The 607 was restyled in 2004, with the most notable modifications being the new front end and the 2.7 HDi V6 engine engine, capable of more than 200bhp (150kW), mated to a new 6-speed automatic gearbox, which is now also available on the V6 petrol model.
The 607 is frequently used as a taxi on the Continent; Portugal uses them as airport taxis in Faro Airport; these versions are usually 3.0 V6 or 2.2 HDi versions; the Benelux countries also use them as well, but less frequently at airports.
The Peugeot 607 Paladine is a special landaulet version of the 607 which was developed and built in 2000 in cooperation with Heuliez, as a concept car. The engine is the 3.0 V6. It is lengthened by 500millimetres (20in) (making it more than 5m (200in) long), and the rear part is equipped with a retractable metallic roof similar to the Peugeot 206's or 307's CC. It is a one-off design.
The special leather interior was developed in cooperation with Hermès.
