The Peugeot 207 has a dynamic design that doubtless appeals to younger buyers. But, like almost all Peugeots, it also has armchair-soft seats and a suspension that floats over bumps, but therefore also rolls round corners like it's for senior citizens.
The interior space is generous, but then it is a wide car. This makes it less nippy in town but more comfortable for adults, especially when doing long main road runs. But Peugeot's biggest appeal on the used market is to bargain hunters.
The 1.6P sport is a bit of a laugh, but there are few other reasons for buying that engine and spec. The two big sellers are the 1.4P and 1.6HDI (diesel). The diesel offers 63 mpg to the petrol's 44. The diesel costs more on insurance and in servicing.
Unless you do enormous mileage, buy the petrol and save up to £1,000 up front. Plus it will often be cheaper to service. If you get stung with replacing the diesel particulate filter it will hurt your wallet. Check the service history to avoid this.
Looking at 3 year olds, there are 3 door 1.4 petrols at under £7,000, 5 doors available for £500 more. Then a 3 door 1.6 Hdi is £8,000 and again a 5 door is £500 more. Diesels have 7,000 miles more on the clock than the petrols on average.
Nearly new cars (up to 1 year old) are heavily discounted and it takes until the cars are 3 for the market to correct itself. So buying nearly new or after 3 years old makes most sense.
Used Car Expert recommends that you try to buy after a big drop in depreciation and before the next one, so with the current Peugeot 207 you would aim to buy a 4 year old and sell it before it is 6 years old.
Diesel Peugeot 207 cars lose most over the first year (from new to 1 year old), so that is the best ‘nearly new’ buy in terms of car for money.
Petrol Peugeot 207 cars lose least between years 1 and 3, so this is the best buy if you want to keep the car for a while.
Petrol Peugeot 207 cars lose least between years 2 and 4, so that is the best buy on older cars.
