Peugeot’s new economical estate – the 207 SW

The outgoing Peugeot 207 SW is one of the most economical estates you can buy, and now a new one will be on sale in July.

There are already over 58,000 207s already on UK roads and the 207 is the best selling car in Europe (as at May 2007).

With
a full length “Cielo” glass panoramic roof and an innovative rear seat
folding mechanism, Peugeot says that the 207 SW will appeal to
customers with a “full and active lifestyle”.

Sharing
the same wheelbase as the 207 five door hatchback but with an increased
length of 119 mm and 38 mm extra height, the 207 SW provides more rear
headroom and interior space. This extra length also creates a larger
rear load space of 428 litres (310 litres for the 207 Hatchback) and
with the rear seats folded, 1433 litres.

It
will be available at launch with four engine options: two HDi diesels,
1.6 litre 90 bhp and 1.6 litre 110 bhp and two petrol engines developed
as part of the co-operation with the BMW group. The first petrol engine
option is an all new 1.4 litre VTi 95 bhp engine and the second the
current 1.6 litre VTi 120 bhp engine found in the 207 CC and 207
hatchback ranges.

All the engines will
be fitted with a manual five speed gearbox with ratios selected to
match the individual engine characteristics. The 1.6 litre VTi 120 bhp
petrol engine is also available with an automatic gearbox.

The 207 SW will be available in two trim levels, S and Sport.

The S HDi 90 and the Sport HDi 90 both return 60.1mpg combined and emit 125g/km CO2.

The range starts from only £11,340 on-the-road.
