The driver's treated to a clear and easy-to-use dash and a comfortable driving position. All the important buttons and switches - especially for the heating and the stereo - are easy to reach and simple to use on the move.
The seat adjusts in a number of ways and the steering can be adjusted for height and reach (unlike its predecessor, the 206). You get a much better sense the 207 SW is more of a quality product than the old 206 - the instruments are ringed with chrome, the interior look is softer and it's more comfortable.
All-round visibility is good and there's a pleasant and airy feel - something that can be increased thanks to the standard panoramic sunroof.
Every 207 used to be fitted with a panoramic sunroof, which runs from the top of the windscreen to mid-way through the roof, but only the top Allure trim has this as standard now. It makes for an exceptionally bright interior, though an electric blind is fitted for shade in the summer.
Other aspects that add to Peugeot 207 SW comfort levels are the seats that offer enough support for longer journeys. However, space in the back is modest - there's not enough head or leg room for three adults, but it's fine for a couple of children. The seats are a little higher than in the hatchback for an 'amphitheatre' effect.
It's quiet on the road too, with just a small amount of engine noise at speed, although the 1.4-litre can be noisy when revved.
