    My car

    This is a cracking little car - it's what the Mini remake should have been. They have reduced cost where is does not really matter yet kept in everything you actually want.

    I went for an Urban Move which gives you air-con, red trim, a rev counter and metallic paint. Go look at the C1 and Aygo as well and play each dealer off against each other. You can get a great price as long as you don`t care which one you get (they are 95% the same car!)

    The Toyota involvement means reliability should be good. The engine is surprisingly nippy and has no problems keeping up with traffic on the motorway. The ride is firm, yet the gearbox is nice and smooth - overall, it's a really fun drive that puts a smile on your face.

    The car cost next to nothing to insure, run and tax and does its bit for the environment. Highly recommend for anyone who does not need the space of a larger car.

    My car

    I have been driving a 107 the last couple of days as a courtesy car after writing off my mum's Fiesta (doh!) So although I am a bit of a racer I have to say this car is not bad to drive even if it looks a bit dumpy. It's quite a laugh around corners however the steering could do with a bit more feel, and I was surprised how quick it goes with the little 1.0 litre engine. I actually though it was allright at higher speeds out of town too. The skinny tyres don't do it any favours, but then if you are looking to buy one of these you're probably not going to be fussy over how good a drivers car it is like I am...

    The 107 feels reasonably solid however certain things such as the pedals and gearstick hint at the car's low price. The omission of a rev counter seems ridiculous to me even if its a standard model, and why anyone should have to pay extra for a proper glove box is beyond me. In fact I'm yet to find anywhere in the car to hide valuables (under the seats????) which is a bit of an issue I think.

    Overall though I can see how this car could be a good cheap runaround if that's what you need it for.

    My car

    We bought a 107 five-door manual in March 2007 - it came in red and with air-con, glovebox lid, floor mats, alarm and rear speaker shelf.

    We got a great deal for our Citroen trade-in from our local Peugeot dealer.

    We were told by the dealer when we placed the order that the alarm was factory-fit which turned out to be untrue.

    There were some imperfections/scratches with the paint on the nearside rear door, and after this being presented to us as fixed, it was actually worse than before with paint runs near the window. It took two attempts in the end for them to put this right but they gave us another 107 while this was being repainted.

    We have now done over 6000 miles of trouble-free motoring.

    It is a great-looking little car which will carry four adults, average 60mpg and now, after the recent budget, only cost £35 per year on road tax.

    It's great around town - the turning circle is exellent, it's quick away from the lights, holds the road very well and will cruise on the motorway without complaint.

    The rear speaker shelf is a good extra and makes the stereo sound much better than basic one.

    The downside is that the glove box lid should be standard, and the boot has no light and rather small, but it's fine for a few bags of shopping.

    It's the best fun car for not a lot of money.

    My car

    I have recently purchased an Urban Move in raven black, the car is for my wife to commute to work and to do the odd shop and school run.(the urban move has metallic paint, air-con, side airbags, red trim, Rev counter etc... its far from standard) Before taking delivery I was a little apprehensive about the size and quality of the vehicle, but all of those fears are long gone.

    The car is really well put together, cheap to run, £38 tax!, fun to drive, plenty of power even on the motorway(even with the Aircon on)

    For the money (under 7K on the road) I think it would be difficult to really critiscise this car in any way. Sure you can see the parts they have taken cost out, but they have done it in way that preserves the overall feeling of quality and value.

    Well done Peugeot!!!
