I have been driving the 107 now for a few weeks as a company car and i have to say i have been impressed so far. The mpg is high at almost 60, the acceleration is as good as it needs to be and the space inside the car is sufficient - with the seats folded down a trip to b&q isn't out of the question!
This is the first car we have had that has not had problems, the ride is siff but it is not as bad as a 3 series BMW on runflats, in fact it is OK, mine is a 2tronic which takes a bit of getting use to, has features which they don't mention in the handbook, (if you blip the accelerator it will hold the lowest gear for about 20secs after you blip the acceletor again/hit the redline, which gives you engine braking downhill without needing to touch the selector, also I do it before a corner. (I am quite immature for my age)
The backseat is fine for two adults, though I have n't bothered trying to fit my road bike in the back, it might go but I don't want to mark the trim (you can get various roofbars). Front seats are comfy did 390miles in the car the other afternoon averaging 47mpg, have had 58mpg but this involved quite a lot of maturity. In fact a trip computer is the main thing I miss, has everything else you need, thouugh I paid extra for curtain airbags, ac and rev counter.
To shift the selector when stationery you MUST have the ignition on and foot on brake pedal, this also applies for the starter, soon becomes second nature but for the first month it could be frustrating.
Overall a great car for going anywhere in, just depends how much you want to take with you whether its for you, am just surfing fo some roofbars now lol.
This is a basic and simple car. However, it exudes quality and is well thought out. No luxury here. With this in mind, it is hard to fault as a second car or city run-around.
Looks and economy are superb. Equipment is spot on, though limited, but do you really need more? It is nippy and fun to drive. It is tiny yet can carry 4 people with good access on the five door.
Who cares about the small boot, put the shopping at the back.
My main gripe is the harsh ride yet it leans too much in corners.
However, it is engineered by Toyota and should prove very reliable. (That's where the harsh ride comes from, Peugeot should have tweaked it to their usual excellent compromise on comfort and handling).
Minor niggles include: head rests can't be removed (which prevents from loading long/wide flat packed items). The rear seats releases can only be accessed from the boot. The standard speakers are tinny and thin sounding. The glove box lid is an option.
Compare Peugeot's unique 107 Urban offering to Toyota Aygo and the Citroen C1 and you'll find that this is the better deal/compromise.
The 107 outsells the C1 by 3-to-1 and also outsells the Aygo.
This is a superb package and a funky one at that. Overall, I love it!
My wife has now owned her new Citrus Yellow five-door for one week, having bought it from Mike Thompson (Stafford) Ltd with the help of Whatcar Target Price helpline.
The deal secured by the Target Price help line was second to none, paying just under £6900 including air-conditioning, a better deal than I was able to achieve in Kent.
The car is one fantastic little car, although large inside. The handling is light and precise (our previous car was a Ford Ka), performance is lively and the driving experience is pure fun.
I have not yet been able to calculate fuel consumption, having only covered 300 miles to date, but if the ongoing performance matches the friendly service of Mike Thompson (Stafford) Ltd and our driving enjoyment to day, we have bought a little winner.
This little 'big car' is one hell of a head turner, and a pure joy to drive.
