Introducing the flagship of the 308 range, the new Peugeot 308 GT. Through an assertive sports style and striking, dynamic performance, the 308 GT delivers an exhilarating driving experience underpinned by absolute quality.
The new 308 GT will attract admiring glances wherever it goes. A number of exclusive design features are immediately apparent to differentiate the 308 GT. At the front, the Peugeot lion badge is proudly positioned in the grille and the exclusive direction indicators, positioned just above the GT's air intakes have an LED lighting signature. At the side, discreet side skirts on the lowered body frame lend a broader presence, alongside stunning 18" 'diamant' alloy wheels. And thanks to its high-gloss black diffusor surrounding twin exhaust pipes, the new 308 GT is every bit as eye-catching at the rear.
Peugeot's engineering excellence has ensured the new 308 GT has an exceptional power-to-weight ratio, which means it maximises its dynamic performance, whilst ensuring the driver is in full control at all times. Meanwhile, state-of-the-art chassis and suspension design deliver an intense level of enjoyment. The new 308 GT offers a choice of two new and exclusive high-performance engines; the 151kW e-THP turbo petrol engine or the 133kW BlueHDi turbo diesel engine. Both engines include Stop & Start technology and comply with current Euro 6 emission standards.
Once behind the wheel, a further boost to driving enjoyment comes in the form of the Driver Sport Pack. Activated by a button on the centre console, this feature enhances further the sports experience with digitally amplified engine note, a red accented instrument panel with visual display of power and torque, turbo pressure and acceleration. Sharper power steering, accelerator pedal responses and improved responses from the automatic gearbox and steering wheel paddles on the GT 133kW BlueHDi.
Climb into the cabin and become one with new 308 GT. A head-up instrument panel, 9.7" touch screen and compact, perforated leather steering wheel, complete with GT badge, are all part of Peugeot's i-Cockpit. You'll also be struck by an impressive, top-quality cabin that wears its sporting heritage with pride. The new 308 GT also features aluminium pedals, stainless steel door sills and Anthracite-coloured roof headliner and trim parts. The red accents convey sporty style, with floor mats adding a final touch of GT flair. Each detail has been carefully crafted and finished, enhancing and enriching your driving experience.
The Peugeot 308 was crowned with the prestigious title of 2014 "European Car of the Year", awarded by a jury of 58 senior European motoring journalists representing 22 European countries. The 2014 "European Car of the Year" title represents the most prestigious recognition for the 308, which embodies the brand’s values of excellence, in terms of its design, elegant and dynamic, efficient concept based on an advanced approach to weight reduction, driving experience with its innovative instruments and controls (the PEUGEOT i-Cockpit) playing a part and quality of the highest level.
The new 308 GT is an exemplary fusion of design and dynamic performance, offering a superb level of finished quality. Inside and out, each element is fine-tuned to perfection. It's durable too, with the 308 subjected to a significant amount of durability testing in its development phase. In addition to 4 million kilometres of test driving, the 308 underwent 15,000 hours of endurance testing. The air conditioning was tested for 250,000 cycles, the touchscreen had around 4.3 million press actions without failure and there are 1,800 quality controls in factory final acceptance. That's the meaning of quality.
