Pug fans rejoice! A sole unit of the next-generation Peugeot 308 has been spotted making its rounds in Glenmarie. The C-segment competitor is expected to make its local market debut soon – a launch date of April has been mooted for the award-winning hatch.

As one can see from the photos, 18-inch ‘Saphir’ wheels will be making its way here. While the front isn’t pictured here, an earlier set of photos show that the local-spec Peugeot 308 will feature the mid-range front bumper which features chrome highlights as opposed to the layout found on the base-spec car.

Under the bonnet, the Malaysian-bound Peugeot 308 is said to be offered with a sole powertrain/gearbox combination. A 1.6 litre, turbocharged THP165 engine paired to a six-speed automatic gearbox appears to be the likely candidate.

If that’s enough to get you hyped up, ads for the new Pug are already up and running on our sister classified site, oto.my, with prices seeming to hover about the RM130k mark.
