Flair Is Standard


PEUGEOT 207 is a small-medium French car from the world's oldest automotive nameplate.

It's substantially larger than the 206 it replaced when launched in Australia in February, 2007. It goes without saying that French flair is a major feature of the 207's body and interior.

Though it's the smallest Peugeot model sold in Australia, it's large enough to cope with a family with pre-teen children. Boot space is pretty good for this class and can be expanded by double-folding the back seats. Peugeot designers are very clever at producing interiors that appear to be more spacious than they really are, so there's no feeling you're travelling in a small car.

Ride comfort is excellent in the French manner and handling is reasonably precise and responsive.

Peugeot 207 was initially sold as three and five-door hatchbacks. A 207CC cabriolet joined the range a few months later, with a Touring station wagon being introduced in October, 2007.

The Peugeot 207CC's roof is fully automatic and can be opened and closed at speeds of up to 10kmh.

It has good space in the front seats but the back seats are strictly for emergencies.

Only small children can be carried, and even then the front occupants will have to move their seats forwards, perhaps to the point of being cramped.

Power for the Peugeot 207 range comes from a variety of petrol and diesel engines.

There are 1.4-litre petrol units in two different formats, one a full-on economy unit with 55kW, the other producing 65kW. A 1.6-litre petrol engine is sold with or without a turbocharger, power and torque outputs are 88kW/ 160Nm, and 110kW/240Nm respectively. Peak torque on the turbo petrol engine begins at an impressively low 1400rpm, then continues all the way to 3500rpm.

The Peugeot 207 turbo diesel HDi is a 1.6-litre with a strong 240 Newton metres under normal conditions, and an additional 20Nm for a few seconds under hard acceleration to make for safer overtaking.

The GTI's power comes from a turbocharged variant of the 1.6-litre engine and peaks at 128kW.

Better still is the impressive torque graph. It reaches 240Nm at a low 1600 rpm and continues at that high level to around 5000 before tapering away. …
