Peugeot plotting 408 GT to rival CLA – report

by SpeedLux

As per a recent report Peugeot is working on a 408 GT model to tackle the Mercedes-Benz CLA.

The rumor about a 408 GT is back as according to British media Peugeot is in process of developing a competitor for the Mercedes-Benz CLA. Slated to go on sale in 2016, the new model will ride on the firm’s EMP2 platform with the interior mostly carried over from the new 308 but with more premium materials. Talking about the exteriors, it will be wider, lower and longer than the 308 and should adopt a more aggressive styling likely to be previewed by an upcoming Beijing-bound concept.

The engine lineup will probably be carried over from the second generation 308 and so we can expect to find turbocharged gasoline motors from a 1.2- to a 1.6-liter with outputs varying from 128 hp (95 kW) to 168 hp (125 kW), while 1.6- and 2.0-liter diesel engines will outputs ranging from 118 hp (88 kW) to 178 hp (133 kW).

Aside from a four-door coupe 408 GT, Peugeot is also working on a 6008 crossover as well as a range-topping 608 sedan which should come out in 2017.
