The Peugeot 407 majors on style in an attempt to tempt buyers away from other mainstream family cars and with its gaping grille and long front overhang it certainly stands out. However newer alternatives like the Citroen C5 and Ford Mondeo are better looking and the Peugeot is no longer as striking as it once was.

Buying used

Depreciation soon knocks the price down on the used market (although the 407 is no worse than its rivals) so you can get a fine family car with high levels of safety at a good price. But make sure you have a good look about as the deals on pre-registered examples can be as good as you'd get on a year old car with 10,000 miles on the clock. Avoid the thirsty V6 engines and go for one of the HDi models.

Selling

The 407 has distinctive styling which appeals to plenty of buyers, but it won't hold its value as well as a VW Passat or Honda Accord. The diesels have the strongest appeal but you may struggle to make back the extra premium of the 2.7-litre V6 unit. Still the 407 is well known and you should have few problems selling one.
