Peugeot claim buyers will be getting a “premium” interior including a seven-inch touch-screen, reversing camera, keyless entry and starting, automatic air conditioning, heated electric mirrors and automatic lighting, although expect at least some of those to be optional extras.

Outside Peugeot’s current brand-face is grafted onto the tiny body, which retains the “wheels at all four corners” look of the original 107.
