Peugeot’s 107 shares most of its parts with the Citroen C1 and Toyota Aygo. However, it is cheaper to buy than either thanks to £3,000 discounts available online.
If you’re looking for a cheap car to buy and run, look no further than the Peugeot 107. Although it is very similar to sister models from Citroen and Toyota, we’ve found bigger discounts on the 107.
The 107 is a very compact car, but there’s plenty of space inside for passengers and the small engine provides reasonable acceleration. As a bonus, claimed fuel economy is good and most models have free car tax because of to their low CO2 emissions.
The suspension is a little firm, though, so test drive the 107 before you sign on the dotted line.

Hot Car Deal hunters please note:
- The car brokers and deals featured are not vetted, endorsed or recommended by Which?. Always check the specifics of the deal so you know exactly what you are getting and who is supplying the car. Make sure all aspects of the deal are confirmed in writing before committing to buy.
- Not all brokers deal in UK sourced vehicles, and this may have an impact on standard equipment and warranty levels.
- The term ‘pre-reg’ or ‘pre-registered’ refers to vehicles that are brand new but already registered with the DVLA. This means that you will appear as the second owner on the V5 registration document.
- Beware of unscrupulous brokers who tell you they will have to retain the V5 registration document for a period of time after your purchase of the car. Vehicles sold this way may be cheap, but there are legal implications, including the risk that you the buyer could be committing a criminal offence when you drive the car, so they should be avoided.
