Which used Peugeot 307 coupe should I buy?
Most importantly, the range received some minor alterations is 2005, designed to improve reliability, so go for one of those if you can afford it.
There are four engines to choose from, starting off with a 110bhp 1.6-litre petrol unit, and including two 2.0-litre petrols (with 138bhp and 180bhp). Then, from 2005 a 136bhp 2.0-litre diesel option was also available.
In reality, the 1.6 petrol engine is not really up to pulling such a heavy car, and even the 2.0-litre petrols don't feel particularly quick, especially with the automatic gearbox, which is available with the 138bhp petrol only. As a result, the diesel, which has the most pulling power, is best suited to the CC's more laidback driving style.
Equipment levels are good, and all models come with alloy wheels, climate control and a CD player, as well as electric operation for the roof, windows and mirrors. The most powerful model has part-leather trim and a CD multichanger. Desirable options to look out for include full leather trim and sat-nav.
