The 208 GTi is a sports model of the 208, Peugeot's mainstream compact car. It officially debuted at the Paris Motor Show in the fall of 2012, following the announcement of the new 208 in spring of the same year.
One of the development objectives of the 208 series was the redefining of their B-segment car, learning from the 207 that had become too big and heavy. The platform was carried over from the 207 but they successfully downsized the car by shaving down the overhang in the front and rear to make the overall length under 4 m. Its component materials were changed to make the car 100 kg lighter than the previous model.
This had especially great merits for the GTi, the sports model. They were now able to revisit the iconic 205 GTi that was a smash hit all around the world; a light, small, fun and fast sports model that is both chic and comfortable.
On the surface the changes are subtle, aside from the large roof spoiler and 18-inch wheels, plus trim differences. But thorough work has been done under the skin, with the front and rear tread width being widened by 10 mm and 20 mm respectively and the suspension, subframe and arms have been specially set for this model.
The legacy direct injection 1.6 litre inline 4 cylinder was powered up to 197 BHP / 28.0 kgfm and combined with a 6-speed manual transmission.
The 230 km/h top speed and the 0-100 km/h acceleration of 6.8 seconds puts the car in the top tier in this class of hot hatch cars.
This car can be purchased in the Peugeot section of Brand Central for 36,870 Credits.
