View all Peugeot 407 reviews
Parkers overall rating: 3.5 out of 5 3.5


Distinctive styling, good rear passenger space, strong diesel engines


No hatchback version, limited storage, slack gearchange, interior quality could be better


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. There's also no hatchback available (although an estate badged SW is offered) so practicality is compromised.

On the plus side it is well equipped, comfortable and has a five-star crash safety rating while there are some excellent diesel engines available. The model was mildly revised in September 2008 with a tweaked front end and rear bumper along with specification changes and a new SR model.
