The 207 is proof that Peugeot is still a master when it comes to small cars. It's roomy, well equipped, attractively styled and comes with strong petrol and diesel engines.

Running costs

Peugeot 207 running costs are fairly low. The diesel engines return strong fuel economy and Peugeot generally offers good value-for-money parts and servicing. Depreciation is likely to track just below the market leaders, while insurance groups are competitive.

Emissions summary

The 207 performs very well on the eco front. With an average of 141g/km CO2 across the line-up, Peugeot 207 emissions are fairly low for a small hatch. Eco-conscious buyers should consider the 1.4-litre HDi, which is one of the greenest models in the range, returning 64mpg and emitting 117g/km of CO2, meaning road tax is cheap. In June 2010 Peugeot added a 112bhp 1.6-litre HDi in Sport trim to its line-up. This 'hot' diesel powered car returns 61.3mpg and emits 119g/km of CO2 emissions. This gives this variant a tax band of C.
