The mesh of the grille has a 3D chequered motif, with chromed inserts in the gloss black grille. The whole is subtly enhanced by the touches of chrome on the foglamp trim surrounds, the grille upper trim and the door mirrors.

Technical Features

Peugeot 208 GTi

The new 208 GTi is powered by a 1.6 THP 200bhp gasoline engine coupled with a six-speed manual gearbox.

This performance benefits from the improvement achieved lightening the weight of the vehicle, which is just 1,160 kg. The 0-100 km/h sprint is expected to take less than 7 seconds.
