Full Review: Peugeot 107


City cars are rarely something to stir the soul. Combine their unremarkable looks and performance with the all-too-common platform-sharing in this segment, and it becomes difficult care much about one city car over another. This is a problem that the Peugeot 107 suffers from. It is essentially the same car as both the Citroen C1 and the Toyota Aygo. It even looks pretty much the same as the C1, and isn't quite as good looking as an Aygo.

This is also part of the car's strength though, platform-sharing keeps the cost down, and the 107 is noticeably cheaper than a Smart ForTwo. It is also quite a bit more dignified than the ForTwo, although with city cars, this will always be a close contest. The real advantage of platform sharing with Toyota comes in the form of reliability, in which the 107 is a class leader and the ForTwo does very poorly. You can have a 107 with either three or five doors, although there is only one engine option.

The three-cylinder Toyota engine puts out 68 horsepower, which is fine with just you in the car, but add three friends, turn on the air conditioning and you'll have a difficult time getting up hills. You could expect to have a difficult time getting up to highway speeds as well, but then this is a city car and would be uncomfortable for prolonged periods of highway travel anyway. There are several trim levels, and while you won't call any of them luxurious, there is still a noticeable difference between the high-end models and the stripped-down Urban Lite trim, which lacks air conditioning and even a tachometer.

The high-end trim levels are also slightly nicer than those offered in the other cars using this platform as well, even if the body styling is nothing to write home about.
