Vintage Review: Peugeot 604

604

Taken from R&T’s July 1979 issue, this was a big car- as big as Peugeot could make it.

 

Quite a good car in its day- it has taken Peugeot themselves some four years to introduce a successor (605).

What really signaled the end for the 604 was the 505, which was smaller yet managed to remain comfortable and roomy enough to tick the right boxes. The 604 thus became somewhat of an overkill. Still a very competent car.
