Peugeot's 407 Coupé comes in just one (well-specified) trim level now, though there's a new diesel engine to choose.
A new entry-level diesel engine joins the line-up of the Peugeot 407 Coupé this month, offering buyers the option of improved fuel economy. The 2.0-litre HDi 136, as the name suggests, boasts 136bhp, produced at 4,000rpm. Backing it up is a more significant 240lb.ft of torque, available at just 2,000rpm.
Those figures should ensure that the new model doesn't feel flat-footed next to the slightly cheaper 2.2-litre petrol option. Indeed, figures of 10.1 seconds to 62mph and a top speed of 129mph are perfectly adequate for a car tailored towards effortless cruising. Naturally, the smaller engine uses less fuel than the range-topping V6 diesel and 48mpg on the Combined Cycle is an enticement alone, with CO2 emissions quoted at 156g/km.
The new model is available now at £19,995 on-the-road, joining a rationalised line-up, where all models are now built in the 'Sport' trim level. With that comes an extensive list of standard equipment, including alloys, Xenon lights, cruise control, parking sensors and climate control. Entry-level is the Sport 2.2-litre petrol model at £19,530.
