The Peugeot 407 is a large family car produced by the French automaker Peugeot since 2004. It is available in saloon, coupé and estate variants, with both Diesel and petrol engines. The petrol engines range from 1.8 to 3.0-litres displacement, whereas the diesels are 1.6, 2.0, 2.2 and 2.7-litre V6.

The 407 was the successor to the hugely successful Peugeot 406, and was launched on May 27 2004. The streamlined design of the car was seen as quite radical, its most distinctive features being its large front grille and the steeply raked screen pillars.

The estate, known as the 407 SW, was launched four months after the saloon, whereas the coupé has been on sale since early 2006.

Recent Changes[]

  • For 2009 MY, Peugeot adds a new trim package for the 407 Coupe, dubbed Bellagio. The high-end spec model comes with the RT4 Multi Media System which features goodies like Colour Satellite Navigation, TMC traffic information, (Traffic management information) audible GSM phone (with inbuilt voice activated hands free controls) & 30GB MP3 player. Besides that the car also features 18" Galaxy alloy wheels, twin chromed exhaust pipes and unique Flamenco Red or Nera Black metallic livery. This is all on top of the Sport trim package's list of standard equipment. Finally, motivation for the coupe will come from the 136 hp 2.0 litre HDi Diesel engine which falls into band D of vehicle excise duty thanks to emissions of 156g/km of CO2.[1]

"It has the zip of a chairlift. With plodding performance and steady-as-she-goes handling, the only thing this car will make you feel like is a cup of Horlicks with a splash of hemlock. Empty-nesters should buy a PlayStation instead, and spend the afternoon shooting crack whores." Jeremy Clarkson, Top Gear (407 Coupe 2.7 V6 HDi SE)

Design quirks and oddities[]

The first advertisement, known as "The Toys" or "Les Jouets", features life-size toy cars shown up by the sleek newly released Peugeot 407. Directed by Philippe André for French agency BETC Euro RSCG, the advert was filmed in Sydney, Australia (we see cars crossing the Sydney Harbour Bridge). André developed twenty model cars especially for the shoot. The soundtrack is provided by French duo, The Film, (Guillaume Brière and Benjamin Lebeau) with their song Can You Touch Me, an adaptation of their earlier song, Can You Trust Me.

The follow up ad features the same scenario of life-size toy cars in Sydney, this time taking a new Peugeot 407 SW out of the city to a beachside home. Along the way we see old and decrepit stationwagons breaking down or suffering from image problems. The soundtrack features (I'm Gonna) Kick You Out by the Caesars, taken from their album, 39 Minutes of Bliss (in an Otherwise Meaningless World).

The commercials use the slogan Playtime is Over, which some perceive to be a retort to the Renault's Laguna slogan Serious Playtime.


  • The Peugeot 407 has been awarded for 2004 Scotland's Car Of The Year.
