A Peugeot coupé SUV does its laps during test drives. A completely new model here is still heavily dressed in camouflage foil, the name has not yet been decided, but Peugeot 4008 would make sense.. A new coupe SUV from Peugeot has been spotted testing, and will likely be called the 4008. Read on for everything you need to know.
- New Peugeot SUV spotted
- Coupe version of the 3008
- Could be called 4008
- New sporty profile
- Plug-in hybrid probably
- Electric version possible
- Start of sales 2023
The upcoming Peugeot 4008 has been spotted during test drives. This new SUV coupe will be an alternative to vehicles like the Kia Sportage and Renault Arkana.
It will share the same underbody as the Peugeot 308, meaning it will be compatible with both conventional engines and plug-in hybrid options, and possibly electric powertrains.
The new Peugeot 4008 bridges the gap between the 308 hatchbacks and the larger Peugeot 3008 SUV. The design seems to be based on these two vehicles. The entire car is heavily camouflaged at this point, but you can still make out the sleek headlights and ‘fang’ style daytime running lights, similar to other vehicles in the Peugeot range.
The bonnet appears to be lower than the 3008. Combine this with the coupe’s sloping roofline and you get a vehicle with a much sportier profile than a traditional SUV.
The rear end is covered fairly well, only part of the LED taillights can be seen. But it’s almost certain that Peugeot’s ‘lion’s claw’ lights will also be seen on this new model.
Peugeot 4008: interior and infotainment
No pictures have surfaced of the new Peugeot 4008’s interior yet, but one can assume that it will be very similar to the new Peugeot 308 inside.
That means a modern design with the typical Peugeot small steering wheel, above which is the i-Cockpit digital driver display.
The Peugeot 4008 will be based on the 308 hatchback, which means that they will most likely share the engines of this vehicle as well.
This will give you the choice between a 1.2-liter petrol engine, a 1.5-liter diesel, and a plug-in hybrid. The petrol and diesel engines both produce 130 hp, while the plug-in hybrid is available with either 180 or 225 hp.
At a later date, there could also be an all-electric version, as is the case with the 308.
The name of the new member of the Peugeot family has not yet been officially determined. As the base is that of Peugeot 308 but it is a coupe version of SUV called 3008, Peugeot 4008 would be a very likely option.
This would put the crossover between the 3008 and the 5008 and fill this gap in Peugeot’s SUV segment.
Peugeot 4008 Prices and the start of sales
The Peugeot 4008 is expected to be launched in late 2022, with a European launch planned for early 2023.
Pricing hasn’t been announced yet, but it’s likely to be between the 308 and 3008. That means you’ll have to pay around €31,000 for an entry-level Peugeot 4008.
