Which used Peugeot 307 estate should I buy?
It's simple - go for a diesel. Peugeot makes good diesel engines but wins no prizes for its petrol motors. First came a 2.0 HDi, providing 90bhp or 110bhp. Then, in 2005, Peugeot face-lifted the 307 and introduced 1.6 HDis to replace the 2.0s. The newcomers produced as much power but used less fuel. If you want a petrol engine go for the 1.6 or, better still, the 2.0.
Estate versions of the 307 provide a choice between just two trim levels. Both have a full tally of safety equipment but the higher S models inlcude the alloy wheels and air conditioning missing from the cheaper Style or (post-face-lift) E models.
