New frugal version of Peugeot's shark-nosed two-door arrives in UK
16 August 2007

Peugeot’s revised its slow-selling 407 Coupe range, dropping the SE and GT trims and introducing one trim level: ‘Sport’.At the same time, the French firm is putting a distinctly unsporting 2.0-litre four-cylinder HDI oil-burner under the 407’s bonnet.Still, while it’s not especially sporting (0-62mph takes 10.1sec), it is parsimonious, returning 48.0mpg combined fuel economy and emitting 156g/km of CO2.The £19,995 2.0 HDI joins the 2.7-litre V6 diesel and the 2.2-litre and 3.0-litre petrols in the 407 coupe range.All cars get xenon lights, dual-zone climate control and auto lights and wipers. Leather trim and sat-nav are optional.

    Super saloon deploys four-wheel drive to improve every facet of its driving experience. Faster and more capable than any, and more exciting than most, of its celebrated predecessors

    More power and an intoxicating soundtrack have breathed new life into our love affair with the biggest, baddest Range Rover Sport variant

    The new Vantage has been developed as a Porsche 911 beater, and our first taste on UK roads suggests it can live up to that bold claim
