207 Reviews

Peugeot's 207 range of cars has been produced by the French carmaker since 2003. A small family 3-door or 5-door hatchback, as well as a 5-door estate and a 2-door coupe cabriolet make up the Peugeot 207 range.
The Peugeot 207 is a popular model with UK buyers, but did not score particular well in the JD Power customer satisfaction survey conducted last year.  The car polled in 90th place in the league table of cars with a score of 77.1%, some way short of the 79.4% which made up the industry average score.
The general consensus is that the Peugeot 207 is a good all-round car but without being outstanding – a case of being a jack of all trades but a master of none.  The ride is refined and the handling sharp and responsive, but without being class-leading.  The Peugeot 207 does have the looks, and its styling is very smart.  It is a handsome looking car.  It is also safe, with reviews highlighting its strong performance in Euro NCAP safety testing.
Many reviewers point to the price as being a little high when compared to its rivals, especially as the level of standard equipment is unremarkable.  On hatchback versions many road testers reported that the rear legroom was cramped compared to other cars in its class.
The 207SW, the 5-door estate model in the range, has received compliments for its storage capacity and flexibility, although when the 7-seater optional extra is chosen the rear two seats are especially cramped and boot space severely comprised.
The 207CC has been complimented on its looks and design, but these compliments have been offset by negative comments on its build quality, equipment levels, and feelings that fuel economy figures for the petrol-powered models are disappointing.
