    My car

    Not a bad little car. It feels very well put together, and is a hushed and fairly stable ride. It's a bit hesitant to turn in to sharp corners though, and performance is rather insipid, with wheezy low down pull, exactly what I didn't expect from a modern turbodiesel.

    The real problem is that it's a little car with a medium sized car price tag. After my test drive, I asked the salesman why I shouldn't go and buy a Citroen Picasso for the same price, with much the same equipment, performance and running costs (and none of the reliability worries that come with a new-ish model), but with about 75% more internal volume. He couldn't give me an answer, so that's exactly what I did.

    My car

    I currently hire the 207SE in my role as a driving instructor. It is a beautiful drive overall, and all my pupils improved their driving within one hour of using it. The power steering is excellent and comfort in the cabin combined with ability to adjust to personal requirement spot on. While I will be looking across the range before I finally purchase my new car in February, it will in my opinion take a lot to beat this. My final choice though will be probably the 90bhp model for the ocassional need to pull away.

    My car

    I've bought my 207 late August and I'm still quite impressed by the road handling and cabin noise. The dasboard quality is above average whilst the cd controls neatly placed behind the wheel are very comfortable. Electrical side mirrors are comfortable but foldable ones are even better(extra option) Maltese roads are not smooth and when driving at low speeds certain potholes are felt quite vividly however on longer smoother journeys the ride is excellent. Fuel economy is decent but to overtake you need to push pedal and gear quite hard. I was tempted by the Clio but the 207 offered more. Among the superminis the 207 is certainly one with a well deserved gold medal.

    My car

    I have just purchased and taken delivery of this car (my model is a 1.4 hdi s model with air con) and I absolutely love it! Its fantastic on fuel economy, i have managed 67.7 mpg on a combination of different speed roads (60, 40, 30), the engine is amazingly quiet and it is a dream to drive. Only drawback I have found is the corners of the windscreen - the metal is quite chunky and can restrict viewing however this is not really that much of a drawback.

    I would definitely recommend buying this car - I looked at both this car and the new clio when I was looking and fell in love with the 207 straight after driving it - the difference in pleasure for driving is astounding and it is far better quality for less cash!
