France, and also Europe, have undertaken to develop the biofuel option with ambitious objectives in the short term: to encourage the use of biofuels as from now, in order to reduce the proportion of fossil fuels used. To achieve this, a new fuel called superethanol (E85), consisting of a mixture of 15 % lead-free petrol and 85 % agricultural ethanol, is progressively being made available at service stations all over France. The distribution of this fuel at competitive prices for customers is now possible thanks to exemption from a portion of the taxes on petrol.
The 307CC follows on the heels of the 206CC - the first affordable convertible with a metal folding roof (previously only Mercedes-Benz and Lexus had them). It’s a nifty selling point, but performance and handling suffer because of the added weight. If you’re torn between a 206CC or a 307CC then the decision must come from consideration for your passengers - you can get adults in the back of a 307. Equipment levels are quite generous, and a fully loaded one will feel like a lot of car for the money when compared to convertible rivals from executive manufacturers.
