The Peugeot 4007 comes with a single-CD compatible with MP3 file formats and radio, or a radio/MP3 player with 6 CD autochanger.

Infotainment

The Peugeot 4007 comes with a single-CD compatible with MP3 file formats and radio, or a radio/MP3 player with 6 CD autochanger. In all cases, six speakers (four 16cm speakers and two tweeters) are powered by the radio's 140 W (35 W RMS) output.

Our Peugeot 4007 test car was fitted with the Colour Satellite Navigation with touch screen operation, radio/ CD player, MP3 music storage and rear view camera a £1690 option. It comprises of a 7 inch touch screen. The integral 30GB hard disc contains European cartography (NAVTEQ); leaving 10GB of space free to store around 2,000 tracks in the ATRAC3 plus compression format (128k). Controlled by a 400MHz, 720MIPS RENESAS NAVICORE processor, the satellite navigation system also features audio functions with a CD, a 3 waveband radio (FM/LW/MW) and a 4x35W amplifier.

The navigation option includes rear parking assistance which comprises of a reversing camera: located under the registration plate, which sends a colour image to the satellite navigation screen. Thanks to visual marks overlaid on the image of the rear bumper and the car's general direction, the driver can manoeuvre the vehicle in complete safety.

Obstacle detection sensors: 4 sensors incorporated in the lower rear panel detect obstacles within one metre of the car. They alert the driver to the presence of nearby objects and indicate their distance by means of an acoustic signal (intermittent then continuous when the obstacle is less than around 20cm away) and by means of a visual symbol on the information panel of the multifunction display (flashing then fixed at a distance of 20cm or less from the obstacle). This function can be de-activated by means of a pushbutton on the fascia panel.

On the security front the Peugeot 4007 is well protected against unwanted intrusion, and features a rolling-code transponder immobiliser, visible VIN, a lockable glovebox, automatic door locking when driving over 6mph, locking wheel nuts, deadlocks, a high frequency plip key and an ultrasonic alarm (Thatcham Cat. 1 approved) system.

Build Quality

The Peugeot 4007 is well screwed together, if not a little utilitarian. There are better finished SUVs within this price range such as the Honda CR-V.

Value For Money

The Peugeot 4007 is not a budget SUV and looks expensive when compared to the Nissan Pathfinder and Volvo XC90 which are not that much more expensive. All Peugeot 4007s first registered in the UK and purchased from a UK Peugeot Dealer benefit from a Peugeot Two-Year unlimited mileage manufacturers warranty and a free optional One-Year of warranty provided by the Peugeot Dealer Network in the UK.

Conclusion

Overall we liked the Peugeot 4007 but feel there are better SUVs out there we prefer the Honda CRV as an overall package, although admittedly it lacks the four wheel drive selection of the Peugeot and the seven seats. If you need the seven seats your choice is limited to the likes of the 4007 and its sister cars such as the Mitsubishi Outlander, Citroen C-Crosser and the Chevrolet Captiva.
