The Peugeot 308 GTi was already launched worldwide and will arrive in Australia in its two versions, the 250 and the 270, starting somewhere next year. Both versions will come with distinctive features and prices.
In terms of body features, both versions will look the same but will come with different set of wheels. The 250 will use the 18-inch wheels with Michelin Pilot Sport 3 rubbers, while the 270 will be wrapped with the 19-inch alloy wheels with the Super Sport tires.
Inside the cabin, both will look rather the same, except for the 260 version which will add up the sports seats. The common features include the red-stitched steering, aluminum fear shift and pedals, and a few more.
Under the hood, the Peugeot 308 GTi will pack a 1.6-liter turbocharged petrol unit, with 246 horsepower and 330 Nm of torque, capable of reaching 100 km/h in a good 6.2 seconds, in the 250 version.
The 308 GTi 270 will score higher with the same engine, meaning 266 horsepower and 330 Nm of torque, with a better 6.0 seconds from 0 to 10 km/h. Both the 250 and the 270 will sport a six-speed manual transmission, which will send the power the front wheels.
The Peugeot 308 GTi will rival the Volkswagen Golf R or the Ford Focus ST, with prices yet to be confirmed. We should expect new info next year.
