What is it?
This is the facelifted Peugeot 107, the French manufacturer’s popular city car. The car is near identical to the Citroen C1 and Toyota Aygo and has been around since 2005, so it’s time for a spruce-up.
The front bumper is now a little more aggressive, replacing the smiley mouth with a gaping grille that gives the car a passing resemblance to a puffer fish.
But there are also neat styling touches such as the neatly integrated rear door on the five-door version.
What’s it like?
If you liked the previous Peugeot 107, you’ll like this because it is mechanically identical.
Peugeot has tweaked the ECU slightly so that the 1.0-litre three-pot motor now returns 62.7mpg on the combined cycle instead of 61.3mpg – not a big change but an impressive figure nonetheless.
Performance is the same despite an increase of 1bhp to 68bhp (70lb ft of torque), which means that 0-60mph takes 14.2 seconds.
It’s a gutsy little unit, though, and makes a pleasing sound, so nipping around town can be fun.
There is an impressive turning circle and the light steering makes parking easy.
