The 2014 208 GTi is a contemporary sports car that offers precise, controlled steering and rigid suspension for a safe and enhanced driving experience. It comes with 204/45 tires and 17-inch diamond Carbon wheels that enable controlled braking.
The 1.6 liter THP petrol engine gives you 200 horsepower with a maximum torque of 204 lb ft. The car is lightweight and capable of the highest level acceleration and in-gear re-acceleration.
This three-door model has a striking appearance with its widened front and rear track, arch-hugging wheels, body sills, and wing extensions. The front light signature displays new halogen headlamps and the gloss black grille features bright chrome inserts showing off a 3D checkered motif.
Bright chrome touches are added around the fog lamps, upper trim of the grille and door mirrors. The rear comes with a chromed trim strip with a signature accent on the lower edge of the window, bright chrome GTi logo on the quarter panel trim, and a unique trapezoid chrome double tailpipe.
All 208 GTi models carry the red color theme on the lower portion of the grille bead and tailgate, the Peugeot accent lettering prominently displayed. Overall, the new GTi simultaneously exudes a sporty and sophisticated look.
The passenger compartment is pleasant and refined. The color scheme incorporates black and satin chrome with red highlights throughout, mainly in the form of red GTi overstitching.
The instrument panel on the dashboard features a characteristic light signature, the dials are surrounded with LED-backlit satin chrome studs and the needles operate on a brushed aluminum background.
All of the interior features have been designed compliment every aspect of the inside, from the dashboard to the steering wheel insert to the seat belts and even the floor mat. The interior has a refined, technological aspect to it which is evident even on the aluminum pedal bracket and footrest.
