First revealed in 2005, the Peugeot 407 Coupe receives two new engines for the 2009MY: a V6 3.0 litre HDi PEF 241 bhp and 2.0 litre HDi PEF 163 bhp.
The new V6 HDi PEF 3.0-litre engine, coupled with a 6-speed sequential automatic gearbox, develops a maximum power output of 241 bhp at 3,800 rpm supplemented by maximum torque of 450 Nm from 1,600 rpm - a value which remains unchanged up to 3,600 rpm. With this engine, the 407 Coupé becomes the most powerful production vehicle ever constructed by Peugeot in its 120 years history as a car manufacturer.
The new 2.0-litre HDi PEF 163 bhp at 3,750 rpm is coupled with a 6-speed manual gearbox. With this power and a maximum torque of 340 Nm (constant between 2,000 and 3,000 rpm), this 4 cylinder engine is the perfect counterpart to the V6 HDi PEF and brings genuine appeal for its combined attributes in terms of purchase price, running costs and a top-of-the-range specification.
