Europe's top selling small hatchback, the Peugeot 207, is now even 'greener' with the introduction of the new Peugeot 207 Economique and Economique + which emit only 99g/km of CO2.
In 2008, one in every six new cars sold that emit less than 120 g/km of CO2 was a Peugeot. Peugeot hold the protection of the environment as a key design strength in all its vehicles and is continuously developing them to reduce their emissions to the lowest possible level.
First shown at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show, the new Peugeot 207 Economique reflects this commitment and uses the latest technology to reduce CO2 emissions to just 99g.
The new Peugeot 207 Economique will go on sale in the UK in October 2009 and will be available in two trim levels, Economique and Economique +. It will be competitively priced with the entry-level Peugeot 207 Economique three-door model starting at an on-the-road-price of £12,995.00.
The standard specification will include: Unique aerodynamic styling pack, 15" steel wheels with 'Aero' trims, black instrument dials, lion grey interior door handles, chrome insert to gear knob, black body-side mouldings, black door handles, electric air inlet flap, ABS, EBFD, EBA, passenger seat height adjustment, steering column adjustable for reach and rake, adjustable front head restraints, 2/3 - 1/3 split folding rear seat, electric front windows - 'one touch' for the driver, three rear three-point inertia seat belts, remote control central locking with deadlocks, side airbags, passenger airbag, driver airbag, and power steering.
The Peugeot 207 Economique + adds air-conditioning, electrically operated / heated door mirrors and a trip computer to the standard specification of the Economique version.
The Peugeot 207 Economique is powered by Peugeot’s already legendary 1.6 litre HDi diesel engine. The fuel consumption and emissions of the engine have been reduced to the lowest levels possible by specially developed engine management software and the addition of an EGR heat exchanger to cool the re-injected exhaust gases. It is fitted with a specially modified five-speed manual gearbox with a higher final drive ratio than the standard Peugeot 207 hatchback.Published 20 July 2009
