Nasim Sdn Bhd, the official distributors of Peugeot vehicles in Malaysia, has revealed its Chinese New Year campaign for the year. For a limited time only, the new Peugeot 308 THP Active will be available with a RM2,000 discount, while buyers of the 408 Turbo can enjoy savings of up to RM32,888.

The Peugeot 308 THP Active was only recently introduced in Malaysia at a price of RM119,888. The variant offers a revised list of equipment from the original 308 THP. The new variant now features halogen reflector headlamps as standard (instead of LED ones) and lacks front parking sensors.

It also gets slightly smaller 17-inch alloy wheels rather than the original 18-inch rollers, but despite the reduced kit, the 308 THP Active does get a unique front bumper with repositioned LED daytime running lights and holds on to its six airbags and ESP systems as standard.

There are no changes to its powertrain, which leaves the combo of a 150 hp/240 Nm 1.6 litre turbo four-pot and Aisin-sourced six-speed torque converter automatic transmission as is.

As confirmed last week, the 308 THP Active is a whole RM17k cheaper than the original 308 THP. The RM2,000 discount on the variant is limited to the first 50 customers, so if you want one at the discounted price of RM117,888, best hurry along.

The Peugeot 408 Turbo is available with savings of up to RM32,888. The variant features an older powertrain combo than the current 308 THP, but is tuned here to offer slightly more power – the engine’s output is rated at 163 hp and 240 Nm.

The 408 Turbo is equipped with 17-inch alloy wheels, projector headlamps, a six-speaker World In Peugeot audio system, ABS, EBD and EBA, six airbags and ESP as standard.

The 408 Turbo also falls under Peugeot’s Prosperity Drive campaign, offering buyers of selected models the opportunity to get a five-year, free service programme (inclusive of parts and labour costs) on top of Peugeot’s five-year unlimited mileage warranty. Other models that fall under this programme include the Peugeot 508 THP, 5008 MPV, 308 THP and the 2008 SUV.

So, remember – it’s RM2,000 off for the first 50 buyers of the 308 THP Active and RM32,888 off for those keen on a new 408 Turbo this festive season.
