The 4007 has the benefit of seven seats, with an ‘occasional’, third row that pulls out of the load floor. The other seats in the cabin are solid, supportive and comfortable but those at the very rear are narrow and thinly clad. A further drawback is that they eat into the luggage space, considerably. With all seven seats occupied, there is just 184-litres of space under the parcel shelf. When the third row is not in use the capacity increases to between 441- and 510-litres, depending on the position of the sliding, second row. These, middle seats have the usual, 60:40 split and so there are various configurations of load/seating arrangements, resulting in a maximum load capacity of 1,686-litres if loaded to the roof.
Although there are still hints of Outlander, Peugeot have imbued the business end of the cabin with its own sense of style. The soft-touch dash isn’t cluttered with unnecessary humps and bumps and the only real decoration comes in the form of angular, aluminium-effect surrounds to the air vents, on the door handles and the central tunnel. It comes across as sophisticated rather than sparse.
The test car came with the optional satellite navigation system. It adds £1,600 to the price but includes a 7-inch, full-colour, touch-screen that almost replaces the centre console. The system boasts a 30GB brain, most of which is taken up by the navigation but there is 10GB left for music storage, should you so wish. The audio functions are controlled through the touch-screen, which is also used for the rear-view parking camera. Bluetooth isn’t included in the system but is available as an optional extra.
There are two trim levels: SE and GT. The test car was the latter, which adds leather upholstery, heated seats, a CD autochanger, Xenon headlights, rear parking sensors and dark-tinted windows, to the SE specification. 18-inch alloys replace the 16-inch alloy wheels of the SE but otherwise the features list is the same, comprising cruise control, automatic air-conditioning (which also cools the top glove-box), with climate control and filters, a radio/CD/MP3 player and heated, folding door mirrors. The SE bears a price tag of £22,790 and the GT is £25,490.
