At the 2014 Paris Motor Show, Peugeot will unveil its new 308 GTI, a high-performance version of the well-known 308 a.k.a. the 2014 Car of the Year. The latest reports indicate that Peugeot 308 GTI will use a 1.6-liter THP engine that will deliver around 250 hp (186 kW).

In addition, the vehicle will feature a stiffer suspension, bigger wheels, larger brakes but also a new design in order to highlight its capabilities. Later in 2015, Peugeot will introduce the 308 R, a more powerful version of its hatchback, which was highlighted by a concept version back in 2013 at the Frankfurt Motor Show (IAA).

If you don’t remember, the 308 R Concept was powered by a 1.6-liter THP four-cylinder engine developing 270 hp (201 kW) and 330 Nm (243 lb-ft) of torque.

The new 308 GTI is expected to debut next month as Peugeot will probably tease its new vehicle closer to the launch date. Stay tuned, we will reveal you more detail as soon as we have them!
