The new Peugeot 407 – successor to the much-loved 406 – is set to return Peugeot to dominance within the upper-medium segment of the new car market. With its bold, sporting design, Peugeot has given the new range a high tech specification that provides character, dynamism and real-world driving pleasure in equal measures.
The new 407 takes the market segment into new territory, with its dynamically engineered chassis featuring new double wishbone front suspension and multi-link rear suspension, a comprehensive safety package and an advanced engine line up that includes both refined and powerful petrol engines with new, cutting-edge diesel technology.
"Purposeful" is the word that best describes the exterior styling of the 407. The stylists have created a balance that is achieved through a long bonnet and a compact rear. Viewed from any angle, the 407 has uncluttered, taut lines and possesses a look that is truly unique in the market place. With prices starting from as little as £14,750, the 407 offers exceptional value for money.Published 30 May 2004
