Peugeot 408 facelift for China unveiled
The second generation of Peugeot 408 has been around in China since 2014, and the manufacturer probably thought it was time for a facelift.
The refreshed 408 lineup comes with a number of exterior, interior and technical improvements. Visual novelty includes both bumpers, the hood cover, the radiator grille, and the headlights. The series is also now available in a wider range of colors.
On the inside, the modifications are few and far between. There is a new seat upholstery option (beige imitation leather). The standard and available features include an infotainment system with a 10-inch touchscreen display, a panoramic view camera, a keyless-start-and-go, six airbags, cruise control, and two-zone climate control.
The updated Peugeot 408 is no longer available with the 1.8-liter engine in its base version. There are now only two turbocharged gasoline engines to choose from, a 1.2L with 136 hp (101 kW) and a 1.6L with 167 hp (125 kW).
First vehicles will start rolling into dealerships in China in late August. Prices will be announced closer to the launch date.
