Handling; 'big car' ride; value
Some nasty high-milers about; interiors wear badly
The classy 306 cabriolet was the drop-top of choice for the mid-nineties sophisticate. Its Pininfarina-styled body looks classy and exudes a south-of-France charm. Not that many buyers are trading up to the 307CC or Renault Megane CC, prices are becoming increasingly realistic. Go for a 2.0-litre if you can, it's a more enjoyable drive than the 1.6.
