Peugeot 4007 Dual Clutch System Automatic

The new Peugeot 4007 combines adventure, automation, environmental efficiency and driving enjoyment in a very harmonious way. The carmaker demonstrates all these by equipping the car with a 2.2-liter HDi FAP 156 BHP engine that sends the power to the wheels through a semi-automatic transmission and dual clutch. This last system consists of automating the gear changes on a manual gearbox and using two clutches to transmit the engine torque. Gear changing is quick and smooth with no interruption in the supply of torque. To be more precise, the Dual Clutch System ensures smooth driving without a clutch pedal while retaining all the dynamism and efficiency of a car equipped with a manual transmission. The semi-automatic gearbox is equipped with six speeds to make best use of the performance from the 2.2-liter HDi FAP 156 BHP engine. The model equipped with this engine and the Dual Clutch System performs very favorable results in terms of energy consumption versus performance and services delivered to confirm that it really is possible to combine dynamism and automation with environmental efficiency. The new Peugeot 4007 incorporates new features of style that enhance the appearance and status of the SUV that belongs to Peugeot. For the interior, the carmaker offers new elegant edging trim that surrounds the instrument panel visor and front door strips, while the air conditioning controls have chrome trim finishes. On the outside, the 4007 DCS automatic models and available in SE and GT trim and are distinguished by twin tailpipes. Both are equipped as standard with seven seats. The carmaker plans to present this new car at the Frankfurt Motor Show that will take place next week. For the ones interested, you should know it is already available for order. The price for the 4007 range starts at EUR23.345 for the model equipped with the DSC automatic and with the SE trim starts from EUR24.545.
