GT version of Peugeot 308 GT could see SA

10.09.2014

THE Peugeot 308 is due here early in 2015. However, we may also see sports versions of this acclaimed hatch later on in the year, in the form of the 308 GT.

Sportier styling

The GT is immediately recognisable with its more dynamic front end; the lion in the grille for instance features three horizontal blades on either side of the emblem while there are LED lights and new indicators. There are also black side mirrors, tinted windows, 18-inch diamond wheels with Michelin Pilot Sport 3 tyres.  At the rear we see a black diffuser, twin tail pipes and the GT signature integrated into the grille, tailgate and the front-wheel panels.

Racier interior

Inside, the roof lining and upper window pillars are finished in an anthracite colour, along with red stitching, while the rest of the upholstery is finished in Alcantara as standard. Red stitching is also found on the dashboard, door panels, gear lever gaiter and the floor mats, while aluminium foot pedals and stainless steel sills finish off the sportier interior.

Under the hood

There is the option of either a petrol or diesel engine. The former is the 1.6-litre THP 205 motor with 150kW/285Nm making it good for a 0-100km/h dash of 7.5 seconds and claimed fuel consumption of 5.6 litres/100km with the six-speed manual transmission. The latter oil burner has 132kW/400Nm on tap, which will allow for swift in-gear acceleration and a low consumption figure of 4.0 litres/100km with the six-speed automatic gearbox.
