Peugeot 207 SW news - All clear now? - 2007
Like a giant, slow-motion game of Connect Four, the
Peugeot 207 line-up is nearly complete.
Following the introduction of the CC, RCup and GTi
(pay attention, you’ll be tested on this later) comes this, the SW.
That’s SW for Station Wagon, because it’s the estate version
of Peugeot’s supermini that rounds off the 207 range.
Most excitingly, the SW sports a full-length panoramic glass
roof (like the Citroen C4 Picasso, but smaller obviously), allowing you to gaze
up at the stars above. Not while driving, though. That’d be dangerous.
It also gets something that Peugeot has cryptically dubbed
‘an innovative rear-seat folding mechanism’, which provides a perfectly flat
rear loading area.
The 207 SW will be available with two petrol and two diesel
engines, including an all-new 1.4-litre petrol option that develops a heady
95bhp thanks to some trick variable valve timing.
All engine options will be mated to a five-speed manual
Yes, it’s all a bit sedate, but we applaud the Peugeot
designers for at least refusing to garnish the SW in the infuriatingly modish
tacky plastic body panels that seem to be everywhere at the moment. Couldn’t
they have done something about that demonic Hannibal Lecter smile, though?
