With its sleek exterior design and striking good looks, it’s no surprise that the Peugeot 308 GTi turns heads on the road. When it comes to the interior, you’ll be equally impressed thanks to the luxurious attention to detail and technology at your fingertips thanks to the signature Peugeot iCockpit. However, it’s when you get behind the wheel and out onto the road that you’ll truly experience the power and performance of the 308 GTi.
State of the art engine
The Peugeot 308 GTi has been developed by Peugeot Sport to give this dynamic vehicle not only a sporty aesthetic but also a sporty performance thanks to the THP 270 S&S (Stop & Start) petrol engine. The engine boasts premium moving parts with forged aluminium pistons, reinforced connecting rods, connecting rod bearings with polymer projection, and reinforced connecting rod screws. With 200kW of power and 330 Nm of torque, you’ll love the powerful performance offered by the 308 GTi engine.
With all the power offered by your engine, you need a gearbox which is up to the challenge and the engineers at Peugeot Sport have certainly delivered with the gearbox design of the 308 GTi. Your six-speed manual gearbox features shot-blasted shafts and surface-hardened pinions which allows it to stand up to wear and tear. All this is possible through a thermo-chemical process which strengthens the parts. In addition, the shortened gearstick allows for easy acceleration for an exhilarating driving experience.
The tough design of the suspension system featured in the Peugeot 308 GTi means it’s more than capable of handling a range of different terrains for a smooth, comfortable drive. The suspension system features unique spring stiffness, a stiffened and extended bump stock, calibrated shock absorber, and hydraulic damping stop to reduce noise. All of these combine together to create a pleasurable drive no matter the conditions.
Torsen® Limited-Slip Differential
With the design of the 308 GTi undertaken by Peugeot Sport, it’s no surprise that there is an emphasis on precision handling for that sporty feel. With that in mind, your 308 GTi includes the Torsen Limited-Slip differential which helps to focus torque on the wheel with the most grip for precision cornering to allow you to accelerate out of bends more quickly for a dynamic experience.
Superior road grip
The wide tracks of the Peugeot 308 GTi give you maximum road grip and your road holding ability is further emphasised by the Michelin Pilot Super Sport 235/35 R19 which are durable and highly responsive. With the addition of a deformable torsion-beam rear axle, the whole system works together for a perfectly balanced performance.
