A modern, distinctive interior is let down by the quality of the wood inlays and some rather sloppy ergonomics. The fact that the button to operate the sunroof is tucked away behind the gearlever illustrates this. The steering wheel adjusts for rake and reach, but the seat is set too high for taller drivers, even at the electric seat height adjustment’s lowest setting.
Peugeot 607 Saloon space & practicality
Tall drivers will find plenty of headroom in the front of the 607, but not quite enough legroom, and passengers may feel their heads are rather too close to the swooping roof when they sit in the back. The boot, however, is huge. It has a low load height, losing no space at the sides to the suspension. The rear seats split and fold, too.
Peugeot 607 Saloon equipment
A long list of equipment is provided as standard, including cruise control, climate control, satellite-navigation, a CD auto-changer, a built-in hands-free phone, electronic stability control and traction control. In addition, there is leather upholstery, front and rear heated seats, parking sensors and metallic paint. In fact, the only option is the exterior colour.
