The Peugeot 107 is a city car produced by the French automaker Peugeot since summer 2005. The 107 was developed by the B-Zero project of PSA Peugeot Citroën in a joint-venture with Toyota; the Citroën C1 and Toyota Aygo are badge engineered versions of the same car, although the Aygo has more detail differences than the C1. All three are built at the new facilities of the Toyota Peugeot Citroën Automobile Czech joint-venture in the city of Kolin, Czech Republic. It is a four-seater available as a three or five-door hatchback. The 107 replaces the 106, which ceased production at the end of 2003 after 12 years.
The rear view of the Peugeot 107 shows the tail light clusters it shares with the Citroën C1, but not with the Toyota Aygo. In January 2010, PSA Peugeot Citroën announced that it is recalling “under 100,000 units” of the 107 and the Citroën C1, following the worldwide recall by Toyota for a faulty sticking accelerator pedal – in which the Aygo is affected. Under certain circumstances, the pedal can stick in a partially depressed position, or return slowly to the off position.
Despite only having a one-litre engine the 107 is pretty lively and there is never any problem keeping up with city traffic or even motorway traffic for that matter, although the small engine size does become more obvious if you have three or four passengers in the car. Strangely enough even though the same engine powers the 107′s sister cars – the Citroen C1 and Toyota Aygo – Peugeot claim its car has the highest top speed of 100mph. That’s 4mph faster than the C1 and 2mph faster than the Aygo.
