On the outside, the car now features a redesigned front which gives it a softer visual look. There are also chrome details as well as spectacular new rear lights which now feature LED's on the hatchback and CC models. On the inside the car now has new trims and detailing which place the emphasis on perceived quality, comfort and dynamism. There are also new instrument panel designs with a more modern look and visual appeal.
Under the hood, the 207 benefits from efficient engines with reduced greenhouse gas emissions. The low fuel consumption is optimized not only aerodynamically but also by operation of the engine itself and the rolling resistance of the vehicle, allowing CO2 emissions to be reduced to 99 g/km. the car also features a gear change indicator on manual gearbox models to encourage the driver to drive in a more environmentally efficient way.
With three body shapes, hatchback, SW and CC, and twelve different power-plant options, the new 207 is all set to strengthen the 207's position as Europe's top selling small car, a position it has held for the last two consecutive years, 2007 and 2008. The new 207 range will be launched in August this year.
