The Verve is a relatively new trim and is part of Peugeot's 'DriveSexy' Special Edition campaign, where the company urges us to be to nice to each other on the road whilst, at the same time, having fun. In terms of the Peugeot 107, the Verve level takes all the features of the Urban and adds, air-conditioning, 14-inch alloys, Verve mats and external badges and a rev counter. Unfortunately, the rev counter does look like an afterthought; a single stalk-mounted, circular dial that sticks out from behind the main speedo like a satellite, in a similar manner to the instruments in the MINI but, in both cases, it looks a little odd - or should that be quirky.
There are two new body colours, Mandalin Orange and Electra Blue, to go with the existing Raven Black, Citrus Yellow, laser Red, Carbon Grey and Zircon Grey. Whichever is chosen, the interior is designed to contrast or compliment the outside with the colour carrying over onto the inner door panels.
The Peugeot 107's centre console, set into a deeply curved fascia, also has a quirky non-conformist attitude. The bottom section houses the comfort controls and is made from a translucent plastic with air direction and temperature dials on either side, so they are more like levers sliding over a printed area to select the desired settings. In the centre there's a dial for the fan, which encroaches into the dark main panel. Drivers will take note of its position as the Peugeot 107 has a tendency to steam up in no time at all. Set into the main panel is the chrome-effect audio section, which unfortunately doesn't have fader or balance adjustments - but then it is a small car.
Despite its size, there is a fair amount of rear legroom in the Peugeot 107, certainly enough for most adults to sit comfortably. The front seats are just as firm and comfortable as those in the rear and, in the test car, the driver has the benefit of a rake-adjustable steering column but no height adjustment to his seat.
