Peugeot has announced prices for its new 207, on sale from 8th June.
Available as a three or five-door hatchback, the 207 starts at £8995 for the 1.4-litre eight-valve petrol three-door.
That lands it smack in the middle of the battle for supermini sales: Toyota's Yaris starts at the same price, but offers sixteen valves and puts out 23 g/km less CO2 than the 207.
Going further up the range, the cheapest diesel is the 70bhp HDi at £9895. The Toyota Yaris is more expensive here: £10,295 versus £9095 for the cheapest diesel Polo, which is an older and noisier car than the 207; but Fiat wants only £8495 for its talented Grande Punto in entry-level diesel form.
The 207 will be available in five trim levels, rising through £10,295 for the sixteen-valve 1.4-litre with air conditioning to £12,695 for the 110bhp diesel Sport and on to £15,345 for the range-topping diesel GT.
Peugeot points out that the 207's ratings in Euro NCAP are the highest in the class and that the car meets the new European directive for pedestrian impact protection.
