Peugeot 100 Seven 2012 2013

Peugeot 100 Seven 2012-2013.

Restyling more and more often becomes the only option to update the model of the car, although it must be said, almost always justifies the hopes and sellers, and buyers. A little more than 3 months have passed since the launch of sales in Russia new Peugeot 100 Seven (2012-2013 model year), and you can impartially assess whether this car is worth the extra effort of the manufacturer. Bearing in mind that the Peugeot 100 Seven has long been sold very successfully, ranking in the top 3 best-selling models Peugeot, its restyling attracts attention by definition.

City car A-class Peugeot 100 seven successfully competed with other European brands, including the co-platform Citroen C1. The highlight was the collaboration with the Toyota concern (the Japanese Yaris became the technical twin of the 107). Creation was begun in two thousand five years, but our homeland saw the Frenchman exclusively in 2007.

It is worth seeing that the process of conquering the Russians was difficult, but it ended very successfully: a couple of times the car was recognized as the best in the city-car sector in every year’s assessment of professionals. In two thousand nine years, a redesigned version went on sale, which showed significant configuration, affecting the appearance and comfort of the interior. The undercarriage remains the same, but the fuel-saving ability has increased.

Three years later, the company’s management decided on the next update of the Peugeot 107, for the car did not give up sales positions, even in the face of impartially strong rivals of the same sector. Fiat Panda, Daewoo Matiz and Chevrolet Spark can be considered as the main competitors of the small city-car . At the end of two thousand and eleven, the world already knew about the future update, designed to bring the Peugeot 100 seven in line with the new concepts demonstrated by the SR1 and HR1 in January of two thousand and twelve. The goal of the restyling was to create a modern style of the car, profitably distinguishing it from its co-Platformers, such as Citroen, for example.

Car review.

Thus, the hero of our review – refreshed Peugeot 100 seven – Now it looks like this. Naturally, the restyling does not imply cardinal configurations, so as before we see two body modifications: 3-door and 5-door hatchbacks. The body color palette has been expanded by one color – Now those wishing to purchase a Peugeot 100 seven in plum color (pictured). Other colors, more colorful (this is one of the distinctive features of the 107) are available in full. Wheelbase – permanent 2.34 m with dimensions of 3.43 x 1.63 x 1.47. The weight of the car is seven hundred and ninety kilograms, so that we are fully confident, fast and small-sized citizen.

The appearance has been updated, although not revolutionary, but very tangibly. Thus, the bumper got moldings, the hood got a nameplate and a sub-stamp in the central part, and on the edges of the grille there is a place for fog lights and LED lights. Both the front and rear headlights got a mask (for the front, matching the colors of the emblem «Peugeot», for the rear – contrasting black), with the first ones also palpably widened. In addition to the front of the body, the alloy wheels in the standard package have changed from the outside. The license plate is now located on the plank between the air intake grilles.


Interior designers also emphasized the compliance with fashion trends. Better quality of interior materials. The basic package and a 3-door and 5-door hatchback expanded in significant ways: leather trim steering wheel and gear lever, multilanguage audio system with 2 speakers, air conditioner, hanging tachometer, iPod connection system with Bluetooth and usb available at the lowest cost.

The manual transmission brought with it, by default, new paddles. The comfort of the cabin remains the same: despite its small size, the cabin can accommodate 5 people relatively freely, and even on the back row three people will sit quite comfortably.

The extended wheelbase, stretched relative to the length of the car by 68%, is to be thanked for this. The ergonomics of the driver’s and front passenger seats can also be added to the pluses of the model – at least there is side support. The volume of the trunk remained constantly small, although it is difficult to expect capacity from a small-capacity car – 100 30 nine liters as standard and 100 70 nine liters with the shelf removed. With the rear row seats folded down in the 3-door body, the trunk can hold seven hundred and twelve liters., In the 5-door – Seven hundred and fifty-one liters.

Technical properties.

If we talk about the technical properties of the Peugeot 100 Seven , under the hood of the redesigned car had a nice configuration. The available three-cylinder engine with a displacement of one liter and an output of sixty-eight horsepower.с. is not alone now (for the Russian Federation, where the 107s were not equipped with diesels, it was the only option). Model 2012-2013 will be pulling to the same gasoline 86 hp engine with a capacity of 1.2 liters.

Suspension is characterized by high comfort, but there is no revolution in the design: Macpherson struts in front, rear – semi-independent V-twist support. Both powertrains differ profitably from previous ones in the reduction of CO2 emissions – according to the estimates of professionals, this figure will now be 100g.

This very feature of the redesigned Peugeot 100 Seven New allows professionals to call it one of the best European city cars. A distinctive feature of the City Car that will appeal to all owners – engine economy. Gasoline consumption is 4.3 liters. Add to this the compactness and maneuverability of small cars and you can not think for a long time when choosing.


Both Peugeot 107 configurations are available in Russia. Base, dubbed Access, includes the aforementioned avtoelektronika and good-quality interior trim, as well as the indispensable anti-lock brakes, front airbags and integrated head restraints for the front row seats.

The Peugeot 107’s best equipment package, dubbed «Active», much more presentable for the potential owner: it includes fog and halogen headlights, LED lights, electric front windows.

Basic configuration Peugeot 100 seven in the Russian Federation is available at a cost of three hundred and eighty thousand rubles. This is a big plus , because cheaper in the sector of foreign urban small cars only Ukrainian ZAZ-Chance. True, the already mentioned Chevrolet Spark, by definition Spartan, is equipped somewhat richer and has a more spacious interior.

And the Kia Picanto turns out to be better than the best modification in everything, not counting the price – The difference between it and the Peugeot 100 Seven Active will be about 50 thousand rubles.

Peugeot has made a car whose three cylinders are sufficiently filled with 4.6 liters of fuel, so that the hatchback could run, on its own 14-inch wheels, a hundred kilometers in the mixed cycle. But, frankly, the Peugeot 100 Seven was not made entirely by Peugeot and not entirely by the French! Peugeot 107, as it is clear, is created within the framework of the Franco-Japanese experience of PSA Peugeot Citroen Group and Toyota Motor Company.

The Peugeot 100 Seven, a three-cylinder, 68-horsepower, variable valve timing gasoline engine, is produced at the plant in Poland, built by Toyota. That’s where the five-speed gearboxes are made, including their manual versions.

The car is assembled in the Czech town of Kolin, the same place where two other clone microcars are created: the Citroen C1 and the Toyota Aygo.

The cars are similar in everything, except for the exterior and interior design. And, the main difference, the Peugeot 100 Seven differs from its competitors in that it began to be sold on the Russian market.

After the premiere of C1, "107th” and Aygo, a couple of years ago, there was a widespread belief that, instead of the Peugeot 107, the Russians would do just fine "206”. But, as time has shown, — Russians don’t feel sorry for small and cheap cars.

Especially since the competition in Russia, the smallest Peugeot will have to compete with not the most prestigious competitors, namely: with Chinese, Uzbek and Korean variants on the theme Daewoo Matiz.

The prospect of becoming a favorite among them seems far from hopeless. The Peugeot 100 Seven looks like a mink coat, which lining is made of a kind of turf. In other words, it leaves a better impression from the outside than from the inside.

Elegant headlights , hood with protruding "eyebrows”, the broad grin of the central air sink – Ladies are going to love this handsome guy! The Peugeot 100 seven simply has no back cover: only the glass opens. It’s hard to fit large bags into the gap, but SIGUENA from Spanish to English the loophole makes it very comfortable for photographers "shoot” Rear-mounted cars. But inside the Peugeot 100 seven — avant-garde. The seat is soft, the plastic is rough, on the doors and at all – painted metal. Original of course, but it would be better to put the trim back.

You can see the speedometer between the steering wheel core and the top of the rim. Tachometer – function. Heater control – The interesting round thing on the center console. Yes… space here has to be saved! Of course, once again the sense of style has not betrayed the French, but how do you compare it with comfort?? Speaking of economy and comfort. In the most ordinary Peugeot 100 seven the most amusing price tag, but it completely lacks the attributes of car civilization. There is no seat height adjustment, no air conditioner, no electric package – You have to open the windows and adjust the mirrors manually. However, the first few meters on this car is unlikely to give anyone pleasure, because there is not even the electric booster. Even a man can hardly turn a steering wheel at low speed… That is why we advise ladies to look closely at the Trendy configuration with electric power steering included in the base.

Peugeot 100 engine has seven – very vocal; perhaps even very. The car trembles with the annoying roar of the 1-liter engine. If you really want, Peugeot 100 Seven can be forced to rush as a stolen, while in fifth gear, its speed will not exceed 100 30 km, but the fuel consumption reaches mind-bogglingly low values. At "Fourth” and the highest speed will be over 140, and even over 100 50 km. But it is not possible to achieve a sharp acceleration: the car will accelerate smoothly and quietly. The Peugeot 100 Seven will rush forward, still ringing its three "pot” (the soundproofing could have been worked on better) and firmly clinging to the asphalt.

The stability of the car is excellent . The Peugeot 100 Seven goes steadily, without sway and vibration, as if it does not exceed the allowed dynamic maximum. Suspension at "107th” – very compacted, very good at working out small bumps. The larger ones have a rumble and a palpable bump on the body. On sand or small gravel, machine-gun fire begins on the wheel arches. To get off the asphalt, I want to emphasize, on the Peugeot 100 Seven is possible without nasty consequences. Arches "107th” The wheels are inflated and widely spaced at the corners: the frontal overhang – 65, rear – 40 four cm. This not only makes the car better steerable and more stable on the road, and allows you to drive over bumps without the risk of scratching the bumper.

Naturally, there is no question about any off-road capabilities of the Peugeot 100 Seven, but still, since this Peugeot has been brought to Russia, it is nice to think that it is, to some extent, ready for our roads.

But are they ready for such a car in Russia?? — it’s hard to say. Naturally, the Russians have already got used to the fact that a small car is not necessarily not worth enough, so the price of the Peugeot 100 Seven will not scare us. But here’s how we’re willing to shrink our own cars and take pride in their maneuverability, sacrificing all that "by authority” of a huge car? Especially since even the Peugeot 107 won’t make it through our traffic jams.

Prices for the Peugeot 100 Seven start at three hundred thousand rubles. In the base – 3 door body, 1.0-liter engine with manual transmission, Abs, two airbags. You can aggregate the motor with a manual transmission 2-Tronic, paying three hundred and forty seven thousand rubles., This price includes power steering with adjustable steering column and front power windows.
