Peugeot 4008

The 2012 Peugeot 4008 is an incredible SUV that smartly combines style with strength and it is planned to be initially launched in the international market, thus representing 70% of its sales. The 4008 was designed as a modern response to the particular needs of all-terrain vehicle customers, incorporating a very stylish and distinctive appearance. It is a well known fact that the international market of all-terrain SUVs has continously grown since 2005, with Russia registering 20& of the market covered by SUVs, while in Western Europe and China, the market share of the SUVs has reached 10%. Thus, the 4008 becomes a highly competitive vehicle which serves the marque's ambition in the international market. The Peugeot 4008 was meant to reach those customers who already possess an all-terain vehicle and those who are considering an alternative for MPVs, a good synonymous for leisure. The feline design of the lamp units with visual signature, as well as the floating grille, make up the new stylistic codes of the marque, while its off-road character is enhanced by the prominent wheel arch protection trims and the vertical design of grille. One of the distinctive features is embodied by the almost-horizontal bonnet grooves together with the style line. The chromed components and the interior ambiance, essentially contribute to the high class elegance of the 4008. The brand's modernity is visible in the 18-inch alloy wheels, Open & Go system and a touch screen navigation system. The good occupant space in the front and rear is provided by the long wheelbase and wide tracks which have been retained, making the 4008 particularly versatile. The 4008 will be released in Europe with the two HDi diesel engines, while in the other markets, the most appropriate powertrains will be offered.
