The new Peugeot 408 Sedan has been spotted in Cameron Highlands and on the North-South Highway near Tapah heading north, presumably on the way up. We thank Denzel Hoong and Wan Mohd Faizal for the snaps – keep ’em coming!

We’re told the vehicle is left-hand drive – not surprising given the model’s Chinese-market disposition. The car is likely here for testing purposes – that’s a Kedah trade plate, and Peugeots are locally-assembled (CKD) in Gurun, Kedah, so could the new 408 be CKD, just like the current car?

It was revealed to us in March that the new 308-based sedan could launch sometime in the second half this year. Under the bonnet should sit a direct-injected 1.6 litre THP engine – China also gets 1.2 litre e-THP and 1.8 litre CVVT mills.
