Handling, big-car ride, value.
Some nasty high-milers about, interiors wear badly.
The 306 was always justifiably popular thanks to its excellent handling and ride, sturdy construction and practical interior layout. It was never the most modern car in its class, but always a contender and one of the first of the modern diesels to be worth the smoke. A wide range of engines, bodies and equipment levels means that there is a 306 for almost everyone, from nofrills family hatchbacks to roomy estates, desirable sports models and elegant cabriolets.
