In line with it’s range enhancement and development strategy, Peugeot will launch the all-new 4008 SUV at the next 2012 Geneva Motor Show.

With this new 4×4 SUV, born of the PSA-Mitsubishi partnership, Peugeot completes its range of vehicles suited to the various expectations of all-terrain customers. 4008 will go on from 2012 second quarter sale, initially in international markets which will represent 70% of its sales.
With its distinctive, stylish appearance and its 4×4 SUV features, the 4008 is a modern response to the needs of all-terrain vehicle customers, fulfills the expectations of the different markets showing strong growth in the compact SUV segment.
The platform of the 4008, taken in part from the 4007, has been reduced in length by shorter front and rear overhangs (-30cm in length). Its long wheelbase and its wide tracks have been retained to guarantee good occupant space.
These characteristics and its exterior dimensions – 4.34m long, 1.80m wide with a height of 1.63m – make the 4008 particularly versatile.
In the four-wheel drive version, the driver can select three transmission modes: “2WD” two-wheel drive, “4WD” four-wheel drive and “LOCK” locking of the four-wheel drive.
In the two four-wheel drive modes – 4WD and LOCK – the distribution of the torque between the front and the rear is managed electronically. In LOCK mode, the four-wheel drive transmission becomes permanent, with even greater distribution of torque to the rear wheels.
There will be two petrol engines: 1.6l (116hp, 152Nm) and 2.0l (150hp, 198Nm), and two diesels: 1.6l HDi FAP (112hp, 270-280Nm) and 1.8l HDi FAP(150hp, 300Nm). The 1.6l petrol engine will be mated with 5-speed manual, the 2.0l with 5-speed manual or CVT transmission. Both of the HDi engines will be available with 6-speed manual transmission.
