The Peugeot 308 GTi by Peugeot Sport also gets a facelift

The new front bumper has more prominent air intakes in black lacquer, with the lion in the centre, the letters "Peugeot" just above, and a more vertical grille. The headlights are LED for all functions. At the rear, the visual differences are minimal.

The 250 bhp version is no longer available, and is offered only with the 270 bhp engine, which has not changed its performance, fuel consumption or any other parameters. It continues to reach 100 km/h in 6 seconds, the kilometre from standstill in 25.3 seconds, a top speed of 250 km/h and an official fuel consumption of 6 l/100 km.


As a novelty, it incorporates the Driver Sport Pack, which includes a new button that says "Sport". Pressing it changes the colour of the instrumentation from white to red (previously it was always red), more interesting information appears -such as turbo pressure and G-forces-, the engine sound is "reinforced" (it points to a synthesizer) and the throttle becomes more sensitive.

In terms of connectivity, the latest generation touchscreen includes Tomtom Traffic 3D navigation system with traffic information, weather, parking, gas stations ... with the option to install the radar warning / trouble, surely Coyote. It is compatible with MirrorLink, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Finally, it incorporates all the active safety advances already seen on the 3008 and 5008 SUVs, namely collision risk alert, automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning with lane correction and fatigue warning. The cast is completed by a more sophisticated parking assistant with 360-degree vision (four cameras), Peugeot does not specify if it is able to park and unpark itself.

Speaking of vile metal, it goes on sale in September from 32,050 euros, which is a saving of almost 500 euros compared to the equivalent version that was on sale, so it comes out the customer winning, it has also improved the standard equipment.


Therefore, practically all our impressions of the previous model at the Jarama Circuit are still valid.
