The China-spec Peugeot 408 Sedan has been spied with minimal camouflage ahead of next week's debut at Beijing Motor Show.

Following the introduction of the 308 hatchback and wagon, Peugeot is getting ready to expand the range with a sedan version which in China (and possibly in Europe) will be commercialized with the 408 moniker. There's not much to report in terms of the design as the only difference is at the back where there's a longer overhang together with slightly modified taillight graphics.

Trunk capacity will be between the hatchback's 470 liters and the SW's 610 liters so expect somewhere in the region of 550 liters. Just like its cousins, the sedan will ride on the EMP2 platform and will be offered in Europe with a generous lineup of Euro 6-compliant gasoline and diesel 4-cylinder engines. It could also receive the recently introduced small yet powerful and frugal 130 PS 1.2-liter three-cylinder turbocharged gasoline engine.

The China-spec version will be manufactured by the Dongfeng-PSA joint venture and will be offered with 117 bhp 1.6-liter and 140 bhp 1.8-liter naturally-aspirated engines along with a turbocharged 1.6-liter delivering 163 bhp (121 kW). Prices will start at approximately 125,000 yuan (20,100 USD) and rise to about 185,000 yuan (29,800 USD).

A full reveal is slated for April 20 at the Beijing Motor Show.
