Peugeot is entering into the 4 x 4 SUV (Sport Utility Vehicle) arena with a new model that is 4.64 m long fitted with a HDi – FAP engine. Its name, 4007, is using the double zero which represents a new concept in the development of Peugeot’s classic range. The 4 represents its size within the Peugeot range and the 7 specifies its generation.
It is a result of the cooperation between Mitsubishi Motors Corporation and PSA Peugeot Citroën, this new 4x4 DHi – DPFS will be marketed from July 2007.
The 4007 is loyal to Peugeot’s values, style value, dynamic, aesthetically pleasing and
innovative. Straight from Peugeot’s design centre, the racy and feline front design of the 4007, with its tapered headlights and its open front grill are the first signs that it belongs to the marque. The chrome structure that makes up this large air inlet strengthens the car’s elegance and its natural air of nobility.
Framing the air entry at the bottom of the bumper, the fog lights in a chrome surround, give a suggestion of refinement and strength. The aerodynamic design of the roof gives an elegant profile which is complimented by a contemporary rear. This is enlightened by a piece of brushed aluminium in the original design which emphasises the translucent jewel-like lights whilst showing off the marque’s chrome emblem above the number plate.
The generous size of the wheel arches and the ground clearance contribute to give the 4007 a general impression of controlled power and the promise of a vehicle dedicated to drivers no matter what the driving conditions. The 4007’s interior has also benefited from Peugeot’s specialised designers. It is dynamic and functional and offers lots of storage.
The dashboard material and design as well as the door trim have been reworked to satisfy European customers’ expectations.
