The Peugeot 407 majors on style in an attempt to tempt buyers away from other mainstream family cars and with its gaping grille and long front overhang it certainly stands out. However newer alternatives like the Citroen C5 and Ford Mondeo are better looking and the Peugeot is no longer as striking as it once was.

Equipment

The 407 launched with four trim levels - S, SE, SV and Executive. The most basic S, which is the only trim level offered with the 1.8-litre engine, is fitted with climate control, a trip computer, electric front windows and a CD stereo. The SE adds an auto-dimming rearview mirror, tyre pressure sensor, electric/folding door mirrors, automatic lights and wipers, rear electric windows and dual-zone climate control. A luxury pack adds part-leather electric seats and parking sensors. The SV model adds a CD autochanger, electric seats and parking sensors to that of an SE, while top-of-the-range Executive models also get leather upholstery, heated seats, xenon headlights, cruise control, rear sun blinds and rear side airbags. SV and Executive models were eventually dropped from the line-up, with Sport and GT models taking their places. In September 2008 a new SR model was introduced which is based on the S but adds 16-inch alloys, SmartNav sat nav and Bluetooth connectivity.
