Peugeot 207 Facelift Details

French manufacturer Peugeot is getting ready to release a facelifted version of the 207 range, bringing with it new trims, new instrument panels and minor exterior body enhancements.

On the outside, the 207 was given a redesigned front, new rear lights which use panels of light emitting diodes (for the hatchback and CC models), as well as new exterior body colors and chrome detailing.

The introduction of the new 207 will also see a range of new standard equipment fitted to the vehicles suppposed to enhance both comfort and safety features of the 207. The range now benefits from Peugeot Connect USB with Bluetooth and in-car entertainment system, one-touch direction indicator function for safe lane changes, remote controlled window closure (hatchback and SW versions), as well as one-touch operation of the driver’s electric window (CC).

Engineers were also involved in the restyling of the 207 range. Their main task was to provide technical solutions for reducing fuel consumption and emissions. Sure, they didn't torn the engines apart, but made all the necessary adjustments for them to eat up less fuel.

The fuel consumption has been optimized by reducing the vehicle's rolling resistance. This in turn brought down CO2 emission levels to 99g/km. Gradually, the 207 will see introduction of Euro5 compliant engines, as well as the introduction of a gear change indicator on manual gearbox models to encourage the driver to drive in a more environmentally efficient way.

As for the new trims and other enhancements, Peugeot say they will come back on the subject the following month. Full details and prices for the revised 207 range will be announced thus in July.
