The 107 was developed by the B-Zero project of PSA Peugeot Citroen in a joint venture with Toyota; the Citroen C1 and Toyota Aygo are badge engineered variants of each other, the Aygo having more detail differences from the C1 and 107. The three were manufactured at the TPCA assembly joint venture in Kolin.
The 107 is a four-seater available as a three or five-door hatchback, replacing the 106, which were held the production. It shares its rear tail light clusters with the Citroen C1, apart from a different red coloured lens.
the Peugeot 107 received a facelift aligned with revisions to the Citroen C1 and the Toyota Aygo. Aesthetic changes included revised front bumper, interior, and wheel trims. The front fascia received a wider grill.
The placement of the number plate has been moved from the black stripe in the middle of the grill (which now has a chrome style strip running along with it) to underneath the grill itself and two side vents have been added to give the car an updated look. The interior offered more seat fabric choices and revised centre console graphics. The engine which now produces 106 as per kilometre opposed to 109 before and the Standard Combined Urban Cycle fuel economy has been improved from 61 mpg‑imp (4.6 L/100 km; 51 mpg‑US) to 62.8 mpg(4.50 L/100 km; 52.3 mpg).
In the beginning , the 107 received a further facelift with a revised bonnet and front bumper/grille with integrated daytime running lights. The interior received a leather steering wheel and a new gearshift on higher-level trims. The official premiere of the facelift was in the Brussels Motor Show.
However, the 107 should prove to be very reliable, as it was co-developed with Toyota, which has a great reputation for dependability. It uses a Toyota engine and many other components is manufacturer.
There was only ever one engine to choose from – a 1.0-litre, three- petrol that produced a whole 67bhp. You were never going to any land speed records with one of these, but it proved to be a reliable engine – unsurprising, given its Toyota origins – with enough oomph for driving around town and the foray onto an A-road or even the motorway (if you were feeling brave).
In keeping with its limited power – 0-62mph took around 14 seconds – the 107 was a very to-run car, returning around 66mpg and emitting just 99g/km of CO2, making it free to tax. That small engine also means the 107 is one of the cars to insure – particularly for young drivers.
You can have your 107 in a choice of four trim levels – Access, Active, Allure and Envy – none of which come particularly well equipped, but you should be able to find one on the used market that’ll fit your requirements.
Thanks to the 107’s popularity as a new car, used prices have remained pretty strong.
Practicality isn’t one of the 107’s strong points, however. The boot is tiny and there’s not much space in the back seats for adults. There are some in terms of safety.
