2024 Peugeot 408 launched in Malaysia – 218 PS/300 Nm 1.6L turbo, three variants; from RM146k OTR

Following its initial preview earlier this month, the 2024 Peugeot 408 has now made its official launch in Malaysia, arriving in three variants – Allure, Premium and GT, priced at RM146,055, RM166,055 and RM196,055 on-the-road without insurance for the respective variants, and this is locally assembled (CKD) at the Stellantis plant in Gurun, Kedah.

All three variants are powered by the manufacturer’s PureTech 1.6 litre turbocharged inline-four cylinder petrol engine, rated to produce 218 PS at 5,750 rpm and 300 Nm of torque at 2,000 rpm. Drive is transmitted to the front wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission.

Built on parent group Stellantis’ EMP2 platform, the fastback 408 measures 4,687 mm long, 1,859 mm wide and 1487 mm tall with a wheelbase of 2,787 mm and ground clearance of 189 mm. Luggage capacity is 536 litres with the rear seats in place, and expands to 1,583 litres with the seats folded in the GT variant, or up to 1,611 litres in the Allure and Premium variants.

Exterior equipment for the 408 includes alloy wheels ranging from 18 inches on 225/55 for the Allure and Premium variants, up to 20 inches with 245/40 for the top GT variant. Wheels are finished in Granite Grey for the Allure, two-tone Granite Black for the Premium and Monolithe Black for the GT. Allure and Premium variants are equipped with a spare tyre, while the GT gets a tyre repair kit.

The Allure and Premium variants get a front grille finished in chrome, while the GT grille is finished in body colour. For lighting, the top GT gets automatic matrix LED headlamps and 3D ‘claw effect’ LED tail lamps, while Allure and Premium variants get full LED headlamps and tail lamps.

Inside, upholstery starts with vinyl for the Allure, then steps up to leather for the Premium variant, while the GT gets Nappa leather. All three get electric adjustment for the driver’s seat, while the top GT variant adds a memory and a massage function. The front passenger in the Allure gets manual adjustment, while those in the Premium and GT variants get electric adjustment.

Instrumentation is the 10-inch i-Cockpit digital display for all three, while the GT gets a 3D quartz version of the i-Cockpit unit. Infotainment for all three is by a 10-inch i-Cockpit HD colour touchscreen unit, with the GT gaining configurable i-Toggle controls.

Audio for the 408 comes courtesy of a six-speaker system for the Allure and Premium variants, while the top GT variant gets a 10-speaker Focal Premium system, and all three get a wireless phone charger. The GT also gets a cabin air cleaning system.

Safety kit on the 408 range is comprised of AEB, ESP with hill start assist, traffic sign recognition, high beam assist and a tyre pressure monitoring system along with rear parking sensors, a rear camera, active bonnet pedestrian impact protection and six airbags.

To these, the Premium variant adds front parking sensors, advanced traffic sign recognition, adaptive cruise control, advanced AEB, front collision warning, blind spot detection, and rear cross traffic alert.

A total of four colours are offered across the three variants of the 2024 Peugeot 408; Obsession Blue, Perla Nera Black, Okenite White and Artense Grey. The Allure variant gets three of the four except Obession Blue while the Premium gets all four exterior colours; the GT gains Obsession Blue in its range of available colours, omitting Artense Grey.

The 2024 Peugeot 408 is covered by a seven-year/200,000 km warranty, of which three years are of manufacturer warranty coverage, followed by four years of extended warranty coverage by Stellantis Malaysia, which has the same scope of coverage as the manufacturer’s warranty.

    • Yeah, Peugeot’s reputation is in tatters in Malaysia, they really need to do something about it instead of launching new models and pray it’ll somehow stick. CKD-ing this means they’re serious about their investment, but I think they need to expand their outreach to change their image here.

        Reminds me of VW in Malaysia where they changed to a new distributor here (VPCM) in 2016, but still end up not doing well and it just got worse.
        I don’t see it will make any difference for Peugeot.
        Only 2 European brands do well in Malaysia (Merc and BMW) due to the brand prestige, buyers are willing to scarify money to make a statement.
        But Peugeot market position is just like Toyota and Honda.

          Bro, if you buy a bmw (not sure about merc since i don’t own one) new, with warranty + 5 years service package.

          Almost everything is covered in that 5 years, if got any issue/problem, just send back.

          The only thing that i need to pay is the tires.
          Other than that, engine oil, filter, coolant, leaking gasket, steering rack, shock absorber, turbo, brake pads, brake rotors, brake fluid – – all is inclusive in the warranty + service package.

          The headache starts only after the warranty ends.
          That’s when the real money drain starts. And those complaints usually who bought the car outside official stores/out of warranty stocks

          P/S my experience owning a bmw f30 328i 2015

            Bro, the issue is there is a better support system in Malaysia for Merc and BMW. It is like a cult following with many workshops competent enough to repair them and abundance of parts available due to the high volume of these cars in Malaysia, just a matter of you got money to pay or not, you already know these cars are bound to break anyway. Thus owners are more willing to pay since workshops and parts are available.

            But not for Peugeot. That is the different.

      You got brain or not?

      Tesla charges you RM10k just to have red colour lah, why never complain? The GT has exclusive colour, sound system, wheels, air purifyer, real leather seats, matrix headlights. If you think Tesla cheaper, then go buy Tesla lah.

    herm.. at 200k Camry would be a better buy, at least it is a higher segment.

    Malaysia supply chain, workshops and mechanic skillset are just not ready for Stellantis products. At least Mercedes and BMW have better setup in Malaysia than Stellantis.

    nice exterior but seems like interior design seems a bit nor ergonomic. Center console seems to eat to the drivers leg area and steering positioning seems a bit off center relative to the driver (which i felt when driving the 2008) as well.

    Also feeling that the dashboard (meter console) is sitting a bit too high like it was designed for a tall european instead. (but hey blame ourselves for being short LOL).

    one thing im impressed is the boot capacity which is somewhat close to the CX5.
