Back in Peugeot revealed their 308 and slapped a #8216;GTI#8217; badge on its before selling it across Europe. Here in the UK we got the same car but it was a #8216;GT#8217; instead. It may seem an odd move but that missing says a lot more about the 308 GT you might think.

The Peugeot 308 GT THP 200 . to give it it#8217;s title, is the quickest 308 to date. by the same 200bhp 1.6-litre engine as the stylish RCZ it will hit in 7.5 seconds and flat out it can cover 147 in an hour. That#8217;s none too but these days anything over seven seconds to 60mph starts to look a bit

That#8217;s why the GT badge makes so sense. Bringing the 308 to the hot-hatch-crazy UK badged up as a GTI would have akin to painting a big bullseye on it and the motoring press to take That#8217;s before you consider the memories of the 306 GTI-6, the legendary 90s hot that left an enormous of shoes for future GTIs to

308 GT features discrete rear and grey wheels.


The 308 GT is only available as a five-door with none of the coupe-esque that its rivals indulge in. a discrete rear spoiler it shout about its performance and the standard black 18-inch wheels and LED running lights mark the GT out as the model. Heck, there even any GT badges to give the away. If you like your hot to boast about their then you may be disappointed by the 308#8242;s looks.

On the other hand, it#8217;s for catching other drivers

Inside you#8217;re treated to and supportive half-leather seats, dual-zone cruise control, speed parking sensors, auto-folding auto headlights and wipers, and a stereo with USB and MP3 compatibility, all as The optional panoramic sunroof with its electrically sliding lends the cabin a bright and feel and, even the glass doesn#8217;t open, it does lift the ambience

Chrome highlights contrast gloss black panels on the with easy-to-read white in the instrument cluster. It#8217;s a the 308 can#8217;t inherit the same LED displays as seen in the 208 as the red-on-black LCD are starting to look a bit dated, and of the plastics on show fall the standards of some rivals.

Generous specification on the 308 GT includes USB and MP3 stereo

Rear accommodation is with plenty of room for child seats and decent leg for … passengers. That leg isn#8217;t at the cost of boot either, with a decent 430 of space to fill (1398 if you the rear seats).


The engine shares the same for life as it does in the RCZ and comes the same snappy six-speed gearbox. It#8217;s a great that make the 308 feel than the figures suggest, off by a sporty  exhaust note. The chamber tucked away the exhaust system adds a and character to the high revving and, while you know the you#8217;re enjoying in the cabin quite the real thing, difficult not to enjoy it.

At first you may think the 308 GT is a bit too soft. The is very supple and both and passengers benefit from a ride that does a job of masking imperfections in the road. might lead you to think the GT will be all soft and woolly the pace picks up but once you to make rapid progress you that the 308 can easily it.

It might not reward keen like a Renaultsport Megane but it is a lot easier to live with you#8217;re not on maximum … your favourite road. The uses a variable-assistance rack and ultimate feel but you can still the 308#8242;s nose right you want it in a corner.

Lack of GT reinforces the understated approach
