Peugeot 407 (04 - 11)

The 407 was the comfortable family cruiser from Peugeot that offered an abundance of both space and style – and it seems its good looks and practicality have stood the test of time as it remains a very popular choice on the used market. The design remains fresh thanks to a facelift in 2008 and a good range of fuel efficient engines mean there should be a 407 out there to suit most drivers. A five star NCAP safety rating makes it a safe bet in a crash and the light accurate steering makes it a lot more agile than it looks in tight spaces. A great driving position and all round first-class levels of comfort make it an ideal option for those who spend a lot of time on the road.
