As Dongfeng Peugeot's annual blockbuster model, since its debut in January, 408X has captured attention of many young consumers with its clear and sporty design. According to official sources, new car is also officially out of service on 16th and is expected to appear on list in April.
As for product, it's actually a sister model on same platform as Citroen Versailles C5 X, but 408X has an all-new family style design that looks sportier and younger. The air intake grille is integrated with sharp headlights, and iconic fang-style LED daytime running lights are also equipped on both sides. The overall look is very aggressive, and I believe reason why new car is so popular Readers' attention has an excellent relationship with this design simulation set .
The side shape has a cross-border fastback design that makes whole car look very full and sporty, while black decorative pieces are used to hemming around to enhance cross-border attributes. In addition, dimensions of new car are 4705/1859/1502 mm, and wheelbase is 2787 mm, which is not much different from Versailles C5 X.
The shape of tail is also treated in a cross-border style. The overall design is quite sporty and compact, and a large area of plastic spoiler panels has been added at bottom, which looks full of wildness.
As for interior, Peugeot 408X continues sporty and fashionable style of the Peugeot family. It has a 10.25-inch full-featured LCD instrument cluster, a 10.25-inch center control screen, and 9.7-inch i-Toggles. touch screen.
In terms of power, this new car will also feature a 1.6T turbocharged engine with a maximum output of 176 hp, which is mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission. In addition, new car is also expected to have a plug-in hybrid version.
Can advent of Peugeot 408X bring Dongfeng Peugeot back to life?
More interestingly, in this price range, although there are many brands of cross-border cars, only a French car brand can successfully become popular. The French brand has captured traffic key, which has become popular in domestic market. .
The advent of Versailles C5 X also successfully gave Citroen a boost and proved itself, so this time around, Dongfeng Peugeot introduced 408X, apparently wanting to retrace path to Versailles' popularity again, but judging by current enthusiasm for new cars, there has been no response. as hot as expected, so it will take some time to figure out what sales will be in future.
But there is one thing I have to say about 408X, I personally think that both overall design and tone of product are in line with automotive needs of young consumers today and it is still very attractive!
