New Zealand's Brendon Hartley won the drivers title.

The 2007 Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0 season was the seventeenth Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0 season. The season began at Zolder on 21 April and finished at Barcelona on 28 October, after fourteen rounds.[1]

The title was claimed by Epsilon RedBull driver Brendon Hartley with a round to spare.[2] Hartley took four race wins during the season, two of which coming in the opening round at Zolder. He also took four further podium finishes en route to a 32-point championship win over Jon Lancaster. SG Formula's driver eventually ended the season also with four victories in two final rounds at Estoril and Barcelona.

Lancaster's teammate Charles Pic finished in third position, taking victory at the Nürburgring.[3] He finished 17 points clear of Epsilon Euskadi's Stefano Coletti, who took win at the Hungaroring.[4] Other victories were taken by Prema Powerteam's Henkie Waldschmidt at the Nürburgring and guest driver Mathieu Arzeno, who won both Magny-Cours races.
