Immaculate condition, ultra-low mileage example of this popular mid-sized family hatchback, in special edition Verve specification with the ULEZ compliant 1.4-litre petrol engine and five-speed manual gearbox.  Full service history, just serviced including replacement of cambelt and water pump.  New clutch just fitted.   Fully equipped with electric front windows, alloy wheels, CD-player etc.

In the details below, you’ll find full details of the specification, vehicle history, and a thoroughly detailed condition report.

When introduced in 2006, the Peugeot 207 was a sensation.  Its neat styling, economical engines, and general refinement were a leap ahead from the previous, smaller 206.  It stayed in production until 2012, and is now becoming a rarer sight on our roads – which seems a shame.  This particular example, however, has loads of life left in it!

This example has come into my stock from a fellow resident at the retirement flats where my mother lives.   Knowing that I’m a car dealer, Tony – the previous, and only, owner of this 207 – asked if I would like to buy it into stock, as he had decided that advancing years and declining mobility meant that he would have to give up driving.  I took one look at the overall condition and the ultra-low mileage, and bought it on the spot!

When I picked it up from Bristol, I noted a scuff to one door and to a bumper corner – reflecting its usage in a busy city environment – and on the drive back to my house I also noted that the clutch was taking up far higher than I might have expected for a car with just 15000 miles on the clock – perhaps also reflecting both Tony’s driving style and its use in a city known for its steep hills.  Anyway – the bodywork has been repaired, the clutch has been replaced, along with some other timely maintenance, and now the car is as good as new and ready to go on and give excellent service to its lucky new owner.

This example is a Verve limited edition, and was newly registered to Tony in February 2009.  Already relatively elderly, Tony didn’t use the car much – and the MoT history and full servicing history is testament to a regular, low usage, adding only around 1000 miles per year throughout its life.  So here it is now, fourteen and a half years old, having only just clicked past 15,000 miles from new – and in the sort of condition that you would expect from such low mileage.

It is fitted with the 1.4-litre 4-cylinder 8-valve petrol injection engine.  This gives a power output of 73bhp and 118NM torque, delivered through a five-speed manual gearbox to the front wheels.  The performance is perhaps best described as “adequate” – it is no road burner, taking 15.2 seconds to get to 60 mph on its way to a 106mph top speed (where legal, of course), but it doesn’t really feel outpaced in use; it keeps up with the prevailing traffic without fuss, and settles down to a comfortable cruise at motorway speeds.  Where it does shine through though is in fuel economy, with government fuel test results of 56.5 mpg on the Extra Urban test cycle and 44.8mpg combined. Its petrol engine also means that the car is ULEZ and Clean Air Zone compliant.

Out on the road, it is thoroughly competent.  It performs well, driving smoothly with good roadholding and handling, and remaining quiet and comfortable throughout with generous and supportive seats.  It’s also well equipped in this trim level, with metallic paint, Air Conditioning, Alloy Wheels, CD-player, electric front windows, and electrically adjusted and heated door mirrors.  There’s all the right safety kit too, such as ABS, electronic brakeforce distribution, pre-tensioning seat belts, Driver, Passenger, Side and Curtain Airbags, and ISOFIX mounting points to the outer rear seats.

The 207 is finished in a stunning and eye-catching glossy metallic Neysha Blue , set off by the smart 15” alloy wheels.  Given its age, there are inevitably a few touched-in stone chips and light scratches here and there, and a couple of small patches of bird poo damage to the paintwork, but overall it is in excellent condition.  The interior is in charcoal and light-grey cloth trim, with black carpets and new overmats.  Tony is a non-smoker, so the cigar lighter is unused. 

The recorded mileage of just 15,180 miles is warranted to be correct.  The Peugeot has a thorough service history, with details of eight services recorded in the stamped-up service book – a combination of Peugeot Main Agent and independent garages.  Every servicing receipt is also present to show the work completed.  As there was no previous record of it having been changed, I asked my servicing agents to change the cam belt and water pump, as well as completing a full major service.  As mentioned above, the clutch has also been changed – it wasn’t at the point of slipping, but the pedal was high, and I thought it prudent to get this replaced.  The full servicing details are shown below.
The in-car display now states that there are 19,900 miles to go before the next service is due.

The Peugeot has also been fully valeted and Experian Data Checked (like HPI) and is clear (again, as you would expect).  The owner’s handbook, service book, radio guide etc are all present with the car.

Giving it a good rating of 3.5 stars out of five, Parker’s Used Car Guide highlights its neat styling, great safety features and fun handling, and comments:-

“The 207 is proof that Peugeot is still a master when it comes to small cars. It’s roomy, well equipped, attractively styled and comes with strong petrol and diesel engines. Peugeot’s 207 is also good to drive with decent steering and a comfortable ride. 
The 207 delivers competent and assured handling along with a comfortable drive. It’s not particularly fun, but it feels composed and safe at all times. The power-assisted steering is fairly precise and artificially weights-up when you take corners at speed to give more feeling, but it requires more input on the motorway for easier cruising. Body roll is well controlled and the ride is very good over most surfaces.
The attractive dash is clear and easy-to-use while the driving position is excellent, with a highly adjustable driver’s seat and a steering wheel that adjusts for height and reach. Much attention has been paid to the look of the instrument dials, which are chrome ringed while a large amount of glass means all-round visibility is excellent and gives a pleasant and airy feel.  The 207 has a light and attractive cabin with some quality materials and a modern design. The controls are clearly laid out but the stereo switches are a little fiddly. The seats are comfortable though and offer enough support for longer journeys.  It’s easier to access the rear of the five-door than the three, as is the case with most hatchbacks. On the whole it’s quiet on the road, with just a small amount of engine noise at speed. There’s not too much to grumble about regarding Peugeot 207 comfort.
All engines are relatively frugal and shouldn’t break the bank when it comes to running costs. Most buyers will be happy with the economical petrol versions.  The pick of the petrols is in fact the 1.4-litre available with 75bhp or 90bhp. It’s nippy, easy to drive around town and more than capable on the motorway. 

In addition to a top five-star Euro NCAP crash-test rating, the Peugeot 207 safety portfolio includes dual front, side and curtain airbags (with the exception of the entry Urban model), five three-point seatbelts, two Isofix childseat anchor points and strong side and front impact protection. Key security features include remote central locking with deadlocks, automatic locking once the car reaches 6mph and an immobiliser.
Peugeot 207 reliability shouldn’t cause you many problems.

Out on the road, the 207 does everything that it should do calmly and efficiently.  It cruises along comfortably with excellent road manners.  The supportive seats and airy cabin design give great forward visibility, and all the controls fall easily and logically to the hands.  It’s well equipped too with all the kit that you really need, and this example looks very smart indeed in its glossy Neysha Blue metallic paintwork and shiny alloy wheels.

As with all our vehicles, the 207 comes with a 100-point inspection report covering all items of functionality and a mechanical inspection conducted by our service agents.   If you wish to do so, you can also optionally purchase a comprehensive Warranty Wise Bronze vehicle warranty covering 100% of the repair cost on all major components, and a £75 per hour labour rate, with a maximum of £500 per claim.  This would cost £179 for 6-months, £249 for a year or £449 for 24-months.  Please click on “our services” above for more details.

Bodywork and Interior Condition
> As you can see from the photos, the bodywork is in outstanding condition. 
> Inevitably, there are a few stone chips, marks and light scratches commensurate with the age and mileage, but none of this detracts from the look of the car and overall it looks like a new car
> There are a couple of small patches of bird poo or tree-lime damage (one on the roof and one on the rear nearside quarter), but there aren’t significant or very noticeable.  There’s also a very small scuff to the lower nearside corner of the front bumper, and a number of touched-in chips to the door jambs where the doors have been accidentally shut on the seatbelts.  There’s also a small area at the rear of the driver’s door where the door looks to have been opened into a wall.  That sounds like it adds up to something noticeable or significant – but it doesn’t.  I’m being very picky and fussy here, and mentioning damage that many people wouldn’t even notice – and on a car of this age it is very insignificant.  Overall, the car looks fabulous.
> The interior is in excellent condition, reflecting its very light usage, with no damage to the charcoal and light-grey fabric seats or carpets, assisted by the colour-trimmed floor overmats front and rear
> There is some wear to the rubber door seal on the driver’s door jamb, simply where this has been brushed past as the last owner has been getting in and out of the car

Mechanical Condition and Wheels/Tyres

> The car has covered just over 15,100 miles.  It goes very well indeed – in fact, it drives just like a new car .  It runs, steers, stops and goes round corners even better than you might expect.  There is no hint of a squeak or rattle anywhere.
> The road wheels are four five-spoke 15” alloys; one has some very minor kerbing marks, but none have any scuffing or damage to the spokes
> One front road tyre is a budget with 7mm of tread; the other is a Michelin Energy Saver with 5mm of tread.  The rear tyres are a pair of Michelin Energy Savers, one with 7mm of tread and the other with between 5mm-6mm of tread.  The Michelin tyres may be original – there is some evidence of age-related cracking, but not to the extent of this being an MoT concern. The spare is a barely-used Continental Space Saver tyre with 3mm of tread
> The jack, wheelbrace and locking wheelnut key are all present

So – to review – this is an opportunity to acquire an excellent example of this popular mid-range family hatchback.  If you can ignore the registration plate, this is effectively a nearly-new car.  It looks, drives and behaves like a one year-old example.  It benefits from the smooth 1.4-litre petrol engine matched with the 5-speed gearbox, and a comprehensive equipment level including air conditioning, alloy wheels, CD-player, electric windows and mirrors etc.  The gorgeous metallic blue paintwork and two-tone grey interior are in outstanding condition, and the car looks extremely smart and well-presented throughout.  This particular example with its excellent service history, recent service, new cambelt/water-pump, new clutch, full valet, HPI-check and ultra-low mileage makes a very compelling case for itself; in effect, it is a virtually new car for less than £4000 – so it also offers amazing value for money too.
