Excellent new 2.2 diesel, lavishly equipped, comfortable
Lacks badge prestige
Refreshed in 2005, the Peugeot 607 still has appeal for the less badge-conscious after a smooth and refined big saloon with many items as standard that you'd have to pay extra for in other cars its size and price. Few private buyers choose the 607 when new - most are sold to fleets to whom Peugeot is the sole supplier of company cars - although more than 7,000 have been sold in the UK since it was launched in 2000, so there are plenty on the used market.
Heavy depreciation from new means the 607 will make more sense to most drivers as a used buy. The range has been scaled down since it was launched and most recently was only available in high-specification versions with very few options available. From late 2006 three engine versions are available: two diesels and a petrol 3.0 V6.
