4-6 seconds is also adequate time for the show off (women do not think in terms of material practicality, am I wrong ?).
Lol... very fitting coming from a Greek
By the way, the picture that Braybuddy posted appears to be of the Sésame concept (although I don't remember seeing one in that colour before). The production 1007 has a far nicer (though still modern Peugeot) front end.

The question is will be people willing to fork money just for the door and also will not the classic situation with French repeat itself? Load it up to the roof with electronics is one thing and make the gadgets work with great degree reliability is another.
As far as usefulness is concerned the 107 is not that much different, looks are not dramatically different either yet it costs half of the 1007.
Apart from the nose (and even that's a tenuous link really), I can't really find any significant styling similarities between the two cars. Besides, the two cars are aimed at really rather different markets. Yes, both are going to be marketed towards young trendy city types, but there's a world of difference between the cheap-new-car market and that for upmarket, expensive-looking fashion cars. There's not exactly any overlap between a Lupo (or, more appropriately, the new Fox) and a New Beetle is there?
Regarding the new León, it's not a bad looker in itself, but I can't help feeling that the shape is more suited to the upright Altea and Toledo than the sporty-hatch León. Whereas the last model had a hint of Lancia Delta about it, and looked the business in Cupra form, I can't help feeling that the new design is just that bit too monobox-y (although admittedly that never hurt the Civic Type-R). And why is it nigh-on identical to the Altea and Toledo until the B-pillars? I don't mind the Altea and Toledo looking the same - after all, they're effectively just different bodystyles of the same car with different names (in a similar manner to the previous Toledo and León). With the new León, however, I really think Seat should have made the effort to design something more distinct. Methinks León owners aren't going to be hugely pleased when people mistake their slinky new hatchback for a midi-MPV.
EDIT: Why don't my accents work?
