Peugeot confirms 308 GTI with 250 or 270 hp

Article by Christian A., on October 13, 2014

Many of you folks were expecting the 308 GTI at the 2014 Paris Motor Show but instead that hot hatch, Peugeot brought the 308 GT. Still, the French manufacturer is working on the 308 GTI and this new model will arrive with 250 or 270 hp. Plans for the new vehicle were revealed during a presentation of the company’s Peugeot Sport arm.

We expect the new 308 GTI to get the same 1.6-liter four-cylinder THP engine used by the RCZ R but also found on the 308 R Concept, developing up to 270 hp (199 kW) and 330 Nm (243 lb-ft) of torque.

The engine is capable to push the RCZ R from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 5.9 seconds, while offering a top speed of 155 mph or 250 km/h.

Peugeot is expected to unveil its all-new 308 GTI next year and just like it did with the 308 GT, we could also see a 308 GTI Wagon. When it comes to design, the 308 GTI will arrive with a sporty design, stiffer suspension, bigger wheels and larger brakes.
