The New Peugeot 207

After having my son I decided that my Peugeot had to be replaced with something more practical (convertibles great for babies… seat, and space for nothing else!). I was to swap for a standard 206 but I went to my Peugeot showroom and saw the new 207 and decided I one of those instead! The new 207 comes in specs S, Urban, SE, Sport, GTI all different standard bits and and engine, trim and colour

After spending some looking at the different specs I on a Sport mainly because I liked the front styling far than the other specs and I a 1.6 petrol engine and the Urban and S don’t have that The Sport comes in either a or five door, I chose the door as I prefer the styling and doors just aren’t for me. In the Sport model you can choose 1.4 16v, 1.6 16v, 1.6HDI 90 or 1.6 HDI 110

I wanted a petrol engine and that could handle motorway journeys so I went for the 1.6

I really didn’t want to get rid of my old car and was set to not my new one but it has won me over. The 207 1.6 Sport is a lovely car with more aggressive than the 206 range. It handles the ride is quite firm, the related power steering is so making manoeuvring easy but you feel in control when at high speeds.

And speaking of speed it isn’t too bad either, it has plenty of go and sits comfortably at 80…..sorry I mean 70 honest! It has a top speed of 121mph and from 0 to 60 in 10.4 seconds to Peugeot. This is despite the that it is heavier than the 206 but Peugeot are using the same

As for the 207 Sports spec and general and pieces it comes well with stuff including:

Front Exterior Styling Black Grill

15 Alloy

Chrome Exhaust Trim

Front Seats

Front Fog

Leather Steering Wheel / Knob with Chrome

Body Coloured Door Handles

ABS with EBFD and EBA

Passenger Airbags


3 Rear 3-point Seatbelts

Peugeot 207

Impact Beams and Door

Tyre Pressure Sensors

Door Locking

All that for that is only if you want car to come in non-metallic blue, red or didn’t so add on an extra Ј350 for paint (also not all specs are available in all colours which me as I had to have my second choice I also got the rather lovely window roof…..add on another which gives the car such a and airy feel (and my son loves starring out of it at the clouds and

But as we all know dealerships are happy to do on new cars so I didn’t actually pay for of those two optional extras. And are plenty of other options you can add on as a leather interior, upgraded with multi disk rain sensitive wipers, diffusers and much more.

The is smart and the trim looks and not cheap plastic. It has cup holders and big door pockets for cd’s, It has a business card holder under the CD player which at I thought was a waste of space, me little drawers to put stuff in any day but I found it handy for putting car tickets in whilst I park the

As I’m a mummy now safety is and this car has a 5 star ENCAP rating for adults and 4 for children that is reassuring. This has airbags everywhere, isofix all manner of assisted braking So a big tick there for me.

The car does everything I need it to and in a car seat (also has isofix in the rear), change bag, shopping on the back seat ease. Fuel consumption is average at about 40mpg on a day and the tank holds 50 litres means I’m not always at the station.

On the negative side of a sport model I would expected some nice door sill trims and but these only come on the GTI It’s got the worlds tiniest compartment only big enough for two of coke. The boot could do being bigger as I’ve had to out the parcel shelf to fit in my pushchair (it is a big system though, a stroller fit with no problems).

No alarm as standard but it’s got and all that stuff.

But after a few with the car I have to say I really it now. I’ve had no performance whatsoever. It looks smart, well and is comfortable to drive.

be keeping this car for a long
