307 concept may go into production

A PEUGEOT 307 inspired by the 206 Coupe Cabriolet will be one of Peugeot's concept cars at the Paris Motor Show, and there are strong hints that the car will enter production.

The 307 CC has a steel folding roof that disappears into an enclosed space at the rear of the car. Peugeot says the car will take four adults comfortably, as the CC is 12cm longer than the 307 hatchback. An extended rear overhang creates space for the automatic folding roof and additional boot space. The car is almost 10cm lower than the 307 saloon.

A Peugeot spokesman said: 'We have stopped production of the 306 Cabriolet, and we would be mad not to replace it with the 307 CC.'

Sister company Citroen's new addition to the C3 range, the Pluriel, will also appear at the show. The manufacturer claims it is a unique development for multi-purpose, all season driving.

The Pluriel is built on the same platform as the C3 saloon and the prime selling point of the new car is its ability to be changed from a hard-top into a cabriolet, known as the Pluriel Spider.

The rear seats can also be folded flat and the boot opens downwards, creating a flat loading area and storage space, which Citroen calls the Pluriel Spider Pick-up.
