Fuel economy

A more stringent standard for fuel economy (WLTP) was introduced from September 2017, and this model was not required to undergo that test. Its fuel economy measured under the previous test system was 39 - 67 mpg. However these figures are less likely to be achievable in real world driving and so should never be compared to another car's mpg which was measured under the newer, more realistic WLTP system.

Expect to see good fuel economy from all engines and especially the diesels. Parts and servicing tend to reasonably priced, while depreciation is slightly better than average for a small car. What’s more, insurance groups are competitive too so Peugeot 207 SW running costs are easy on the bank balance.

Thanks to a line-up of modern and efficient engines the Peugeot 207 SW emissions are low. The car is fairly small and light, too, which also helps keep emissions down. The cleanest model in the range is the HDi 92 at 110g/km, keeping emissions and tax low. The range is also very frugal - the diesels are capable of up to 67.3mpg.

The 207 SW feels far more substantial than the 206 that it replaced. Few major problems have been reported with the hatchback - which went on sale in 2006. However, there have been several official recalls already including issues regarding the engine potentially cutting out and wind screen wipers failing.

Check to ensure that any recall work that is required has been carried out and the car has been regularly serviced by a reputable dealer and this will help ensure Peugeot 207 SW reliability proves stress free.
