Peugeot 207 SW: the lowdown
Last week it was the 207 GTI hot hatch, now it's the more practical funked-up estate. The 207 range continues to expand, and this SW Outdoor Concept will be shown at the Geneva show next month. What's new? A panoramic glass roof, split-fold rear hatch and sliding seats add some practical touches to the cabin, while the exterior is toughened up with the usual cladding around the sills and wheelarches. Is it just us, or does the wraparound glass on the rear hatch look suspiciously like the Mercedes A-class back end? We'll see a production 207 SW on sale this autumn, with sales starting in September. Unlike the 206 SW, this one won't be built in the UK's Coventry factory, which closed last year. The regular 207 SW won't get the faux-by-four body cladding; it will be reserved for a separate model due in 2008.
