Every time Peugeot launches a new GTi it’s an occasion! Even if this badge appears on a fat and rather boring car such as the 308. This time it’s got all it needs to take on the mighty Golf GTI.

This new hot hatch by the French manufacturer comes with a twin-scroll turbocharger 1.6 liter fuel efficient engine which churns out 200 hp and 270 nm of torque, while retuning a very good fuel economy of 6.9 liters in 100 km, and emits 159 g/km of CO2.

This being a hot hatchback it naturally comes with some sporty features to set it apart from the rest of the range, such as a rear roof spoiler, an air diffuser in Perla Nera black, twin chrome exhaust pipes and… . The interior too is garnished with a sport steering wheel, aluminum pedals and piano black fascia.

The 2010 Peugeot 308 GTi also features sport suspension, 18-inch wheels and a smorgasbord of electronic driving aids for the sake of handling and driving fun. After all it’s a GTi and because of the old GTi-badged Peugeots, expectations from this car are quite high.
