The panels fitted well, the paint finish was good and the interior looked as though it would stand up to family life.

What We Liked
  • The Tardis sized interior
  • The high level of standard equipment
  • The standard safety gear and NCAP rating
  • The overall packaging
  • And of course the doors, which are more than a novelty
What We Disliked
  • It is more of a city car than an out of town cruiser
What We'd Like To See
  • It pretty much has it all, a big car in a small package
Build Quality

The panels fitted well, the paint finish was good and the interior looked as though it would stand up to family life. The electric sliding doors occasionally got a little confused and wouldn’t always shut but I think that was down to driver error. In the interests of safety the doors can be manually opened and closed, should the motors fail.

Value For Money

No longer do you have to make the annual trip to your local Peugeot dealer to have your 1007 serviced, it can rest at home for up to two years or 20,000 miles. The car is backed up with a 3 year / 60,000 mile warranty, two years unlimited. The diesel 1007 is also fairly cheap to insure being in group 3E. We were also impressed with the fuel economy with the 1007 returning on average around 60 mpg on a combined cycle.

Conclusion

We had our reservations but these were soon put to rest, we have never been so smitten by a small car before but the Peugeot 1007 can be called revolutionary. We really grew to like the 1007 and always felt quite pleased to get back into it. It may not be the most dynamic of cars, but it is practical and easy to live with. If you have any reservations then take one for test drive, we think you will be impressed.
