35 Euro Cars That Can Save America: # 34 - Peugeot 1007

Updated on September 30, 2008

 

Ridiculous in every extreme, the absurdly, unconscionably, and blatantly ripoff priced 1007 is exceptionally heavy, provides below average fuel mileage and to my eye looks like a lozenge on wheels. However, there are some people that just want to “make a statement” when they arrive and the only way they can justify parking the Escalade is if they can be seen stepping out in front of the night club in something that turns heads, and the full size sliding doors of the 1007 definitely fill that role. Sure, they've been around on vans for decades, but there's no other car in this class that has doors that slide, so it's the next best thing to gullwings!

 

The Peugeot 1007 Hatchback 1.4 8v SE 3 Door is estimated to carry a North American net sale price of $17,252.73, given the prevailing market pricing of similar automobiles. Its 1360 cc engine powers the car to a top speed of 102 MPH and an acceleration shown by a zero to sixty MPH time of 14.4 seconds. The performance factor of 13.3 is above average for its class. The Peugeot 1007 Hatchback 1.4 8v SE 3 Door returns 54.3 MPG in highway driving, 32.8 MPG in the city, and a combined loop mileage of 43.5. With a fuel tank capacity of 8.8 gallons, the car can travel 478 miles on a full tank of unleaded regular fuel, but when it's filled right up to the top of the fuel filler neck, the total range should be approximately 576 miles. When all these price, performance and mileage factors are taken into consideration, the Peugeot 1007 Hatchback 1.4 8v SE 3 Door scores a combined Practicality Index of 60, with 100 representing the best, most practical car available and 1 representing a Hummer H3.
