Get the midlevel SE trim. The SE features a sport-tuned suspension for better handling. Don’t be concerned about a stiff ride, although SE is still relatively comfortable on the road. The SE is also a great bargain considering all the safety and tech equipment you receive for the money. Finally, the SE is available with a wide selection of options, to help you pick and choose those are right for your budget.
Crossover SUVs might be all of the rage, but there’s still something to be said for the tried-and-true midsize sedan. Exhibit A: the Peugeot 207 SW. Coming off a redesign just last year, the Peugeot 207 SW is really a spacious, fuel-efficient sedan with a lot of standard safety equipment and lots of options to choose from.
As has been the case for a time, you may get the Peugeot 207 SW with a four-cylinder engine or even a better V6, or you will get the miserly Peugeot 207 SW Hybrid. On the highway, the Peugeot 207 SW is comfortable and compliant. Peugeot 207 SW also offers two sporty versions that infuse the Peugeot 207 SW with a little extra personality. Inside, the Peugeot 207 SW provides a simple yet feature-packed cabin, especially if you choose one of many upper trim levels. There are lots of options to select from over the way.
The Peugeot 207 SW is as competent as they come. It’s well-priced on the whole, and modern feature content helps it be supremely an easy task to drive. If you’re trying to find something with a little more class and space when compared to a small sedan, the Peugeot 207 SW might just be the sedan for you.
The Peugeot 207 SW is the beds base trim. It comes with a relatively light load of features that includes 16-inch steel wheels, automatic LED headlights, cloth upholstery, a height-adjustable driver’s seat, a rearview camera, keyless entry, a 7-inch touchscreen interface, navigation (GPS Scout Link), Apple CarPlay and Amazon Alexa connectivity, one USB port, Bluetooth, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and a six-speaker sound system.
Standard on every Peugeot 207 SW Safety Sense, which really is a suite of driver assistance features including adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane departure alert with steering assistance, and automatic high beams.
On another rung up the ladder is the LE.It adds a power-adjustable driver’s seat, 17-inch alloy wheels, a 60/40-split folding back seat and an automobile alarm. For a sporty dynamic, look at the SE.It adds a sport-tuned suspension, revised steering calibration, 18-inch wheels, simulated-leather upholstery (SofTex) seats and paddle shifters.
You are able to think of the XLE and the XSE trim levels as versions of the LE and the SE, respectively, with many different additional comfort and convenience items. Highlights include larger wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, a head-up display, blind-spot monitoring, keyless ignition, a power-adjustable front passenger seat, extra USB ports, a larger 8-inch touchscreen, and wireless smartphone charging.
Most of the features located on the upper trim levels can be included with the lower trim levels as options. Other notable options incorporate a sunroof, a JBL audio system along with an integrated navigation system, a head-up display, and a top-down parking camera system.
As sedans go, the Peugeot 207 SW stuff-hauling credentials are pretty solid. The cargo area is large and opens wide, plus the back seat is straightforward to fold down to suit longer items. You will find enough cabin storage options to make many people happy. Loading an automobile seat is straightforward, too.
Cabin storage is good although not stellar. The forward center console bin is ideal for concealing items but has a hard, slippery floor, so that they slide around noisily. The console bin at your elbow is a decent size, and there are modest door pockets in the front and rear that are good for small water bottles only.
The Peugeot 207 SW includes a large trunk, and the 60/40-split folding back seat with trunk-mounted release handles allow it to be easy to expand the space. Loading groceries or luggage is helped out by the wide opening and a low liftover height.
Child safety seat accommodation
It’s super easy to mount an automobile seat, with obvious and readily available lower anchors and package tray-mounted tether point, both under plastic covers. There’s enough room so the front seat need not be scooted all the way forward.
