The Peugeot 1007 is a
mini MPVproduced by the French manufacturer Peugeotsince 2004. It is based on the Peugeot 207and Citroën C3platform.
The 1007's unique design features four pillars and two power
sliding doors (as in a large MPV) rather than conventional hinged doors for easier access in cramped spaces and on hills. The car also features user-swappable "Cameleo" interior trim pieces which cost around €250 for a set. Another innovation is the optional "2-Tronic" semi-automatic transmission(now discontinued) which is also used on the CitroenC2, C3 and C3 Pluriel which Citroencalls it The Sensodrive.(though a similar system was used on the Hudson Commodoreof the 1950s, albeit using a vacuum shift), which shares the 206's 1.4 L and 1.6 L petrol engines and 1.4 L and 1.6 L diesel engines. For its size, the 1007 is expensive, with prices around €14,000 / £10,000. EuroNCAPhas awarded the vehicle its second best ever rating for adult occupant safety.Cite web|url=http://www.euroncap.com/tests/peugeot_1007_2005/214.aspx|title=Peugeot 1007|accessdate=2007-06-17|work=euroncap.com]
The 1007 is the first mainstream car from Peugeot to feature a "double zero" number. In English-speaking countries, the name is correctly pronounced "ten-oh-seven". Originally launched with the pronunciation "one-double-oh-seven" and
James Bond-style promotion, Peugeot revised their strategy under pressure from the Bond franchise owners [http://www.telegraph.co.uk/motoring/main.jhtml?xml=/motoring/2005/04/02/mfpeug02.xml] [Top Gear; Season 4 episode 10] . It is also commonly called the "one-thousand-and-seven". In France it is marketed as the "mille-sept".
The Peugeot 1007, along with the
Renault Modus, was defeated by the Honda Jazz in Top Gear's [http://www.bbc.co.uk/topgear/show/episodes/series6episode4.shtml Mothers' roadtest] , with Mrs. Clarkson, Mrs. Hammond and Mrs. May all preferring the Jazz. However the mothers decision was overruled by the presenters themselves who unanimously declared the Modus the winner.
