Peugeot has released the newest version of its 207 small car with greater personalisation and higher specification levels across the range among the highlights.
The range has been expanded to include the Outdoor – a Touring model available with 1.6-litre petrol and diesel engines.
The entry-level XR is available with two petrol engines: a 65kW/133Nm 1.4-litre teamed with a five-speed manual and an 88kW/160Nm 1.6-litre with the four-speed automatic.
The larger engine is also available in the XT and CC with both transmission modes.
The XT is also available with a 1.6-litre diesel engine which produces 80kW and 240Nm of torque with the manual.
Six airbags are now standard on the XR, while cruise control comes on all 1.6-litre models.
The 207 CC Turbo features a 110kW/240Nm 1.6-litre turbocharged petrol engine and the GTi retains its version of the same engine producing 128kW and 240Nm.
Adding a local flavour to the line-up, the standard 15-inch wheel covers on the XR and XT are called “Brisbane”, the optional 16s “Canberra” and the standard 17-inch eight-spoke alloys on the GTi “Melbourne”.
Other upgrades include standard dual-zone climate control, glass roof, rear privacy glass and electrochrome rear-view mirror on the XT, and a Bluetooth/USB package on the GTi which is optional on the XT, CC and Touring Outdoor models.
Visually the new 207 has a redesigned lower front panel with circular fog lights, widening the appearance of the car.
At the rear Peugeot has incorporated LEDs into the taillights while the lower bumper panel is now body-colour on the hatch and CC models equipped with parking assist.
Prices for the new Peugeot 207 start at $22,490 for the XR 1.4-litre manual (not including dealer delivery or statutory charges).
