    My car

    I was after a diesel supermini, with sporty looks, a decent drive and plenty of space. I also had to have five doors. I looked at the Vauxhall Corsa and Peugeot 207.

    The Corsa was more comfortable and I liked the engine. The interior was tasteful and I had plenty of space. The problems were the gearbox, first of all - it’s possibly the worst I have ever come across, but my main problem was that the five-door version looks horrible. I like the look of the three-door and I wish you can have a five-door looking like that.

    I was looking at the SXi with air-conditioning and the total price with metallic paint was £12,970. I got the price to £12,600 but the salesman was reluctant to offer any more.

    I then went for a look at the Peugeot 207. The looks are striking, but it wasn't as pretty as the old 206. I went for a test drive and liked the ride and handling, the engine was smooth and had lots of torque. The interior was quite nice. I liked the airy feeling and the comfy driving position, something I never thought I would say about a Peugeot. The stereo and air-conditioning controls were a bit old fashioned but nonetheless worked well.

    Now it came to prices. I was still unsure whether to go for the Vauxhall or for the Peugeot. The list price is £12,595. I also wanted Iron Grey paint (£350) and full-length glass roof (£400). I got a 207 1.6 HDi 90 Sport 5dr with these extras for £11,750. Bargain!

    Peugeot is back on form with the 207.

    My car

    I had test-driven a Seat and was looking at the new Vauxhall Corsa, but as soon as I saw the Peugeot 207 and test-drove it, I knew it was my perfect partner!

    It is very quiet drive - you don't even know the engine is on. Steering is light, but becomes more heavy at high speeds, so you feel in more control.

    This is a fantastic car and I can't wait for it to be delivered so I can show it off.

    My car

    I have used this car for two months, and it was supplied by hire company.

    The ride and general handling is of a good standard. In the cabin, you have all the bells and whistles you want. I have found it rather difficult to achieve a very comfortable driving position and the heavy rake on the front door pillar means that, when exiting or entering the cabin, you'll get the odd bump on the head if you're a tall person, (if, like me, you like a high driving positon).

    The little 1.4 lump works well enough and is comparable with most cars of this capacity. I found the engine gets a little noisy once the revs go over 3800rpm, but generally this is a good run-around.

    My biggest critisism lies with the access to the power plant via a tiny bonnet. As a new or late used car, the 207 is a good machine, but in my opinion if you tend to hold onto your cars for many years, I think you could end up with some expensive bills due to poor engine access.

    My car

    I spent some shopping round to find a new car and test drove a Fiesta, Renault, SEAT etc... This is my 4th Peugeot and it is excellent. I bought on Passprt and got a great rate and the dealer matched the target price easily! It is great to drive and loads of room inside. Fuel Ecomony could be better but it looks great! If I could change one thinng it would be to have a MP3 player connection which is available on a 107!!! I would buy one over any other small car on the market, it is outstanding.
