The Peugeot 208 is currently making it’s pre-launch promo rounds around Malaysia, with the latest location being the 1 Utama shopping centre in PJ.

The 208 will be there till this Sunday (April 14), but if you want to avoid the jam or don’t live in the Klang Valley, we have some details on the car for you as we managed to get a hold of the official brochure while snapping some photos of both the five-door and three-door hatch on display at Peugeot Glenmarie.

The Peugeot 208 brochure reveals that both the five-door and three-door versions are powered by the same 122 horsepower 1.6 litre VTi engine which makes 160 Nm of torque. There’s no mention of how many gear ratios in the official spec sheet, but we’ve been informed it’s a four-speed Tiptronic unit with Sport mode.


There are disc brakes on all four wheels, and the five-door has 16-inch Helium design wheels with 195/55 tyres while the three-door has 17-inch Oxygen design wheels with wider 205/45 tyres.

In terms of safety features, the 208 is loaded to the brim with ESP stability control as well as six airbags for all variants. Other standard features include digital dual-zone climate control, a touch screen infotainment system, six-speaker sound system with Arkamys 3D audio processing, USB and Bluetooth support, and six-way driver and passenger seat adjustment. The three-door also adds a panoramic sunroof, which is rare for a B-segment car in Malaysia.

All that remains to be unveiled is the price, which we hear is under RM100k for both models. Listings of the Peugeot 208 for sale on show a starting price of RM85,888 for the 5-door, so the 3-door might be in the mid-90k range.
