Apart from the Sat-Nav, I liked the 207 GT.

The air-freshener is just one of the options available and adds £70 to the price but the nice small also comes bundled with the £1,670, colour sat-nav package along with radio/CD, GSM phone and an integrated 5-disk, CD autochanger. The same package with JBL HiFi costs £2,070. Perhaps it was having a bad day but the very time I needed help from the navigation system, it let me down. Correction; it took so long spooling information that I gave up in frustration and consulted a good old-fashioned paper map instead.

Moving swiftly on, the test car featured another optional extra in the form of black, leather-clad seats at a reasonable £450. Those in the front are sports-styled for extra support and both have height adjustment. For the driver, there is a rake and reach-adjustable steering wheel, an aluminium gear-knob and, as befits the GT badge, white instrument dials, which are easily read.

In the back, the rear passengers have just about enough legroom providing the people in the front aren’t too tall. The seats are comfortable with push-down head restraints. Getting in and out of the back is fairly easy and doesn’t require the agility of a gymnast. These seats also have a 60:40 split and fold operation for when extra luggage space is required.

On the outside, the GT is distinguished from the rest of the range by body-coloured side mouldings, door handles and a sports front with a grey grille, while the body-coloured, electrically-heated and folding door mirrors, front fogs and chrome exhaust trim are featured on some of the others as well.

Apart from the Sat-Nav, I liked the 207 GT. It is very driveable and easy to live with but with another version on the way, people with a passion for performance might want to wait a while.
