    Default New facelifted 307

    For those of you who don't like the "snout" of the 407, then get used to the new 307!

    I'm still deciding. I just wish they'd bring out a sporty, more powerful 307 and I'd consider buying one. For now I'll concentrate on finding a 306 Gti6.

    Default More powerful 307

    Just noticed that Peugeot (Europe anyway) ARE releasing the more powerful 180 HP (130Kw) engine from the 206 GTi 180 and 307CC in a new sports "Feline" 307 hatch model. So there is hope!

    I really wish Peugeot would release a hot 307.

    The GTi 180 fits quite well in the market, 180hp is appropriate for the class of the 206.

    However, the competitors to the 307 in terms of hot models now seem to be utilising 200hp+ turbocharged motors.

    Megane 225, Golf GTi etc. I wonder if the EW motor is suitable for turbocharging? I don't doubt the PSA engineers have the ability, after all the XU104JTE in the 405 T16 is a fairly powerful motor. How nice would a 307 with a torquey 200hp+ turbocharged motor be?

    I know traditionally Peugeot haven't swayed towards turbocharging for their hot hatches but unfortunately with the weight of cars presently it seems to be the only option in terms of retaining a four cylinder motor.

    Also PSA, offer a manual gearbox in the 407 V6 and fit the 250~hp version of the V6 found in the Clio V6.

    Great to finally see that 180 engine in the 307. Hopefully they can tighten up that awful suspension at the same time too.

    Next year PSA will introduce turbocharged engines in at least 207.
    Hopefully after 2 years coming 308 will get 2.0 turbo...

    The 307CC weighs quite a bit more than the 307 hatch. And yes the Aussie car mags have not been terribly impressed with the 180 engine in the 307CC.
    307CC Sport (180) 1490kgs
    307 Hatch XSR 1219kgs, XSi (3 door) 1202kgs
    206 GTi 180 1100kgs
    I think it would make a significant difference in the 307 hatches. But also, they do need to tie down the suspension a fair bit to make them more sporty.
    My friend has an XSE with auto, not very inspiring!!!!

    I'd go as far to say the 307 XSI that I travel in on almost a daily basis, is one of the worst cars I have ever had the misfortune of being in. Trully awful in so many respects.

    But more power is always a good thing. They've got that engine in the C4, so glad to see them fit it into the 307 hatch.

    The 307 Féline, available in 3 and 5 doors version. It's a very complete car (leather interior, clamate controle, radio, xenon-lights etc). It has 180bhp, which isn't that much compared with other brands (200+ bhp with turbo engines).


    For the new engine range of PSA, PSA works together with BMW. One of it's first products is the 1.6 16v Turbo engine:



    It will produce at least 143bhp for the 1007.

    Though, for the upcoming 207 this won't be enough as in the small-sized cars, the new Fiat Punto & Vauxhall Corsa will have a 1.6 Turbo with 170bhp.... but the new 1.6 16v range from PSA will also go up to 170bhp.

    Nice - if they bring the 307 Feline out here, I'll gladly upgrade my 307 XSE to the new model. Needs a bit more power.

    Just reading the latest Wheels magazine - they say the facelifted versions are due here in October. Hopefully the new 130kw version as well!

    Default 2.0L 180bhp

    Hi everyone,

    I am new here and I own a 307 hatch 1.6l (M) and yes I think it is under power for a car as heavy as 1.2 ton. Furthermore there are many traffic light all over Singapore streets and I can tell you when the light turn green, all you can see is Japanese make car will be in front of you already. Sometimes it feels frustrated, you know what I am saying?.... well now it have been a good news that Peugeot is realising the GTI engine from 206 GTI 2.0l 180bhp to the new facelift 307 Feline.
    Actually I am wondering / searching for this engine and hopefully I can transplant this powerful engine into my current 307. Please don't asked me to change the whole car to the new facelift 307 as it is very expansive just to change a new one in Singapore.... beside I already got a set of 17" rim with 225/45/17 goodyear F1 tyre.
    If some of you out there has the same idea or know where to get this engine, please let me know. Cheers.
