There are three 1.6-litre engines. The 153bhp turbocharged petrol engine is smooth and flexible, with an even spread of ready power throughout the rev range. The naturally-aspirated 1.6 is slightly less sparky, but strong enough for most. The 110bhp diesel is sweet and quiet, but short of real guts, so it needs revving to make quick progress.
Peugeot 207 Coupe Cabriolet ride & handling
The steering is light at low speeds, but weights up well when you’re going quicker. Roof up, the 207 turns into corners crisply and grips well, even though the ride can feel a little too firm at times. Things don't deteriorate too much when you drop the roof, either.
Peugeot 207 Coupe Cabriolet refinement
With the roof up, there's very little engine noise when cruising; you need to rev the engines hard before they start to grate. Only coarser road surfaces are noticeable in the cabin, but there's considerable buffeting from the wind around the top of the windows.
