The Peugeot 306 range was introduced in the UK in the Spring of 1993. Originally, the 306 was available with a choice of 1.4 litre (1360 cc), 1.6 litre (1587 cc) and 1.8 litre (1761 cc) petrol engines. All engines are derived from the well-proven TU and XU series engines, and are of four-cylinder overhead camshaft design, mounted transversely and inclined to the rear, with the transmission mounted on the left-hand side.
In 1993, the 1.9 litre (1905 cc) diesel engine was introduced into the range. The engine is from the well-proven XUD series, with both non-turbo and turbo versions of the engine being available. And in early 1994, a three-door version was introduced and the 2.0 litre (1998 cc) petrol engine models were brought into the range. In the summer of 1994, the 306 Cabriolet was introduced. To complete the range, in the Autumn, the four-door Sedan (Saloon) versions of most models were introduced.
