Have the midlevel SE trim. The SE includes a sport-tuned suspension for better handling. Don’t be worried about a stiff ride, although SE remains relatively comfortable on the road. The SE is also a good bargain considering all the safety and tech equipment you obtain for the money. Finally, the SE is available with a wide range of options, in order to pick and choose which ones are right for the budget.
Crossover SUVs may be most of the rage, but there is still something to be said for the tried-and-true midsize sedan. Exhibit A: the Peugeot 207 CC Design. Coming off a redesign just last year, the Peugeot 207 CC Design is a spacious, fuel-efficient sedan with plenty of standard safety equipment and plenty of options to decide on from.
As has been the case for some time, you can get the Peugeot 207 CC Design with a four-cylinder engine or a better V6, or you may get the miserly Peugeot 207 CC Design Hybrid. On the highway, the Peugeot 207 CC Design is comfortable and compliant. Peugeot 207 CC Design also offers two sporty versions that infuse the Peugeot 207 CC Design with a bit of extra personality. Inside, the Peugeot 207 CC Design offers a simple yet feature-packed cabin, particularly if you go with one of many upper trim levels. There are lots of options to pick from across the way.
The Peugeot 207 CC Design is as competent because they come. It’s well-priced overall, and modern feature content helps it be supremely simple to drive. If you’re trying to find something with a little more class and space than a small sedan, the Peugeot 207 CC Design might just be the sedan for you.
The Peugeot 207 CC Design is the beds base trim. It includes a relatively light load of features which 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 CC Design 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 a car 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 can think of the XLE and the XSE trim levels as versions of the LE and the SE, respectively, with a number of 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.
Lots of the features found on the upper trim levels can be included with the low trim levels as options. Other notable options include a sunroof, a JBL sound system along with an integral navigation system, a head-up display, and a top-down parking camera system.
As sedans go, the Peugeot 207 CC Design stuff-hauling credentials are pretty solid. The cargo area is large and opens wide, plus the trunk seat is straightforward to fold down to match longer items. There are enough cabin storage options to produce most people happy. Loading a vehicle seat is straightforward, too.
Cabin storage is good but not stellar. The forward center console bin is ideal for concealing items but has a hard, slippery floor, so they really slide around noisily. The console bin at your elbow is really a decent size, and there are modest door pockets in the leading and rear that are great for small water bottles only.
The Peugeot 207 CC Design features a large trunk, and the 60/40-split folding back seat with trunk-mounted release handles ensure it is 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 quite simple to mount a car seat, with obvious and readily available lower anchors and package tray-mounted tether point, both under plastic covers. There’s room enough so that the front seat do not need to be scooted completely forward.
