New Peugeot 308 THP on Display at 1Utama Shopping Centre
Nasim Sdn Bhd, the official distributor and custodian for the Peugeot brand in Malaysia introduced the new 308 THP to the Malaysian public at Peugeot’s Motion & Emotion Roadshow at 1 Utama Shopping Centre.
An evolved icon of refinement, the new 308 THP displays the latest Peugeot design language and dons a dynamic new look with a re-profiled front bumper, bonnet and radiator grille that incorporates the iconic Peugeot Lion emblem.
Inside, the stylish new car features the signature Peugeot i-Cockpit ergonomically designed to ensure safety and comfort with its compact steering wheel and 9.7-inch HD touchscreen, as well as a heads-up display positioned at the driver’s optimum eye level and raised centre console.
It offers advanced connectivity features such as Mirrorlink, Android Auto and Apple Carplay for seamless pairing with smart devices. Additionally, the 180° Reverse Camera with auto zoom enables easier parking and reversing.
Compared to the pre-facelift model, the 308 THP is edgier and more responsive thanks to the proven award-winning 1.6 litre THP engine mated to a six-speed auto transmission with Quickshift Technology. It has an output of 167 PS at 6,000 rpm and 240 Nm at 1,400 rpm of peak torque, which enables it to reach a top speed of 211 km/h.
Crafted with safety and comfort in mind, the 308 THP is 140 kg lighter, more compact and sturdy with a lower centre of gravity for added stability. The car is also packed with safety systems including Peugeot Hill Start Assist, Electronic Stability Program (ESP), Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) and Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD).
Available in five elegant colours namely Pearl White, Ultimate Red, Artense Grey, Magnetic Blue and Nera Black, the 308 THP is available for viewing from today until 28th October 2018 at the 1 Utama New Wing alongside other award-winning Peugeot models – the new 308 GTi, 3008 SUV, 5008 SUV and 208 Puretech.
