BIG is beautiful, so they say, but small can be just as cute.
And in the case of the Peugeot 107 that's certainly true, even when it lands at your doorstep in yellow paintwork that can be seen for miles around.
It's also very handy if you've left it in a busy car park and can't quite remember where you left it. But over the next few months it could become more difficult to spot because I predict the all-new Peugeot 107 will be a big seller - even in bright yellow.
The charming little motor has been developed and built as part of a joint venture between PSA Peugeot Citroën and Toyota, and sells as the Peugeot 107, Citroen C1 and Toyota Aygo.
Although they share the same mechanicals and interior design, significant body styling differences set them apart.
And I think the Peugeot is the cutest of the lot, with its smiley, wide grille, cat-like headlamps and forward sloping windscreen which follows the styling cues on the Peugeot 407.
A replacement for the old Peugeot 106, the newcomer looks much more up to date and enters the highly competitive small city car run-around sector.
There's only one engine offered in the 107 - a one-litre, three-cylinder petrol affair which produces just 68bhp. But it's a lively little power plant which can push the 107 to 100mph.
It's not lightning quick from rest to 62 mph, its time being 14.2 seconds, but buyers of the 107 won't be out to break records, unless it is in the fuel consumption stakes.
Peugeot claims that on a combined run owners could manage 61.4mpg, and even around town 51.5mpg has been quoted.
Insurance group at 1E, is as low as you will get, so it's another bonus when buying this budget car.
The 107 comes in just one specification, called Urban, but you can choose a three or five-door version. The five-door is just £350 extra, which in my opinion is well worth it. There's nothing worse than trying to get an adult crammed into the back of a small city car through a small gap.
A tiny boot meets the eye when you push a button to release the tailgate panel but I managed to get a large, fortnightly shopping load into the back of the 107 by folding down the rear seats. Mothers should be able to get a buggy in the back with no trouble.
It drives well, holding the road on sharp bends with very little lean and the suspension does a good job or ironing out the bumps.
Road and wind noise are well suppressed but - probably to be expected - engine noise is a bit intrusive when you really rev it up.
Equipment levels are high for a car costing just under £7,000. It has driver and front passenger airbags, side airbags, electric windows, remote central locking, adjustable headrests, anti lock brakes, adjustable steering wheel, and power steering and radio/CD player.
Manual air conditioning, a rev counter and front/rear curtain airbags are available as an option.
Another option is an electronically controlled 2-Tronic five-speed manual/automatic gearbox. There is no clutch pedal and two gear selection modes are available - fully automatic or manual. This costs £500 extra.
Overall, I think the Peugeot 107 is a cute little motor which is cheap to run and with good build quality. It is well worth considering.
