2013 Peugeot 107

Submitted by on June 5, 2013 – 8:49 amNo Comment

2013 Peugeot 107 2What we have here, then, is the facelifted Peugeot 107. The 107, along with its Aygo and C1 siblings, has been around since  2005, so it was due a spruce-up. The bottom line is that if you liked the previous Peugeot 107, you’ll like this revised one because it is mechanically identical.

The front bumper is now a little more aggressive, replacing the smiley mouth with a gaping grille that gives the car a passing resemblance to a puffer fish, but its testament to the original car that the basic shape still retains a fresh aesthetic appeal and doesn’t appear dated. There are also some nice styling touches such as the neatly integrated rear door on the five-door version.

So the 107 Urban is available as either a three-door or five-door car. All variants share the same 998cc engine producing 68bhp, with 70lb ft of torque appearing at 3600rpm. Peugeot has tweaked the ECU for this facelift to improve economy slightly – the 107 now returns 62.8mpg on the combined cycle while emitting just 103g/km of CO2, or 61.4mpg/106g/km for the 2-Tronic-equipped five-speed auto version. Auto or manual, however, this is a cheap car to run as it sits comfortably in VED band B.

A new exterior style, subtle and sophisticated

With a completely redesigned front face and unchanged dimensions, the Peugeot 107 adopts the new style of the Peugeot marque, with a look that is both subtle and sophisticated, cut as closely as possible to the mechanics, while retaining its compactness.

The new, more curved bonnet incorporates the new identity of the marque, so the rib of the bonnet which frames the two-tone lion and the number plate repositioned in the centre of the lower front panel hint at its relationship with the 208.

While retaining their shape and their high position, the light units are more refined: at the front, they are extended and adopt a two-tone mask, echoing the colour of the marque emblem situated on the bonnet, whereas at the rear they are adorned with a dark mask thus framing the lamps with a deep ruby colour.

The new radiator grille, composed of honeycomb cells specific to the 107, forms a fine and distinguished mouth, suspended by the body colour that surrounds it.

“It is another interpretation of the floating grille, adapted to the size and architecture of the 107.” Ivo Groen, 107 style manager

The new lower front panel has contact cappings – one on the front face and the other two at the side – both aesthetic and protective, particularly useful in urban driving conditions.

The Peugeot 107 adopts a new visual signature at the lower front panel by means of LED day running lamps that emphasise the side protectors, and – according to the model – foglamps animated by a chromed bead.

All of these style components, designed with the utmost care, associated with a sharp body sill line and new trims, give the 107 a new identity, modern and likeable, combining refinement and a strong and thoroughbred appeal.

Furthermore, the range of colours sees the addition of an exclusive new “Plum” colour, modern and attractive, which matches perfectly with its character.
