Summary:

Peugeot 207 Coupe Cabriolet is an appealing and affordable car with average driving performance and interior. It falls short of leaving a solid impact on most of the car buyers because of its un-interesting driving. However, it is good value for money.

The Peugeot 207 CC has major rivals among the convertibles family, but it is very unique in that it has a folding solid top instead of a roof made of fabric. This of course should make the 207 CC more expensive, but then buyers have more than just the hard top roof as a reason to prefer it to other cars in its class. With its range of petrol and diesel engines to choose from, you are served up with a great balance of liveliness and comfort when using the convertible.

Power and Performance

With the Peugeot 207 CC, you have three engines: the 110bhp which is rather a quiet engine to use; the aspirated 1.6 is stronger while the 153bhp is a turbocharged petrol engine that is very smooth, flexible and powerful.

While driving at low speeds, the steering is light but then the weights come up when the pace increases. At sharp corners, the car bends well and can actually feel a bit firm sometimes.

Interior & Exterior

The seats of the 207 CC interior have plenty of leg room for both passenger and driver, though the back seats may only have space for kids and probably an adult behind the passenger’s seat.  They can also be made comfortable by adjusting them.

The controls are also neatly laid out well; it takes just 25 sec for the hard top roof to fold into the boot. All models come with alloys, electric windows, air conditioning, a remote central locking etc.

The Peugeot 207 CC adds alluring leather for the steering wheels as well as the seats. The door mirrors are electrically controlled for folding; climate control automatic headlamps for cornering are all available, not forgetting the sensors for rear parking.

Safety and Reliability

All Peugeot 207 CC models have five airbags in addition to the one for the knees of the driver. There are danger lights that show up once the hard brakes are applied, to warn other road users. During a hard crash, roll up bars are also present to lower impact of crash on the car’s passengers; with that the super car has five stars for occupant protection.

You however have to make do without a stability control which is an option in the entry level Active model; however, it is fitted into the Roland Garros and Allure models as standards.

Reliability of the 208 CC is higher than that of the 206, and much more solid when compared to other super cars made by Peugeot.

eBest Cars Verdict

When the Peugeot 207 CC is compared to other convertibles like the MINI and Fiat 500, it may look a bit expensive to buy or maintain as a result of the extra cost of features for refinement and security of the car. However, Peugeot cars always have great value for money spent and so the decision between the three different engine specs now boil down to budget and preference, considering their features and cost of additional refinement.

Peugeot 207 Coupe Cabriolet is an appealing and affordable car with average driving performance and interior. It falls short of leaving a solid impact on most of the car buyers because of its un-interesting driving. However, it is good value for money.
