- 207 Verve gets two new engines
- Three new colours also available
- Prices start at £12,331
Peugeot is making its 207 Verve available with two new engines and three new colours next year.
The new paint colours – Aluminium, Shark Grey and Moroccan Red – join the current Flamenco Red and Onyx Black.
The car will also come with 1.4 VTi petrol and 1.6 HDi diesel engines, as well as the existing 1.4-litre petrol and diesel engines.
Both new versions of the car hit 60mph in less than 13 seconds, and the new 94bhp petrol engine averages 47.8mpg and emits 140g/km CO2 – better than the existing 74bhp unit.
The diesel, meanwhile, averages 64.2mpg and emits just 117g/km of CO2, meaning an annual road tax bill of just £35.
Equipment and prices
As before, the Verve is available in both three- and five-door bodies, with standard equipment including driver, passenger and side airbags, remote central locking, a CD player and alloy wheels.
It also has Peugeot’s Connect USB Bluetooth system that allows a phone or MP3 player to be connected to the car and operated through the steering wheel-mounted controls.
Prices for the Verve range start at £12,331, with the new petrol model costing from £12,772 and the diesel £13,895.
