The 607 is good-looking, spacious and extremely well equipped. It's a fine long-distance cruiser, particularly with the diesel engines which offer impressive performance and excellent refinement
Off the pace compared with its German rivals, its residual values are very poor and the cabin not very classy. Handling around town is cumbersome and the ride can become fidgety
On the road
What it’s like to drive, and how quiet it is
The 607 range is powered by three engines: a smooth 2.0-litre diesel, <\n>which comes with a six-speed <\n>manual gearbox, a 170bhp 2.2-litre twin-turbodiesel and a swift 3.0-litre <\n>V6 petrol powerplant with a six-speed automatic gearbox.
Ride & Handling
This big Peugeot feels stable when travelling on the motorway, and has a supple city ride. However it can’t match the finesse and control of the best in the executive class. Lifeless steering is light around town, but fails to communicate at higher speeds.
The 607’s engines are both smooth and quiet, and road and wind noise is well suppressed from the cabin. The Peugeot’s controls operate with executive smoothness, and little tugging is relayed through the steering wheel as the front wheels cope with their dual role of transferring the power to the road and steering.
