Peugeot 408 Overview
The second-generation Peugeot 408 made its Malaysian debut back in 2016 in the sole e-THP variant. Locally assembled in Naza’s Kulim assembly plant, the Malaysian-spec model is priced from RM 143,888 when new and comes with a 5-year unlimited-mileage warranty.
Based on the 408 nameplate and its 4-door sedan layout, the Peugeot 408 would naturally be the successor to the Peugeot 407, but instead it is a long wheelbase version of the Peugeot 308 hatchback.
They share a similar front end featuring the same ‘fanged’ full-LED headlights and a similar front bumper design barring a few subtle differences. Aimed primarily at emerging markets like China and South America, the C-Segment Peugeot 408 goes up against rivals in the likes of the Toyota Corolla Altis, Mazda 3 and the segment leader the Honda Civic.
