The 208 GTi is the sporty incarnation of Peugeot’s popular supermini. Offering plenty of style, even more standard equipment and a dynamic engine, the 208 GTi is guaranteed to thrill. This model is available in three grades: GTi, GTi Prestige and GTi by Peugeot Sport.
GTi badging distinguishes the vehicle’s exterior, and the striking, bespoke GTI front grille boasts a chequered-flag design that is highlighted by chrome inserts on Piano Black. Chrome also features on the car’s power-folding door mirrors, and more lustre is provided by the 17-inch Carbon Grey alloy wheels. An eye-catching rear fascia begins at the top with a sports spoiler, and finishes at the bottom with a double chrome exhaust tailpipe. LEDs feature in daytime running lights, indicators and rear lights. Cornering-assist fog lights are included too.
A stylish cabin features sports seats upholstered using full-grain black leather and cloth, adorned with the GTi emblem. A leather steering wheel and a leather and chrome gear knob are also included. The car’s instrument panel features an LED surround whose vivid red hues really pop when natural light falls. Other notable details include aluminium touches on pedals and door sills, the latter embellished with ‘Peugeot’ in red letters. Power-assisted steering, an electrochromic rear-view mirror and electric front windows are among the standard interior features included.
A 1.6-litre petrol engine produces 205bhp and 300Nm of torque. Paired to a six-speed manual gearbox, this enables the car to go from 0-60mph in approximately 6.7 seconds, before achieving a top speed of 143mpg. The 208 GTi returns up to 52.3mpg and a CO2 emissions figure of 125g/km.
A six-speaker sound system includes DAB digital radio, with audio controls mounted on the steering wheel. Bluetooth, USB and AUX connectivity is also included. A seven-inch multifunction colour touchscreen offers audio, communication and app integration functionality. Driver aids include rear parking sensors, Anti-lock Braking System, Electronic Brakeforce Distribution, Emergency Brake Assist and Electronic Stability Programme.
Childproof door locks, ISOFIX anchor points, seatbelt reminders and multiple airbags are among the passive safety features included. The vehicle is secured by an ultrasonic alarm, an immobiliser and deadlocks.
