2012 Peugeot 107 facelift unveiled image

After Citroen, Peugeot has revealed a facelift for the 107, with new exterior styling, increased specification and reduced Co2. The new 2012 107 will be available from February, with the Citroen C1 following in April.

Yes, it’s small, but the 107 has been a very popular and successful model for Peugeot, so it was important to make sure it remained fully competitive in its class.

At the front, a deeper bumper features LED running lights and fog lights for the first time. The grille is split into upper and lower parts, while the bonnet is sculpted and features the new floating lion badge.

Like the revised version of Peugeot’s Citroën C1 sister car revealed yesterday, tweaks to the 1.0-litre, three-cylinder petrol engine result in CO2 emissions of 99g/km, making the 107 road-tax free as well as exempt from London’s Congestion Charge.

The 998cc triple has 68bhp and 70lb ft of torque. Stir the five-speed gearbox fast enough and you might just pass 62mph in 14.2sec and top out at 100mph (161 km/h).
