    Globally revealed in June last year, the next-gen Peugeot 408 boasts a liftback profile with a midsize car's footprint and an SUV-like seating position. It slots between the 508 sedan and the 308 hatchback in Peugeot’s global lineup.

    Peugeot Thailand currently offers the new 408 in a single PHEV trim, priced at THB 2,790,000 (approximately equal to RM 361,478). It is equipped with a combination of 1.6-litre turbocharged 4-cylinder petrol engine and an electric motor. Combinedly, the system churns out a maximum power of 225 PS and a peak torque of 360 Nm. The power is sent to the wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission.

    In terms of design, the latest French model features the hottest design trend with a sleek fastback silhouette, a bolder face, and a squared-off rear styling. Key inclusions are body-coloured grille flanked by ultra-slim LED headlights, a three-claw LED daytime running light signature, and 20-inch alloy wheels.
