Once you’ve seen the Citroën C4 Aircross, I now invite you to meet his brother, which wears on the grill the emblem of the lion. It’s Peugeot 4008, another compact SUV based on the platform of Mitsubishi ASX. The new French SUV will be officially launched at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2012, being available to be sold beginning with that year.
The model is positioned between 3008 and 4007 so that the latest version gives the impression that he stole a DNA sample from them. Although higher in name, 4008 has a smaller size compared to the Peugeot 4007. For example, the Peugeot 4008 has a length of 4340 mm, with 295 less than Peugeot 4007. In addition, the machine shows that 4008 forms are using a new design language used by Peugeot.
Under the hood you can have one of the four engines available: two petrol and two diesel. In the first case, 1.6 liter petrol engine will be ready to serve you 116 Hp and 152 Nm, while the 2.0 liter version you will deliver 150 hp and 198 Nm. Both will be coupled to a standard gearbox with five-speed manual or a CVT (continuously variable transmission) for the 2.0 liter engine.
If you want a diesel, you’ll be able to choose between an 1.6 liter engine with 112 hp and 270 Nm and a 1.8 liter engine with 150 hp and 300 Nm. This time, both engines will be mated to a six-speed manual gearbox. Power will be distributed at the 4008 Peugeot to the front or all wheels. Traction system will be set according to your needs and will be electronically controlled to suit the road conditions as well.
