After the French manufacturer announced a few months ago that the 4008 will be officially unveiled at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show, Peugeot finally decided to put some light into the situation and said that the crossover will be presented to the public at the next year Geneva Auto Show.
With the same body that makes us think at the Mitsubishi ASX, the 4008 is rumored to have the Open & Go system, touch-screen navigation, glass panoramic roof and some new 18 inch alloy wheels, but the most interesting fact is that this is more appealing compared to the 3008 or the 5008 so the French may be on to something.
No official details about the new 4008’s powertrains have emerged yet but the crossover should be powered by either the French 1.6 liter HDi diesel, mated to a five-speed manual transmission, or the Japanese 2.0 petrol, both of them being most likely fitted with the stop / start system.
Even if the new 4008 will be available in 2WD, 4WD or Lock, most customers will definitely chose the front-wheel drive.
The Peugeot 4008 will be officially presented at the 2012 Geneva Auto Show and the crossover is expected to go on sale worldwide from the second quarter of next year.
