How It Drove - Performance
There is only one engine available a 1.0 litre, three-cylinder petrol and two transmission choices a 5-speed manual and an electronically controlled 2-Tronic with the clutch and gear selection being managed by a computer - although you can manually change gear, should you wish. We chose the 5-speed manual, which undoubtedly will be the most popular choice.
Peugeot quote a top speed of 100 mph and the 0-62 mph dash can be made in 14.2 seconds. It produces 68 bhp @ 6000 rpm and delivers 70 lb ft worth of torque at 3600 rpm. The combined fuel consumption figure is quoted as 61.4 mpg, which is extremely good if you can achieve it. The CO2 emission level is amongst the lowest at a 'healthy-ish' 109 g/km.
The 1.0 litre (998cc), 3 cylinder engine is perfectly adequate around town and the odd longer trip, but after a while it does drone on and the lack of power becomes apparent. Out in traffic on fast ‘A’ roads and Motorways you do have to work the 5-speed gearbox to keep up, but I don’t think you could expect much more.
So really the Peugeot 107 is a town car / light commuting tool.
How It Drove - Ride and Handling
Again around town, the Peugeot 107 is excellent, both nimble and nippy. It does what is expected of it, but you are never going to be able to push it around like a hot hatchback but it does feel safe and totally predictable.
The ride borders on the hard side and you do notice that poorer road surfaces are transmitted through the cabin. We felt the speed variable electric power steering was well weighted and easy to manoeuvre.
