Peugeot introduces 807 HDi diesel automatic.

Peugeot has introduced an increasingly popular combination for its 807 people-carrier in the form of a diesel automatic, a rarity until recently.

The four-speed automatic gearbox on the 2.0 litre HDi diesel engine joins the already available 2.0 litre petrol 807 models, expanding the line-up to 20 variants.

The company says that sales of the 807 people carrier have exceeded expectations since its launch in January.

It has been helped further by the award of five stars by Euro NCAP, which is the highest crash protection rating. The auto box is fitted with tiptronic control, and incorporates an electronic service monitor system, which indicates when the gearbox oil requires changing dependent on the gearbox operating temperature and usage.

The gearbox has an electronic control unit, which in full automatic mode adapts itself to the motorist's driving style and road conditions, taking into account engine speed, vehicle speed and the position of the accelerator pedal. Another new feature of the 807 HDi diesel automatic is the electronic stability program, which now becomes as standard, which provides a significant improvement in active safety.

Prices for the 807 HDi diesel automatic start from pounds 21,100 for the 2.0 litre HDi diesel LX, rising to pounds 24,860 for the Executive SE 2.0 HDi.
