The Peugeot 107 is a compact five-door hatchback and soon to be available for the market in February. It's cute and fairly roomy in the inside.

Under the hood is a 3 cylinder 998cc Petrol engine rated 68hp. Combined with the weight of 1190kg, the car can go pretty speedy as it feels like it's actually have more than 68hp. The 107 comes with a 5 speed "2 Tronic" with economy and manual modes transmission. As far as engine noise is concerned, this car is is surprisingly quiet for its class. All of these thanks to the redesigned sound insulation of the passenger compartment which improve noise insulation and reduce vibrations.
One of the highlights of the 107 is the 4 star rating for Euro NCAP Safety. The 107 is fully equipped with safety features such as Cornering Stability Control (CSC), Anti lock Braking system (ABS), Electronic Brake Force Distribution (EBD), 4 Airbags and Reinforcement bars and impact absorbers in front doors.

Brunei, January 2011 - The new Peugeot 107 puts the groove back into urban living. With its lively and sparkly personality, you’ll rediscover the pleasure of driving in the city.
Looking good is key for the svelte 107 and remains a strong decisive factor for potential owners. Its’ fun and youthful appearance, multiple body colours and cute-shaped headlamps light up the roads as well as its occupants.
Good things come in small packages, as the saying goes. And it’s apparent in the trusty Peugeot 107! With a robust yet fuel efficient engine, the 107 is mobility personified. Its’ handling and low running costs, an important and distinctive criteria of choice in its segment, together with its stylish appearance and affordable purchase price, result in a user satisfaction level way above the market average. Not to mention, its low carbon footprint!
The new Peugeot 107 brings you more of its key benefits, features and specifications.
Combining aesthetics, personality and high technology, the new Peugeot 107 was clearly designed to take you places!
The new Peugeot 107 has lost none of its sparkling appeal and continues to express ‘cool’ and ‘energetic’ finesse. Nevertheless, it has evolved stylistically with a new front-end style that reflects a sharper and fuller personality.
The new profile of the lower front panel has more substance and robustness.
Like other Peugeot range models, the number plate is repositioned in the lower section and features a redesign of the contours of an air intake, now featuring a cross-link grille.
This new lower panel incorporates side vents complete with grille and a decorative two-part insert. An original and highly contemporary refinement radiates from this design with a wide chrome insert that accentuates the new bumper capping.
The characteristic profile of the 107 benefits from the lower front panel and the new 14” Cordouan wheel trims styled with a seven-spoke design, reinforcing the car’s distinctive vitality.
At the rear, the style of the 107 continues to display an attractive aspect with its dark glass tailgate/rear windscreen separating the angled contours of the rear lights. To bolster its urban credentials, the 107 protects itself with a wraparound rear bumper.
Enhancing ride comfort, sound insulation of the passenger compartment has been redesigned to improve noise insulation and reduce vibrations:
- The new design of the rear parcel shelf help to reduce noise entering the rear of the car.
- New soundproofing bonded to the structure of the front floor and a new damper pulley that drives engine accessories to improve the acoustics and levels of vibration at certain frequencies of petrol engine operation.
Safety features include:
• 4 Airbags – These provide unparelled side and front impact protection for both driver and front passenger.
• Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS), Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD) and Cornering Stability Control (CSC)
Awarded 4 Euro NCAP safety stars due to its design, safety equipment and easily mastered road holding capabilities, the 107 ensures a peace of mind for its occupants.
