2005 Peugeot 407 SW 2.0 HDI 136
This car is quiet, stylish cruiser that loves curves
This is my first Peugeot, I bought it because of its fantastic styling.
Peugeot 407 SW is a great car, especially for longer journeys. My greatest impression is that the 407 does not make you tired after a long drive.
This car is not quite as good for city driving. It is long and the front overhang is relatively low. However, this car attracts attention wherever you are, trust me.
My friend, who has a Mazda 6 estate with almost the same engine (2.0HDI 120 hp) and I compared the two cars. You definitely sit higher in the Peugeot, the gear box is definitely better put together compared to Mazda. However, gears in 407 are definitely designed for journeys, not for race, which is fine with me. Also, Peugeot is significantly quieter and the cabin trim is better than Mazda.
It handles beautifully in curves. You have to try Peugeot 407 in curves. You will love it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
