Peugeot 306 History
The Phase 1 (1993-97) Peugeot 306 was built upon the same platform as the Citroen ZX, and had almost identical mechanical parts, as they both come from the same company. These cars came in a variety of different types: hatchback, estate, saloon and cabriolet. There was also a wide variety of engines and trims, to suit many different types of customer. There was a selection of performance cars included in this range.
The Phase 2 306 (1997-99) was introduced to bring the 306 in-line with the new stream lined, rounded design of the modern Peugeot cars of the time. This mainly affected exterior parts such as the bumpers, lights and grille. A fresh update to the interior and a few new engines became available as well.
The Phase 3 (1999-2002) version again received some changes to the exterior, but not as much of a change as took place on the previous version. The interior was updated very slightly. This was the last of the 306 versions to be built. Production ceased in 2002 and was replaced by the 307.
Across the range of different available engines, there are: 1.1, 1.4, 1.6, 1.8 and 2.0 petrol engines and 1.9 and 2.0 L diesel engines. The most economical is the 2.0 HDi diesel engine, with 54mpg. Consider age, fuel type and engine size when determining fuel economy.
