The French brand has just unveiled its new 2007 Peugeot 407 SW Sport XS station wagon, the yet another member of the growing XS family. Since the carmaker’s British customers love warmed-up estates so much, the new version of the car comes equipped with a powerful, yet fuel-efficient diesel engine that has its impressive oomph matched by an energetic-looking body kit.

Trying to compete against the German Audi A4 Avant, the sportified wagon sports more aggressive looks and gets some additional power too, featuring new 2.2-liter HDi 16-valve twin-turbocharged oil-burner capable of producing up to 170 horsepower and a maximum of 277 lb-ft (375 Nm) of torque.

The 407 SW Sport XS, which starts at impressive — for a French car — £29,995, features 18-inch Soleil alloys, front bumper and rear tailgate spoilers, a mesh front grille and twin “sports” exhaust pipes.

The French vehicle is available in four metallic colors — Onyx Black, Aluminium, Iron Grey or Halcyon Blue — with Zino half leather upholstery as standard. It can also be ordered with leather upholstery in either Mistral Black or Cerbere Red.

To make the 407 more fun to drive, you may also consider ordering it with the new RT4 Multi-Media system, which will set you back by £995.
