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.
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.
The Peugeot 207 1.6 hdi 90 bhp model has been the cheapest car to run that I have had. For a start the tax is negligible as it is in the same Co2 band as a Toyota Prius and I've only got a vague recollection of what a petrol station looks like. It is however initially rather expensive at around £12,000. In my opinion I think that the styling looks stunning, especially in black and Peugeot really do a good black (onyx) while the interior exudes quality (I have no rattles or squeaks) and the stereo is first rate. The drive is sluggish initially but quickly picks up through the gears. The car really holds its own on the motorway helped along with the diesels low revs and handling is better than the sports car that I've just got rid of. As for the cars downsides, there aren't any at the moment but there were unfortunately downsides with my dealers honesty and integrity and I'm not looking forward to having much to do with them again. But who likes car dealers anyway.
While my Peugeot 607 went into the dealership for a service I had the 207 as a courtsey car. On first impressions the exterior looked fresh and new, but on the inside not a lot inspired me. It had the 1.4 90 bhp engine, which blew other cars away at the lights but 1st gear didnt have any pull,2nd and 3rd were ok, however. Fuel consumption wasnt very good either but the car had only done 2000 miles, so maybe that will improve as the engine wears.The interior quality was ok but the doors sounded tinny and thin. The gearbox was good though, which suprised me because all the Peugeots I have owned have sloppy changes. The specifacation was alright, it had remote locking, air con and elec windows. My 11 year old daughter struggled to get in the back though. I wouldnt buy a 207, I would look at a polo or jazz as they offer what the 207 does but with other advantages aswell. The new 150 turbo looks good,though
