Peugeot UK is thinking that if they attach a name that has the word "sport" in it, that it would change the look of their little hatchback. We’re not sure if they succeeded, but we give them an A for effort. Their project is the special edition 207 Sportium and it will be offered with a choice of either a VTi 95 Euro 5 petrol engine or Peugeot’s new HDi 92 Euro 5 diesel engine, plus a number of little treats to sport up the vehicle.
The 207 Sportium will be offered with power steering, reach and rake adjustable steering, six airbags, remote control central locking with deadlocks, and electric front windows – “one touch” for the driver. As far as acronyms go, the 207 will come with a radio/ CD player, ABS, EBFD, and EBA. Exterior sporty features will include front fog lights, chrome effect finish to the front grille, colour-coded body side mouldings (including rear bumper), Sportium interior pack, and dark tinted rear window / rear side glass. Finishing off the exterior look is a set of alloy wheels - 15" on petrol models and 16" on HDi models.
Prices for the new 207 Sportium edition start at £12,595. Sales will begin in November.
