Car reviews - Peugeot - 207 - CC 1.6 Turbo

Overview

Peugeot replaces the very successful 206 CC with the even better 207 convertible

Peugeot logo4 Jan 2008

THE Peugeot 207 CC replaces the pioneering 206 and is a giant leap forward in safety, refinement, quality, driver appeal and comfort. It looks good and handles better, too. But the tin-top convertible weighs a lot, only offers five speeds and is not the performance leader that its direct-injection twin-scroll turbocharged specification suggests. Demographically, females are overwhelmingly the biggest buyers for this sort of car, but even girls still wanna have fun. So does the top-line 207 CC 1.6 Turbo deliver?
Model release date: 1 July 2007 to 1 September 2012

THIS car has inspired a handful of imitators, including some – namely the Nissan Micra C+C and the Ford StreetKa Convertible – that we don’t see in Australia. But it doesn’t mean that the ground-breaking Peugeot 206 CC was perfect far from it. Sticking roof mechanisms, a wobbly body, iffy quality and not-very-sparkling performance from a 80kW/147Nm (82kW from 2005’s facelift) 1.6-litre twin-cam four-cylinder engine (in four-speed auto or – from 2004 – five-speed manual gearbox guise) saw to that. Even the ‘sporty’ 100kW/190Nm 2.0-litre twin-cam unit from the equally lukewarm 206 GTI hatch didn’t stir enthusiasts. But many people (especially women) went mad for it. Hence the visually very similar 207 CC.
