Developed by Peugeot Sport, the new Peugeot 308 GTi is the top-of-the-line grade in the 308 series and offers pace, power, sharp looks and exciting features. The new Peugeot 308 GTi cuts a dash in the UK’s towns and cities, but really comes into its own on the open road.
The first thing you will notice about the new Peugeot 308 GTi is the bold use of colour that distinguishes it from virtually every other car you will see. The second is the vehicle’s distinctive bearing, which is the result of a lower-than-normal chassis and imposing 19-inch aluminium Carbone wheels.
The car’s sporty capabilities are more than hinted at by twin exhaust pipes and a radiator grille at the front that is adorned by the Peugeot Sport chequered flag motif.
When you slip into the bucket seat of the new Peugeot 308 GTi, you will soon realise that you are behind the wheel of a special car. The seat is upholstered in Alcantara and features a red-stitch finish and the Peugeot Sport branding. Ahead of you, a neat leather steering wheel offers optimal grip and is adorned with a red ‘centering’ strip at the top and the GTi emblem at the bottom. The dashboard controls are concise and well delineated, making the driving experience simple and intuitive. There is further evidence of red stitching throughout the rest of the cabin, on the luxury carpet mats, door cards and gear lever gaiter.
The new Peugeot 308 GTi comes with a choice of two 1.6-litre petrol engines, one offering 246bhp and the other providing 266bhp. The latter has a peak torque of 244Nm and enables the car to go from 0-60mph in a little over six seconds before achieving a top speed of 155mph. The suspension provides you with a stable and responsive drive that handles corners and bumps with equal aplomb.
Fitted with six airbags that help protect front and rear-seat occupants, the new Peugeot 308 GTi also features a raft of other safety features.
Peugeot’s Connect SOS system instantly informs the emergency services of your location if an airbag is inflated or seatbelt pre-tensioners are activated. Simply by pressing the car’s SOS button, you can also autonomously contact the emergency services. Strong and durable brake discs provide plenty of extra power if you ever need to brake quickly.
A 9.7-inch colour touchscreen features satellite navigation and a variety of audio functions. Enjoy the crystal-clear sounds generated by a DAB radio, and stream your favourite tunes from your compatible mobile devices using the car’s Bluetooth® connectivity. A USB port enables you to plug-and-play your compatible media devices too.
