The Peugeot 1007 is a mini MPV produced by the French manufacturer Peugeot since 2004. It is based on the Peugeot 207 and Citroën C3 platform.
The 1007's unique design features four pillars and two power sliding doors (as in a large MPV) rather than conventional hinged doors for easier access in cramped spaces and on hills. The car also features user-swappable Cameleo interior trim pieces which cost around €250 for a set. Another innovation is the optional "2-Tronic" semi-automatic transmission (now discontinued) which is also used on the Citroën C2, C3 and C3 Pluriel which Citroën calls it The Sensodrive.(though a similar system was used on the Hudson Commodore of the 1950s, albeit using a vacuum shift), which shares the 206's 1.4L and 1.6L petrol engines and 1.4L and 1.6L diesel engines. For its size, the 1007 is expensive, with prices around €14,000 / £10,000. EuroNCAP has awarded the vehicle its second best ever rating for adult occupant safety.
Used Peugeot 1007
The 1007 is the first mainstream car from Peugeot to feature a "double zero" number. In English-speaking countries, the name is marketed with the pronunciation "ten-oh-seven". Originally launched with the pronunciation "one-double-oh-seven" and James Bond-style promotion, Peugeot revised their strategy under pressure from the Bond franchise owners. It is also commonly called the "one-thousand-and-seven". In France it is marketed as the "mille-sept".
The Peugeot 1007, along with the Renault Modus, was defeated by the Honda Jazz in Top Gear's Mothers' roadtest, with Mrs. Clarkson, Mrs. Hammond and Mrs. May all preferring the Jazz. However the mothers' decision was overruled by the presenters themselves who unanimously declared the Modus the winner.
The 1007 was dropped from Peugeot's UK model line up in 2008, although the car is still available in mainland Europe.
