807 relaunched January 2008 with option of new 2.2-litre twin-turbo HDi 170 engine. New optional six-speed automatic transmission from February 2008. HDi 170 supplements HDi 120 and HDi 136 diesel engines, and will be available exclusively in ‘Executive’ trim. Other improvements for 2008 include new exterior detailing and a new Mistral Black interior trim.
The HDi 170 has maximum torque of 273 lb ft at 1500rpm for the manual gearbox and (significantly) 300 lb ft at 1,750rpm with the 6-speed ‘Porsche Tiptronic System’ automatic gearbox. Engine producesf 148 lb ft at 1,000rpm and 207 lb ft at 1,250rpm so no flat-spot. Makes vehicle much more pleasant to drive.
New 807 engine range now comprises:
2.0-litre 16v HDi 120bhp, 225 lb ft, 6-speed manual gearbox
2.0-litre 16v HDi FAP 136bhp, 240 lb ft, 6-speed manual gearbox
2.2-litre 16v HDi FAP 170bhp, 273 lb ft, 6-speed manual gearbox
2.2-litre 16v HDi FAP 170bhp, 300 lb ft, 6-speed automatic gearbox
2.0-litre 16v petrol 143bhp, 150 lb ft, 5-speed manual gearbox
2.0-litre 16v petrol 143bhp, 150 lb ft, 4-speed automatic gearbox
New Aisin Warner six-speed automatic also improves driveability due to ‘lower’ first gear. The use of a ‘higher’ sixth gear also reduces fuel consumption and keeps noise levels low. Strength of new gearbox permits the engine to develop an even higher maximum torque output of 300 lb ft at 1750rpm. 6-speed auto has two driving modes: one automatic self-adaptive mode for a stress-free drive, which automatically adapts to the driver’s driving style and the other is more active, thanks to the ‘Porsche Tiptronic System’ sequential control.
Entire 807 range in 2008 is distinguished externally by a body colour coded exterior, including bumpers and bodyside mouldings, with chrome inserts and door handles. Inside the interior has been tailored with a new ‘Mistral Black’ trim, bringing more clarity and quality to the overall design and modularity available.
RD4 radio/CD player, with MP3 playback capability is now standard across the range (the MP3 functionality enables audio playback of CD discs encoded with MP3 files via the in dash unit).
Three trim levels – S, SE and Executive. The SE model now features, as standard, a Visibility Pack (automatic headlamps on with time delay security illumination and automatic rain sensing front wipers), leather steering wheel and dark tinted rear side windows. Top-of-the-range ‘Executive’ model has a huge list of standard features and 2008 models also now include a new Mistral Black leather interior trim and front parking aid. Finally, there are also two new metallic paint finishes available, Delft Blue and Moondust Grey.

‘Low emissions per person’ – the new HDi 170 has a CO2 of 191g/km, equivalent when divided by the potential of carrying 8 people to just 24g/km per person
