The optional 5 disc CD auto-changer (£230) sits in the glove compartment so unfortunately it does take away some of the storage space.
We found the instrumentation to be very clear and the tactile switchgear easy to operate.
We liked the optional (£550) panoramic twin sunroof, with its twist dial opening control which can be twisted to select the exact opening you require, no need to keep your finger on the button. Only the front roof opens, but the back seat passenger’s benefit from a glass panel which gives the car a sense of airiness. Both panels are protected by blinds to shade occupants from the sun.
The optional 5 disc CD auto-changer (£230) sits in the glove compartment so unfortunately it does take away some of the storage space. We also benefited from the JBL Hi-Fi upgrade at £400 which did sound rather good.
Our test car was also fitted with the optional Satellite Navigation system which at £1650 seems quite expensive. The package includes the 5 disc CD auto-changer and GSM telephone (simply add your own SIM card). You can make and receive telephone calls, and it will even automatically read back text messages to you. The navigation system worked very well and the little man who sits inside the box was quite polite. The phone, navigation and some other features can all be voice controlled, so all you have to say is CD Track 1 - and off the CD player goes.
How It Looks -
The Peugeot 1007 is distinctive and although conceptually a box it is a cheeky little chappie, styled by Pininfarina he is also quite handsome retaining the feline characteristics seen in all Peugeots. Strangely the 15" Gazelle Alloys Wheels, a £400 option reminded me of the wheels I had on my Peugeot 405 back in 1991.
How It Looks - Interior
If you do not like the interior you can customise and change it at will, with eighteen parts being changeable. These include the two fascia panel mats, four air vent covers, two door panel covers, two rear storage covers and eight seat covers. The interior can be transformed in under fifteen minutes. There are twelve different kits designed to supplement the dark blue interior.
