A budget Lamborghini Urus?!

State hi to the brand !

We've got our hands on 's all-new half hatchback, half SUV, and we're about to see if it can stand apart in this oh-so-crowded vehicle market.

For beginners, the 408 is plainly a looker. With loads of creases and sharp angular taillights, we're getting some serious Urus vibes from the rear! The excellent looks continue up front too, with a cool grille design and 's immediately recognisable fang daytime running lights.

What's more, the great appearances continue as soon as you step inside the cabin. There's a cool dash design up leading, and the seats aren't just comfy, however likewise been available in an Alcantara-like material. The infotainment system is a genuine winner, too, with both the main screen and digital dials being extremely customisable.

It's easy to select an engine, as there are only three to pick from. The entry-level features a 1.2-litre turbo petrol that can provide 130hp, and after that there are 2 plug-in hybrids, with the range-topper being a 1.6-litre turbo petrol combined with an electrical motor which can provide 225hp. It can likewise drive for approximately 40 miles on electrical power alone.

All sounds pretty positive, best? Well, there's one key sticking point … The rate! The 408 starts at around ₤ 31,000, and the one we have our hands on here will set you back around ₤ 46,000! So is it worth it? You'll require to stick with Mat to see for yourself!

    Waited for this like a long time ago!!! Finally!! The interior is a pinnacle just like they used to be back then 2017. Only thing is the name… Its more like an SUV so could name like 4008 or something

      @dee prod omg righttt!? I even criticized that on my insta! Having cheap plastics at the back I so hate it on our 5008!. And in this case it’s massive amount. My only hope & what I want to see is a larger 7008 😭 a big fat large SUV that can easily compete with BM’s n Merc’s…! And I’m counting my fingers on the next gen 5008! What they’ll do one their flagship SUV / their flagship 😍

      Sadly the market doesn’t want traditional saloon style cars, it would either be a case of using the 408 name or discontinuing it completely

      It’s NOT a SUV. Height: 148 cm

    I don’t know, but in the Netherlands it is ridiculously expensive, compared to a 308.

    Faintly reminds me of the Rover SD1 from the 1980’s.

    Like most current cars, it relocks if you unlock but then don’t open a door in order to prevent you accidentally opening it and walking away. MB are the same.

    Damn that car seems to struggle with power even with that strongest engine, can you imagine what a torture is to run it with only 1.2 3 cilinder engine.

      Its because of the French government. If they don’t do this small engines, they must pay a big fines.

      @Piorunowski Yes it is. But the French government is giving a big fines for ”bigger” ccm. Even for 2.0L…

      You can have a great design, a great powertrain, or a great price. Rarely can you get all of them together.

    We need more of these reviews. I love how you can watch one from years ago or watch a new one, and they’re done exactly the same. And you always make me laugh Mat.

    Great looking car the 408, is but I’ll stick with my new 5008 it has more space for my needs, I’m enjoying the Peugeot so far my 3008 was brilliant had 4 years without a any problems.

    Mat, an advice for Peugeots, Citroens and Vauxhalls: they automatically lock after 30 seconds if you unlock them and don’t open any door. So open a door and close again and it won’t lock

    1. Mawerick77 Avatar

      My T8 VW Transporter also does this. It’s not a unique feature.

    2. Resnicanin Avatar

      My Peugeot 207 2007 does this same but it locks after 1 minute.

    3. Daniel Avatar

      My 1999 BMW E46 does that

      My Ford model T 1926, 4 door-touring does this.

      It’s probably the same chip in most cars. My Fiesta does it.

    12:28 Usually this organization is called “AGR” what means action for healthy backs (literally: Aktion gesunder Rücken), but I think the other abbreviation comes only through a French translation.
    However, the seats are really good for long trips. Opel introduced this at that time (GM) and Stellantis probably uses this marking now for all brands.

    Peugeot have always had a very good reputation for the comfort of their seats, complete opposite of Vauxhall actually.
