Here’s a snippet from Allcarschannel.com’s review of the Peugeot 208, distributed by Nasim (Peugeot Malaysia):
For many bread and butter cars in the market, a lot of emphasis is placed on the front and rear designs, with little imagination given to its side profile. Not so with the Peugeot 208. Its side stance continues to create a strong impression that started from the front, taking that aggressiveness all the way to the back. The doors have two prominent angular lines running along the sides, with the lower line starting from the front fender all the way to the rear arch. The C-pillar sweeps downwards with muscular curves, adding coherence to the sides and front. From an abstract point of view, the side profile of the 208 reminds me of a lion crouched on all fours and ready to pounce.
The Peugeot 208 distributed domestically is available with a naturally aspirated 1.6-liter DOHC 16-valve VTi powerplant that churns 122ps@6,000rpm and 160Nm@4,250rpm. The powerplant is paired to Auto Adaptive Tiptronic 4-speed autobox to deliver sufficient power and torque to the front wheels.
