Neil McDonald road and reviews the Peugeot 4007

A sensible Mitsubishi Outlander in stylish Peugeot bodywork like a good idea. is precisely why the French company has its latest, the 4007.

Despite of resisting the SUV push – Peugeot once said he the 4007 was too much of a departure for – the company has been to accept the sales growth of soft-roaders. Peugeot is now playing aiming to recover some of the lost to the Japanese, Koreans and European contenders like the Renault Koleos.

Peugeot may have had to be dragged the off-roader segment but since its the company has sold more 25,000 4007s worldwide. the 4007 is still a curious experiment. It uses the Mitsubishi body, all-wheel drive and interior as well as Peugeot’s own 2.2-litre turbodiesel engine the bonnet.

Peugeot has redesigned the of the car to give it not only a Pug family but a beefier off-road presence. It threw in a bit more chrome at the SV but the rear-end and interior are still identified as the Outlander.

Models and

In Australia there are two 4007 a starter ST and more luxuriously SV. Prices open at $45,490 for the manual ST, topping out at $54,190 for the SV with a six-speed dual gearbox.

Fit-out and equipment

With a option the 4007 is definitely at families with a versatile and load carrying arrangement. The SV the third row pew, which into the floor when not as standard. The second-row sliding also split 40/60 the entire row can be flipped and folded automatically in the SV.

Like the Outlander, the tailgate is a split affair. The section can fold down to be as a picnic table or seat and can up to 200kg, equivalent to two adults and a platter. The SV gets all the fruit of a range topper.

There are six airbags, electronic control, cruise control, park sensors, climate air-conditioning, 18 wheels, rear glass, chrome door kick plates and window Xenon headlights, leather plus electric and heated seats, Isofix child mounting points.

Anyone out of an Outlander will feel at home in the 4007. It drives and like the Mitsubishi, and the only difference is the silky six-speed DSG and energetic 2.2-litre turbodiesel in of the 2.4-litre or V6 Mitsubishi engines.

all Peugeot diesels, this one is on urge and reasonably frugal. I a respectable 8.5 litres/100km in mostly driving. But it is so torquey at low speeds it tug at the steering wheel in front-wheel mode until speed up.

That’s really no surprise 300Nm of torque is readily from just 1500 propelling the car like a slingshot. The DSG is once underway but can be a little from the traffic lights.

The heartbeat is well concealed the cabin. Only under acceleration am I aware that four is an oiler. At cruising the diesel is almost silent.

The comes from the Mitsubishi car and still feels too soft and for me compared to a VW Tiguan or Nissan For most conditions the ride is but push through the corners and the feels less precise, the weight of the diesel over the end making its presence felt.

Inside, the SV gets leather on the and seats but still has a little too Mitsubishi seeping through. the Outlander, the front seats are and supportive but could do with vertical adjustment. Even at the setting, they are still set too Shorter folk will the driving position though.

The row is a child-friendly zone only.

a valiant attempt, Peugeot has not given the interior enough of a French look or feel. the rear doors and you’ll see I mean. They feel and cheap.

The lack of a reach-adjustable steering has also been inherited the Outlander.

So the 4007 gives a start in the soft-roader race but it has built a marginally better Diehard Peugeot fans love it but the superb diesel hide the fact that is really just a more-expensive

The bottom line

French with an identity crisis.
