Chronology
Predecessor Peugeot 307 Saloon

The Peugeot 408 is a compact car produced by Peugeot. It was unveiled on January 25, 2010,[1] at the Beijing Auto Show and sales began in China on April 8, 2010.[2] In November 2010, production of the 408 commenced in El Palomar, Buenos Aires, Argentina,[3] with sales starting in April 2011.

Despite its name, it is not the successor to the Peugeot 407, but rather a long-wheelbase saloon version of the Peugeot 308 hatchback,[4] primarily targeted at emerging markets such as China.[5]

The 408 is not slated for the Western European market, and not built there. Depending on where this car is produced, there are both internal and external differences. The front of the car is one of the visible changes, but also the low rear end is different. Indeed, in some markets, there are cars with the front of the South American version and the back of the Chinese version. Inside the vehicle, the most noticeable difference is seen at the door.
