Two days ago, we told you that order books for the Peugeot 208 has opened, meaning you can put your name down for the B-segment supermini, which will be officially launched in Malaysia next month by Nasim.

That post included info from a sales flyer, giving us a hint of what to expect in terms of spec. Apparently, the hatch – which was spotted in both three- and five-door forms undergoing type approval at JPJ Putrajaya recently – will come with a 120 hp/160 Nm 1.6 VTi normally-aspirated engine.

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 body colours are on the palette – Bianca White, Vera Black, Rouge Red, Virtual Blue and Blossom Red. The latter is a pinkish hue that should find favour with the ladies.

Here’s a gallery of pics of the Malaysian-spec Peugeot 208 (could be an internal preview, spot the Fiesta!) lifted from an ad on oto.my. Ads on our sister site mention RM90k and RM100k, so we might be looking at that price range, with a fully-stuffed three-door (glass roof, 17-inch alloys, chrome mirror caps) as the range topper.
