The latest addition to the 207 range from Peugeot is the 207 Touring model which will go on sale in Australia from November 2007.

The 207 Touring is a spacious addition to the 207 lineup, offering increased versatility and practicality, with a luggage capacity of 428 litres – 118 more than the 207 hatch.

The spaciousness of the Touring model is not only improved through its size – now 119mm longer and 55mm higher than the hatch – but also via the unique panoramic glass roof which increases internal brightness, and features an electrically-operated sun blind which limits the brightness as required.

A clever rear parcel shelf conceals luggage from the outside yet allows easy access from the rear seats thanks to the handle used to fold the first flap and can be folded away at the bottom of the boot when carrying bulky items and can withstand a weight of 100kg or behind the front seats for heavier items.

At launch, the 207 Touring will be offered with a choice of two engines, a turbo charged 1.6 litre petrol engine or a 1.6 HDi turbo- diesel engine.

The 1.6-litre 16v petrol engine (EP6) produces maximum power of 88kW and 160 Nm at 4250 rpm mated exclusively to an automatic gearbox featuring Porsche Tiptronic sequential control.

The 1.6-litre disel engine produces 80kW and 240 Nm at 1750 rpm, however it can achieve 260 Nm temporarily in the top three gears thanks to the overboost function.

A leather wrapped steering wheel and gear knob, white instrument dials, chrome door handles, six speaker MP3 compatible sound system and trademark Peugeot front grill complete the driving experience.
