Safety and Security
A few years ago the safety equipment that is standard on Peugeot 107 would have only been seen on an expensive executive car. You get anti lock brakes (ABS) with electronic brake force distributor (EBFD) and Cornering Stability Control (CSC).
There are four smart airbags as standard, which include front driver and passenger airbags and side airbags. Our car was fitted with front/rear curtain airbags which are optional (£200), of course they should be standard but it is a rare offering on a city car.
You can switch off the front passenger airbag so that you can fit a child seat in the front. Family owners with young children will like the fact that the two rear seats benefit from child seat ISOFIX fixing points.
Comfort and Refinement
We found the Peugeot 107 quite accommodating bearing in mind its overall size. I did not feel at all claustrophobic with my co-driver, having plenty of shoulder space. We did find the front seats a little bit hard on longer journeys but if you only plan on using the 107 on short journeys they are fine.
Our test car was fitted with the optional (£500) air conditioning system with a pollen filter; it worked very well but obviously if you are on a budget this is an expensive option.
All the controls are within reach and the car is well laid out and the instrumentation is similar to the smart fortwo and is clear and functional. Although if you want a rev counter that will cost you an extra £50.
You do get electric front windows and the mirrors are remote controlled but by levers rather than electrically, so it can be a bit of pain if you share the driving. However, the 107 does have remote central door locking as standard.
