2013 Peugeot 208 GTi

2013 Peugeot 208 GTi

Almost two months after the launch of the new Peugeot 208, Peugeot has introduced the three-door 208 GTi, its so called supermini.

The Peugeot 208 GTi comes equipped with a 1.6 Litre petrol engine which develops 147kW and 275Nm and enables it to sprint from zero to 100km/h in less than 7 seconds (claimed). The 1.6 litre petrol engine is coupled to a manual gearbox with six, close ratio gears, which probably indicate that the engine will love working out at the higher engine rev range. Peugeot claims the 208 GTi emits an appealing engine sounds that carries right through the speed range.

The Peugeot 208 GTi benefits from a widened track, 10mm at front and 20mm at the rear, which give it a very characteristic posture. Other significant changes to the bodywork include changes to the body sill and roof spoiler.

The 17” matt diamond carbon rims shod with 205/45 tyres, the 17″ diamond Carbon wheels, house 302mm ventilated discs at the front and 249mm at the rear, leading to a relatively snug fit between the wheels and the wheel arches.

At the front, the 3D sport chequered flag mesh gloss black grille with chrome inserts gives the 208 GTi an element of dynamism of which is further accentuated by the integrated front headlights which houses the main beam halogen headlamps, indicators and running day lights.

On the side the 208 GTI is embellished by a chromed trim strip running on the lower edge of the window that culminates in a signature accent at the rear quarter panel that bears the GTi logo and that pays homage to the illustrious 205 GTi.

At the rear of the 208 GTi the main highlights are the gloss black rear skirt and the trapezoidal chromed double tailpipe.

The exterior styling is echoed on the interior by the use of carefully designed components that make the 208 GTi unique. Some of which include the aluminium door sill embossed with the Peugeot name, and styling changes which combine red, black and satin chrome and red GTi overstitching throughout.
