New powertrain for Peugeot 207

  • New diesel engine and gearbox on 207 range
  • 12.5% more pulling power than previous unit
  • Prices start at £15,645, on sale now

Peugeot has tweaked its 207 range, replacing the original 110bhp diesel power plant for a new Euro 5 112bhp oil burning unit. The five-speed gearbox has also been dropped for an improved six-speed shifter.

The four-cylinder engine has a maximum pulling power of 270Nm at 1,750rpm. This is an increase of 12.5% over the previous unit.

The 207 hatchback will average 61mpg and in SW guise it will return around 60mpg. C02 emissions stand at 119g/km for the hatchback while it creeps up to 124g/km for the SW. Thanks to the low CO2 emissions, the 207 with this 1.6-litre engine comes with a free first year of road tax.

Peugeot has also added some additional kit to the standard specification. This includes dark tinted windows and rear electric windows on the five-door hatchback and SW versions.

Prices start at £15,645 for the HDi 112 hatchback and £17,385 for the SW variant and the cars are on sale now.
