One of the car industry's more curious quirks is that the same peculiar traits seems to grace cars manufactured in any one country.As for the French, their cars often feel like stylish Hollywood mock-ups of actual, sophisticated designs. The looks are there but the cars feel flimsy and frail as if they were made to be used once and discarded like a disposable razor. Not the 4008, because Peugeot actually managed to use the platform of a Mitsubishi ASX SUV, complementing the European styling with the heart and sound construction of a Japanese car. As a matter of fact, 4008s are built in Mitsubishi's Okazaki factory, which also builds the ASX. What that means is that you get the same 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that powers the Mitsubishi. If you don't know what that means, then you have no business buying an SUV in the first place.In contrast to the Peugeot 4007, which made no effort to hide its Mitsubishi Outlander origins, Peugeot designers ensured that the 4008 looks uniquely European and more specifically French.The steering wheel, which is unmistakably Peugeot, also enhances the cabin ambience and is the easiest way to tell you're not in a Mitsubishi.
