French automaker Peugeot has finally revealed its all-new 2023 Peugeot 408, a cross between an SUV and a Coupe that it says will arrive on the market at the very beginning of 2023.
Slotting between the firm’s 308 hatchback and 508 sedan, the new Peugeot 408 sits solidly on 720mm diameter wheels and the iconic 20-inch rims feature a disruptive geometric design.
At the front, the fang-shaped light signature as well as the three-claw LED lights at the rear perfectly integrates the 408 into the Peugeot family.
Based on a long wheelbase of 2.79m, the new Peugeot 408 has a remarkably spacious second row, with 188mm of legroom.
“Unexpected from every angle, the new PEUGEOT 408 has been designed for lovers of cars and of life, who want to break free from the traditional while seeking responsible pleasure, says Linda Jackson, CEO of the PEUGEOT Brand.
“It embodies PEUGEOT’s exacting technological standards – controlled efficiency and a very high-level digital experience – as well as the intense emotions of instinctive driving pleasure”.
The range of engines powering the PEUGEOT 408 includes two rechargeable hybrid versions and a 130bhp petrol version. An all-electric version will follow a few months later.
Inside, the 408 packs Peugeot’s latest i-Cockpit layout, including a digital display and a 10-inch infotainment touchscreen with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. It also features a panoramic roof, electric tailgate and a ambient lighting.
The driver assistance systems, including Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop and Go function and
Night Vision, are powered by 6 cameras and 9 radars to provide peace of mind and safety.
Peugeot is yet to announce pricing, but 408 will be available in European and in Chinese markets, where it will be called Peugeot 408X.
