The exterior of the GTi is characterized by the new spoiler, the gloss black rear skirt, the exhaust with its trapezoid chromed double tailpipe.
The chromed trim strip decorates the window lower edge culminating in a signature accent that pays tribute to the illustrious 205 GTi.
The quarter panel trim bears the GTi logo, in bright chrome accentuated in red highlights.
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.
Fitted with 205/45 tires, the 17″ diamond Carbon wheels, with Storm paint and matt varnish, house 302mm ventilated discs at the front and 249mm at the rear.
The interior has a color scheme that combines red, black and satin chrome, with red GTi overstitching.
The seats are upholstered in full grain Club Nappa leather and Caro Weave cloth, made dynamic by a red line.
The dashboard, with a taut black polyurethane PVC covering with red overstitching, has a decoration of red graduating to black, matching the door crossbars.
The vehicle performance information is provided via the high-mounted instrument panel.
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.
