At the Dubai International Motor Show, with the presence of Philippe-Jean Lafond, Middle East and Sub-Saharan Africa executive Director for PSA Group, PEUGEOT presents as a regional premiere the New PEUGEOT 308 GTi By PEUGEOT SPORT, the New 208 and 308, 508 and the crossovers 2008 and 3008 which are further outstanding assets in its continuous development on the Middle East markets.

308 GTi by PEUGEOT SPORT: the ultimate hot hatch

Since the launch of the legendary 205 GTi, PEUGEOT has sold its sportier models to more than 800,000 satisfied customers: the 309 GTi, the 405 Mi16, the 306 S16… and now the new PEUGEOT 308 GTi by PEUGEOT SPORT, a symbol of the brand's dynamism and upmarket shift.

The new "308 GTi by PEUGEOT SPORT" carries the name of the team responsible for its development.

It packs a 1.6L THP S&S engine that comes with 200 kW (270 hp). The Euro6 Stop&Start power plant caps CO2 emissions at just 139 g/km (6.0 L/100 km).

The 308 GTi 270 sets a new record for power-to-weight ratio in its segment, at just 4.46 kg per unit of horsepower, and does 0-100 kph in a mere 6.0 seconds, covering 1,000 metres from a standing start in 25.3 seconds.

A powerful GTi design

The PEUGEOT 308 is inherently sleek and clean, the PEUGEOT 308 GTi asserts a style imbued with simplicity but which is impressively effective.

The Ultimate Red and Perla Nera Black pairing seem to have been split by a surgeon's scalpel, such is the contrast between the two. Dubbed the Coupe Franche, this combination of colors ably captures the nature of the new 308 GTi by PEUGEOT SPORT: in a word, sharp.

The interior styling is perfectly in keeping with the outside and is unabashedly sporty, namely with the PEUGEOT SPORT bucket seats upholstered in leather and alcantara.

The compact steering wheel (351 x 329 mm) provides natural grip and flawless precision.

It also leaves plenty of room to see the head-up display, the instrument panel readouts with their chequered backdrops, and the GTi greeting in the center.

The large touchscreen forms a seamless part of the instrument panel with its Redline theme, adding a final touch of flair to the PEUGEOT i-Cockpit®. The natural user-friendly feel of the cockpit promotes safe, instinctive driving—crucial for a car that packs such a punch.

The kind of driving experience only PEUGEOT SPORT can provide...

Drawing on its unparalleled competition experience, PEUGEOT SPORT is a division devoted exclusively to developing the brand's most high-performance models.

PEUGEOT SPORT developed the new 308 GTi based on clear specifications: a compact, safe, incisive car with athletic allure for the ultimate in driving pleasure. The same standards permeate every aspect of the vehicle: running gear, engine, brake systems and electronics.

To fully tap the potential of the chassis, the PEUGEOT 308 GTi by PEUGEOT SPORT houses a 1.6L THP 270 S&S under the bonnet. The four-cylinder power plant delivers 169 hp per liter—the highest specific output in its segment. Yet with its Stop&Start technology and array of engineering expertise, it caps CO2 at just 139 g/km, or 6.0 L/100km, a record for the category.

Driver-adjusted chassis, power-packed engine, tailpipe tone, PEUGEOT i-Cockpit®, Driver Sport Pack, bucket seats... It's a triumphant turnout!

All of these features combine to capture the quintessential nature of PEUGEOT SPORT development.

The GTi By PEUGEOT SPORT flair also available in other models of the range
