PEUGEOT 207
Previous | 123 | Next

Hi I am interested in replacing my 7 year old Nissan Micra 1.4E with a used 3 year old Peugeot 207, 1.4L Sport with paddleshifts. I did not managed to test drive the 207 but tested the 308.

The 308 did not do too well. It was sluggish. A short write up on the test drive is here. Ride of the 308

I am wondering if the 207 will have the same problem with being underpowered. Are there particular problems with the 207 that will require extensive repairs.

In Singapore, cars are extremely expensive so the 207 will cost me about SGD$59,000 or £29,969.

207 owners, can you help enlighten me on the ownership experience of the Peugeot? Thanks

I've driven a few 1.4 207s. They're pretty terrible. Sluggish and no fun to drive, the handling doesn't sparkle at all and the interior is very cheap and nasty.

What's the difference between a BMW and a hedgehog?

Why not get something like a mini cooper?

If a 207 is a 30k car, what would a Mini Cooper be worth? Scary numbers!

3 year old 207 1.4 in the uk is £4-5k+. You can get a mini for that, it may be a year it two older. But most importantly, it's not a 207.

Well, the current price of a 3 year old Mini Cooper over here is about $100,000 or £51,000. A Cooper S of the same age will set me back by £71,000. That's car ownership in Singapore for you.

Holy crap :shock: that's ALOT of money for a 207. Aren't there any other options???

I can only please one person a day. Today is not your day and tomorrow don't look good either.

I think suicide is a viable option in this situation!

Japanese cars are probably cheaper. Suzuki Swift, Mazda 2/Demio, 3/axela, Honda Jazz , Toyota Ist

A 3 yr old Suzuki Swift Sport, one of my top choice will cost slightly more than the 207. $60,000 or £30,000. Will that be a better choice?

About a billion times better, yes! The 207 is a hateful car if you're even remotely interested in getting some fun out of driving. Your Nan would love it though.

Had a mk 2 Astra about ten years ago over their, the saloon no less. Seem to remember it was about £40k for the company to buy, horrid as well. Tax was 150% I think then plus you had to bid for a license which allowed you to buy a car....

Don't you also have to prove that you first have access to a garage before you can buy a car over there? Or is that only in Japan?

Yep, that's what you call a certificate of entitlement. And it now cost $77,000 or £39,000. You got to pay for that first before you get own a new car. So our car prices will include that.

So even if a Chery QQ cost £100. You pay to pay £39,100 for the new Chery. (China Brand car)

Don't have to. But you will have to purchase a parking space at about £25 a month anyway.
