We brought you the Citroën version earlier, and aside from the new face, this ride's essentially identical. Say hello to the Peugeot 4007, which will make its debut in Geneva with its sibling, the Citroën C-Crosser. Like we said, the two are interchangeable, so that means each gets everything their source vehicle, the Mitsubishi Outlander, offers. Like the Citroën, the new Pug is powered by a 2.2L HDi diesel putting forth 160 hp (156 hp EEC).

Unlike the Citroen, the Peugeot is saddled with a face only a mother could love. The giant mouthlike grille with its pronounced vertical elements looks like it'd be more appropriate on a plankton-slurping baleen whale than an SUV. Also, note the added grillework behind the little hood-mounted lion badge. Suffice to say that we're generally unmoved by the styling up front. You can check it (and the rest of the car) out in detail via the attached gallery.

An interesting aside on the name: The "00" names are reserved for Peugeot vehicles that are different and/or original, and outside the standard model range. The only other Peugeot that falls into this category is the nifty, sliding-doored 1007 city car.

      So now there are three badge-engineered Mitsubishi Outlander clones that no one will want.... And when are they comming to the USA.... When will they learn..

      That is ugly, they could have changed more of the sheetmetal to make it more distinctive

      Gads... that front end! Reminds me of dental work gone horribly wrong.

      Actually, I'd heard the 1007 was going to simply be called the 007 to keep more in line with their traditional numbering scheme, but possible legal issues with those holding rights to James Bond trademarks made them decide to name it differently.

      Goodlooking from the 3/4 rear.
      From the front, a warthog with a chrome lion stuck in its nostrils like a bone on a pygmy headhunter.
      I like Peugeots and Citroens, but these got ugly in their unique ways, to cover the Mitsu ugly.
      Definitely not worth importing.
      I think the French cars missed their day here, since the Koreans (and soon the Chinese) can cover their strong area, small cars, so well. Maybe a shot if their upper range cars are spectacular, but there is hardly room for Alfa, a 10 times better name in the U.S. I would rather see a couple of SEATS or Skodas at the lower end, with VW badges.

      Maybe it's just me. I'm not offended by the front end. At least it is unique and I think it would sell in the US.

      Nice! the huge grill gives it character.

      The Aztek has found a mate.

      It is no Aztek, but they could have done a bit better on the front end. All I want is the small TDi engine and 6 speed to make their way to the US. When will we learn? Stupid US car makers.
