The newest French hot hatch, the Peugeot 208 GTI, has been recently launched in the United Kingdom, where the model can be ordered from 18,895 GBP.

After seeing it back in September 2012, during the Paris Motor Show, the Peugeot 208 GTI is now entering our news once again, this time with the French based automaker announcing its official price list in the United Kingdom. According to the car manufacturer, the brand new Peugeot 208 GTI can be yours from 18,895 GBP for the base entry-level three-door model. This means that the 208 GTI is more expensive than the MINI Cooper S, which can be bought from 18,180 GBP.

Standard equipment found on the Peugeot 208 GTI includes rear parking sensors, a DAB radio, LED daytime running lights, 17-inch alloy wheels and more. The new French hot hatch has lost 165 kg (363 pounds) compared to the regular version of the 208 and it’s powered by a 1.6 liter turbocharged engine, which is producing a total output of 197 HP, with a peak torque of 203 lb-ft. The unit is mated to a six-speed manual transmission which is helping the model accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in less than 7 seconds.
