Review Peugeot 405 SR Tahun 1994
The design of the 405 model was developed in collaboration with the famous Italian studio Pininfarina. Peugeot 405 is a front-wheel drive car with a 3-volume body and a fairly spacious interior (wheelbase 2669 mm). Due to the long base with small external dimensions, the 405th stands as a glove on the road. He confidently goes through any turns, precisely following the trajectory outlined by the driver, sensitively reacting to the position of the steering wheel and the accelerator pedal.
Particularly conquer the form of lighting: slightly slanted headlamps and extremely simple and at the same time elegant taillights.
The exterior and interior of the Peugeot 405 do not look very outdated even today. The design of the dashboard and trim still look quite attractive. The steering column is height adjustable, the dashboard is very informative. The seat is quite hard with a full set of mechanical adjustments. Upholstery is usually fabric. However, on some versions there may be servo drives and leather.
The air flow for each passenger can be adjusted individually, and the thoughtful distribution of air from the deflectors in the dashboard provides a fairly good heat exchange in the cabin.
The ergonomics of the internal space fully meets the requirements of those years. That's just such a Peugeot branded part, as the location of the horn button at the end of the turn-switch pleases all drivers.
Visibility is not bad. Power steering (except for the complete set of GL).
