What’s new?It’s new bumper to bumper this although it will seem familiar to anyone who knows the But not from the inside, where a new interior of far higher quality this Peugeot close to the of the pack in terms of finish.

The position – an old 206 failing – is good in the too, so there’s hope for

Mechanically the 207 is a mix of old and new.

It rides on a platform, and has new suspension too – MacPherson up front, and a twist beam at the rear, a cost-saving solution may compromise the Peugeot’s manners.

The range of engines is familiar, with a 75bhp 1.4 and running to and 110bhp 1.6s, these all At the end of the year a sophisticated new 1.6 petrol, in collaboration with BMW – which to have done most of the and will use it in the next Mini – appear, in 115bhp, 150bhp and outputs, the last two turbos.

Diesels include a 70bhp 1.4 and 90bhp and 110bhp 1.6 HDis. All drive through five-speed but the new 1.6 petrol will be available a six-speeder.

The question, though, is whether 207 is a whole lot better to drive the 206, and whether it recaptures of the verve of the old 205.

The 207’s cabin is not as colourful as the new can be, but it’s decent place to be. that with pretty refinement, plenty of room up (it’s a little confined in the satisfyingly deft handling and steering (despite the slightly fitment of electric power and you have a car that’s quite too.

I buy one?Like the new Punto and Clio, the 207 has the supermini on plenty of fronts, but in half steps. So it may yet be bettered by the the Renault or the excellent Honda in Autocar’s group test. But it be close. And there’s no question it’s a vastly better car the 206.

Which should make it a safe buy.
