Peugeot has announced a new special edition 207 called the Sportium.

It combines a comprehensive equipment list with high value and – especially in the case of the diesel model – modest running costs as well.

Peugeot 207 Sportium: from £12,595

The Peugeot 207 Sportium is available as a three- or five-door hatchback, and with a choice of 1.4-litre VTi petrol or 1.6-litre HDi turbodiesel power.

Output and performance is around about the same – 95bhp and 0-62mph in 12.1 seconds for the petrol, 92bhp and 12.9 seconds for the diesel – but the diesel engine is greener at 113g/km CO2 rather than 137g/km.

This results in reduced annual car tax – it’s even completely free for the diesel in the first year. Claimed fuel economy is 65.7mpg for the diesel, 47.9mpg for the petrol.

However, the diesel is also, inevitably, more expensive. A three-door petrol 207 Sportium will set you back £12,595, the diesel £13,895; the five-doors are £13,195 and £14,495 respectively.

Plenty of equipment, on sale next month

So, what do you get for your money? Quite a bit actually…

The Sportium is based on the 207 Millesim – a previous special edition – but with additional kit thrown in. Spec highlights include air conditioning, USB and Bluetooth connection, alloy wheels, rear parking sensors, Sportium interior pack, tinted glass, electric heated mirrors, body-coloured side and rear bumper mouldings, and a chrome-finish front grille.

On top of that, Peugeot is also including a free Nokia 5230 smartphone complete with satellite navigation and a car mounting kit.

The Peugeot 207 Sportium special edition goes on sale in November.
