Powered by a highly-efficient 1.6-litre THP Stop & Start (S&S) petrol engine and extensively developed by Peugeot Sport.

The 308 GTi will be offered in two versions, one with 250 hp and the other with 270 hp. It can reach 100 km/h from a standstill in 6 seconds, compared to 6.2 seconds for the 308 GTi 250, while the top speed in both cars is electronically limited to 155 mph.

The 308 GTi has been developed to have a capable chassis that has top-level handling and performance enhanced by the Torsen limited-slip differential on the 270 hp model.

Peugeot is proud to add the 308 GTi by Peugeot Sport to its stable. This is a car that has generated great anticipation among enthusiasts aware of Peugeot's history of hot hatches in the B and C-segments.
