The 207 CC is a stylish and well equipped small convertible that won't leave you cold in the winter. It uses a fully automatic metal folding roof with no levers or catches to release, so at the push of a button it's a convertible 25 seconds later. Its predecessor, the 206 CC, was plagued with roof problems on early models and lacked refinement.
Luckily, these shortcomings have been addressed and this Peugeot feels well made. It's also good to drive, fun and has decent luggage space. There are two seats in the back, but as they're small and there's little legroom, they're really just for show and only any use as extra luggage space. Lack of space aside the biggest challenge for the Peugeot drop will face is how it compares against the like of the Mazda MX-5 and the Mini Convertible. Read on to find out.
