Coming in 10th for the Auto Express “Best Car Manufacturers/Driver Power 2015” list, Peugeot add another notch to their belt with the brand new “308 GTI” for 2015. The world-famous car manufacturer offer us their latest sporty version of their popular classic hatchback. After receiving acclaim for a risky but great “RCZ”, and the widespread purchase of the original “308”, many would suggest they hit the nail on the head this time round. With Top Gear labelling the original car “a job well done”, to build on this victory they bring you a sporty modernised updated version you can really show off to your friends.
In close comparison to the widely known Volkswagen Golf, the 2015 “308 GTI” almost matches it par for par. Many are already debating whether the car has much power or not, as it may look fantastic externally but lacks in internal quality in regards to the engine. Though only time will tell, as the specs do show that it is a great everyday car which will get you from A to B and in style. It looks a lot different from any other Peugeot out there, showing growth in the company as they make an effort to meet the sporty aesthetic people constantly crave.
The car will be available in two different horsepower options, one with 247 and the other with 267. Both have a 1.6 petrol turbo engine that roughly go to 0-60 in 6 seconds, or to be precise, 6.2 seconds for the one with 247 bhp. Also, both cars are limited to 155mph and are priced from £26, 555.
