Peugeot 308 Gti by Peugeot Sport

Peugeot 308 Gti by Peugeot Sport


Much like the younger 208 sibling, this 308 GTi has a great back catalogue of hot hatch greats to call upon, the best of which being the legendary 306 GTI-6 from 1996. That was a lightweight, fast hatch with 167bhp and has the quirky characteristic of lifting the inside rear wheel when cornering. It also had a penchant for lift-off oversteer as many an unexpecting new owner found out. But now it’s 2018 and though it may not be lightweight (thank modern crash regulations and consumers’ insistence on luxuries in cars) the new 308 GTi is a plucky underdog in the modern hot hatch race dominated by the Golf GTi and now the Hyundai i30N. Power comes from a downsized 1.6 litre turbo four cylinder with 266bhp so it’s certainly quick as the 6.0 second 0-62mph dash proves. But as with all Peugeot Sport cars it’s the handling that impresses most, delicate and precise like only a French hatch can be.
