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 27 - 52 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.

The 2.0 HDi is the most cost effective option, the V6 diesel being considerably more expensive to buy and rather more thirsty. There's also a small petrol option which is worth considering for those not planning on big distances. The Coupe will hold it's value better than other versions of the 407, but the costly ones in particular will still lose plenty of money over the first year or two.

Service intervals are spaced at an impressive two years or 20,000 mile intervals.

The 407 performs badly on the eco front. With an average of 232g/km CO2 across the model line-up, its emissions are a little high for a sports coupe. The 2.0 HDi model is the best to go for in terms of green credentials - it emits 156g/km of CO2 and averages 48mpg.

It's quite a complex car, with plenty of gadgets that could go wrong, and Peugeots aren't known to be infallible in this area. The 407 has already been subject to numerous recalls with recurring faults on diesel models.
