Peugeot has just launched its first SUV – the 4008 – in South Africa. Sitting above the 3008 in the local line-up, this new French SUV benefits from the PSA/Mitsubishi partnership and is built on the same platform as the Mitsubishi ASX and Citroen C4 Aircross.
Peugeot’s 4008 SUV will arrive on the local market by October 2012. Based on the Mitsubishi ASX, this distinctively styled model will be offered with a choice of 4×2 and 4×4 drivetrains coupled with a 2,0-litre petrol engine developing 113 kW and 197 N.m of torque. Make sure you get the June 2012 issue of CAR magazine to read a driving impression of the Peugeot 4008.
With its upcoming 4008 Peugeot finally enters the fiercely competitive South African SUV/crossover market
