Get the midlevel SE trim. The SE has a sport-tuned suspension for better handling. Don’t be worried about a stiff ride, although the SE remains relatively comfortable on the road. The SE can also be a good bargain considering all the safety and tech equipment you receive for the money. Finally, the SE is available with a wide selection of options, in order to pick and choose which ones are right for the budget.
Crossover SUVs may be most of the rage, but there’s still something to be said for the tried-and-true midsize sedan. Exhibit A: the Peugeot 307 Photo. Coming off a redesign just a year ago, the Peugeot 307 Photo is really a spacious, fuel-efficient sedan with lots of standard safety equipment and a lot of options to select from.
As has been the case for some time, you can get the Peugeot 307 Photo with a four-cylinder engine or even a better V6, or you may get the miserly Peugeot 307 Photo Hybrid. On the highway, the Peugeot 307 Photo is comfortable and compliant. Peugeot 307 Photo also offers two sporty versions that infuse the Peugeot 307 Photo with a little bit of extra personality. Inside, the Peugeot 307 Photo provides a simple yet feature-packed cabin, especially if you opt for one of many upper trim levels. There are plenty of options to choose from along the way.
The Peugeot 307 Photo is really as competent while they come. It’s well-priced on the whole, and modern feature content helps it be supremely an easy task to drive. If you’re searching for something with much more class and space than the usual small sedan, the Peugeot 307 Photo might you need to be the sedan for you.
The Peugeot 307 Photo is the base trim. It includes a relatively light load of features that features 16-inch steel wheels, automatic LED headlights, cloth upholstery, a height-adjustable driver’s seat, a rearview camera, keyless entry, a 7-inch touchscreen interface, navigation (GPS Scout Link), Apple CarPlay and Amazon Alexa connectivity, one USB port, Bluetooth, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and a six-speaker sound system.
Standard on every Peugeot 307 Photo Safety Sense, which is a suite of driver assistance features including adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane departure alert with steering assistance, and automatic high beams.
On the next rung up the ladder is the LE.It adds a power-adjustable driver’s seat, 17-inch alloy wheels, a 60/40-split folding back seat and a vehicle alarm. For a sporty dynamic, look at the SE.It adds a sport-tuned suspension, revised steering calibration, 18-inch wheels, simulated-leather upholstery (SofTex) seats and paddle shifters.
You can consider the XLE and the XSE trim levels as versions of the LE and the SE, respectively, with many different additional comfort and convenience items. Highlights include larger wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, a head-up display, blind-spot monitoring, keyless ignition, a power-adjustable front passenger seat, extra USB ports, a bigger 8-inch touchscreen, and wireless smartphone charging.
Many of the features on the upper trim levels can be added to the reduced trim levels as options. Other notable options incorporate a sunroof, a JBL sound system combined with an integrated navigation system, a head-up display, and a top-down parking camera system.
As sedans go, the Peugeot 307 Photo stuff-hauling credentials are pretty solid. The cargo area is large and opens wide, plus the rear seat is simple to fold down to match longer items. You can find enough cabin storage options to produce most people happy. Loading a car seat is straightforward, too.
Cabin storage is good but not stellar. The forward center console bin is great for concealing items but has a hard, slippery floor, so that they slide around noisily. The console bin at your elbow is a decent size, and you can find modest door pockets in the leading and rear that are good for small water bottles only.
The Peugeot 307 Photo includes a large trunk, and the 60/40-split folding back seat with trunk-mounted release handles ensure it is simple to expand the space. Loading groceries or luggage is helped out by the wide opening and a low liftover height.
Child safety seat accommodation
It’s very easy to mount an automobile seat, with obvious and easy to get at lower anchors and package tray-mounted tether point, both under plastic covers. There’s room enough so your front seat need not be scooted completely forward.
