You're not far off. The new 207 doesn't just share the bigger car's styling but also gets tantalisingly close to its proportions too. It's 208mm longer than the 206 it replaces, which makes it about the same amount shorter than a 307. The weight has shot up by 122kg as well. The upside of all this growth is a bigger cabin and more car for your money. Just one snag. Some of the engines are carried over from the 206...
Not when you compare it to an overloaded Rover 820 towing a caravan but it's not exactly rapid. The basic 1.4-litre, 75bhp petrol engined car takes a quoted 15.6secs to hit 62mph - the old car managed 14.1secs. The bottom end of the pricelist is best avoided in favour of the 110bhp 1.6-litre HDI diesel engine (a credible 10.1secs) we tested.
