I was the owner of a 207 5dr Urban which was only a year old until I was involved in a nasty accident. The airbags and seatbelts quite possibly saved mine and my 2 year old daughters lives. The impact was at 60mph and the protection from the car was incredible. Protection is obviously so important and so is the overall look of a car and the 207 is top of the list for me. I am currently going through the process of buying a replacement 207 (I am upgrading to the S 95bhp model as I can afford to now) and can't praise the whole package of the car enough.
I've had the 207 for over twelve months now and I have to say that I'm very impressed with it. The car is quiet both on the motorway and around town, indeed the only time you'll get any noise on the motorway is if you really put your foot down. In addition to this, the 207 also posts good figures in terms of fuel economy.
As previous reviewers have noted the cabin has a germanic level of quality and if, like me, you're over six foot tall you won't feel uncomfortable as the cabin is quite spacious in terms of headroom and legroom. Overall the car is well put together and has a solid feel to it, which is something that did surprise me given the reputation that Peugeot have had in the past.
There are one or two minor quibbles, which relate to the gearbox (the gear change can, on occasion, be notchy) and the fact that the car can feel a little slow when moving off from a stationary position. However, none of this can detract from the pleasure that I've derived from owning the car and I have to say that I would certainly look to get another Peugeot after this.
This 207 is my 1st Peugeot, and certainly wont be my last, very comfortable, and even though its only the 90 bhp still very quick. It has been out nearly 2 years and still gets heads turning. My previous car was a 53 plate Clio 1.5 Dci and this is a much better car than the Clio on so many levels. Interior quality is on par with its german equivalents, and space is ample. To make it even better only £35 Road Tax, all round a brilliant car.
the reliability of this car has been terrible. has had a brake servo, head gasket and now an engine replaced @ 35000 miles. will not have done this mileage before warranty runs out and peugeot will not stand over it past that point.i use the car in a driving school and reliability is a big factor in that. i would not consider buying another peugeot ever again.
