Peugeot 407 is produced by the French automaker, PSA Peugeot Citroën, who is known to be the second largest carmaker. This large family car was produced in the years 2004 until 2010, and it was created as a successor of the Peugeot 406, a large family car that was produced from 1994 until 2004.
The 407 follows an FF layout or the front engine, front wheel drive layout. It is available in several body styles including a two door coupé, a four door sedan, and a five door station wagon. This car is related to the Citroën C5, which is also a large family car produced in the year 2001. This was assembled in Rennes, Brittany, France, and it was succeeded by the Peugeot 508 when it ceased production in 2010.
Several Peugeot 407 concept cars are available, one of which is named the 407 Elixir, which is the 407’s saloon version and is displayed at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 2003. The race car version is the 407 Silhouette, and the 407 Prologue, which was shown at the Geneva Motor Show in 2005, was the closest version to the coupé.
The 407 has been noted for its appearances in several commercials and films. The first advertisement that it appeared on is called The Toys or Les Jouets, and it was also used in Taxi 4, a comedy film released in 2007.
