Peugeot city car gets a facelift

COVENTRY: Peugeot will be unveiling the facelifted 107 next month, featuring a stylish ‘new face’, improved fuel economy, lower CO2 emissions and enhanced equipment with an upgraded interior.

The 107’s stylish appeal, along with its economical three-cylinder petrol engine, has helped Peugeot take a lead in low-CO2 urban motoring, and this is now strengthened further with emissions of just 99 g/km of CO2.

The car is a product of a joint development with Citroen and Toyota and should compete in the same space as VW's ultra-compact Up! city car.

It comes with a 998cc engine making 68bhp at 6,000rpm and 93Nm at 3,600rpm. With a top speed of 160kph, it goes from 0-100kph in 14.2s. It's fitted with a 5-speed manual transmission.

The restyled 107 is recognisable by the changes to the car’s front styling, with a deeper lower front panel that has a housing for the front fog lights, LED daytime running lights and a redesigned front bumper.

It now offers better equipment across the range with air conditioning now standard on Active level versions, alloy wheels and rev counter, Peugeot Connect Bluetooth and USB standard on Allure level versions.

The range starts selling from 9,650 euros (RM39,164).

According to Peugeot UK, the 5-door version out-sells the 3-door model, underlining the 107’s packaging, which makes the most of its interior space and belies its compact wheelbase to provide a vehicle capable of transporting four people in comfort.

Over 650,000 Peugeot 107s have been produced since 2005.
