As the Geneva Motor Show comes to a close, Warranty Direct has revealed that the most reliable car to come out is the Peugeot 207.

The French hatchback is certainly dependable, with only one in 17 breaking down in an average year.

Warranty Direct analysed more than 20,000 live policies on European cars aged 3 to 7 years for its Reliability Index website.

The Fiat Panda is the second most reliable, with only 14% of owners likely to have to pay for repairs, followed by the Peugeot 206 CC, which, as well as needing relatively little attention, is also cheap to repair when it does go wrong, costing on average £185 to put right.

To measure a car's overall reliability and running costs, Warranty Direct's Reliability Index reviews rate of failure, average mileage, age and repair cost to calculate its rating, called Reliability Index.
