Opel Kadett GSi 16v VS Peugeot 309 GTI 16

In this rivalry, we compare two C-Segment hot hatches from late ’80s – the Opel Kadett GSi 16v and the Peugeot 309 GTI 16. Today those carmakers are under the same umbrella (PSA Group) but back then they were direct rivals. Both of the hot hatches from Opel and Peugeot were fitted with naturally aspirated engines and featured a more aggressive bodykit and larger rims.

So lets start with a design battle before we move on to their specifications.
