Introduction

The 207 has a big job to do. It has to follow Peugeot's best selling cars ever: the 206 and the 205. It has to be loved. Being bigger than a 206 (actually the same size as the old 306), it has to sell for more money. And it has to win hearts and minds of buyers who might otherwise have plumped for the new Clio.

There's no bargain basement 207. Though prices weren't set at the launch they later came in at "from £8,995", which is £1,500 more than the cheapest FIAT Grande Punto. If you want a ‘Two O' for less, the 206 will continue alongside for a while, like the 205 did after the launch of the 106.

At least you get a lot for your money in the base model 207. Dubbed the ‘Urban' it comes equipped with unexpected kit like a switchable passenger airbag, side airbags, remote control central locking with deadlocks, three rear 3-point seatbelts with outer belt force limiters and a comfortable centre rear seat with adequate headroom.
