Peugeot has unveiled the new 308 GTi, a performance-oriented hot hatch
developed for thrill-seekers.
Powered by a 1.6-liter THP Stop&Start (S&S) petrol engine and extensively developed by Peugeot Sport, this latest Peugeot GTi is offered in two versions with 248 hp and 268 hp outputs.
The clean lines of the modern exterior style takes the Brand's now-familiar design language in a more assertive and contemporary direction.
308 GTi: Interior Design
The interior styling of the 308 GTi by Peugeot Sport is in keeping with its performance-oriented exterior. Red stitching is used on the upholstery, door panels, gear lever and floor mats. The door sill carries the GTi and Peugeot Sport signature and is finished in aluminum. The same material is used on the pedals, foot rest and gear knob.
In the top-spec GTi 270 version, Peugeot Sport 'bucket' seats are upholstered in Alcantara with red stitching providing cosseting lateral support to ensure the driver feels at one with the car at all times. The compact steering wheel has a full-grain leather design featuring the GTi logo at the bottom and a red centring mark at the top. It also leaves plenty of room to see the head-up display over it, housing the instrument panel read-outs with chequered backdrops, and the GTi greeting at its center.
The Peugeot i-Cockpit instrument concept has been an integral aspect of the 308's appeal and sales success, and continues to be more expressive on this range-topping car. The centrally-mounted, driver-facing touch-screen offers ergonomic convenience and state-of-the-art functionality, with the Redline theme adding a final touch of flair.
For customers who want the ultimate high-octane experience, the 308 GTi by Peugeot Sport is equipped as standard with the Driver Sport Pack. Pressing the Sport button on the center console changes the display from white to red, shows additional information on the central read-out (power, torque, boost, lateral and longitudinal acceleration), enhances the engine's throaty growl and changes accelerator pedal mapping for a more engaging driving experience.
