Article by Christian Andrei, on August 26, 2010

These are the first images to have been released of the Peugeot 308 sporty version, the GTi. This model is offered exclusively as a five-door model which is quite unusual for a sport-oriented car.

To distinguish the 308 GTi from the regular versions, it has received some technical and styling upgrades. This car will be the first to have the GTi badge that will be used all over Europe, not only in the UK.

Powering the 308 GTi is the 1.6-liter turbocharged engine, which delivers 200hp, and has from 5,500 to 6,800 rpm, and a constant 202.8 lb ft of torque (275 Nm) between 1,700 and 4,500 rpm. 

This engine, which is also found on the Peugeot RCZ and the Citroen DS3, offers low fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. Its average fuel rating is 34.1 mpg (6.9 liters/100 km), while its CO2 emissions level is at 159 g/km. 

This engine is a product of the BMW-PSA partnership, which brought together a number of innovative technologies like THP (Twin-Scroll turbocharger and direct petrol injection), and VTi (variable valve lift and valve timing).

The unit is coupled with a 6-speed manual gearbox, enabling the car to go from zero to 62 mph in 7.7 seconds and on to a top speed of 147.2 mph (237 km/h). Peugeot installed the Sound System technology on this model, offering an engine noise that's quite distinctive. In France, the 308 GTi will be launched on the10th June, priced at €26,900.
