Peugeot 4007 & Citroen C-Crosser

I’m going to present you PSA SUV’s that are available on market. As we all know (if you don’t know, I’m going to tell you) SUV is the abbreviation for Sport Utility Vehicle. In present, SUV’s have more than 6% from hole sales in Europe and over 1 million pieces sold last year.

The French group, PSA closed in 2005 a partnership with Mitsubishi Motors Corporation for creating new models based on Outlander technical platform, models to be sold under Peugeot and Citroen license.

Now, we’ve finally met the results: Peugeot 4007 and Citroen C-Crosser, and like any other twins, these 2 cars are identical in so many points of view, but also so different. For example, the cars were built, technically speaking on same principles: both will offer a secure travel truth hilly roads, also a comfortable travel and the pleasure to drive them on the highway; both are built after some special standards desired by the French group, especially when I speak about the rolling train- PSA was seriously involved in adjustments for brakes, direction, suspensions, back-axle and tyres to be as they want and conform to customers needs; both have the same engine– dimensions: 4.61/1.81/1.73 m- and both will compete for the title of the most unpolluted SUV- thanks to their DFPS filter, but also to the 2.2 litre Hid propeller, which can go until 30% biodiesel.

As we can see, the effort to separate them can be observed only in interior and exterior design. So, Peugeot 4007 will be the one trying to seduce calculated clients that put a big price on fair offers (speaking about the price/quality report), contextually speaking about a car with style, dynamic character and innovative. Nothing can make you change your opinion about this car, not even that 4 numbers: 4 is the size of the car in Peugeot range, 7- the generation, and those to “0” the presence of a new concept in mark’s portfolio.

On the other side, Citroen C-Crosser will try to find its masters putting in lights the traditional values of a SUV- interior space, all-train capacity, veracity, elegant vehicle with a haute- contour design, concordantly with the other models marked by Chevron.

As you can see in the photos, the effort for making these cars was finalized with a non-spectacular result: both cars looks the same in any angle, except the front, where the huge “mouth” that contour the grating of Peugeot 4007 is different than C-Cross’s mask that contour Citroen emblem. The rest of the body is very much the same as the new Mitsubishi Outlander, especially in profile.

Not even the back improves the story where the stops and other forms were taken (with some small changes) by these 2 French models. But, Peugeot 4007 and Citroen C-Crosser will have an easy mission to convince people to buy them, because as I already said, both cars use a performed, economic and ecologic diesel engine, developed by PSA together with Ford. Having a capacity of 2.2 litres, HDi is capable to produce 156 hp and 380 Nm, both cases can offer the maximum moment to all 4 wheels.

If Peugeot said only that the torques distribution will be controlled by artificially intelligence, Citroen told that C-Cross can be set on 2WD, 4WD or 4WD Lock from a button put on the back of the gearshift. These two beautiful cars will be commercialised in summer of 2007, but until then you can see them at Geneva Auto Show. PSA is expecting at over 30,000 unit sales in a year, from both cars. Positive expectations, don’t you think?
