The Peugeot 407 Elixir | Part Two

The Peugeot 407 Elixir Concept Car


The bright passenger compartment features impressive materials and light, high quality leather. This is bordered at the top by aluminium inserts that run the length of the interior as far as each end of the fascia panel.

The 407 Elixir has pre-tensioning seatbelts with a seatbelt-not-fastened indicator for each of the four seats. Passengers are protected by nine airbags, one of which – incorporated in the steering column – protects the driver’s knees.

Power for the 407 Elixir is provided by an all-new, 6-cylinder 2,700cc HDi diesel engine. This engine features the latest-generation particulate emission filter, ensuring automatic regeneration without any mileage limitations.

The maximum power developed by this DT17 type diesel engine is 148 kW (more than 200 bhp), with a maximum torque figure of 440 Nm.

The transmission adopts a ‘Tiptronic’ style sequential gearbox, with a gear lever allowing either 100 % automatic operation or manual, sequential control over gear changes.

Elixir has dual wishbone suspension at the front and the latest generation multi-arm system at the rear – combined with a new Electronic Stability Programme (ESP).

This state-of-the-art suspension technology offers high-quality road holding and unrivalled comfort, ensuring genuine driving pleasure – a true Peugeot trademark.
