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.

  • Kia Stonic

    18 October 2017
    Handsome entrant into the bulging small crossover market has a strong engine and agile handling, but isn’t as comfortable or complete as rivals
  • Hyundai Kona

    18 October 2017
    Hyundai's funky-looking Kona crossover with a peppy three-cylinder engine makes all the right noises for the car to be a success in a crowded segment
  • Citroën C3 Aircross
    First Drive

    The Citroen C3 Aircross has got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best
  • Skoda-Karoq 2.0 TDI 4x4
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
  • Audi Q7 e-tron
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer
