As always before a new models arrives at dealerships, car makers try to get rid of what they have left of the old model by offering discounts or value-added packages. That’s when you can get some storming deals.
Now good news for Australians. Peugeot just announced an updated version of the 207 CC which comes with lots of features, for free.
It has the same price as the last year model ($33,490 for the 1.6L man and $35, 490 for the automatic), but it comes with Bluetooth phone and a USB port, leather seat trim and 16-inch alloy wheels, all as standard.
Other standard features include automatically folding steel roof, cruise control with speed limiter, dual zone climate control air conditioning, electronic stability program, four airbags, ABS with electronic brakeforce distribution and emergency brake assist.
The 2012MY 207 CC also gets some visual tweaks, such as the new Lion badging, black meter dials, a black interior roof colour and “Boyington” dashboard trim accents. As for the engine, the 1.6 liter unit makes 88kW of power at 6000rpm and 160Nm of torque at 4250rpm.
It’s a good deal, getting new features for the same price as before, but in a couple of months the new 208 will be out and that will make the 207 look old and kinda undesirable.
