What used Peugeot 207 hatchback will I get for my budget?

You can buy a Peugeot 207 for less than £1000 if you don’t mind going for a car that has covered mega miles. However, even a late, low-mileage example in the plush Allure specification can be bought for about £4000.

How much does it cost to run a Peugeot 207 hatchback?

The 207 should cost about the same as its rivals to run. Insurance is from group 5 for the less powerful 1.4-litre petrols and diesels. The 1.6-litre models start at group 11 and the GTs at group 15, while the GTi is pricey, sitting in group 25.

Strangely, the 1.4 and 90bhp 1.6 litre diesel engines have the same fuel economy of 62.7mpg and low CO2 emissions of 120g/km, making the latter a much better bet. The more powerful diesel option isn’t much worse at 58.8mpg. The petrols are also efficient, achieving high-30s mpg figures in the real world – if you take it easy.

The 207's servicing costs are similar to rivals', but switching to an independent, as long as they carry out the work correctly, could save you up to 50% in labour charges.
