Owner reviews Peugeot 408 2020-2021

This is the longest and tallest sedan in the C-class, and for good reason – after all, not only in the front, but also in the back, it is more spacious than in many D-classes, and you can not even talk about the trunk! Unfortunately, the Russian assembly is felt (creaks, rattling between the plastic parts of the cabin, etc.). Prior to that, he owned a restyled 308 French assembly – there was no such thing.

There is also a clear attempt to save money on multimedia: the music sounds disgusting. The radio hiss, and the head unit clearly lacks performance, which is why it frankly dulls in CarPlay mode.

Review of the new Peugeot 408 1.6 (150 hp) on the machine in 2021

In general, the engine together with the gearbox in everyday use is the main disadvantage of the car. With top Solaris, Rio and Rapids, you won’t be able to chase. Because they have a weight of 1,000 – 1,100 kg, and you have 1,350, excluding the driver, passengers, fuel and luggage.

Thus, you will not be able to portray the hero of the movie “Taxi” – forget about it. Rather, you will portray the hero of the movie “Taxi Driver” performed by Robert De Niro, you remember, where a big car slowly floats through the streets of a big city accompanied by gentle saxophone music. If you buy a car with automatic transmission, the impression will only increase.

The handling is good, especially on the track. The power steering is not too soft, so accidentally touching the steering wheel while driving at high speed will not lead to tragedy. Separately, I note that the steering wheel has good feedback, you can feel the level of grip and on what surface you are driving. In combination with a comfortable, beautiful and ergonomic steering wheel, this makes the car much more sporty.

The suspension is fire. Reliable (known since dorestayling) and reinforced for our roads. Medium hardness, it does not affect the control much, but it has a positive effect on comfort. For a family car, the most it.

Dmitry, review about Peugeot 408 1.6 (150 hp) with automatic transmission in 2020

To date, the mileage is 2,000 km. I am satisfied with the purchase. A huge comfortable steamer with a reliable, economical and high-torque diesel engine. Thing! Good traction, pleasant consumption. On the intercity from St. Petersburg to Yaroslavl, the average consumption showed 5.0 l / 100 km. In the city 7-7.5 l / 100 km. A 60 liter tank is enough for 1,100 km of track.

High ground clearance pleases. The deep rut works well, but the large overhangs will not make it feel like a crossover.

Peugeot 408 2021 in a new body

The new body of the Peugeot 408 2021 is built on the basis of the front-wheel drive “bogie” familiar from the hatchback 308. The front of the car is equipped with a MacPherson-type suspension, and at the back there is a semi-independent structure with a torsion beam. The sedan has disc brakes in the base, and they are also ventilated on the front wheels.

Compared to the same “three hundred and eighth”, the four-door running gear has been modernized: different springs and shock absorbers are involved here. This made it possible to strengthen the suspension, increasing its energy consumption. Restyled sedan Peugeot 408 FL has the following overall dimensions, mm

  • Length – 4 703
  • Width – 1815
  • Height – 1 505
  • Wheelbase – 2 717
  • Ground clearance (clearance) – 178

According to the data sheet, the trunk volume of the model is 560 liters. The car relies on a 60-liter fuel tank. Depending on the selected configuration, the curb weight ranges from 1,352 to 1,406 kg.

  • In the base, the Russian version of the Peugeot 408 has a 1.6-liter four-cylinder petrol engine with 115 hp. (150 Nm). It can work either with a five-speed manual or with a six-speed automatic. The manual transmission variant accelerates from zero to a hundred in 10.9 seconds, and its maximum speed reaches 189 km / h. Indicators of the version with automatic transmission are 12.5 seconds and 190 km / h, respectively.
  • Alternatively, the car can be ordered with a 1.6-liter turbodiesel with 114 horsepower (270 Nm), which works exclusively in tandem with a six-speed manual. This modification is capable of accelerating from 0-100 km / h in 11.6 seconds, reaching speeds up to 188 km / h.
  • The top-end version of the model is equipped with a 1.6-liter petrol “turbo four”, which produces 150 “horses” and 240 Nm of torque. From 0-100 km / h, such a sedan accelerates in 8.1 seconds, and its speed limit is 205 kilometers per hour.

Salon Peugeot 408 Sedan

The interior of the French sedan Peugeot 408 2021 model year by today’s standards seems somewhat outdated, but the finish is very high quality with the widespread use of soft plastic. The set multimedia model pleases with a wide functionality, however, the graphics and consistency of the menu leave much to be desired.

The cabin is quite spacious and light, with a huge windshield and a low sill line providing the driver with good visibility. Compared to the hatch, the front seats here have less developed lateral support and a simpler profile, but they are more versatile and suitable for people of all sizes. An almost flat sofa is installed on the second row, and there is no armrest even in the top configuration.

The base gasoline engine and diesel engine of the new Peugeot 408 sedan is enough end-to-end, while you can slightly cheer up the character of the car by activating the sport mode at the automatic transmission. By the way, the latter works very smoothly here, and gear changes are monitored only by the tachometer.

During the restyling, the developers modernized the model’s suspension by revising its settings. It is now almost impossible to pierce it, and even on bad roads it demonstrates high omnivorousness, smoothing out various kinds of defects. The price for high comfort was, albeit insignificant, but still a deterioration in handling: the sedan became susceptible to roll and swing.
