Which used Peugeot 207 hatchback should I buy?
The 74bhp 1.4-litre petrol engine might look tempting due to its low price, but it's too slow, so it’s worth spending a bit more to get the 89bhp 1.4 or even the 118bhp 1.6.
The 1.4-litre diesel is also underpowered, whereas the 1.6-litre diesel is worth considering. If you fancy something sportier, there are petrol and diesel GT models that make 148bhp and 109bhp respectively.
At the top of the range sits the GTi hot hatch, but while this produces 173bhp and offers lively performance, it drives too much like a regular 207 to feel worthy of the iconic GTi badge.
No matter which 207 you choose, those in the front are protected by front and side airbags, while the entry-level model is the only one to miss out on curtain airbags that protect the heads of those in the front and the back.
Only the Sport and SE Premium and GT models get alloy wheels as standard. Also, if you go for a 1.4-litre model, be sure to choose one that was specified with the optional air conditioning.
