These doors have an electric drive. 1007 RC with a 1.6-liter engine up to 140 h.p. was presented at the Paris Motor Show in 2006. Also, there was a version of the RC-1007 Line with a 1.6-liter gasoline engine, 110 h.p. with a mechanical 5-speed box 2-Tronic. It was available for sale only for some countries, such as Germany. Special versions of 1007 were released at different times: Pack Limited (2005), Freddy (2005), Elle (2006, Belgium), Cappuccino (2006), Roxy (2006), RC Line (2006), Quiksilver (2006, Switzerland), Black & Silver (2009). At the start of sales were planned three engines: a 1.4-liter petrol 75 h.p. with manual or 5-step robotic gearbox 2-Tronic, 1.6-liter gasoline engine capacity of 110 h.p. with the transmission 2-Tronic and 1.4-liter HDi diesel 70 h.p. with a mechanical 5-speed gearbox. Since April 2006, there is also a 1.4-liter injector engine with a 16-valve petrol engine and 90 h.p. Then, in February 2007, a 1.6-liter HDi diesel engine was sold, which is more suitable for its mass (more than a tonne). With this engine, the car accelerates 4 seconds faster from 0 to 100 km/h (11.4 s instead of 15.4 s for 1.4 HDi 70 with a top speed of 172 km/h) and provides maximum torque from 240Nm to 260Nm at 2000 rpm / min, thanks to a turbocharger with variable geometry. In 2005, in the EuroNCAP crash test the Peugeot 1007 received a record 36 points, which makes it the benchmark for passive safety.
