Who says that Europeans, especially the French, are not interested in SUVs? Automaker PSA has partnered with Mitsubishi Motors to develop a pair of new soft roaders, the Peugeot 7007 and Citroen C9.

Details are still sketchy, but both vehicles will be based on the new Mitsubishi Outlander which is due in the U.S. soon. Possible engines include a 170-bhp, 2.4-liter gas engine from Mitsubishi and a 136-bhp 2.0-liter diesel provided by PSA. The French automaker plans to roll out both SUVs sometime in 2007 at a price of between €20,000 and €30,000.
