peugeot 208

The order books have opened for the Peugeot 208, which will be launched in Malaysia next month. The company made the announcement on its Facebook page recently.

There’s no specific info about the car, but sales flyers give us a hint of what to expect. Apparently, the hatch – which was spotted in both three- and five-door forms undergoing type approval at JPJ Putrajaya recently – will come in a 120 hp 1.6 VTi normally-aspirated form.

Specs will include an interactive HD touchscreen and an Arkamys-equipped audio system, and for safety kit, ESP and six airbags among other things. Five external body colours are listed – white, black, red, blue and blossom red.
