The 1007's unique design features four pillars and two power sliding doors (as in a large MPV) rather than conventional hinged doors for easier access in cramped spaces and on hills. The car also features user-swappable Cameleo interior trim pieces which cost around €250 for a set. Another innovation is the optional "2-Tronic" semi-automatic transmission (though a similar system was used on the Hudson Commodore of the 1950s, albeit using a vacuum shift), which shares the 206's 1.4 L and 1.6 L petrol engines and 1.4 L and 1.6 L diesel engines. For its size, the 1007 is expensive, with prices around €14,000 / £10,000. EuroNCAP has awarded the vehicle its second best ever rating for adult occupant safety.
The 1007 is the first mainstream car from Peugeot to feature a "double zero" number. In English-speaking countries, the name is correctly pronounced "ten-oh-seven". Originally launched with the pronunciation "one-double-oh-seven" and James Bond-style promotion, Peugeot revised their strategy under pressure from the Bond franchise owners.  It is also commonly called the "one-thousand-and-seven". In France it is marketed as the "mille-sept".
