Peugeot's new 107 city car will be launched in right hand drive form in the UK next summer.

The car, which replaces the 106 here, has been developed and built as part of a joint venture between PSA Peugeot Citroën and Toyota Motor Corporation and will be manufactured at the Toyota Peugeot Citroën Automobiles (TPCA) plant in Kolin, Czech Republic, alongside its two 'sister cars', the Toyota Aygo and Citroën C1.

The plant will have an annual production capacity of 300,000 vehicles, 100,000 units each for Peugeot and Citroën and 100,000 for Toyota.

The Peugeot 107 has been designed and engineered on the same platform as its sister cars.

The 107 will be offered with a choice of eight exterior colours - five metallic and three solid colours, all specially created to reflect the individual character of the car.

The 107 range will be available in either 3 or 5-door forms, with a single level of trim and two engines.

Standard specification for the UK includes front airbags, side airbags, ABS, power steering, adjustable steering wheel, rear wash wipe, adjustable rear-view mirrors, electric windows, remote-controlled door locking, a full-size spare wheel, and body-colour bumpers with black protective capping, body-colour door mirrors and door handles and a 50/50 split rear bench seat with rear head restraints and side protection.

Overall length of the Peugeot 107 is just 3.43 m - some 25 cm shorter than the 106 predecessor - making it one of the most compact four-seaters on the market.
