Which used Peugeot 307 hatchback should I buy?

There are three petrol engines, but you'll do much better if you pick one of the diesels. The 1.4-, 1.6- and 2.0-litre engines are all decent, but our favourite is the 110bhp.

If you must have a petrol, avoid the he asthmatic 1.4 that struggles with the 307's bulk. The 1.6 is a better option and our preferred petrol, as the 138bhp 2.0-litre engine is lively, but needs to be worked hard.

All 307s are well stacked with equipment, with a fully adjustable driver's seat and steering wheel, power-assisted steering, remote central locking and electric front windows.

However, the cheapest do without a CD player and wheel-mounted stereo controls, as well as air-conditioning. So, take one step up the range into an S model (our pick of the range), where air-conditioning joins the roster.

There are bags and bags of cars about, so you shouldn't have any trouble picking one up from a dealer, auction, supermarket or private seller. But, make sure you shop around.
