What's the used Peugeot 407 saloon like?

Show the Peugeot 407 a motorway and it will keep you happy all day long. Every engine cruises quietly, wind and road noise are subdued and the ride is comfortable at speed.

Your passengers will enjoy the ride, too, as the cabin will take five of you without too much of a push, although six-footers will find headroom tight in the rear. Being a saloon, it isn't as versatile as a family hatch, but the large boot is family-friendly.

Check you can get on with the driving position - some drivers just can't get comfy. The sheer number of fiddly buttons on the dashboard look confusing, but most owners say they quickly learn the half dozen or so needed for daily driving.

You'll notice that the ride isn't too hot at slower speeds or over broken surfaces. And, the 407 isn't that much better on twisty country lanes where, despite good grip, it's far from agile and the steering is numb.
