Peugeot 1007

  • A new innovation in small car design
  • Revolutionary electric sliding doors
  • Class leading safety equipment
  • Interior personalisation

The new Peugeot 1007 is a new concept, which will change the way small cars are perceived and experienced – as did the introduction of the hatchback in the early 60s.


The fitment of a single electric sliding door on each side of the vehicle is unique in any segment, particularly on a B segment vehicle. The arrangement offers unparalleled access that is little short of revolutionary. A simple press on the remote control plip and the electric doors slide rearwards, providing unrestricted access, as though no barrier existed between the outside and inside.

When open, the electric doors require only a small lateral clearance, roughly equivalent to that of the door mirrors, thereby enabling the car to be parked in very narrow spaces that are inaccessible to vehicles with traditional doors.


The 1007 offers class leading safety equipment that ensures enhanced impact protection. This includes up to seven airbags, one of which is mounted on the steering column, and, for child protection, Isofix fixtures that comply with the new three-point fixing standard.


The 1007 is a true four seater, but with a truly innovative flexible interior. The two independent rear seats govern the numerous ways in which the 1007 can be used and are an integral feature of the car’s innovative modularity. For example, the interior space can be adapted to seat four people, provide maximum boot space or carry long loads.
