Five Buyer: 1993
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!’
