Peugeot 207 Road Test

The £14,745, test car came also arrived fitted with some of the optional extras, such as metallic paint (£350), colour sat-nav, which is packaged with radio/CD, GSM phone, a 5-disc CD changer and built in air-freshener for £2,070.

The £14,745, test car came also arrived fitted with some of the optional extras, such as metallic paint (£350), colour sat-nav, which is packaged with radio/CD, GSM phone, a 5-disc CD changer and built in air-freshener for £2,070. Also added was a black full-leather interior (£450) in place of the standard part leather upholstery.

The fascia comprises a mix of differing textures in a clean and stylish layout. Despite the variances in finishes, it manages to look complete. In the test car, the fascia was black and had a smooth area just inside the windscreen, which reflects badly in bright sunshine, occasionally blinding the driver.

The centre console houses the audio system and comfort controls and sits neatly below the curve of the upper dash-board. Above is a hooded recess, which contains the central air vents and the 7-inch colour screen for sat-nav, phone and other functions.

Moving across, the driver has a rake and reach-adjustable steering wheel and both passenger and driver benefit from height-adjustable sports seats.

In the rear of the cabin, there’s enough room for three adults, with just about enough legroom. The models above Sport or SE level have a knee-well built into the back of the front seats for extra comfort. The rear seats have a 60:40 split and fold function, which extends the boot capacity from 310-litres to a maximum of 1,195-litres. If folding isn’t enough, the rear seat can be easily removed. The load platform is almost level with the boot lip, which makes the addition of a cargo net essential in order to prevent the shopping escaping or boxes sliding around.

Almost invisible from the outside and well camouflaged from within is the panoramic Cielo glass roof with sliding interior shutters. This is available as an optional extra on the Sport and standard on the SE and GT. The cabin is already airy and the large expanse of glass makes it even better.
