The new Peugeot 4008 is based on the 4007 platform and comes with a choice of four engines
30 September 2011

Peugeot has unveiled the Peugeot 4008, an SUV which completes its range of vehicles “suited to the various expectations of all-terrain customers,” according to the firm.

A total of four engines are available – a 1.6-litre petrol with 114bhp, a 2.0-litre 148bhp petrol and two diesels (1.6 and 1.8-litre) with 110bhp and 148bhp respectively. For European markets, however, only the diesels are offered, both of which are mated to a six-speed manual gearbox as standard.

Although Peugeot has not confirmed the SUV’s arrival to Britain, the 4008 will only be offered in 4x4 guise in Europe – a system with three selectable driving modes, including two-wheel drive, four-wheel drive and ‘Lock’.

Based on the 4007 platform, the Peugeot 4008 features 300mm shorter front and rear overhangs, while keeping its predecessor’s long wheelbase and wide tracks to maximise cabin space.

External features of the Peugeot 4008 include 18-inch alloys, a vertical grille, flared wheel arches, sill protectors and LED daylight running lamps that “complement the headlamps”.

Inside, the new SUV’s cabin gets a glass panoramic roof, a touch-screen navigation system and reversing camera.

Pricing for the Peugeot 4008 has not been announced.
