As the ’07 plated cars hit UK roads last month, Peugeot enjoyed a strong sales success particularly with their small cars (107, 1007, 206 and 207) where sales rose by 27%, compared with March 2006. This growth was helped by a strong performance from the new 207, which was joined by the new 207 Coupé Cabriolet for the first time last month.
Since its launch in July 2006, Peugeot’s 207 has been an instant success story with sales in the period January-March 2007 of 17,600 cars, with 1,000 of those being the new 207 CC. This success has also made the 207 one of the UK’s top ten best selling cars.
UK motorists took advantage of some early spring sunshine in March as Peugeot sold 2500 Coupé Cabriolet models across its range (206 CC, 207 CC, 307 CC). Peugeot was again out in front as the UK’s favourite supplier of convertible cars.
Orders for the new 207 CC are coming in at a fast rate, with the most popular model so far being the 207 CC Sport 120 in Aluminium paintwork and black trim. The 120 model is powered by the new VTi 1.6-litre petrol engine, co-developed between PSA Peugeot Citroen and the BMW Group.
In addition to this fantastic and fresh product line up, Peugeot customers will also benefit from some very attractive offers as summer approaches. One year’s free insurance is available on the new 207 CC* and the sporty 207 GT (petrol and diesel variants*) whilst the trendy and highly popular 107 Urban is available from just £5,990 on the road.
With these great offers and lots of exciting new cars and light commercial vehicles it’s time to spring into action and get down to the nearest Peugeot dealer this April.
* Offer excludes sales in Northern Ireland, age restrictions apply: 207 GT 21+ and 207 CC 25+.Published 10 April 2007
