Peugeot 308 GTi Confirmed: 199kW Hot Hatch On The Cards

CarAdvice can reveal that Peugeot is looking at offering the new 308 GTi with either 250 or 270PS (that’s 184kW or 199kW, respectively). The brand currently offers a 199kW tune of its 1.6-litre turbo engine in the RCZ R, and this is likely to be the same powertrain used in the potent new 308 GTi.

At a presentation from the French maker’s performance arm Peugeot Sport, a slide was shown clearly showing plans for a 308 GTi (see below), and Peugeot Sport director Bruno Famin confirmed the intentions of the company to expand the GTi line.

“We are working on the new GTi version of the 308, with a possible engine of 250-270PS,” he said.

With power figures in that range, the 308 GTi would be ripe to take aim at the Ford Focus ST (184kW) and easily outgun the Volkswagen Golf GTI (162-169kW, the latter with the Performance Pack), while using a smaller capacity engine than both of those cars.
