Our test vehicle was equipped with rear parking sensors which are necessary for manoeuvring a vehicle of this size. You do have to consider the 807's height when parking in underground car parks and height restricted areas. Peugeot have also thoughtfully installed a retractable ‘child-check’ surveillance mirror which enables front seat occupants to keep a watchful eye on the kids in the back.
As with any MPV practicality and storage is paramount and the 807 features 2 upper dashboard storage compartments, under dashboard storage area below the steering wheel, storage drawers underneath the driver and front passengers seats, both the front and 2nd row doors feature door bins with bottle holder, can holder and storage area, removable dustbin, multi purpose centre console with removable ashtray, cup holder and air conditioned storage for 3 drinks cans, 2 cup holders per rear seat shells when folded.
The boot is relatively large for an MPV and with all the seats in place it can swallow a minimum of 324 litres of luggage, and this expands to 2948 litres when the five rear seats have been removed. With the 2nd and 3rd row seats removed an uninterrupted, flat floor length of more than 3.1 metres is available. Our test vehicle featured a boot net which is useful for securing the weekly shop or luggage. A load area cover for a 6/7/8 seat configuration is standard as are 2 boot lights.
Our test car featured optional (£1,350) RT3 colour satellite navigation incorporating a GSM phone. The navigation system is very easy to use and well worth investing in if you venture away from home on a regular basis. You can even put your own mobile phone sim card into the dashboard slot and use your phone safely on a hands free basis. A microphone is built into the roof console, enabling the driver to talk to their caller and the caller’s voice to be heard via the radio speakers and text messages to be read out electronically for the driver to hear.
