The 207 Convertible Coupe from Peugeot was introduced in 2006 as a replacement for the almost vintage 206 CC version. The 207 is based on the platform of Peugeot's sister company Citroen's C3, and is produced in their home plant in Poissy, France as well as a new production unit the Peugeot- Citroen recently opened in Slovakia.
Given a major external and internal facelift in the summer of 2009, the 2012 Peugeot 207 Convertible Coupe now boasts a new black matt grille, oversized LED headlights, sleeker front and rear bumpers and more chrome embellishments all around, which are finished off by LED rear lights, creating an overall round and robust look. To say the car attracts attention is an understatement. It is one that demands a second glance from everyone it passes on the road. One feature that really sets the 207 Coupe ahead of its competition is its revolutionary retractable roof. All that is required to convert from a hard top to an open top is the touch of a button, and in just 25 seconds, you feel the wind in your hair.
The Peugeot 207 Convertible Coupe draws its power from a choice of three petrol engine configurations. A1.6-liter engine is paired up with either a manual or automatic transmission that produces 120 horsepower, or a turbo engine is available that boosts performance to160 horsepower. There is also a 1.6-liter diesel-turbo engine version of the 207 Convertible available as well.
The Peugeot 207 Convertible Coupe's Macpherson strut suspension for the front and torsion beam suspension for the rear is complemented by front and rear stabilizer bars to strike a competent balance between a soft and firm ride.
Those who get the chance to take a look at the Peugeot 207 Convertible Coupe for the first time are often surprised at how substantial it actually is. In fact, it is larger than its predecessor, measuring in at 160 inches long by 70 inches wide by 56 tall. Front seat passengers will enjoy travelling in the 207 CC; however, back seat adult passengers will definitely find the space a little inadequate to get fully comfortable.
With the roof up, the Peugeot 207 Convertible Coupe can fit quite a lot into its trunk, with up to 32 cubic feet available. However, with the roof down and folded away inside the trunk, then the space available plummets to just 11.7 cubic feet. Although this is a drastic difference, it is still plenty of room for groceries.
