The new Peugeot 408 follows Peugeot’s well-known design philosophy a step further with the fastback aerodynamic design of the body and the large slope of the roof at the rear to “tie” harmoniously with the large dimensions and to create a highly dynamic but at the same time elegant shape. Influences from the world of SUVs they come from the relatively long clearance of the body from the ground which reaches 189 millimeters with the 408 also carrying dark protections both on the domes and around the perimeter of the body.

Highlight of the new Peugeot model are the original 20-inch diameter rims which in turn contribute to strengthening the coupe SUV image of the new French fastback.

The impressive “show” given by the new Peugeot 408 with its exterior design continues in the cabin with the i-cockpit design philosophy of the French company giving a dynamic “present” here as well.
