Paris, France French car marques Peugeot and Citroën have unveiled their new SUV models, hoping to capitalise on the world-wide fascination for the AWD genre. Developed as part of the cooperation agreement between Mitsubishi Motors Corporation (MMC) and PSA Peugeot Citroën, the new SUVs will be marketed by the Peugeot and Citroën brands from July 2007, powered exclusively with HDi diesel engines.

The PSA Peugeot Citroën alliance says the sales target of 30,000 units a year will enable the Group to become a major player in a segment with high growth prospects in Europe.

The SUV segment was a niche market in Europe in the early 90s, but since then sales have risen significantly and continuously. Four-wheel drive vehicles now account for 6% of the passenger vehicle market in Europe, with sales of more than 1 million units in 2005, making them a segment of great interest to car makers.

The French and Japanese groups decided in 2005 to join forces and work on an SUV-type 4WD vehicle platform already under development at Mitsubishi. The agreement concerned adapting this platform for the Peugeot and Citroën makes, and was concluded on a win-win basis which was clearly advantageous for both partners.

PSA Peugeot Citroën gains access to 4WD technology enabling it to market a new product range in the European SUV market, while Mitsubishi Motors recuperates on its investment through higher sales.

The Vehicles:

The sense of safety and the possibility of travelling off the beaten path that come with a 4WD combined with the driving pleasure of a saloon are what the French car makers hope will entice new customers.

Mitsubishi Motors provides the new platform based on its renowned technical expertise in 4WD vehicles, while PSA Peugeot Citroën took part in developing and adapting its SUVs, as can be seen by the distinctively French styling, and also regarding different running gear. Brakes, steering, suspension, rear axles and tyres have all been reworked and adjusted to ensure the highest levels of comfort and road behaviour, compliant with the requirements of the PSA Peugeot Citroën Group in this area.

Peugeot is entering into the 4×4 SUV (Sports Utility Vehicle) market with a new model that is 4.64 metres long and fitted with one of its accomplished HDi diesel engines, with DPFS (Diesel Particulate Filter System).

Its name 4007 uses the double-zero identity as it represents another new concept in the development of Peugeot’s model range. The ‘4’ represents its size within the Peugeot range and the ‘7’ specifies its generation.

The 4007 is completely true to Peugeot’s marque values, being dynamic, with assured value, distinctively styled and innovative.

Styled at Peugeot’s design centre, based at Vélizy in France, the distinctive and feline design style of the 4007, with its tapered headlights and open front grille, are the first signs that identify it is a Peugeot vehicle, consistent in style with other models in the range. The chrome structure that makes up the large air inlet strengthens the vehicle’s elegance and creates an air of authority.

Framing the air intake in the front bumper is a chrome surround that portrays a feeling of refinement and strength. The aerodynamic design of the roof, with its ribbed detailing creates an impression of strength and style, combined with a more contemporary design style at the rear of the vehicle.

At the back, a brushed aluminium trim sits between the translucent jewel-like lights, emphasising the chrome Peugeot emblem mounted above the rear number plate.

The generously proportioned wheel arches and ground clearance provide the 4007 with a capability and security for its driver and passengers, no matter what the driving conditions.

The interior of 4007 has been designed to extend the marque’s appeal and values in this sector by being functional and stylish with plenty of storage capability.

Always aware of the impact of vehicles on the environment, Peugeot has equipped the 4007 with its latest 2.2-litre diesel engine, featuring its technologically advanced Diesel Particulate Filter System (DPFS) for the best combination of performance, economy and environmental protection.

The 2.2-litre HDi diesel engine features direct common-rail injection and is the result of the partnership with the Ford Motor Group. It develops 115kW (156hp) and 380Nm of torque, and is capable of using a 30% mixture of diesel biofuel, without any modifications.

Producing a driving experience that is both dynamic and pleasurable, this engine boasts impressive fuel economy and emissions performance, among the best in the SUV sector. The engine is combined with a 6-speed manual gearbox to make the best use of the high-torque characteristics of the 2.2-litre HDi diesel engine.

The 4007 is equipped with electronic control management on all four driven wheels. The system has been designed to increase both the driver’s confidence and the vehicle dynamics for on-road driving behaviour.

The steering, suspension, four-wheel-drive system, brakes and tyres have all been developed to achieve maximum efficiency. The 4007 continues Peugeot’s reputation for producing engaging cars with dynamic and safe road characteristics.

With this new SUV model, Peugeot is continuing its strategy of extending the available choice of products in response to the diverse demands of its customers.
