New model
11 September 2009

Peugeot has added a six-speed dual clutch semi-automatic gearbox to its 4007 SUV.

Earlier this week, sister firm Citroen added the same DCS transmission to its C-Crosser. In the Peugeot 4007 DCS, it will be mated to a 156bhp 2.2-litre diesel unit, with combined fuel consumption of 38.7mpg and CO2 emissions 192g/km.

With the dual clutch system the 4007 DCS can be operated as an auto’ or manually with gear shifts delivered via steering wheel mounted paddle shifters.

The new ‘box is available on the seven seat SE and GT versions of the 4007, which will be distinguished from manual models by new rear twin exhausts.

Inside revisions are also being made across the 4007 range including a new LCD screen and changes to the trim around the instruments.

Prices for the auto models will start from £24,545 - the same as Citroen's new C-Crosser fitted with the DCS system. It will be officially launched at the Frankfurt motor show next week.
