Being the replacement of the 306 which was a small car, the 307 Peugeot 2008 gets a bigger size, taking it into the mid-sized lineup.
307 Peugeot 2008 vs. Peugeot 306
In October 2005, the French marque decided to give a facelift for the 307, bringing the car a “big-grille” look. This had stirred up the auto market along with the launch of the Peugeot 407.
The facelift received a refreshment not only in its shape but also in its steering and handling, which required its customers extra money to get the changes.
It should be noted that in 2004, the 307 lineup welcomed a couple-cabriolet variant dubbed the 307 Peugeot 2008 CC. Although carrying a bulky tail that is not exactly of fondness for a car in its class, the convertible still gets a good look as it is adorned with a top down. With this innovative design, Peugeot can proudly claim to be the inventor of the folding hardtop and being the one who came up with practical designs in the 1930s.

Getting inside, the 307 Peugeot 2008 is capable of housing up to four people, however with a second passenger in the back seats, it seems to be cramped as you have to move the front seats forward a little in order to widen the legroom.

Meanwhile, the front seats are said to be spacious and comfortable for both the driver and passengers. But for the steering wheel, some drivers complained that it was quite disappointed as the 307 Peugeot 2008 - the replacement of the 306 - didn’t bring them the dynamic response as the smaller 306 did.
Speaking of the cabin space, the 307 receives appreciation as it is quite spacious for holding luggage and can be widened by folding the rear seats. If regularly carry a lot, you can look for the station wagon.
The car offers 3 options for the engine, two of them are petrol and the others are diesel, which are available in 1.6 L and 2.0 L versions. The engines are combined with a 5-speed manual transmission or a 4-speed automatic gearbox.

“Lethargic” is the exact word to describe the 307 Peugeot 2008 automatic. The 1.6 L 307 automatic comes with a sluggish response, even when the car air-conditioning system id off, its acceleration still lies motionless. Well, waiting for the acceleration’s operation is like waiting the sun rises!
It comes to another story as speaking of the manual version. The 5-speed manual transmission offers a quite good driving experience with a relatively short gearing, good torque spread and a totally quick response. It whirs from 0-100km/h in a neck-snapping 11 seconds before topping out. Both the 2.0 L and the 1.6 L deliver decent performance for everyday drive.
On the road, the 307 Peugeot 2008 showcases a nice balance with a solid braking feel, communicative steering and a good grip.
The 4-cylinder 1.6 L engine generates 147 Nm and 80 kW while the 2.0L produces 190 Nm and 100 kW. The 2.0 diesel’s figures are 206 Nm and 66 kW.
