Fastback Design Blended with SUV Codes

In the design of the new 408, the first striking element is the brand-specific cat stance, referring to brand belonging. Along with its sharp design lines, the front design proudly hosts the new lion-headed Peugeot logo. The reverse cut of the rear bumper gives the eye-catching profile a powerful look.

The new Peugeot 408 stands firmly on the ground with 19-inch JASPE wheels in Allure equipment and 19-inch GRAPHITE wheels in GT equipment, giving confidence. Details such as the lion’s tooth design light signature at the front and the three-clawed LED taillights at the rear perfectly integrate the 408 into the Peugeot family.

The Matrix LED technology used in the headlights of the Peugeot 408 GT provides high lighting performance, while at the same time allowing thin headlight designs. This headlight design gives the 408 a determined and powerful look. The light signature extends downwards with two LED strips in a lion’s tooth design integrated into the bumper.

The 408 has an exterior design in the form of an eye-catching Fastback body with strong SUV codes, which is unusual in the C segment. Produced using the EMP2 platform, the 408 measures 4,687mm in length, 1,859mm in width and 1,478mm in height. The wheelbase of 2,787 mm brings with it ample rear seat living space. With a front track of 1,589 mm and a rear track of 1,604 mm, the new PEUGEOT 408 displays a strong and confident stance with its 19-inch wheels.

When viewed from the front, the horizontal and long engine hood, which is the characteristic element of the new generation Peugeot models, draws attention. This design choice visually hides the hood/side cavities, while at the same time giving the car a modern and powerful look. Again, this design practice simplifies the outline of the body, ensuring that the body parts fit perfectly.

The front grille gives the new 408 an assertive and powerful appearance. It also hosts the new brand logo that hides the radar of driver assistance systems. Having the grille in body color allows it to integrate with the overall bumper. This design approach, which is used in the new generation Peugeot models, is also a sign for the transition to electric.

Large black surfaces characterize the graphic theme of the front and visually emphasize the car’s width and solidity. Black guards surrounding the body combine to enclose and contrast the lion-tooth design light signature, increasing the visibility of the light signature.

The profile of the new Peugeot 408 is highlighted by the dividing line of black and body-coloured parts designed to reinforce dynamism. Again, this dividing line draws attention to the width of the interior, especially with the side window line and the rear window line. The side protection coatings of the body and wheel arches cut the body color at a certain angle, creating an inverted effect with a curved line and extending to the rear bumper.

The rear of the roofline bears a particularly big responsibility in terms of aerodynamics. The airflow is optimized by being directed towards the tailgate spoiler by two “cat ears” forming a perfectly aerodynamic corridor.

The 19-inch wheels stand out even when stationary, creating a unique visual impact when driving at low speeds. The extraordinary design of the wheels also offers a structure compatible with the concept approach of the new 408. The new Peugeot 408 is produced in 6 different body colors: Obsession Blue, Titanium Grey, Techno Grey, Elixir Red, Pearlescent White and Pearl Black.

The rest of the console is functional and practical, with an armrest, two USB C sockets (charge/data), two large cup holders and storage spaces for up to 33 liters.

The new Peugeot 408, with its 2,787 mm wheelbase, offers a wide living space to its rear seat passengers with 188 mm legroom. The front seats provide legroom for rear passengers to tuck their legs under. The design of the seats and the seat angle give passengers the opportunity to make the most of the space for optimum comfort during their journey. Starting from the Allure trim level, there are two USB-C charging sockets at the front and two behind the center console.

The new Peugeot 408 is equipped as standard with a rear seat that folds in two parts (60/40) and a ski hatch. In the GT version, the two sections can be folded practically with two remote controls located on the sides of the trunk. The new 408 offers a spacious trunk with 536 liters. With the rear seats folded down, the luggage volume reaches 1,611 liters.

There is also 36 liters of additional storage space under the luggage floor. When the backrest is folded, objects up to 1.89 meters can be loaded. The 12V socket, LED lighting, storage net, strap and bag hooks in the trunk support ease of use. Since the tailgate is fixed to the trunk lid, it lifts up with the lid when the trunk lid is opened, making it easier to use.

The electric tailgate, which opens automatically on the GT version, facilitates luggage access when hands are full. To open the trunk lid, the foot reach under the bumper, the remote control, the trunk lid button or the trunk release button on the dashboard can be used.

The LED ambient lighting (8 color options) behind the central display emits a light that is easy on the eyes. The same light extends to the door panels made of cloth, Alcantara® or original pressed aluminium, depending on equipment level.

The warmth and acoustic comfort of the new Peugeot 408 has been enhanced by special glass technologies. 3.85 mm thick front and rear glass, laminated front and side windows offer additional sound insulation and safety.

The air conditioning system also contributes to the thermal comfort of the passengers. The front vents are positioned high and there are two vents behind the center console for rear seat passengers. AQS (Air Quality System) constantly monitors the quality of the air entering the passenger compartment. The system automatically activates the outside air recirculation. Starting from the GT trim level, the air purification system Clean Cabin is also offered. Air quality is displayed on the central touchscreen.

Unique Driving Experience with Peugeot i-Cockpit

While the Peugeot i-Cockpit is one of the strongest points that distinguishes the Peugeot models from their competitors, it has been further developed and modernized with each new generation.

The digital display is fully customizable and has various display modes (Navigation, Radio/Media, Driving Assistance Systems, Energy Flow, etc.) that can be changed from the control panel.

The front console structure of the new Peugeot 408 is based on high ventilation architecture. This architecture places the air outlets in a high position in the head area of the passengers to increase thermal comfort. Again, this architecture allows the central 10-inch touchscreen, which is slightly lower than the digital display in front of the driver, to approach the driver.

The system is supported by customizable i-toggle buttons, which are clearly placed below the central display, providing a level of aesthetics and technology unmatched in its segment. Each i-toggle acts as a touch-sensitive shortcut tailored to the user’s preference, be it climate, phone settings, radio station or app.

One of the goals of the Peugeot Interior Design Team when designing the cabin of the new 408 was to balance the space between the front passengers. The PEUGEOT i-Cockpit® continues the driver-oriented central display philosophy that optimizes driving ergonomics. The center console is deliberately shaped by a passenger-oriented design. All dynamic controls are grouped into an arc on the driver’s side. With a single touch, the driver can choose between the driving modes of the 8-speed EAT8 automatic transmission.
