Peugeot 207: The Economy Car
|   Wednesday, August 01, 2012
Peugeot or PSA is a French car manufacturer most notably the 2nd largest car maker in Europe and 6th largest in the world which is not a meager feat to say the least. The Peugeot group has two top of the line products Citroen and Peugeot. According to the Peugeot officials they are going to push this new model Peugeot 207 hatchback in the automotive market.

This car has two looks to it number one that this hatchback model looks like a larger city car but the catch is that it is smaller than a family sized car.
This car is primarily focused for the markets of Asia. This car is similar in reference to Citroen C3 which was launched back in 2006. This new model of Peugeot has many new tweaks to it majorly the facelift of the car has been changed along with powerful new tech engine and new front and rear LED headlights. There are lots sayings in the automobile market that this car is originally being an upgrade to Peugeot 206 which was made extinct by the PSA in 2010 except in Europe in which it is sold under the ghost name of 207+.

The Peugeot 207 has clearly beaten its previous ancestor with dashing new looks of the exterior and improved interior along with the powerful engine boasting 1.4 L petrol engine along with the variant which has a 1.4 HDI diesel engine. The engine has the capability of multi point fuel injection that produces a cool power of 70 bhp and a maximum impressive torque of 118 NM at the average rate of 3300 RPM. The other variant of this car is more impressive with the average torque of 160 Nm at the rate of 1750 rpm.

These two variants come with 5 gear transmission gear box. The Peugeot goes at the maximum velocity of 153 kmph which is very good for its type of a medium sized car. The car has an ample boot space and is comfortable along the shoes of the driver as well. The car has better mileage in terms of fuel use with 17 km on the highway and 14km in the urban areas.

The car also features an impressive safety option like ABS (anti lock braking system), EBD (electronic Brake force distribution) in support with the rear drum brakes and an emergency assistance for the brakes along with disc brakes which are ventilated.

McPherson strut is present along the suspension system which is independent along with dampers (hydraulic) and springs (helical) and the maximum tank capacity of the fuel standing at 50 liters.

The one thing that is pegging this beautiful car back is the air conditioning system of this car which is not automatic and some of the Euro safety features of this car are also absent which is an agonizing pity for the Asian customers of this company whereas the similar model in Europe has all the required handsome features in it. As said earlier the is an ample room for leg space in the front and back as well but the space for the shoulders is a bit miser which is rather unsettling for the driver as the driver has to shift the gears.
