New Peugeot 308 GT in Malaysia now

Nasim Sdn Bhd (NSB), franchise holder, importer and sole distributor for Peugeot automobiles in Malaysia has recently introduced the new Peugeot 308 GT THP 175, at an estimated price of RM159,999 (OTR).

Powered by a 1.6 turbo high pressure (THP) engine - shared with the Mini Cooper S - the 308 GT is good for 175bhp at 6000rpm and an easily accessible 240Nm of torque from a low 1600rpm. Such output figures enables a maximum speed of 225kmh and acceleration in 8.3 seconds from 0-100kmh, achieved through the gears of a 6 speed manual transmission. Running on 18inch wheels, the THP engine manages to return a fuel consumption of approximately 7.6 litres/100km in a combined cycle, as claimed by Automobiles Peugeot.

Exterior-wise, the new 308's frontal visage is hard to be mistaken for anything else, especially with the larger emblem of the iconic Peugeot lion sitting higher on the bonnet. The newly swept back automatic Xenon headlights signify the modern yet sporty Pug character of the new Peugeot 308 GT. Its standard full panoramic roof endows the driver and passengers a more airy view of the world outside.

The interior of the Peugeot 308 GT comes fitted with 6 airbags which helps it to achieve full Euro NCAP safety ratings of 5 stars.

This newly arrived Peugeot 308 GT is now available for viewing and booking at all NSB showrooms and authorised NSB dealers. For further information, please contact the Peugeot Careline at 1-800-88-6292.

I wonder if the 308 will be available in CKD form later. This will definitely make it affordable to Malaysians.
