Peugeot 408 is photographed with no disguises at all

Peugeot 407 is about to be replaced. Whenever Forum Peugeot brings pictures of a car so uncovered with disguises (in fact, this one is completely naked), we can expect an official presentation for the next few days. And what a presentation we will have. The new 408 looks a very nice addition to mid-size sedans.

Although the pictures do not present much, the shape of the new car is clearly inherited from Citroën C5. The resemblance has a good reason: both cars are built over the same platform. With that in mind, they should also share engines, so expect the new sedan from Peugeot to be powered by three petrol engines (1.8-litre with 127 bhp, 2-litre with 143 bhp or 3-litre V6 with 215 bhp) and four diesel powerplants (2-litre with 110 bhp, 2.2-litre with 138 bhp, 2.2-litre with 173 bhp and 2.7-litre V6 with 208 bhp). Dimensions should also be very close: 4.78 m long, 1.86 m wide, 1.45 m tall and a wheelbase of 2.82 m.

As we have said, we will very likely have the confirmation to all these ideas very soon. Any delay will not be due to the car development, but to business conditions. The official presentation is almost sure to happen at the Geneva Motor Show, where Peugeot will also present its "crossover", the 3008.
