Peugeot Malaysia’s answer to C-segment saloons like the Hyundai Elantra, Mazda 3 Sedan, Honda Civic, Chevrolet Cruze and Mitsubishi Lancer is the 2017 408. Assembled at Naza Automotive Manufacturing plant in Gurun, Kedah, this model is offered here only in e-THP form, priced at RM139,751.
The 408 e-THP is powered by a 1.6-litre turbocharged THP mill, paired to a six-speed auto gearbox with Quickshift Technology. Power output is rated at 165hp and 240Nm of torque, the latter available from a low 1,400rpm. Peugeot claims its turbocharged C-segmenter can do the century sprint in 8.2 seconds and keep going all the way up to 215km/h, while sipping 6.5-litres of fuel per 100km.
