As small cars go the 1007 is very unusual. It was the first car to come with two electric front sliding doors, in the place of conventional opening doors.

Summary

Parkers Rating:

2.5 out of 5

As small cars go the 1007 is very unusual. It was the first car to come with two electric front sliding doors, in the place of conventional opening doors. This means getting in and out when parked in even the narrowest of spaces, is much easier. It also has a stylish interior with interchangeable trim panels. Despite the small dimensions it actually has four seats, but the rear two offer limited space so are only really suitable for kids. More disappointingly, it's not as easy to drive in town as you'd expect and all the engines offered lack performance. However, it's certainly different and although expensive as a new buy, the 1007 is proving to be much better value on the used market, with temptingly low prices.

 THE DOOR'S AND THE STEERING. PERFECT! I BELIEVE PEUGEOT IDEA WAS A SMALL CAR FOR THE TOWN AND TO BE EASY TO PARK. THEY HAVE DONE IT! AND ALSO DRIVES VERY WELL FOR A SMALL CAR AT HIGHWAYS TOO.
