Which used Peugeot 607 saloon should I buy?
At launch in 2000, there were three engines, 160bhp 2.2-litre and 204bhp 3.0-litre V6 (upgraded to 211bhp in December 2004) petrols, as well as an 136bhp 2.2-litre diesel. A 2.0 110bhp diesel and a 2.0 138bhp petrol were added in 2001, and your best bet is to buy any one of the diesels, although the 110bhp version is a bit weedy.
There was a very minor face-lift at the end of 2004, and the range was simplified a year later to just a 2.0-litre 136bhp diesel and the 3.0-litre petrol. A 2.2-litre 170bhp diesel was added in 2006.
Trims levels at launch were S, SE and Executive, but from late 2005 the first two were ditched. If you can afford it, Executive is the spec to go for, although standard kit on all models is high.
Peugeot's approved used scheme will provide peace-of-mind buying, but there're good deals to be had at auctions specialising in ex-lease vehicles.
