The Peugeot 207 is a lightweight compact van based on the chassis of the 207 car. It's an ideal choice for a small business without the need to carry huge loads but looking for a vehicle that’s a great drive and still does the job. You can pack in 450kg and get a 1.3 metre-long loads on board. It’s available in both 1400cc and 1600cc diesel engines, and you’ll get a very respectable 62mpg out of them. They hold their value well in the second-hand market, and that’s because they’re popular with people who value driving comfort as well as commercial functionality.
The Peugeot 207 van first saw the light of day in 2007, but two years later Peugeot decided to revamp it. It drives much more like a Peugeot 207 than a van of the same size, and for this reason it’s often the choice of people who don’t need a large carrying capacity but tend to do a lot of mileage and don’t want to arrive home stiff and exhausted after wrestling with a typical van for eight hours.
The payload is not at all bad: 450 kg of weight, 1.3m in length and 1.1 cubic metres. That’s a decent use of the available space for a van that is just a metre wide and therefore easy to park on city streets. Both the 1400cc and 1600cc engines are common rail Hdi diesels which provide 62 mpg and CO2 emissions of 120g/kg. The mpg rate in everyday use is good partly because the van itself is light. But why pay to carry around extra weight that you’re not going to use? Both engine sizes yield the same fuel performance, and they also have the same five-speed manual gearbox.
Safety is good in the Peugeot 207, as it inherits some of the safety standards that were used in the passenger version. It has twin airbags, so the passenger is protected. This isn’t always the case in more modern vans, so a definite plus here for the 207. The brakes are ABS and there is EBD - Electronic Brakeforce Distribution. This works with the ABS brakes to send brake power to whichever wheels currently have the greatest grip. This both slows the car and stops the vehicle skidding. The van also has EBA - Electronic Brake Assist. When really strong pressure is needed on the brakes, EBA kicks in with extra braking until the driver takes his or her foot off the brake. Power steering is standard, and the van has sporty front seats to remind you that you’re driving a car-based model.
Security-conscious drivers may particularly like the locking features - the doors lock automatically when you drive off. Good to know if you are in an unfamiliar area, at night, and someone suddenly approaches the van. All the doors have deadlocks, and the van comes fitted with an immobiliser - often an expensive extra on more modern models. The glass is etched in various places with a visible Vehicle Identification Number (VIN), which is a further deterrent to thieves.
The 207 remains a popular choice for business people who favour comfort and nippiness and who want something that’s economical and easy to park.
