From Peugeot press: 2004 saw the debut of the Peugeot 407 Saloon and Peugeot 407 SW, launched to widespread acclaim for their bold, elegant styling and sporting dynamics, particularly for road holding efficiency. The Peugeot 407 Saloon received its World Premiere at the Geneva Motor Show and the Peugeot 407 SW extended the appeal with versatility for its occupants in the summer of the same year.
Peugeot based the design of the 407 around a number of core customer motoring values: styling and technology, driver involvement in both the Saloon and SW models, with the versatility of the SW particularly well suited to leisure pursuits for both families and business activities.
It is available with a choice of four- and six-cylinder engines featuring the latest technology, particularly on the HDi Diesel versions, the most popular engine specified in the Peugeot 407.
These include an uprated 2.0-litre HDi engine with a 6-speed manual gearbox which develops a power of 103 kW (140bhp), an increase of 3kW (4bhp). It also benefits from a fuel consumption of 5.6 litres/100km (42.0mpg) and CO2 emissions reduced to 150g/km. This engine is approved in accordance with future Euro 5 regulation standards. This new specification testifies Peugeot's ongoing commitment to achieve the best possible environmental performance on the new Peugeot 407.
For example, after the standard fitment of an additive-enhanced diesel particulate filter system (FAP) on HDi Diesel powered 407s and following the introduction of the 1.6-litre HDi FAP engine (110bhp), particularly well suited as a fleet vehicle thanks to its low fuel consumption and CO2 emissions (only 140g/km for the Saloon and SW), a new 2.0-litre 'Bioflex' engine operates on E85 fuel and will be available for destinations where road tax incentives favour biofuels, with their environmental benefits.
