Chronology
Predecessor Peugeot 406
Successor Peugeot 508

The Peugeot 407 is a large family car produced by the French automaker Peugeot from 2004 to 2010. 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 range from 1.6 to 3.0-litre engines.

The 407, along with the larger 607, was superseded by the 508 in early 2011.

According to the European Car of the Year website, the 407 was one of the runner-ups in the 2005 award.

Overview[edit]

Rear view

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[by whom?][citation needed], 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.

Saloon and SW models were given a minor facelift in summer 2008, with most petrol-engined models being withdrawn from sale in the United Kingdom, and other countries of Europe.

Television commercials[edit]

Peugeot 407 SW

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 (Lady) Hear Me Tonight by the Modjo.

The commercials use the slogan Playtime is Over, which some perceive to be a retort to the Renault's Laguna slogan Serious Playtime. In Spanish the slogan given at the end is Volvamos a hablar de automóviles, i.e. Let's talk about cars again.

407 concept cars[edit]

The saloon version of the 407 was firstly previewed with the name "407 Elixir" at the 2003 Frankfurt Motor Show. The "407 Silhouette" is a race car with most design features of the current coupé. A version almost identical to the released coupé was presented at the 2005 Geneva Motor Show under the name "407 Prologue".

The "407 Macarena" is a four-door coupé convertible produced by Heuliez and was presented at the 2006 Geneva Motor Show.

Notable film appearances[edit]

The 407 sedan appeared in the 2007 comedy film Taxi 4, unlike the previous films (1, 2 and 3) which had its predecessor (the 406).[citation needed]

Successor[edit]

In November 2009, Philippe Varin, from PSA, announced that the successor of the Peugeot 607 will not be called Peugeot 608, but instead Peugeot 508, which was officially launched at the Paris Motor Show in October 2010.[4]

The 508 saloon is approximately 12 cm (5 inches) longer than the 407[5] and also replaces the larger Peugeot 607. The Peugeot 408 name is used for a Chinese-built notchback version of the Peugeot 308, that replaces the 407 in America.
