Peugeot 408 sedan launched on the Chinese auto market
Published on August 27, 2014 by Joey Wang
The new Peugeot 408 will be manufactured in China by the Dongfeng-PSA joint venture to compete in the fast-growing market segment of ‘medium sized sedans with premium features’, with cars such as the Honda Crider, the Volkswagen Sagitar, the Hyundai Mistra and upcoming Ford Escort. The new 408 is the second PSA entry into the segment after the equally premium Citroen C4L.
Engines: 117hp 1.6, 140hp 1.8, and a 163hp 1.6 turbo. Size: 4570/1820/1488, wheelbase is 2730.
The old Peugeot 408 will live on in the upcoming Dongfeng Fengshen L60.
