Used Peugeot 807 MPV 2003 - 2010 review
Star rating

What's the used Peugeot 807 MPV like?

The Peugeot 807 is a real improvement on the 806 it replaced. It drives better, has more cabin space, is more versatile and has the added attraction of a five-star Euro NCAP crash test rating.

True, an 807 isn't the prettiest car you'll ever own, but it is refined and enjoyable to drive. The ride is firm at town speeds, but comfortable on a cruise, and the car goes round corners with tidy composure. And, the driving position is good, so long as you get on with the centrally mounted instruments.


The Peugeot 807 is capable, refined and comfortable; a genuine multi-purpose vehicle

  • It's spacious, practical
  • safe
  • enjoyable to drive and the diesel engines are excellent
  • The instrument layout is quirky and luggage space is limited with all seven seats in use

All engines are quiet unless worked hard, but you can avoid that problem easily by buying one of the muscular diesels.

The sliding rear doors are a real asset, especially in tight parking spaces, and the cabin has plenty of other thoughtful design features. Luggage space is tight with all seven seats in place, but folding the rear and middle rows frees up a huge 2948 litres.

Ownership cost

What used Peugeot 807 MPV will I get for my budget?

How much does it cost to run a Peugeot 807 MPV?

An equivalent Citroen C8 will be cheaper to buy, but the 807 is still a keenly priced used motor and better value than the Fiat Ulysse. The big Peugeot loses value fast from new, but it takes the worst hit during the first year. After that, depreciation is on a par with most other mainstream MPVs.

Fuel costs are reasonable, as well. The petrols should cover about 30 miles on a tankful with gentle driving, while the diesels are capable of 40mpg.

Our recommendations

Which used Peugeot 807 MPV should I buy?

The diesels' blend of low-rev pull, smooth delivery, better fuel economy and refined hush suits the 807 better than the petrols. Which is handy, because they're also more plentiful on the used market.

The 110bhp 2.0 HDi turbodiesel won't disappoint you, but the 136bhp 2.2 HDi is the pick of the bunch. It's noticeably stronger and virtually as economical.

The 138bhp 2.0 petrol is okay, but no match for the diesels on the motorway or when you're fully loaded. There's also a 160bhp 2.2 for real petrolheads, but if you're a petrolhead, chances are you won't be looking at an 807 anyway.

All models come with electric sliding rear doors, six airbags, climate control, CD player and electric front windows, so we'd be happy with the basic LX trim. GLX adds alloy wheels and an alarm; Executive has electric seat adjustment; and the top-spec Executive SE has cruise control and leather seats. Later models are badged S, SE and Executive.
