Both models will be powered by a new 1.6 litre 16v petrol engine designed in co-operation with the BMW Group and manufactured for both parties at PSA Peugeot Citroën’s Douvrin manufacturing plant.
Already seen in the BMW Group’s Mini Cooper, this engine will replace the current Peugeot 1.6 litre 16v 110bhp engine in the 207 range.
A four-speed ‘Porsche Tiptronic System’ will be an available transmission option with the new engine too.

Peugeot’s 107 range entry-model is, from February, to be available in a new three-door ‘Sport XS’ trim.
Available from £8,345, the 107 Sport XS is comes in four colour combinations, diamond white (with red stripes and silver edges), laser red (with white stripes and black edges), raven black metallic (with red stripes and silver edges) or zircon grey metallic (with graphite stripes and white edges).
