What's the used Peugeot 1007 hatchback like?

Many cars in the supermini market are very similar in look and ability. That can't be said of the Peugeot 1007. It uses MPV-style electric sliding doors to make it easier to get in and out, especially in tight parking spaces. It's an attractive gimmick, but in reality, while it does help in a tight spot, access to the rear is actually harder than in five-door rivals.

The other problem is weight. The 1007 is extremely heavy, and this means performance suffers. To make matters worse, the suspension is stiff-ish to stop the hefty car wallowing in corners, and that makes the ride too choppy over rough surfaces.

Cabin space is pretty good, but other competitors provide much more. Some of the materials used look a bit cheap, but they should be durable.

All versions get air-con and a CD player, and safety is well catered for, as proved by a five-star Euro NCAP score.
