Revised version of the economical, low-CO2 city car is in Peugeot showrooms now

The diminutive three- and five-door hatchbacks have received a refresh to bring them into line with the styling of more recent Peugeots, with the range now consisting of three trim levels: Urban Lite, Urban and top-of-the-range Verve.

As well as a restyled front and rear incoroporating extra chrome detailing, the new-look 107 has low CO2 emissions of 106g/km and an official EU Combined fuel consumption of 62.7mpg (Urban 51.3mpg).

Urban specification features body-coloured items, electric front windows, side airbags and remote central door locking, and the choice of either manual and 2-Tronic (an electronically controlled manual that operates as an automatic) transmission.

Verve trim has, as standard, air conditioning, 14in alloy wheels and a rev counter, and a new Mandalin Orange bodywork colour.

Interior trims have also been refreshed, with a new ‘Code’ trim featuring a silver-grey bead on the seat surrounds. The Urban level retains its predominantly grey ‘City’ mesh trim but also features highlights linked to the vibrant paintwork options.

The 998cc, three-cylinder, 12-valve petrol engine develops 68bhp and is available with a five-speed manual or five-speed automatic transmissions. Headline figures for the manaul version are 51.3mpg Urban, 62.7mpg Combined and 106g/km of CO2. The electronically-controlled manual has an identical Urban economy, with a Combined fuel consumption of 61.4mpg and CO2 emissions of 107g/km.
