UK: Peugeot 208 GTI to start at GBP18,895 image

The French based automaker Peugeot has recently announced its plans to introduce the 208 GTI in the United Kingdom this March, when the model will be priced from 18,895 pounds.

After it was officially presented to the public almost a year ago, the Peugeot 208 GTI is now getting closer to its future customers in the United Kingdom, with the French based automaker announcing its plans to launch it over there this March. According to the car manufacturer, the Peugeot 208 GTI will be priced from 18,895 GBP in the UK, which means that the model will be more expensive than its main rivals, like the Ford Fiesta ST, which is priced at 16,995 GBP.

The Peugeot 208 GTI will get standard items such as the parking sensors, the digital radio, the LED lights and the 17-inch alloy wheels, amongst others. The model will be powered by a 1.6 liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine, which will produce a total output of 100 BHP and it will have a peak torque of 203 lb-ft. This will allow the hot hatch to accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in just 6.8 seconds and emit 139 g/km CO2. Additional details on the model are limited for the moment and will be announced close to its debut.
