The Mercury Cars Guide : November 14th 2009
20--- Classifieds 62 300 400 • carsguide.com.au Saturday, November 14, 2009 An all-road marriage TECHNOLOGY MARRIAGE: Peugeot's new 4007 SUV. 'Happily, the 4007 delivers one of the most fuel efficient vehicles in its class, with the benefit of low emissions ' PEUGEOT has admirable Re- dex Trial history in Austra- lia and now its off-road catalogue has been ex- panded with the introduction of its first Sport Utility Vehicle in Austra- lia.The 4007 turbo diesel is a team effort between PSA (parent company of Peugeot and Citroen) and Mitsu- bishi, which has contributed its Outlander platform and four-wheel drive system to the mix. The 4007 is on sale now and the French marque is conservatively estimating 100 sales a month, with more available should there be extra demand. While the 4007 shares the Out- lander's 4WD system, it is powered by the French side's 2.2-litre particle- filtered turbo diesel engine (which has links to the Land Rover Free- lander as well). It produces 115kW and 380Nm with a fuel consumption claim of 7 litres per 100km and 191 g/km of CO2 emissions for the man- ual. Peugeot says 250Nm of torque is generated at 1250rpm, rising to 300Nm at 1500rpm, which will be useful if you're testing the 2000kg braked towing capacity. Peugeot is offering two model grades --- along the same lines as the 407STandSV---inbothfiveand seven-seat models, with either a six- speed manual or a double-clutch six- speed ''auto'' - a Getrag transmission and Peugeot's first of its type. The company says it has no plans to introduce other drivetrains to the 4007 range and is planning to use the rally heritage of the brand --- includ- ing the Redex Trials, World Rally Championship and Pikes Peak --- as part of its marketing for the car. The six-speed manual will be of- fered in the base-model ST, which starts at $45,490 for the five-seater or $47,990 for the auto. The auto-only seven-seater, which Peugeot Australia expects to (with the SV equivalent) make up the bulk of its sales, will wear a $49,190 pricetag. The ST has cloth trim, 16-inch alloy wheels, dual front, side and curtain airbags, stability control, cruise con- trol, rear parking sensors and climate control among its standard fare. The SV model is $54,190 but is available only with the six-speed auto, adding leather trim, 18in wheels, rear tinted windows, xenon headlights, power-adjustable (for the driver) and heated front seats. The 4007 sits on a MacPherson strut front and multi-arm rear sus- pension and allocates drive using the on-demand/lockable 4WD system that allows it to be locked 50/50 or run on-demand, which leaves the system with an front-drive bias unless rear- drive is required. Peugeot Australia general manager and director Ken Thomas says the SUV ''brings an affordable European alternative for anyone looking for a luxurious medium-sized four-wheel drive with the latest diesel technol- ogy.'' And getting the new Getrag six- speed automatic gearbox is an excit- ing development. ''We know towing capacity, ride and handling, seating capacity and safety are paramount for today's SUV buyer. ''Happily, 4007 delivers on these fronts and it also delivers one of the most fuel efficient vehicles in its class, with the benefit of low emis- sions,'' he says.
