If you’re looking for a supermini or city car that has striking good looks and lots of innovative, practical features, then the cute Peugeot 1007 is the car for you. It looks like a miniature MPV, complete with electric sliding doors, which makes it really easy to park and great for getting in and out – ideal for the kids.
The 1007 seats four people comfortably and space inside the cabin is more than enough for even the tallest passenger. The rear seats slide forwards and backwards; moved back, there’s loads of legroom. Take the seats out and the boot space increases from 178 to 364 litres so there’s plenty of room for the shopping and more. Plus, if you regularly transport passengers who find it tricky to get in and out of a regular car, the sliding doors make this much easier.
Most models in the range come complete with a decent CD player and air conditioning. The entry-level Dolce model also comes with stability control, remote central locking, curtain airbags, traction control and electric front windows. Upgrade to the Sport trim and you’ll get sporty alloy wheels and climate control. Safety is excellent – the 1007 was awarded the top Euro NCAP rating of five stars, which is impressive for this class.
Running a 1007 won’t break the bank. Servicing costs are low and fuel economy is good – the 1.4 model returns 43.5mpg, the 1.6 model gets you 42.8mpg and if you opt for the diesel you can expect an impressive 60.1mpg. Insurance is cheap too – the eight-valve 1.4 petrol and the diesel engines are group 3, the 16-valve 1.4 is group 4 and the 1.6 is a group 5.
Initially aimed at the younger end of the market, the 1007 is packed full of interesting design features. The Chameleon interior allows you to interchange up to eighteen parts of the interior to different coloured replacements, meaning you can change your style as often as you like! The Some models in the range also feature a full-length glass roof giving the cabin a lovely light and airy feel.
