Peugeot Malaysia to preview new 408 at 'Sinar Raya' promotions

KUALA LUMPUR: Peugeot Malaysia is previewing the new 408 at its “Sinar Raya Open House Weekend” on April 20-21 from 9am till 6pm.

The new 408, expected to launch in May, will arrive in Malaysia as a locally assembled model. It is now transformed into a jacked-up coupe SUV rather than a sedan. It stands out for its dynamic fastback silhouette and offers the latest-generation i-Cockpit, with its compact steering wheel dedicated to driving pleasure and controlled agility.

It has a spacious second row, with 188mm of legroom. The boot is also generously sized, with a volume of 536 litres, which can be increased to 1,611 litres (rear seats folded down).

The new 408 is powered by a 1.6-litre turbocharged PureTech engine, which sends power to the front wheels.

At its European launch in mid-2022, the range of engines powering the 408 includes two rechargeable hybrid versions with 180 and 225bhp, and a 130bhp petrol version. All three are paired with an 8-speed EAT8 automatic gearbox. A pure electric 408 would follow. Which version (s) would go on sale in Malaysia remains to be seen.
