Special edition Peugeot 107 revealed for UK

The Peugeot 107 ENVY special edition, available in three- or five-door variants, will start from £9,595 and adds more equipment to standard trim levels.

More of a new specification than an entirely new special edition model, the ENVY comes with ABS, electronic brake force distribution (EBFD), corner stability control, four airbags and power steering to bring it in line with rivals in terms of safety.

Extra equipment includes air conditioning, remote control central locking, electric front windows, a height adjustable steering column and a CD player with MP3 socket.

All Peugeot 107 ENVY models bought before the end of 2010 are eligible for Peugeot’s offer to include a free Nokia 5230 smartphone with inbuilt satellite navigation and an in-car mounting kit.

Slight modifications to the exterior include body colour door mirrors, black body side trims and dark tinted windows, set off by 14" alloy wheels.

Inside, the seats have been upholstered in a new black and grey trim, but the three-point seat belts and 50/50 folding seats remain.

Under the bonnet, the ENVY comes with Peugeot’s 68bhp petrol engine matched to a five-speed manual gearbox.

The Euro 5-compliant engine returns 62.77mpg on the combined cycle and CO2 emissions of just 103g/km – enough to make it exempt from emissions-based road tax.

Drivers over 21 can buy the 107 on Peugeot’s Just Add Fuel offer, which groups insurance, warranty, servicing and road side assistance into on monthly payment of £189 over a three-year period.

Alternatively, three-door models cost £9,595 and the five-door model is priced at £9,945.

Despite its age, the Peugeot 107 is one of the more popular city cars in the UK, currently sitting in fifth in the sales charts.

The low running costs and compact dimensions have led to over 500,000 vehicles being produced by the manufacturer since it was launched in Europe in 2005.

The latest model, the special edition Peugeot 107 ENVY, will be available to buy in November 2010.
