2012 Peugeot 4008 news, pictures, specifications, and information

Peugeot 4008, the 4x4 SUV that combines strength and style

In line wîth Peugeot's range enhancement and development strategy, the 4008 will be launched initially in the international market which will represent 70% of its sales. With its distinctive, stylish appearance and its 4x4 SÚV features, the 4008 is a modern response to the needs of all-terrain vehicle customers, in a very prominent market §egmènt.

International launchThe world market of all-terrain SÚVs has been growing strongly since 2005. In Russia, all-terrain vehicles have long been predominant and currently account for 20% of the market, the majority being vehicles in the compact SÚV §egmènt. However, in China and Western Europe the market share of the SÚVs has reached 10%, and covers a variety of expectations. In Europe, this market share of the SÚVs in §egmènts C and D is increasing to the detriment of the SÚVs of the E §egmènt. In China, it is the attraction of the vehicle's status that is sought after. In Europe, it fulfils the desire for distinctive multipurpose vehicles, compact and wîth an environmental impact comparable to that of a conventional saloon. Therefore, the Peugeot 4008 is an ideal response to the changes in these markets, it is a competitive vehicle serving the marque's ambition in the international market. Presented as a world première at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, Peugeot 4008 will go on sale initially in international markets from 2012 second quarter.

A complete range of all-terrain vehicles

With this new 4x4 SÚV, Peugeot completes its range of vehicles suited to the various expectations of all-terrain customers. With its strong personality, for the international destinations, the Peugeot 4008 is aimed both at customers who already own an all-terrain vehicle and at those lòòking for an alternative to Saloons or MPVs, a vehicle synonymous wîth leisure. In Europe, it is targeted more specifically at customers who appreciate a strong and dynamic ability, wîth dimensions suited to multi-purpose use and efficient fuel economy. In addition to the 4007, but also the 3008 and its HYbrid4 version, the Peugeot 4008 fulfils the expectations of the different markets showing strong growth in the compact SÚV §egmènt.

A distinctive style

Born of the PSA - Mitsubishi partnership, the Peugeot 4008 naturally has a strong Peugeot identity. The new stylistic codes of the marque are judiciously adapted, such as the floating grille and the feline design of the lamp units wîth visual signature: at the front, a line of LED daylight running lamps that complement the headlamps and three red claws sculpted rear lamps. The off-road character has been emphasised by adopting a vertical design of grille, inclusion of body sill protectors and prominent wheel arch protection trims, to accommodate large wheels enhanced by the sophisticated design of the wheel rims. The almost-horizontal bonnet grooves and the style line - which extends to the rear wing where it descends again crossing the lamp - are a distinctive feature and appear to hollow out along the body side, accentuating the strong and dynamic aspect of the Peugeot 4008.

Excellence and range enhancement

The work carried out by the design style team, down to the smallest detail, gives the Peugeot 4008 a high class elegance in line wîth its positioning. The exterior is, among other things, set off wîth chromed components and the interior ambiance is enhanced by the choice of materials, like the soft texture fascia, to the instrument panel visor and the lacquered black decoration of the centre console. A glass panoramic roof provides extensive light for the occupants in the passenger compartment and is supplemented wîth side LEDs for night/dark light illumination for reading. With its particular style, strong and distinctive, the Peugeot 4008 is firmly rooted in the world of the compact SÚV. Its features and its equipment - like the Open & Go system, 18' alloy wheels, a touch screen navigation system, and reversing camera - are a result of the Brand's modernity and upmarket vision of all-terrain vehicles.

Multipurpose, comfortable SÚV

The platform of the Peugeot 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 in the front and rear. These characteristics and its exterior dimensions - 4.34m long, 1.80m wide wîth a height of 1.63m - make the Peugeot 4008 particularly versatile. Its compactness - a promise of true manoeuvrability - and its occupant space make it a vehicle suitable for everyday use, including in town, and for leisure journeys or holidays.

4x4 transmission wîth electronic management

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, wîth even greater distribution of torque to the rear wheels.

This type of transmission will represent more than 80% of sales of the 4008. Peugeot's new 4x4 SÚV will in fact only be offered in a 4x4 version in certain countries, including Europe.

A range of performant engines adapted to the market

There will be four engines:
- Petrol 1.6l 85 kW (116hp) / 152 Nm - 5-speed manual
- 2.0l 113 kW (150hp) / 198 Nm - 5-speed manual or CVT

- HDi Diesel 1.6l HDi FAP 82 kW (112hp) / 270 - 280 Nm wîth overboost - 6-speed manual
- 1.8l HDi FAP 110 kW (150hp) / 300 Nm - 6-speed manual

For Europe, the Peugeot 4008 will be offered wîth the two HDi diesel engines. In the other countries, it will be marketed wîth the most appropriate power train(s).

With the 1.6l petrol and HDi diesel engines, the environmental performance of the Peugeot 4008 is among the best in the §egmènt. So the Peugeot 4008 merits its status as a modern SÚV and its place in the heart of our cities, just as much as a conventional Saloon.
