Fuel economy

A more stringent standard for fuel economy (WLTP) was introduced from September 2017, and this model was not required to undergo that test. Its fuel economy measured under the previous test system was 34 - 60 mpg. However these figures are less likely to be achievable in real world driving and so should never be compared to another car's mpg which was measured under the newer, more realistic WLTP system.

Economical engines, especially from the frugal diesel models, reasonable insurance and relatively strong resale values. Long service intervals; parts and servicing costs not cheap however.

307 is an environmentally friendly model. With an average of 156 g/km CO2 across the range, its emissions are relatively low for a small family estate. However, it's worth noting that the line up has a high number of diesel models, bringing the average down and giving buyers more choices of low-emission versions. Diesels typically produce less CO2 than petrol engines with similar power outputs.

Eco-conscious buyers should consider the 1.4-litre diesel, which is one of the greenest models in the range. The range is impressively frugal, averaging 47 mpg.

Not as good as you'd expect. Nothing major, but lots of niggles and unhappy customers. new electrical system from 2005 should improve reliability.
