History [ edit ]

In July 1987, Peugeot unveiled ten versions of the 405 simultaneously for the 1988 model year, with sales on the continent beginning before Christmas, and sales in the United Kingdom beginning in March. [ 1 ] Deliveries began in October 1987 for the saloon, and May 1988 for the estate. No coupГ© was ever offered to the public, unlike the 504 and later 406. as only two examples of the purpose-built 405 Turbo-16 (not to be confused with 405 T16) were made. The 405 was available as a 4-door only.

Four-cylinder petrol engines included 65, 92, 110, 125, and 160#160;hp (48, 69, 82, 93, and 119#160;kW) units. A 1.8-litre diesel engine. with or without a turbo (70 and 90#160;hp (52 and 67#160;kW)) was added to the range during 1988 as was the 5-door estate.

Its launch came a year after the demise of the Talbot marque on passenger cars, with the Alpine (originally a Chrysler Europe product) being the last 405-sized car from Talbot. The slightly smaller 305 was discontinued from the Peugeot range soon after the 405’s launch, with the larger 505 being axed a while later, with Peugeot’s new range-topping model after 1989 being the 605.

The 405 was the last Peugeot vehicle sold in the United States. on sale between 1988 and 1991, including the Mi16 model. [ 2 ]

The 405 was a popular model in Thailand. following the success of the Peugeot 505 after the Government of Thailand cancelled a restriction on CBU car imports in the late 1980s.

By 1989, 500,000 vehicles had been produced, [ citation needed ] and the 1 millionth 405 left the Sochaux factory the next year. [ citation needed ] A minor facelift in 1991 included a change in transmission with the BE1 replaced by the BE3 and updates to the dashboard. steering wheel. and soundproofing .

In 1993, a revised 405, referred to as the Phase 2 model, was introduced featuring a new rear design with new rear lights and boot design, and a revised interior with a new dashboard. The turbocharged. 16v, 4WD 405 T16 (LHD only) was also introduced.

The 405’s replacement, the 406. was introduced in 1995, and the 405 saloon was discontinued in Europe, whilst the estate continued on sale in Europe until 1997. About 2.5 million vehicles were sold worldwide. [ citation needed ]
