Following the successful launch of the new Peugeot 208, Peugeot have confirmed the production of the new Peugeot 208 GTi due in the spring next year. The Peugeot 208 GTi is a playful sports car, powerful and safe but also a practical hatchback. Light in weight at 1160kg the GTi emits CO2 at just 145g/km. Powered by a1.6-litre THP 200bhp petrol engine the Peugeot 208 GTi is capable of 0-62 mph in less than 7.0 seconds, this performance benefits from the improvement achieved from lightening the weight of the vehicle.

The exterior is particularly eyecatching due to the new halogen headlamps which are visible both by day and night. These carefully designed lamps with a rectangular internal structure use LED technology for the directional indicators and daytime lighting.

The interior is equally as eye catching as the dashboard houses a high-mounted instrument panel with an innovative and distinctive light signature. Echoing the LED functions of the headlamps, the dials are surrounded with satin chrome beads backlit by LEDs, whereas the needles move on a brushed aluminium background. The passenger compartment is also punctuated with carefully designed components. So, the vents, the side decorations of the touchscreen, the dashboard decoration, the steering wheel insert, the seat belts, the front and rear door crossbars all blend with the same interior ambiance. The aluminium pedal bracket and footrest provide the final touch to this technological and refined interior.
