suspension faults are fairly common, even on recent examples
