The 807 is near identical to the Citroen C8 and Fiat Ulysse people carriers, with only the headlights and grille the real differences. The boxy shape may not do much for looks, but it means plenty of interior space and the ability to carry up to eight adults.

The 807 was one of the first people carriers score a maximum five-star Euro NCAP rating, although it originally received four stars and was retested after Peugeot made improvements. There are six airbags (including sidebags for rear passengers), plus electronic stability control on all models. Deadlocks, remote central locking (with buttons to operate the rear sliding doors) and etched windows are also standard.
