They are all different trim levels, body types and engine specifications.

Verve will be the entry level with the lowest spec
SW is the Sport Wagon - read estate version
GTi & VTi will probably be the sportier versions with a better trim level
HDi is a diesel engine
CC I think is the cabriolet coupe

So what is Ubran and S is there any differents?

What is 8V mean? 75bhp? and 16v mean? 90bhp so what is better for a car? with a 1.4 engine

One that i don't know is the road tax for a peugeot 207 S 1.4 16V 90bhp? i was told it is 135.00 a year then someone told me it's 170.00 a year now i am confused even more?

Most manufacturers seem to use 'S' as entry level 'GTI' as sporty trim level and some posh word like 'elegance' or 'Ghia' as the top level other than that they just release a "limited Edition" with a name that they think will help sell more cars at that time. If memory serves me correctly renault released and MTV version of the Clio a couple of years back as everybody was into the MTV awards etc it just looked like a bogo version with some MTV stickers on the side.:confused: I would suggest that if you are looking for a new car tell the dealer what level of trim you want and they will advise which car to go for as sometimes the larger the car the more kit you get as standard, or if you are looking to buy used then read the adverts for the spec as people are constantly adding to the spec levels themselves as they can save money doing it themselves. I for example bought the Aux in lead for my car and got it activated cost me a total of £60 but i'd bet as a dealer option it would have cost more and my neighbour added an arm rest to his Nissan duke for £100 as he bought the part and fitted it himself it was a £250 optional added extra :eek:

Don't see why not, I assume that Silverlakes is a breakers? if so when you get the bumper pay a little extra and get the loom, relays and switches etc etc and if you come across any issues im sure someone on here will be happy to help :thumb:

to be honest looking at those figures all you need to know is this:

1) If you can afford high road tax get a GTi
2) if you can't afford high road tax get a HDi

My 307 1.6 HDI 90 cost £55 to tax for 6 months so for 12 months it would be £100.

A 207 1.4 HDI is £30 a year tax while a 1.4 petrol is £170 a year tax.

The diesel is 70BHP while the petrol is 90BHP. Bit of difference in the emissions which bumps up the road tax nearly 600%

In Ireland we get none of these trim badges. It only seems to be UK.
Seems you lot like sporty trim levels and sparkly badges.

yep, it makes little sense to pick a small petrol engine over a small diesel engine these days for economy reasons

any idea what the more important torque figures are on those engines, tbh I doubt anybody can feel the difference between a 70bhp car and a 90bhp car anyway :lol:
