Peugeot, already known for having an extensive range of low carbon cars, has added another model to its range. Based on the 207 SW Sport, the 207 SW Outdoor is designed to look like an off-roader, but in reality just retains its standard front wheel drive.
However ground clearance is raised (by 16mm at the front and 21mm at the rear), it has new 16” ‘Outdoor’ alloy wheels, and wheel arch extensions and sill mouldings.
The 207 SW Outdoor will be available with three engine options; two HDi diesels, a 1.6 litre 90 bhp and a 1.6 litre 110 bhp – only this diesel engine gets a diesel particle filter system (DPFS) – and one petrol engine, a 1.6 litre VTi with 120 bhp. All engines come with a manual five speed gearbox.
The Sport Outdoor HDi 90 has the lowest emissions with 125g/km CO2, returning 60.1mpg combined, and costs £14,020. The Sport Outdoor HDi 110 emits 136g/km CO2, manages 54.3mpg, and is priced at £14,740. The petrol model, the 1.6 VTi 120, produces 152g/km CO2, does 44.1mpg, and costs £13,650.
The 207 SW Outdoor will be launched in the UK in December 2007 and will increase the SW range to three models, the S, Sport and Outdoor.
