Peugeot 408 Sedan will be produced in Argentina

If you kept track of the earlier news about this model, it is possible for you to believe that this Peugeot 408 is a descendant of the 407. In fact, this model is actually a descendant of the Peugeot 307 sedan. The 407 successor will be named 508.
Theoretically, this model is a Peugeot 308 with a boot, but even at first glance we can see that there is not only this, but a new model with no controversial design. As you can see the design is unified, and we can say that is very good for a Peugeot, especially that “huge mouth” disappeared. From the 207 it is even more discreet and conservative, reminding of the Peugeot 406.
The 408 will have its premiere in South America at the Sao Paulo Motor Show in Brazil at the end of October and it will go on sale in 25 other Latin American countries.
In China, Peugeot 408 is offered with a choice of 1.6-liter gasoline engine which produces 106 hp and a 2.0-liter producing 147 hp. However, we don`t have any information about the car`s powertrain options for the South American model or about how much will it cost. We hope that it will be released on the European market too.
