Updated Peugeot 107 gets new family face, sub-100g/km emissions and starts from £7,995

After six years and 650,000 units sold, the Peugeot 107 has been refreshed. New styling to bring it into line with the rest of the range, fuel economy has been improved and more equipment has been added, but the starting price for the range has been reduced.

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 a new lion badge.

An overhaul of the 68bhp 1.0-litre three-cylinder engine has dropped CO2 emissions by 4g/km to a tax-free 99g/km for the first time, while fuel economy is up to 65.7mpg. The 0-62mph time of 14.2 seconds and top speed of 100mph is unchanged.

The range has been re-jigged, with three trim levels now offered - Access, Active and Allure. Air-conditioning is standard on Active models, while Allure spec cars get alloy wheels, a Bluetooth connection and USB socket as standard.

Despite the bump in equipment levels, prices have actually fallen, with an entry-level car now costing £7,995 - that's £700 less than the cheapest version of the outgoing model.
