Peugeot 107

The Peugeot 107 is a city car produced by the French automaker Peugeot since summer 2004.

The 107 was developed by the B-Zero project of Peugeot and Citroën in a joint-venture with Toyota; the Citroën C1 and Toyota Aygo are badge engineered versions of the same car, although the Aygo has more detail differences than the C1. All three are built at the new facilities of the Toyota Peugeot Citroën Automobile Czech joint-venture in the city of Kolin, Czech Republic. It is a four-seater available as a three or five-door hatchback. The 107 replaces the 106, which ceased production at the end of 2003 after 12 years.

So far the 107 has proved to be quite popular with British buyers, where it competes with the older Ford Ka.

Trim levels

  • The most basic and cheapest 107 available is the 'Urban Lite'. Lacking the accessories of higher trim levels, it features manual wind up windows, unpainted wing mirrors, no door protectors and two airbags. It also lacks a rev counter and air conditioning. In France, the 'Urban Lite' is simply known as the 'Urban'.
  • The 'Urban' is considered the most popular trim level for the 107 range. More options are available such as an optional rev counter or air conditioning. It also has side air bags, door protectors, colour coded mirrors, remote central locking and electric windows. In France, the 'Urban' is called the 'Trendy'.
  • An 'Urban Move' model was equipped as standard with air conditioning, a rev counter and metallic paint. The Move is available in Zircon Grey and Raven Black. The interior which features Matrix Red Cloth adds to the exclusivity of the Move. This model was updated in 2008 and now features light blue material on the seats as well as on part of the interiors such as around the air vents and speedometer.
  • A 'Sport XS' trim level was also offered but was deleted from the range in February 2008. It came in a range of four colours with corresponding body stripes and mirror colours (Diamond White with red stripes, Raven Black with red stripes, Laser Red with white stripes and Zircon Grey with black stripes), alloy wheels, sports exhaust, spoilers on the front bumper and red interior highlights as standard. In 2008, a 'Sport' trim replaced the Sport XS trim.
