Five Buyer: 1993

PEU­GEOT 306

Practical Classics (UK) - - CONTENTS -

Twenty-five years on, are these the next gen­er­a­tion of fam­ily-friendly clas­sics?

Friend of PC and 306 owner Bob­bie Pryor is a de­voted fan of the Pug. ‘I sup­pose peo­ple might think that we Ra­dio 2 peo­ple drive lux­ury or per­for­mance cars but, while that’s (mostly!) not true, I do like a few driv­ing thrills. There is lit­tle, in my per­sonal view, that comes close to the Peu­geot 306!’

Hav­ing owned five 306s in the past 17 years, Bob­bie reck­ons it’s down to the de­sign. ‘The 306 some­how feels just right in ev­ery way. It is as if you’re a part of the car when you’re driv­ing one and on oc­ca­sion like you’re on a crazy horse at a full speed gal­lop down the beach! Yet at the same time the 306 is prac­ti­cal, eco­nom­i­cal and comfy when used as an ev­ery­day ve­hi­cle.

‘Cur­rent trans­port is a turbo diesel model – but I think the pur­chase of a GTI-6 is long over­due!’
