What is it?
Despite the arrival of the 208, the 207 CC lives on for a while yet. Hardly any men buy them, so it's no surprise to find the handling and ride tailored more to comfort than sport.
Although a poor second to the normal 207, the CC does remarkably well considering it's been sawn in half and gained a few stone. The steering is a little lifeless, but Peugeot's reliable chassis set-up makes some amends.
The 207 CC isn't a sportscar, not that many people considering buying one will be under the illusion that it is. Keep in mind what it is that makes a coupe/cabriolet fun and plump for the 112bhp 1.6-litre HDI. 0-62mph in 10.9 seconds is about as fast as you'd want to go in this.
On the inside
There is more room in the 207 CC than there was in the equivalent 206, although that really isn't saying much. No rear seats to speak of and a considerably smaller boot mean this really isn't a practical car by any stretch.
These HDi engines are clean and economical, which is good news for you and bad news for the taxman. They are also easy to insure, meaning this should be a very cheap car to run, if not to buy.
