Here at Motorway we are experienced buyers of old and nearly-new Peugeot cars and are able to pay premium prices to buy Peugeots of all kinds. We are specialist Peugeot car buyers and find the brand to be highly sellable in the car market – we pass on this excellent re-saleability with a competitive offer to buy your car.
Peugeot is one of the most popular car brands to sell through Motorway. We can buy a Peugeot that’s been owned for a few months, a Peugeot that’s 1-3 years old, right up to a car with multiple owners that’s 5-10 years old or more. From a new Peugeot 308 GT, to a nearly-new Peugeot 2008 SUV, right up to an ageing Peugeot 3008 gathering dust in your garage, we look to buy all Peugeot cars new and old. We will even do our best to buy very old motors like the Peugeot 205 – we will do our best to offer you a price!
In terms of the price we offer for your Peugeot, we would aim to beat your local car dealer, online classified car ads and trade-in quotes with our online valuations. Once we have collected all the information we need, we would look to follow through with a final price that is higher than other quotes you may have received elsewhere from other Peugeot buyers.
Savvy car sellers will shop around at the likes of Autotrader, WeWantAnyCar and eBay to see what price they can get for their car, we are well aware of this behaviour and hope to beat or match any price you may have received.
Peugeot is the UK’s 4th most popular car brand, with just over 2 million cars on the road as of October 2016. This puts them just behind Volkswagen and ahead of BMW in the popularity stakes – and surprisingly they actually outnumber other major ubiquitous car makes including Nissan, Renault and Toyota. Peugeot’s car range has expanded hugely in recent years, with the 308, 3008 and 208 being three of their bestsellers in the latest model lineup.
The Peugeot range has seen some wide-scale upgrading in recent years. The fresh collection (for 2016) is epitomised by the sleek and cool city car – the Peugeot 108 – it’s a compact 3-door, available as a hatchback or ‘TOP! Cabrio’. Also new is the Peugeot 208 ‘Roland Garros’ edition – uber-modern, chic and the ultimate big city auto. The other hot new entrant is the Peugeot 308, a sensational 5-door with dynamic styling topped off with an efficient engine, smart touch technology and a unique Peugeot i-Cockpit® integration in the dashboard.
Beyond newer models, fans of the Peugeot brand will also remember older models like the Peugeot 205 (1983-1998) which was voted 'Car of the Decade' by Car Magazine, the Peugeot 206 (1998-2006) actually Peugeot's best-ever selling car of all time, the Peugeot 306 (1993-2001) included in the Top 10 Best Selling Cars in Britain (1994-1998) and finally, the Peugeot 406 (1995-2004) named the 'What Car? Car of the Year' in 1996. Quite a heritage!
It’s no wonder Peugeot is known as a very reliable brand and amazingly many 1950s and 1960s models are still running and on the roads in Africa and Cuba, where Peugeot is fondly called "the lion of the road".
Peugeot was originally started as a family business from Sochaux – the early days of the company predated the current Peugeot car brand we know today. Its origins started as far back as 1810 and before cars, manufactured coffee mills and bicycles.
In November 1858, even before it was known specifically for cars, the forefather of the company Émile Peugeot applied for the now famous lion trademark. However, it was Armand Peugeot who made automobiles their speciality – he built the company's very first car collaborating with Leon Serpollet in 1889 (which in truth was more of an unreliable ‘steam tricycle’ than a motor vehicle!)
Things moved fast and the first 3-wheeled attempt was followed in 1890 by an internal combustion-engine (4-wheeled) car with a Panhard-Daimler engine. However, things proved fractious within the Peugeot family, and despite the sales success of their early motors, Armand Peugeot left the original setup and founded the Société des Automobiles Peugeot in 1896. The company we now know as Peugeot was formed.
Peugeot’s origin are inextricably linked with the growth of the car industry in France, however it has not always been an easy ride. These days, the French car manufacturer is now part of Groupe PSA which in February 2014 had some serious financial issues forcing the shareholders to agree a recapitalisation plan when Dongfeng Motors and the French government bought a 14% stake in the company to keep it going.
Peugeot has won countless international awards for its vehicles – including four European Car of the Year awards throughout its history.
In both 2013 and 2014, Peugeot was ranked the second best car make for average CO2 emissions amongst the major brands in Europe (pipped by Renault cars who had a lower average at 114.9g CO2/ km).
