What used Peugeot 207 hatchback will I get for my budget?
You can easily find a 207 for around £500, provided you don’t mind going for a car that has covered mega miles or has had previous accident damage. We’d suggest you that you should spend about £1500-2000 for a decent petrol car with below-average mileage. Diesels are a little bit pricier, but £2500-3000 will find you plenty of tidy examples.
Even a late, low-mileage example in plush Allure specification can be bought for only around £5000.

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 a reasonable group 5 for the less powerful 1.4-litre petrols and diesels, while the 1.6-litre models start at group 11. GT models are in group 15, while the GTi hot hatch can be a bit pricey, sitting in group 25.
Strangely, the 68bhp 1.4 and 90bhp 1.6 litre diesel engines have the same fuel economy, according to the NEDC result, of 62.7mpg and low CO2 emissions of 120g/km, making the latter a much better bet. The more powerful 110bhp 1.6-litre diesel option isn’t much worse, at 58.8mpg. The petrols are also efficient, achieving mpg figures in the high-30s in the real world – if you take it easy.
Every example of the 207 is over three years old now, so you can use Peugeot’s fixed-price servicing scheme. Intervals are every 12 months or 10,000 miles, with a minor service being £179 and a major one costing £299, and you get a 12 months parts and labour warranty thrown in as well.
