Peugeot 1007

W e loved the Peugeot 106 very much. It was and light, accelerated briskly and handsomely. When it passed Peugeot replaced it with not one but 2 – the 107 is actually a Toyota-engineered car targeting at an even lower segment than 106. sales target of only units a year, it is obviously not the of Peugeot.

Instead, the limelight on 1007. The one-double-o-seven not only the mould of Peugeot’s 3-digit system, it is also a revolutionary claimed the French company.

What is so revolutionary? a few years Pininfarina came up an idea to the increasingly critical parking in overcrowded cities. Mini are more friendly to tight space, but when the doors are for passenger access, they require considerable width. why Pininfarina designed a mini car an electric sliding door at side.

By touching a button, the big can slide back and reveal a big for both front and rear to get off. It engages no more than the mirror already thus the car can slip into tight parking space. car became Peugeot 1007

Disappointingly, today Pininfarina is no capable of designing beautiful – do you remember the 406 Coupe. or the 205 and 405. it is really unbelievable the design house of these cars can give us a car like – it has wrong proportion and details. In short, it looks Yes, its shape might be primarily by functions, but still it be prettier, couldn’t it?

Despite of the unusual form, the of 1007 comes directly Citroen C2 / C3. This is a frill-free thrill-free) platform using and torsion-beam suspensions, electric steering and the familiar powertrains PSA’s part pool. mechanical point of view it is boring.

However, it saves for PSA and saves my time.

From the you can see 1007 is very tall at 1.62 meter, its roof is than the eye level of some The question is who need so much There is no such thing as too headroom, as long as it does not other things. However, tell us there is no free in the world.

The 1007 pays the price in It is almost 200 kg heavier than 206 blame to the added weight of doors), blunting its acceleration. It has center of gravity than mini cars, generating body roll in cornering leads to incapable handling.

don’t expect a smooth normally associated with cars, because that have required a suspension so soft that cannot its excessive height.

The point is: Peugeot 1007 is by no a driver’s car. It is a more a car, a car to take the kids to and to shop a whole weekend’s at supermarket. Its 4-seat cabin people comfortably when the seats slide to the rearmost or carry a lot of luggage when it forth or simply flip up.

It is basically a mini MPV.

But it is seen as a mini MPV, is so revolutionary then? the American put sliding doors at their big many years ago. / Pininfarina just copied the to mini cars. It is nothing amazing or praising, especially if you the drawbacks it created.
