In 2003, a new Peugeot 807 appeared on the European market, a follower and receiver of the model 806, also the result of industrial collaboration between Fiat Auto and PSA Peugeot Citroen. The car turned out harmonious, multi-purpose and very respectable. The design and the lower part of the body borrowed from the model 806, but significantly modified to further improve safety and stability on the road. The body has a length of 4.73 meters, a wheelbase of 2.82 meters, is equipped with two hinged doors in front and two sliding doors in the back (which can be equipped with an electric drive). The interior is made in a simple, elegant and modern style.
Especially noteworthy is the cabin with its dashboard in the form of an arc, which, together with a panoramic tinted, heat-resistant windscreen, creates a sense of space and light. The car generally has a large glass area, which, by the way, can be increased by ordering an additional triple sunroof. The possibilities of salon transformation are almost endless. Any of the seats can be dismantled separately (except for the two front) or removed. The dismantling procedure does not cause any difficulties. If you order a rear seat for the third row when buying, you can place up to 8 people in the car.
In addition, each of the backs of the second and third rows can take a horizontal position, thus giving the opportunity to carry long things or turning into a camp table. In addition, folding tables are available in the backside of the front seats (by type of aircraft). On the second row can comfortably accommodate three people.
Separate seats can be configured individually for each passenger. Access to the third row, does not carry any difficulties due to easy folding and reclining forward any of the extreme seats of the middle row. In order for the driver and the front passenger to move freely around the cabin, the parking brake lever was moved from the cross-seat space to the other side of the driver's seat - between him and the threshold. The instrument panel, covered with cloth in some places, looks cozy and neat. In the center of the torpedo are three separate dials: speedometer, tachometer, fuel consumption indicator and coolant temperature.
The steering column is adjustable in two planes, in its upper part there is a semi-cylindrical superstructure, on the front side of which an odometer liquid-crystal display and a control lamp unit are located. As a result, all the necessary information is right before your eyes. The cabin provides a large number of all kinds of "glove compartments", holders, pockets and shelves for things.
Four closed containers are hidden in the front panel, and the ashtray leaving the center console can be easily transformed into a double cup holder. There are even pockets in the luggage compartment trim. The capacity of the luggage compartment ranges from 324 liters (with three rows of seats) to 2.948 liters, if only 2 seats remain in the cabin and the car is loaded to the top.
If the car is equipped with two rows of seats, the luggage compartment volume is 840 liters to the window level and 1,498 liters at full load to the top. From a technical point of view, the vehicle equipment is at a fairly high level: in addition to ESP, the serial package also includes a brake assist system. The line of power units consists of four engines: two petrol - 16-valve, 2.2-liter, V6 24-valve, 3.0-liter, two diesel - 16-valve, 2.0-liter and 2, 2 liters. The two-liter HDi diesel engine is brand new in the Peugeot range. Its power is 133 hp, and thanks to the overboost function, the torque is 340 Nm.
The 2.2-liter gasoline engine can be aggregated with both a manual 6-speed transmission and the 4-speed Tiptronic automatic transmission. V6 engine with 211 HP Only used with the new Porsche Tiptronic System automatic transmission. A high level of passive safety is ensured by: seven three-point seat belts, one of which is connected to the central seat, and six airbags, two of which are curtain airbags, protecting the heads of passengers on all three rows of seats.
To help the driver, there are such systems as: a programmable overspeed alarm, electronically adjustable rear-view mirrors, a rear window wiper, an original child observation mirror (or a “conversational” mirror), and many other systems that depend on the configuration.
