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

Styled at Peugeot's design center, 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.

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-liter diesel engine, featuring its technologically advanced Diesel Particulate Filter System (DPFS) for the best combination of performance, economy and environmental protection.
The 2.2-liter HDi diesel engine features direct common-rail injection and is the result of the partnership with the Ford Motor Group. It develops 156 bhp and 280 lb ft 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 behavior.

The steering, suspension, four-wheel-drive system, brakes and tires 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. The 4007 brings together many strong product attributes of the Peugeot marque within a growing sector of the car market.
