Overview

"A litle car with a big character."

Exterior and Interior

This super-mini from Peugeot is well built with excellent all-round visibility. The seats are well designed with a very nice half leather covering - smart and classy but not too ostentatious. Like a lot of newer cars the headlamps and rear light clusters are mounted high to keep them out of the way should the worst happen.

Performance and Economy

The 107 is meant for short commutes or running around town; these are the journeys it excels at. No, you don't get pushed into your seat with the acceleration but the car is nimble and gets to 60mph quickly enough for normal day to day driving. Economy is a big issue these days with the price of fuel but the 107 literally sips fuel with an average return of around 60mpg.

Like to Drive

This is not a sports car by any means but it holds the road extremely well and has no vices such as over/under-steer. 107's come into their own in those busy places that we all know - supermarket car parks etc. with the automatically varying power steering adjusting to how you are driving and, with its small turning radius it is a dream to park. The suspension when driving is quick to react and soaks up the bumps with ease. <

Faults and Repairs

None to speak of yet. I have only had the car a short time and its not showing any problems. The engine beneath the 107's curves is made by Toyota (same as used in the Aygo) so there is the reassurance of a tough engine from a company known for building almost indestructible products.
