Description

The second generation Peugeot 308 is a C-Segment car launched in 2013 as a replacement for the first generation 308. The warm hatch version of the model was the Peugeot 308 II GT, available with two different engines – the 1.6 THP 205 and the 2.0 BlueHDi 180.

The Peugeot 308 II GT 1.6 THP was fitted with a twin scroll turbocharged 1,598 cc four-cylinder engine with direct fuel injection, variable valve lift and variable valve timing, producing 205 hp (181 kw) of power and 285 Nm of torque. The engine was combined with a 6-speed manual gearbox that allowed the car to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 7,5 seconds and reach a top speed of 235 km/h (146 mph).

The GT version featured sportier setup for the suspension that was stiffened by 10-20% and lowered by 7mm at the front and 10mm at the rear (pseudo MacPherson at the front, deformable beam at the rear), variable electric power steering, switchable ESP, Michelin Pilot Sport 3 tyres and an improved braking system (including a Bosch 9CE central unit, 330mm ventilated discs at the front and 268 mm discs at the rear).

Visually the 308 II GT is distinguished by redesigned bumpers, a new grille, LED headlights and tailights, new indicators placed above the air vents, tinted windows, black mirror caps, wider side sills, 18 inch diamond wheels, rear diffuser and twin tail pipes. Inside, the sports interior featured different upholstery (TEP/Alcantara or Club Nappa leather) with red stitching, aluminium pedals, stainless steel sill finish, compact steering wheel with perforated leather trim and GT badge as well as chequered flag motif background for the instrument cluster.

In 2017 the car received a facelift that included updated bumpers with larger intakes and new rim design.
