Peugeot 405 Overview
The Peugeot 405 is classed as a large family car and is produced by the French car manufacturing company Peugeot which is part of the PSA Peugeot Citroen Group. This car was in production from 1987 – 97 in Europe and is still being produced in some countries outside of Europe.

Peugeot 405 History
The Peugeot 405 was first designed as a direct replacement for the Peugeot 505. In 1987 the first 405 rolled off the production line in saloon form and a few months later the estate version was introduced. Straight away there were 10 different versions of the 405 available, with more to follow over its lifetime. This was the last Peugeot to be sold in the US, being discontinued in 1991. There were some minor changes made to the 405 in 1991, mainly affecting the dashboard and the gearboxes. In 1993 a makeover version was introduced with a new rear end design and interior design. The 405 was discontinued in 1997 where it was replaced with the Peugeot 406. The 406 came out in 1995 to replace the 405 saloon, but the estate version carried on until 1997.
The Peugeot 405 had 1.4, 1.6, 1.8 and 2.0L petrol engines and 1.8 and 1.9L diesel engines. The most economical of these engines was the diesel engines, offering up to 44mpg.
