The main stumbling block about this car is it's price. Since Peugeot are by no means reknowned for 4x4s, you would logically think they'd be doing their level best to attract folk to their wares, but no. Infact, the Gallic firm have also given the 4007 the strangest front end on a car since Ford made it's butt-ugly Scorpio in the mid-nineties. The 4007 shares running gear and the vast majority of it's body panels with the Citroen C-Crosser and the Mitsubishi Outlander, which are funnily enough cheaper to purchase. The car handles very competently, has virtually no body roll for a vehicle this large, and is pleasantly surprisingly nimble. The extra two seat which pop up out of the boot floor are only seriously ment for children due to their small size, but I would personally worry if I had to place my two sons effectively in the rear most extreme point of the car just incase it was hit from behind. That aside - and it's rather unusually styled 'gaping mouth' front end - this is a good road vehicle. Sadly, I didn't get chance to test it's off road capabilities, but as a 'Chelsea Tractor' it's excellent.
