Peugeot 408 Debuts in Malaysia
The car will be available in two configurations - 408 Turbo and 2.0, with the former powered by a 1.6-liter twin-scroll turbo rated at 163 hp and 240 Nm from 1,400 rpm. This gets you from 0 to 100 km/h in just 8.3 seconds and on to the 215 km/h top speed.
The Peugeot 408 2.0 is the cheaper of the two, and comes with a less refined naturally aspirated engine hat only produces 145 hp at 6,000 rpm and 200 Nm of torque at 4,000 rpm, and comes mated to an eight-speed automatic. The car takes a leisurely 12,5 seconds to reach 100 km/h.
