Ever since owning a Peugeot 404 wagon many years ago I’ve had great respect for the brand. They’re sturdy, functional and comfortable and the Peugeot 4007 certainly seems to continue the tradition.
The new Peugeot 4007 comes in two models with both having equipment levels that put them at the higher end of the current range of SUVs available in Australia.
The base model is the ST and it includes:
- 6 airbags
- Climate control air conditioning
- Electronic parking assistance
- Trip computer
- Automatic rain-sensing front wipers
- Cruise control
- Electronic Stability Programme
- Split tailgate with 200kg load capacity
The top of the range SV includes extras such as:
- 18″ alloy wheels
- Heated front seats
- Xenon headlights with auto-height adjustment and washers
- 3rd row seating
- Electrically operated driver’s seat
- leather trim
A 2.2Litre turbo diesel developing 115kW of power is the only engine offered in the Peugeot 4007 but you do have a choice of a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed auto with the ST. The SV does not have the 6-speed manual option.
Peugeot suggests that the manual version will return an average combined cycle of 7.0L/100km (9.2 city and 5.8 highway) while the auto will return an average combined cycle of 7.3L/100km (9.3 city and 6.1 highway) … figures that are certainly impressive.
It’s certainly a stylish looking vehicle and with those miserly fuel figures there will definitely be some interest in it but even though the Peugeot 4007 is already being advertised prices are yet to be announced according to the Peugeot website.
