Peugeot unveiled a new version of its 107 city car with a completely new face, and upgraded features and engine. This is car is Peugeot’s version of a trio of city cars developed jointly by Peugeot Citroen and Toyota. They are all built on the same platform and are powered by the same engine, but get different designs. The 107’s stylish appeal, along with its accomplished economical three-cylinder petrol engine, has helped Peugeot take a lead in low-CO2 urban motoring, and this is now strengthened further with emissions of just 99 g/km of CO2. New visual changes include revised front bumper, new headlights, and a set of signature LED lights also found on the other models. It also comes with enhanced equipment with an upgraded interior. Peugeot 107 details: The 107’s stylish appeal, along with its accomplished economical three-cylinder petrol engine, has helped Peugeot take a lead in low-CO2 urban motoring, and this is now strengthened further with emissions of just 99 g/km of CO2. The new restyled 107 is instantly recognisable by the changes to the car’s front styling, with a deeper lower front panel with a housing for the front fog lights, LED daytime running lights and a redesigned front bumper. As part of the restyle of the 107 range, there are 3 trim levels on offer which are in line with the naming strategy of other Peugeot range models (Access, Active and Allure). Within these trim levels, features such as Peugeot Connect Bluetooth and USB and LED Daytime running lights are now available for the first time on the 107 range. In addition to the new equipment available, the restyled range also offers better equipment across the range with air conditioning now standard on Active level versions, alloy wheels and rev counter, Peugeot Connect Bluetooth and USB standard on Allure level versions. In line with this restyle, the new 107 adopts a competitive pricing strategy with the range starting from £7,995. Perhaps surprisingly for such a small car, it is the 5-door version (with 59.6% of total sales) that out-sells the 3-door model (40.4%), underlining the 107’s excellent packaging, which makes the most of its interior space and belies its compact wheelbase to provide a vehicle capable of transporting four people in comfort. The Peugeot 107 range also offers even better value than ever; with Peugeot’s innovative Just Add Fuel™ personal finance package, buyers can drive it away with three years’ fully comprehensive insurance (available from 25 years of age), three years’ warranty, three years’ servicing and three years’ roadside assistance, all for a single fixed monthly payment (the Peugeot 107 is zero-rated for vehicle excise duty). Over 650,000 Peugeot 107s have been produced since 2005, and the latest 107 arrives in February 2012.
