The iconic Peugeot GTi badge is returning, and will feature on the eagerly awaited 308 GTi, developed by Peugeot Sport. The GTi badge returns to the medium car segment for the first time since the 1990s, with the 308 GTi being a high-end performance hot hatch designed with the sophisticated and enthusiastic driver in mind.

Extensively developed by Peugeot Sport - Peugeot's in-house motor sport engineers - the 308 GTi offers a striking new intepretation of the 308's sleek exterior design, enhanced sports-oriented interior detailing and an unparalleled driving experience. Powered by a 1.6-litre THP petrol engine, the 308 GTi is available in two power outputs: 250bhp and 270bhp. The 308 GTi also features Torsen limited-slip differential as standard, making it possible to drive faster around corners with enhanced grip and handling.

Standard equipment on the 308 GTi includes a Driver Sport Pack. Pressing the Sport button on the centre console enhances engine noise growl and changes the accelerator pedal mapping. Also standard is red 'Peugeot' lettering on the grille, sports side skirts, new twin exhaust system with black diffuser, GTi badging, full LED headlamps, front LED sequential indicators, reversing camera, front and rear parking sensors, Peugeot Open & Go (keyless entry & push button start), satellite navigation and digital radio. The GTi 250 has 18-inch 'Diamant' alloy wheels while the GTi 270 the larger 19-inch 'Carbone' lightweight alloy wheels.

The interior has also been carefully specified to complement the 308 GTi's exterior. The door sill carries the Peugeot Sport and GTi signature, while the foot pedals, foot rest and gear knob are finished in aluminum. Red stitching features on the upholstery, door panels, gear lever and premium floor mats. The GTi 270 features Peugeot Sport race-inspired seats, upholstered in leather effect and Alcantara, which provide enhanced lateral support.

The 308 GTi by Peugeot Sport will be available on 5th November.
