The brand new Peugeot 308 GTi has been recently rendered in a more practical SW version.
After being officially unveiled just last week, the newest addition to the compact hot hatch range, the Peugeot 308 GTi, is returning in another image, which is showing us how the model may look like in an SW body style. The image posted above is nothing more than a simple rendering but don’t act too surprised if you will see it, in the future, at a dealership nearby, considering the fact that the compact segment is doing rather well on the Old Continent, and not only.
The new Peugeot 308 GTi is weighing 1,205 kg and it is sitting 11 mm closer to the road, riding on 18-inch alloy wheels (19-inch on the beefier version), covering the 380 mm and 268 mm front to rear braking discs. The model is getting modified power steering, the possibility of turning the ESP completely off and a Torsen limited-slip differential. The exterior design has been updated and it is making the car look instantly recognizable and under its hood we can find the 1.6 liter turbocharged four-cylinder gasoline engine. This has two outputs, 250 HP (184 kW) and 270 HP (200 kW), with the peak torque standing at 330 Nm (244 lb-ft) for both of them. The FWD vehicle has a 6-speed manual transmission and it needs 6.2s to reach 100 km/h (62 mph) or 6.0s in the beefier variant. Sales will begin this fall but first deliveries are expected to start before the end of this year.
