2010 represents 200 years of Peugeot. To celebrate, the company is adding a new ‘Millesim’ special edition to the 207 hatchback and SW estate range.
USB & Bluetooth, alloy wheels and extra chrome
The Peugeot 207 Millesim is based on the existing S specification, but adds 15-inch alloy wheels, Peugeot Connect USB & Bluetooth, front fog lights, sports front grille with chrome accents, colour coded side rubbing strips with chrome inserts and ‘Millesim 200’ badging. SW estate variants also gain aluminium roof bars.
This is in addition to S-level standard kit, which includes four airbags, remote central locking, air conditioning and electric/heated door mirrors.
Peugeot USB & Bluetooth means an iPod or other MP3 player can be connected, and hands-free phone calls can be made via buttons on the steering wheel.
Petrol or diesel
Three- and five-door hatchback versions of the Peugeot 207 Millesim are available with a choice of two petrol engines and two diesel engines.
The petrol options are 1.4-litre units, offering either 75bhp or 95bhp; official EU fuel consumption and CO2 emissions figures are 44.8mpg and 145g/km for the former, 47.9mpg and 137g/km for the latter.
The alternative 1.6-litre HDi turbodiesels provide either 70bhp or 90bhp – and both return 65.7mpg with 115g/km CO2 emissions.
The 207 Millesim SW estate is only available with the more powerful petrol or diesel engines. Petrol efficiency remains constant, but the diesel drops slightly to 64.2mpg and 117g/km CO2.
Free Nokia smartphone with satnav
Prices for the Peugeot 207 Millesim start at £11,995 for the three-door entry-level petrol.
This is exactly the same as the S model it’s based on; a trend that continues for all Millesim models except the more powerful petrol hatchbacks (£10 extra) and the SW estate (£200-£210 more).
Meanwhile, buy any Peugeot from now until the end of June and the company will throw in a Nokia 5230 smartphone with free satellite navigation and car mounting kit – new Millesim range included.
