The New Peugeot 807

New Peugeot 807

 

The 21ST Century MPV For All Reasons

The new Peugeot 807 effectively re-invents the full-size MPV, with a combination of world-best safety features, innovative spacious cabin design, state-of-the-art technology, as well as offering excellent ride and handling.

  • A flexible car to suit any lifestyle
  • Dynamic-drive engines and chassis
  • High levels of interior comfort
  • Four star Euro NCAP rating
  • 0% finance available over four years
The core innovations of the 807 are the electric sliding doors which can be opened, closed or locked at the touch of a button, curtain airbags which run the full length of the cabin offering passengers in all six window seats protection in side impacts, and a ‘child check’ surveillance mirror so that front occupants can keep an eye on younger passengers.

Available in LX, GLX, Executive and Executive SE trim levels, prices start from £18,295 on the road for the 2.0 petrol LX, through to £24,755 for the 2.2 HDi Executive SE version. The 807 is also available with 0% finance over four years offering families an easy way of affording a vehicle that can suit their every need.

Builds On Sales Success Of 806
Built at the Sevelnord plant near Valenciennes in northern France, the 807 is – as with its predecessor, the 806 – the result of collaboration between PSA Peugeot Citroen and Fiat Auto. The styling clearly identifies the 807 as a member of the modern Peugeot family, and the sleek, feline look – first seen on the Peugeot 206 and since incorporated into every subsequent product from Peugeot – now appears on the MPV, too.

The 807 has been developed from the original 806 platform and architecture, to meet the needs of a new breed of owner. It sits on the same 2823 mm wheelbase but is 273 mm longer at 4727 mm thanks to extensions in both the front and rear overhangs, and is 16 mm wider and 38 mm taller.

To ensure the enlarged dimensions do not result in excess weight that would adversely affect economy and driveability, the roof is made of riveted aluminium plate bonded to the body frame, while the front and rear wings and tailgate are made from impregnated and compressed composite material.
