2014 Peugeot 408 Sedan

To be unveiled on Sunday

A couple of fully revealing photos with the Peugeot 408 Sedan have emerged, prior to the vehicle’s debut on Sunday at Beijing Motor Show.

Attached images show the China-spec 408 Sedan but most likely the European version will look virtually the same although it’s not known whether it will receive the 408 or 308 Sedan moniker, probably the latter. The obvious changes compared to the hatchback are at the back where the sedan sports a longer overhang together with wider horizontal taillights sending out a bit of a pre-facelift E-Class vibe.

It will ride on the same EMP2 platform as the hatchback and wagon 308s and in China it will be manufactured by the Dongfeng-PSA joint venture. The China-spec variant will be powered by a 1.6-liter naturally-aspirated engine with 117 bhp (82 kW), a larger 1.8-liter with 140 bhp (104 kW), as well as a beefier 1.6-liter turbo rated at 163 bhp (121 kW).

The European version will make use of the same Euro 6-compliant engines as its two cousins and most likely Peugeot will offer the recently introduced economical three-cylinder 1.2-liter PureTech e-THP turbocharged gasoline engine that churns 130 PS (96 kW).

The China-spec model will be unveiled on Sunday at the Beijing Motor Show while its European sibling will likely be shown early October at the Paris Motor Show.
