Peugeot happens to be enjoying a victory lap. This is the ever-popular release of their 3008 model. But how do you make an improvement upon a masterpiece? Specifically, it may have something to do with the coupe-SUV variation of the 4008. This is just the type of premium turn the Peugeot has been needing. The Peugeot 4008 is well-known as the upgrade from what the Mitsubishi-based B-SUV will produce in a model between 2012 and 2017. This has been well-revered since the 2008 model.
So what’s going to be different? the 4008 is coming across as a crossover, thanks to the slim profile. In which there’s also an aerodynamic roofline. Also, there will be a sculpted profile with pronounced wheel arches. Also, the grille is incorporating the Peugeot emblem with LED headlights showing vertical extensions upon the black-painted bumpers and totally faux intakes. This has been evident already from the 308 as well as the 3008 and 5008. The cockpit dashboard shows a 10-inch 3D digital instrument cluster with an additional 10-inch infotainment touchscreen.
The Peugeot 4008 is looking to share common elements with the CMP-based Citroen C4 totally shows in an evolution of the EMP2 platform all while underpinning the Peugeot 308 and the DS 4. The dimensions are to be among the 4,450 millimeters.
Peugeot Is Safe For The Count!
Safety features include seven airbags, ABS technology, electronic brake force distribution and electronic stability, daytime running lamps and rearview mirror with electric anti-glare. There’s no hill start assist with the 4008 base model, a bit of a letdown considering this is a feature in most new SUVs including the Mitsubishi ASX. The 4008 does the job well enough around town, maneuvering easily through traffic and turning in a tight 10.6-meter circle, making it a capable parker and nimble around narrow city corners.
