First seen at the Paris Motor Show in September 2002 as a concept car entitled the ‘Sesame’, three years later in July 2005 the revolutionary Peugeot 1007 was released in the UK.

We have been told that we are not allowed to call the 1007 the one double ‘o’ seven - I cannot think why, so officially it is the one thousand and seven. Top Gear voted it the “Best Small Car” of 2005 and in 2004 Autocar called it the “Idea of the Year”.

The exterior was designed by the Italian styling house Pininfarina, who since 1930 have styled some of the world’s most beautiful cars, including a number of the best loved Ferrari’s. At 3.7 meters long the 1007 is certainly on the compact side but on the other hand it is quite tall at 1.62 meters high. I am not too sure if this is a Mini MPV or a Super Mini, I think that probably it is a City Car with a little more versatility.

Putting the compact dimensions of Peugeot 1007 aside, the key feature over the competition has to be the remote controlled electric front sliding doors. Which although we have seen on large MPV’s like the Peugeot 807, we haven’t seen them on a Compact Car.

We drove the Peugeot 1007 SPORT 1.4-litre HDi to see what all the fuss was about.
