Europe's top selling coupe cabriolet, the Peugeot 207 CC, will be even hotter this summer with the introduction of the new, restyled Peugeot 207 CC. Since its introduction in March 2007, the Peugeot 207 CC has been the coupe cabriolet to be seen in.
The new Peugeot 207 CC will go on sale in the UK in August 2009 and will be available in two trim levels, Sport and GT. It will be competitively priced with the entry-level Sport VTi 120 model starting at an on-the-road-price of £16,695.00.
The New 207 CC in Detail
The front of the new Peugeot 207 CC now has a 'softer' one-piece design, with a redesigned front grille. There is also a greater use of body colour coding and the introduction of circular foglights located at the edges of the lower front panel. The location of the foglights visually helps to widen the look of the car at the front and give the car a new personality. The front grille now also benefits from chrome detailing, as do the foglights and surrounds.
At the rear, the car benefits from new hi-tech rear lights incorporating LED technology, something of a rarity in this market segment. The lower rear bumper panel is now painted in body-colour on all GT versions and Sport versions equipped with rear parking sensors, adding a further touch of distinction to the car's visual identity.
From the side, the new Peugeot 207 CC has a more distinctive profile enhanced by new style alloy wheels; five spoke 16" 'Canberra' alloy wheels on the Sport version and two-tone eight spoke 17" Melbourne alloy wheels on the GT version.
On Sport versions, the standard black side rubbing strips can be replaced by body coloured rubbing strips with chrome detailing as part of the optional Exclusive Pack.
The new Peugeot 207 CC will be available in a range of eight exterior body colours and four different interior trims, two cloth trims (Xavier black cloth and Salsa grey/black cloth) and two leather options (black and Oran pale grey). An integral leather option will also be available on the GT version, which includes a leather trimmed fascia panel, steering wheel, seats and door panels.
A new Gear Shift Indicator (GSI) is available only on the new Peugeot 207 CC VTi manual model fitted with the Euro 5 engine. It helps the driver to adopt a more economical driving style by indicating the optimal gear to be selected, thereby ensuring the lowest possible fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. The indicator is located in the odometer and consists of a rising vertical arrow indicating the best time to change gear. The driver, however, is responsible for following the system's indications.
