We have all been waiting to see the GTI badge back on Peugeot cars… infact it is as long ago as the 1990s when Peugeot last produced a GTI in this market segment.
The Peugeot 308 GTI will arrive in UK dealerships in 2 different versions. The first is the GTI 250hp which goes from 0-62mph in 6.2 seconds and is limited to 155 mph. The 2nd is the 308 GTI 270hp and this is the one that we are going to concentrate on with this blog as this is the fastest and most powerful.
The GTI 270hp sprints from 0.62mph in 6.0 seconds and is also limited to 155 mph.
Both Peugeots have been developed by their in-house motor sport engineer divisions at Peugeot Sport.

We Blog Any Car thoughts………………
We like alternatives…….. That’s why we started this blog. This Peugeot seems to be a good alternative to the typical cars in its class like the VW Golf GTI.
We liked what we witnessed on the Peugeot stand at the Frankfurt Motor show. It has a good feel and driving position, the small steering wheel allows you to see all the instruments in front of you, not forgetting the very well supported front sports seats.
The Peugeot GTI days are back!!!
