One of the first vehicles to be produced as part of a new cooperation between France's PSA and Mitsubishi broke cover this week (with a little help from Photoshop), with fresh photos appearing of a small, French SUV on the recently redesigned World Car Fans. Based on the new Mitsubishi Outlander, the Peugeot 4007 is a small four-by created to satisfy Europe's broadening demand for such vehicles. Word is PSA made a big investment in the struggling Mitsubishi, which will likely provide the gas engine choices for the 4007, while PSA will contribute one of its proven diesels. Americans pining away for French namebadges won't likely get a Peugeot to swoon over anytime soon — the company has no plans to re-launch the brand in the US.
