Spy Shot: Possible Peugeot 408 in Malaysia? 2012

Credits goes to "Boy96" from lowyat.net! I am just reposting to spread the news! :D Well guess the pressure from the launch of the Proton Preve and Volkswagen Polo Sedan calls for a new model launch from Peugeot 408 as well!

The dashboard looks quite good! This is the Peugeot 408 launched in China. Steering wheel looks simple and elegant, and the dashboard aircond vents reminds me of those from an Audi.

The Peugeot 408 was launched with two engines – a 110hp/147Nm 1.6 litre engine and a 147hp/200Nm 2.0 litre engine in China. Being a C segment Car, The Peugeot 408 is based off the Peugeot 308 chassis platform. The wheelbase is increased to accommodate more legroom. Due to the elongated chassis, the 408 is said to look more proportionate compared to other cars which has simply been converted to a sedan from a hatchback, e.g. Mazda 2.
