Peugeot returns to the world of the GTi with the launch of the 308 GTi, a sporty hatchback for a new era: enjoyable for day to day driving and environmentally-friendly. Available exclusively as a 5 door model only, it combines a modern synthesis of versatility and driveability.
Sporty driving in step with the times
The 308 GTi has a sporty nature that is in tune with our current times:
- well-heeled athleticism for day-to-day driving enjoyment and a high level of onboard comfort at all engine speeds but, stopping short of being a specialist vehicle, yet still able to offer real excitement when its “driver” asks more of it.
- environmentally-friendly, combining good levels of performance with fuel consumption of only 6.9 litres/100 km for 159 g/km of CO2.
The 1.6 litre THP 147 kW (200 bhp) engine - Maximising efficiency
At the heart of the vehicles sporty nature is the all new 1.6 litre THP 147 kW (200 bhp) engine, launched simultaneously in the RCZ Coupé, a key factor in the overall efficiency of the 308 GTi.
Combining a number of innovative technologies – THP (Twin-Scroll turbocharger and direct petrol injection), and VTi (variable valve lift and valve timing) – this engine, mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox, offers high levels of driveability.
Its maximum power of 147 kW is available from 5500 to 6800 rpm, combined with a constant maximum torque of 275 Nm between 1700 and 4500 rpm, the 308 GTi also offers particularly low fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
The sound of the engine is also particularly distinctive during acceleration thanks to the adoption of Sound System technology.
