Our images are based on the '5 by Peugeot' concept car that was revealed at the Geneva motor show last month.
The grille, headlamps and prominent badge are all elements that we think will remain on the finished car that's likely to appear at the Paris motor show this autumn.
Hybrid version planned
The '5 by Peugeot' concept car used the hybrid powertrain first employed in the 3008 Hybrid4. With a 163bhp 2.0-litre diesel engine and a 37bhp electric motor, the system gives the concept car average fuel consumption of 74.3mpg and emissions of just 99g/km.
Sales of the 407 replacement, which is expected to be called 508, will start early next year and will go up against vehicles such as the Ford Mondeo, Renault Laguna and Vauxhall Insignia.
