The Peugeot 4007 SUV is a good looking vehicle; although a lot of the reviews hasten to point out that that the interior trim has more of a practical Japanese slant than a plush European one. Even with that in mind, the two trim levels on offer are fairly lavish, with the standard SE trim level coming in with CD player with MP3 compatibility, climate control, heated exterior mirrors, electrically operated windows for the front and rear and seventeen inch alloy wheels with all season tyres. Moving up to the GT-SE trim will being a few more goodies, with the most outstanding being Xenon headlights, power adjustable and heated genuine hide seating, headlamp washers, chrome kick plates, matching window surrounds, parking sensors and impressive eighteen inch wheels with all season tyres.
When you buy a Peugeot you know that all safety features will be taken care of and the 4007 is no exception, with a full set of air bags to protect driver and passengers coming as standard as well as electronic stability control, in addition to a wide choice of optional safety features..
The Peugeot 4007 finds itself coming late into a pretty tough sector of the market, where they found waiting for them such tried and tested opponents as the Volkswagen Tiguan ,Nissan X-Trail TL, Suzuki Grand Vitara, Ssangyong Actyon , Renault Koleos. Hyundai ix35 SUV , Kia Sportage SUV, Mitsubishi ASX SUV, Suzuki Grand Vitara SUV, Hyundai Tucson SUV, Suzuki Jimny Sierra SUV and the Nissan Dualis SUV.
The 2.2 liter diesel engined 156 horsepower Peugeot 4007's has been reported as averaging 39.2 miles per gallon, with 35 miles per gallon in the city and around 43 miles per gallon on the open road.
Peugeot didn't make life easy for themselves coming late into a very competitive niche with a model that is a barely disguised clone of the Mitsubishi Outlander, and, according to reviews, has failed to truly capture the imagination of the motoring public.
