The third member of the Peugeot 207 SW range will be launched in the UK in December 2007. It will increase the SW range to three models: the S, Sport and Outdoor.

The 207 SW Outdoor is aimed at customers who enjoy outdoor pursuits and want a vehicle which is functional, fun, practical and full of personality.

It is based on the 207 SW Sport but brings a visual ‘off-road’ look to the range through the increased ground clearance (raised by 16 mm at the front and 21 mm at the rear), fitment of new 16″ ‘Outdoor’ alloy wheels with special 205/55R 16 tyres and large Narbonnais grey wheel arch extensions / sill mouldings.

The standard specification builds on that of the 207 SW Sport but adds: one touch front and rear electric windows, dark tinted rear side windows and tailgate glass, washable floor mats and Aspen black or brown interior trim.

It is still a true Peugeot SW with a full length “Cielo” glass panoramic roof, the innovative rear seat folding mechanism and all the standard safety equipment of the other 207 SW models.

It has an overall length of 4156 mm, 119 mm longer than the 207 hatchback and an increased height of 1555 mm, 28 mm more than the 207 SW Sport.

The innovative folding rear seats split two thirds / one third and, when folded, form a continuous flat load area which can accommodate a variety of leisure equipment up to an overall length of 1.70 m and provides a total volume of 1,433 litres.

The 207 SW Outdoor will be available with three engine options, two HDi diesels, 1.6 litre 90 bhp and 1.6 litre 110 bhp with a diesel particle filter system (DPFS) and one petrol engine, a 1.6 litre VTi* 120 bhp engine.

All the engines will be fitted with a manual five speed gearbox with ratios selected to match the individual engine characteristics.
