4007 is an SUV with very strong cre­den­tials

Shepparton News - Shepparton Car Weekly - - FRONT PAGE -

Peu­geot has launched its first ever four-wheel drive Sport Util­ity Ve­hi­cle 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 group and Mit­subishi Motors Cor­po­ra­tion.

The re­sult of this part­ner­ship is 4x4 tech­nol­ogy de­vel­oped by MMC and en­ergy-ef­fi­cient diesel en­gine tech­nol­ogy de­vel­oped by 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 380 Nm.

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 2000 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 five seat or seven 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 medi­um­sized 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 and 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.”
