The new ‘Sport’ model introduces a 2.7-litre twin-turbo HDi diesel, first seen in the 407 Coupe and is also available in the range-topping ‘Executive’ model.
The Sport is available with either a 2.2-litre petrol or HDi 136 Diesel engine. Standard features, over the SE, include electric adjustment of the half-leather/Zagros trimmed front seats, six-disc CD autochanger, rear parking aid and a multi-function colour display screen. A Bluetooth hands free telephone kit is also fitted as standard, as it is on the SE model.
The new 2.7 V6 HDi diesel unit is now available in Executive trim. The DPFS (diesel particle filter system) equipped twin-turbo engine, with 205bhp is mated to a six-speed automatic gearbox, with tiptronic controls. The Executive model can also be specified with the 3.0-litre V6 petrol automatic or HDi 136 Diesel engine, in either manual or automatic transmission. All models now feature 18-inch Soleil alloy wheels and body-coloured rubbing strips.
Executive specification adds the Peugeot RT3 system, combining single CD/RDS radio, integrated GSM mobile telephone colour satellite navigation and voice activation. Further enhancements include xenon headlamps, rear seat side airbags, full leather interior, laminated side windows, heated front seats, rear side window sun blinds and a rear screen sunblind on saloon models.
The latest 407 Saloon and SW range also sees the introduction of a new HDi 136 six-speed automatic version in SE, Sport and Executive trim levels.
Smartnav remains as a standard fit item on all UK registered 407 cars until March 31.
