The Peugeot 4008, a complete crossover
|   Monday, August 13, 2012
With the launch of the Peugeot 4008 the company truly made its foray into the world of luxury SUVs in South Africa. The car is designed keeping in mind the Peugeot designing strategies and the comprehensive interiors with an all terrain upholstery makes the 4008 a vehicle to watch out for.
The Peugeot 4008 has the features to tackle every possible road condition possible and this is achieved due to the advanced suspension settings and the large alloy rims.
Power supply is without doubt crucial and the transmission is tuned to the optimum to shift at the opportune moment for better power boost.

The 4008 is the newest addition to the multipurpose vehicle lineup from Peugeot and this comes right after the 3008. However, the two cars are separate in terms of designing as well as technology usage and the Peugeot provides perfect overall ride ability.

The external modifications on the 4008 are reduced rear and front hangings, increase in the ride height, dynamic exterior designing and composed proportions with the perfect power to weight ratio. The front grille, side shafts and the rear lines unmistakably make the 4008 a Peugeot.

The feline shaped head lamps, the bulky front grille, the LED daytime running lights and the styling cues are all typical Peugeot and the interior is also typically Peugeot. At the first look the interior feels rich and the parts do not feel cheap. The interior has rich leather finish with delicate touches and the metallic parts feel stout yet elegant.

The 4008 has a driver friendly interface and this allows constant interaction between the human and the machine. Drive assistance measures are top notch and the vehicle is as focused on styling as on performance.

The instrument dials display almost everything about the vehicle and is user friendly and easy to decipher. The car features an advanced cruise control system with enhanced steering control with embedded traction control and brake assist technology to help the driver at all possible conditions.

Bluetooth, WI-Fi and USB connectivity is also present as standard on the 4008 and the advanced audio device in the car shuts out the noise level – both from outside environment and the engine.

The audio cancellation device sends out electromagnetic signals every time the noise level in the cabin exceeds permissible levels and this reduces the amount of unnecessary noise in the cabin.

Vibration levels have also been decreased and the all wheel drive technology is versatile and the car has a variety of power modes for a better driving experience. The car is powered by a 2.0 L petrol engine producing 110 KW @ 6,000 RPM, peak torque marked at 197 Nm @ 4,200 RPM.

The 4008 has a third driving mode which locks the wheel and ensures traction when the driver is on the verge of losing control over the vehicle. At low speeds almost 50 percent of the available torque is transferred to the rear wheels and in extreme conditions this is further increased to 82%.
