New Peugeot 307 CC Review
Amazingly the electrically folding hard top was first used on a Peugeot seventy years ago in 1936, in fact they were the first manufacturer to use this technology.
So seventy years later we have the Peugeot 307 CC, with a push of a button the 307 CC's roof gently retracts and folds itself neatly away into the boot in a little over twenty seconds and although it does take up about half the space there is still enough room to slide in an average size suitcase.
A little sportier than the 307 hatch, the CC has slightly lower seats giving that feeling of being closer to the road and making it feel like more of a driver's car. Overall rigidity of the chassis has been increased to allow for the removal of the roof, but nonetheless, the 307 CC scores an extremely respectable four out of five stars in its Euro ncap rating.
The 307 CC has a choice of three petrol engines and one diesel. The petrol's are a 1.6 litre that returns 110 bhp, or two 2.0 litre variants that develop 138 and 180 bhp respectively. Finally the diesel option, this unit develops 136 bhp and has a top speed of 129mph.
All CC's have alloy wheels, a CD player, electric windows and obviously the fully electric roof, the more powerful-engined model has the addition of a CD multi changer, bigger alloy wheels and part leather upholstery. If that is not enough, paid options include full leather, satellite navigation and on the 138 bhp petrol the choice of an automatic gearbox.
Like the looks of the Peugeot 307 CC, why not check out the Audi A4 Cabriolet, the BMW 3 Series Convertible, the Renault Megane Coupe Cabriolet, the Volvo C70 or the VW Beetle Cabriolet.
