Peugeot 607 2004Thr Peugeot 607 was launched in 1999, to replace the 605. It used its predecessor's chassis but had an all-new, more modern look layout. The motor range - 2.2 and 3.0 petrol, and 2.2 diesel - were completely new. Equipment levels were also high, with all models getting climate control, CD player, electric windows, airbags, anti-lock braking system and central locking as traditional.

However, since it began selling executive vehicles in the 1970s, Peugeot has always struggled to succeed and the Peugeot 607 has continued this trend. In most European markets outside of France, sales are only a tiny fraction of those of the BMW 5-series and Mercedes-Benz E-class. In its home sphere, it is often chosen for official usage, particularly as Renault's Vel Satis is considered too unconventional. Motoring journalists such as Jeremy Clarkson disliked the Peugeot 607. They claimed it had handling that was not up to Peugeot's usual good standards. Clarkson even claimed it was the worst vehicle ever made.

The Peugeot 607 was restyled in 2004, most notable modifications being the new front end and the 2. 7 Hdi V6 motor motor, capable of more than 200 bhp, and mated to a new 6-speed automatic gearbox, which is now also available on the V6 petrol model.
