Peugeot has a reputation for producing aspirational 'hot-HATCHES'. 206GTi that almost every 'boy racer's' dream in the eighties and now those lads have grown up (at least on the outside), they can relive their youth through the latest 207 GTi THP 175, and no doubt will get a new generation of driver's bug , too.

Either way, the latest version of the 207 that will not disappoint. It is fast and quick - mean and relatively clean, all in one package.

New GTi has a top speed of 137mph, but have to have (where legal) that's the fun. It is powered by a 1.6, turbo-charged, only the gasoline engine produces 264Nm or more than £ 195 ft of torque, including £ 15 ft of overboost, at the peak only 1600rpm - the diesel area. This allows the GTi to reach 62mph, from the stand, in just 7.1seconds. However, starting grin almost instantaneously.

This particular machine has also been used in some 207GTi THP150 but has been remapped for extra power - 177PS or 175bhp at 6000rpm - and performance, assisted by the update, twin-scroll, turbo-charger. The idea is to create a 1.6 petrol engine feel and behave more like 2.0 units, while maintaining the attributes of a small engine and work. So, it's hats off to co-developers, PSA Peugeot Citroen and BMW

It was only two years since Peugeot introduced the 207, and the French automaker has already produced more than 1 million samples of the new car. Cars hit the market in April 2006 with the three-and five-door hatchbacks, and has since rolled the car, train ride and some sports model.

Last year, only Peugeot sold half a million new 207s, manufactured in three plants in Europe - in France, Slovakia and Spain - which combined with the number of vehicles per day in 2500. In the segment crowded with more than 70 different models, the 207 has emerged as market leaders. Its "win on Sunday, sell on Monday" has been driven by the success of some of the double Intercontinental Rally Challenge Super title that year 2000 is 207, mirroring its big brother 908 HDI success in the Le Mans race

Even the principles that apply generally to all French Car Makers. TopGear user survey on the rate below 5 car (in terms of reliability) as one of the Peugeots or Citroens. However, that has not stopped 5.5 million buyers to buy Peugeot 206, so the best selling Peugeot ever.

So the time has come to replace the aging 206 with something a bit more modern .... The Peugeot 207.
