This year is also the 40 th anniversary of the Peugeot 604. I know it was not commercial success but all the period reviews painted a picture of a car of exceptional refinement and comfort. Car (UK) went so far as to suggest it was better than the S-class and at least the equal of the Jaguar XJ saloon. Motor Trend praised it for a re-ordering of priorities and Autocar hailed it as a "professional" car in that all that was there had been carefully considered. If the car had a problem it was of Peugeot´s own making. They didn´t build them as well as they should; they didn´t fit 4 cylinder engines or lower volume V6s and they launched the similarly sized 505 in 1979 which stole the 604´s market to a large extent. Mercedes, Opel, Ford, BMW and Renualt all sold their large cars with a broad range of engines. Peugeot could have used all the engines in the 504 range since the 604 shared the same frontal architecture.
