REBIRTH OF THE LEGEND
Coming from the genes of the rally legend 205 GTi is the new 208 GTi. Unashamedly showing off its sporting genes with its chequered radiator grille and feline looks. Its compact lines are emphasized by widened wheel arches, special body sills and elegant chrome mirrors. The standard 17” alloy wheels set the tone: the GTi spirit has returned and you’ll see it in red detailing, from the lower grille finisher to the Peugeot lettering found on the chequered grille and the tailgate. The front face captivates as much as its impresses with halogen headlamps and direction indicators that are equipped with latest generation LED lights guides as standard. Sporty and sleek, the 208 GTi is simply unforgettable.
SPORTY AND CONNECTED
The up to date and elegant red and black colour scheme and dark headlining emphasize the dynamism of the passenger compartment, which is enhanced by a dashboard trimmed in leather effect material with red overstitching and numerous satin chrome decorations.
Not a single detail of the GTi legend has been forgotten in the creation of the 208 GTi. The quarter panel inserts, stamped GTi as a tribute to its illustrious predecessor, will please purists as will the emblematic spoiler which extends the dynamism of the silhouette. Cutting into the gloss black rear skirt highlighted with chrome, the chrome dual exhaust tailpipe sends out the joyful sound of the GTi’s engine.
QUICKEN YOUR EMOTIONS
An Exhilarating engine is fundamental to the legend and the latest one is no exception. The 1.6 THP petrol engine with 200 bhp gives the 208 GTi effective and dynamic road holding that is nothing short of superb. All in all a legendary emotion has been brought back to life – the emotion of driving the GTi.
TAKE YOUR SEAT IN THE LEGEND
The 208 GTi is equipped with comfortable sport seats and full grain leather sport steering wheel. Seats are upholstered in full grain half leather and caro cloth are finished with elegant red overstitching, aluminium door sills, embossed with the GTi logo, and aluminium sport pedals. It’s a new and distinctive experience.
INTUITIVE PARK ASSIST
Being the only car in its class to feature front parking sensors, Peugeot implemented the park aiding option to the small hatch. You activate the function and then drive slow along lateral parked cars. When sensors detects a suitable space it warns you to stop right away and park. So you put the car in reverse and operate only the pedals, leaving the steering wheel do its business. The system works both ways, as you can even use it when departing from the parking space.
