PEUGEOT 107 1.0 Urban 5dr (Review date: 8th February '11)
Practical & economical, with 5 doors you get good access front and rear. Well fitted, a/c is a useful option. Easy to park and in yellow stands out - good for safety. Boot is quite small but it's a small car. Driving with 4 adults is possible but the engine struggles on hills. Ok with up to 3 or 2 children in the back. good visibility & controls. Bad points - all trivial but only one door light (drivers door) no temperature gauge. About the most economical you can get and low depreciation. To be recommended

PEUGEOT 107 1.0 Urban 3dr (Review date: 5th February '11)
I have recently bought myself a lovely little yellow 107, am throughly enjoying every minute of it!
Its great on fuel, ive worked out £7-8 is doing 70 odd miles, and thats with me driving 80 mph most days to work! Its loads more spacious internally then i thought it would be, my friend got in today and was shocked at the space she had at the front.
Its got more guts then expected as well, not really fast but absolutely fine for motorway driving which i was worried about. The boot size has got me a few giggles but is fine for a handbag and weeks shopping.
Overall am very hapy with my little car and definately made the correct choice :)

PEUGEOT 107 1.0 Urban Move 3dr (Review date: 13th January '11)
In 2008 I finally accepted that my trusty fifteen-year old MR2 had to go, due to the cylinder head gasket blowing as I was on my way to a wedding a hundred miles away! As I sat waiting for the RAC and my friend to finish playing golf so I could borrow his car, I decided that reliability was now my priority and that the only way forward was a brand new car. I decided the 107 was the car I wanted, and mentally prepared for the comments of my friends, 'nice chicken chaser' and 'love the rollerskate' were two of the kinder statements. I ordered my car with a few extras such as air con, alarm, alloy wheels and I still had a bit spare for additional audio speakers. These were fitted to the rear parcel shelf which should really be re-classified as a envelope shelf due to its minute dimensions. This covers the boot area which can easily hold a sports bag and two pints of milk, and made my MR2's boot look cavernous. However, the interior of the 107 is surprisingly spacious and I found that I have plenty of headroom. The interior styling is simple but modern, with nice trim. The seats are comfortable enough, even for long journeys. My only complaint is that when it is sunny, the patterned dashboard reflects onto the windshield and affects visibility.Reliability was a major concern for me, previous experiences left me with the impression that the French were not just rubbish at playing rugby in 'English' conditions, but also building cars. However I have had no problems at all.Where this vehicle really scores is running costs, or lack of them. It sips the fuel even when you put your foot down, which there is no point in doing anyway as the 107 is certainly not built to compete at Le Mans. A years tax costs £20, insurance is equally cheap and most importantly you can drive around with a smug 'I care about the environment' grin.
Finally, the driving experience. It gets you from A to B. Handles well considering it has tyres which would not look out of place on a Raleigh Chopper ,and parking is a doddle.So overall, apart from the sarcastic comments of my friends and colleagues and the minor niggles I have outlined, I really have no complaints about this vehicles as it gives me what I want - value for money and economy.
Why I love My Peugeot 107 XS
PEUGEOT 107 1.0 Sport XS 3dr (Review date: 13th January '11)
First, this 'little' car is not for everyone. It lacks creature comforts - no electric mirrors, air-con (available as option), has limited steering wheel and seat adjustment, a tiny boot. But apart from this short list I love my pug! Growing up a 'proper man's car' would have been a BMW 5 series. There’s a Range Rover Sport, Jeep Cherokee and Mercedes E class in my direct family, and even a Bentley and an Audi Q7 in the extended family. But given where I live I wouldn't swap any of them my Pug 107.
Virtually identical to the Toyota Aygo and Citroen C1 - all three built in the same east European factory by Toyota - the MAIN factor that makes this car so ideal is it's low weight. At under 900kg it's 1 ltr 3 cyl. engine has no problem with the daily regime, where 95% of the driving is in 30 mph zones. Its lack of weight means it has the same power-to-weight ratio, and is as fast (at least up to 50mph), as my previous car, a 1.4 litre Peugeot 207. 50-70 mph is no problem, but 70-80 mph on the motorway has to be planned ahead, much like driving a Morris Minor! BUT when it took only one tank (35 litres, £30 back then) to Leeds AND BACK, 4-up, loaded with Christmas goodies, it more than made up for any shortfalls!
Reliability? It has done 55 000 miles in 3 years, needed a replacement water pump and starter motor (under warranty), but the servicing and normal wear and tear - tyres, brake pads - have been affordable. With road tax at £20 a year, group 1 insurance, running it doesn't cause tears (unlike the Range Rover sport).
I could go on about the virtues of this fabulous little car. In red with white stripes and dinky alloys, it even looks cute. The rear seats individually flop down with ease if I have more than half-a-dozen carrier bags. Both seats down it's helped friends move house, carried large bags of manure, heavy loads of video equipment. Basically, hasn't failed to meet a single challenge so far!
Its not perfect for everyone. In the past I had VW Passatt Estates, both for business and family requirements. Now, without a family in tow, the Peugeot 107, much like a 4-wheel scooter, is perfect for the urban environment in which it has spent 98% of its 55 000 miles. Love it!
PEUGEOT 107 1.0 Urban Lite 3dr (Review date: 5th January '11)
Purchased this car from new on '58' plate.
Can only say positive things about it.
Has now covered 22K miles with no problems.
After nearly 2.5 years have only had to replace front brake pads and front tyres.
Great for city driving and parking-can fit in the smallest places!
Safe and precise handling and being so light suprisingly fast acceleration from a standing start.
Occasional travel on motorway has presented no problems and
can keep up with flow of traffic in all lanes when required.
In the current economic climate fuel consumption is the major attraction with this car-at times I have filled up the tank for £35.00 and this has lasted me for between 2-3 weeks.
Obviously if you are looking for a car with a large amount of space and spend hours on the motorway you will need to look elsewhere.
Great little car, ideal for low tax & insurance
PEUGEOT 107 1.0 Urban 3dr (Review date: 15th December '10)
This car is really aimed at people who want high fuel economy with little running costs. The tax is just £30 a year and its in insurance group 1, so it is the cheapest you will get. On average I get about 55mpg from the 1.0l petrol engine. Although its small, with just 3 cylinders, its still quick. It's not too noisy, and thrives in cities and busy commutes. Even though I'm queueing while going to work everyday, I still get over 50mpg (and this is on regular fuel). It's also very easy to park, and tackles 3 point turns at ease.
The car is basic though. A glove box and rev counter is an optional extra. I have the 'urban' model and this does come with remote central locking which is a bonus. It comes with just the essentials, but the styling is funky, and there is a surprising amount of room in the car. I can fit my weekly shopping in the boot, and the car isn't as small as it looks. The seats fold down individually in the back as well for extra room.
Although this car suits my needs and is cheap to run, after one year of owning it (2006 with 17k), the clutch and exhaust needed replacing. I've never worn out clutches on other cars I've owned and was surprised when this one went. So the car has cost me around £400 in repairs in my first year of owning, which is disappointing on a newish car with such low mileage.
My advice would be to look around and make sure you're getting the best deal on these little cars. The Citreon C1 and Toyota Aygo are the alternatives which offer different levels of spec. They should be built the same way, but with different styling on the exterior.
PEUGEOT 107 1.0 Urban 5dr 2-Tronic (Review date: 13th December '10)
I bought my first 107 after much research as I came up to retirement and needed reliability and economy from my motoring. I was prepared to buy any model of the 107, or the Citroen C1 or the Toyota Aygo, but went for the Peugeot because that was the one that was most immediately available in auto with AC. I had that first one for nearly five years and in that time the only things that needed renewing were tyres and windscreen wipers. I decided to change it for a model with five doors as our dog is old and needs lifting in an out, and the original car had only three doors. This one has been just as reliable as the first.
Everyone is amazed at the space inside this "Noddy car" and although it doesn't suit my GT owning daughter, who twitches hr big toe to accelerate, rather than actually putting her foot down, most are amazed at its nippiness even fully loaded. When the back seats are down, it is cavernous and to date I have carried a fridge-freezer, tallboy, and an armchair in it, although not all at the same time!
It isn't as good on petrol as the figures say, but that is quite possibly due to the fact that I live in an area where there are very few roads without a gradient. Having said that, now I am retired and don't do so many miles, I fill it up less than once a month! I once worked out that I get about 40 miles to the gallon.
I was the first person in UK to order the 107, according to my dealer and I loved being one of the first to be seen driving it, but now the number of them on the roads is testament to what a cracking little car it really is.
When my service garage heard I was getting a Peugeot they were scathing, "What! You're swapping Honda for a Peugeot?" but when they saw the quality of the engine and chassis, even they were impressed.
I now use my little car purely for leisure, but my first one travelled 20 miles each way across the moors to work every day for the first 18months and never let me down. I don't mind long journeys in it, it is comfortable enough and doesn't struggle on motorways at all and in the city it's a godsend for parking or doing a u-turn if I've got lost.
I love my 107 and honestly believe it is the best little car there is.
Perfect for a first car!
PEUGEOT 107 1.0 Urban 3dr (Review date: 12th December '10)
I know as well as anyone how difficult choosing a first car can be, with very little experience regarding the industry it can be hard to judge what your getting. But I can honestly say i have no regrets after purchasing this car! It suits everyday life perfectly, its cheap to run, tax and insure which is great when your a student on a budget!! £40 to fill the tank completely and that usually lasts me around a month, based on my everyday use of around 15-20 miles a day. Plenty of space inside, as deceiving as its appearance may be! Iv never had anyone complain they were cramped in the back! The interior is admittedly basic but still nice! Cant complain. Although the engine is small at only 1.0 litre that has never restricted me in the speeds it can reach, i have no problem keeping up with cars twice its engine size on the motorway! I mostly use this car for short journeys, popping around town etc and its perfect for that! Especially easy to park! But i have also done plenty of long distance drives as well, at up to 6 hours, and the car has also performed perfectly throughout these, with fuel lasting very well!!!!
Overall i think this car is very practical for all my needs, with my only complaint being the size of the boot! It is a bit on the small side but thats to be expected with a car this size! Definitely would recommend this car, especially for new drivers as its easy to handle and cheap to run, however would also be perfect for anyone wishing for a car to pop around in, running errands etc! My only advice would be to consider how much boot and storage space your going to need, as the lack of it is the one drawback of this car! It's never let me down so far, love it!
