The new Peugeot 4007 - now on sale


Peugeot has launched its first ever four-wheel drive Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV) in Australia with the introduction of the diesel-powered 4007.

The 4007 is Peugeot’s response to strong growth in the market for all-terrain vehicles and SUVs – with SUVs occupying approximately 20 per cent of the Australian market.

4007 is a collaborative partnership between the PSA Peugeot Citroën group and Mitsubishi Motors Corporation.

The result of this partnership is 4x4 technology developed by MMC and energy-efficient diesel engine technology developed Peugeot.

The 4007 features an innovative electronically controlled four-wheel drive system, a powerful, latest-generation 2.2-litre HDi diesel engine, combined with a versatile and dynamic package offering high levels of ride comfort both on and off road.

The latest-generation 2.2-litre HDi diesel engine in the Peugeot 4007 develops maximum power of 115 kW and maximum torque of 380Nm.

Its fuel efficiency and environmental credentials are of the highest order, with 7.0 litres/ 100km and 191 grams/ km (CO2) respectively for the manual.

The torque output from the diesel engine sees the 4007 capable of a braked towing capacity of 2,000 kg.

The environmental performance is enhanced by the particle emissions filter, a technology pioneered by Peugeot.

Peugeot’s expertise in terms of suspension contributes to the superior road holding of 4007, while the spacious interior layout allows for a 5-seat or 7-seat* configuration with clever functionality.

Peugeot Automobiles Australia general manager/ director Ken Thomas believes 4007 more than meets the expectations of today’s SUV customers.

“4007 is an SUV with very strong credentials having sold in excess of 25,000 worldwide since launch” he said.

“It brings an affordable European alternative for anyone looking for a luxurious medium-sized four-wheel drive with the latest diesel technology.

“Gaining access to the brand new Getrag 6-speed DSC automatic gearbox is a very exciting development for 4007 and a further example of new technology available today.

“We know towing capacity, ride & handling, seating capacity and safety are paramount for today’s SUV buyer – happily 4007 delivers on these fronts.

“4007 also delivers one of the most fuel efficient vehicles in its class with the benefit of low emissions.

“Peugeot celebrates over 120 years of innovation where the brand has excelled in the toughest of environments. Within this tradition, we are confident 4007 will be a great success in Australia.”
