Brought to you by the PSA brotherhood, with a bit of help from Mitsubishi, here’s Peugeot’s version of the Citroen Aircross, called the 4008.

The 4008 is apparently for those who don’t like the look of the Aircross. That said, the 4008 is not exactly conservative. It has Peugeot’s feline touches all over it. Next to its Japanese and Korean rival, it actually looks great.

Some of its cool features include glass panoramic roof, Open & Go system, 18″ alloy wheels, a touch screen navigation system, and reversing camera.

Like its brother, this compact SUV comes with a four-wheel-drive system with three transmission modes: “2WD” two-wheel drive, “4WD” four-wheel drive and “LOCK” locking of the four-wheel drive. In the two four-wheel drive modes – 4WD and LOCK – the distribution of the torque between the front and the rear is managed electronically.

You can have the car with four engines, two petrols and two diesels:

  • Petrol
    • 1.6l 85 kW (116hp) / 152 Nm – 5-speed manual
    • 2.0l 113 kW (150hp) / 198 Nm – 5-speed manual or CVT
  • HDi Diesel
    • 1.6l HDi FAP 82 kW (112hp) / 270 – 280 Nm with overboost – 6-speed manual
    • 1.8l HDi FAP 110 kW (150hp) / 300 Nm – 6-speed manual

The 4008 will go on sale initially in international markets from 2012 second quarter.
