Peugeot has given its journeyman 807 MPV a facelift, updated specification sheet and twin-turbo power.
The mid-sized MPV now features a new air intake grille with horizontal chrome detailing while the rear-end styling has more chrome finishing.
Interior styling revisions continue the chrome theme, with door handles, the gear knob and fascia panel vents all receiving the sparkling finish.
Befitting a premium MPV, the 807 features a fully integrated rear multimedia system constituting a fold-away, adjustable
16/9 screen and DVD player, both fitted in the central roof area of the vehicle. Two wireless headsets and a remote
control are provided with the system.
Beyond the styling and convenience upgrades, the vaunted 2.2-litre, twin-turbo, direct-injection diesel engine has now migrated from the 407 and 607 to the 807.
Featuring twin parallel turbochargers working in sequence ensure optimal throttle response. Producing 125kW and 370Nm the 2.2 HDi drives through a six-speed manual gearbox with a six-speed tiptronic becoming available later this year.
The new six-speed tiptronic gearbox has a 'shift lock' function that, while the
engine is running, prevents the gear lever from being moved from the 'Park
(P)' position without simultaneously pressing the foot brake. The gearbox will also be driven by a 400Nm version of the 2.2-litre HDi engine, compared to the 370Nm six-speed manual version.
The 807 uses McPherson-type front suspension and a torsion beam rear
suspension, whilst the 807 2.2-litre HDi is also fitted with rear dampers and an anti-roll bar.
807 HDi is exclusively fitted with 16-inch aluminium alloy wheels shod with 215/60 R 16 H tyres, combined with tyre under-inflation sensors.
ABS brakes feature wheel by wheel electronic brake force distribution (EBFD) and
emergency brake assist (EBA) complete the system.
