Special GTi marks send off

Riley Riley

Peugeot is offering 20 very special 208 GTis to mark the end of the current model.

The 208 GTi Édition Définitive features mechanical and visual upgrades over the standard GTi and carries a $33,990 drive-away price.

The standard GTi is priced at $29,990 driveaway.

Dressed in Pearl White paint with contrasting Matte Black finishes, it features Peugeot Sport badging on the rear pillar.

Inside, the 208 GTi Édition Définitive has Peugeot Sport bucket seats and red ‘Peugeot Sport’-embroidered floor mats.

The 1.6-litre turbocharged petrol engine has been tuned to breath more easily and, symbolically, produces 208bhp or 153kW of power.  

It’s also been fitted with a mechanical Torsen limited-slip diff, with a bespoke suspension package that incorporates unique spring and damper rates, wider front and rear tracks and a lower overall ride height.

The 208 GTi Édition Définitive also comes with Autonomous Emergency Braking as standard — a first for any GTi model in Australia.  

Managing Director of Peugeot Australia, Anouk Poelmann, said the 208 GTi Édition Définitive celebrates Peugeot’s long performance car history and is the perfect send-off to the current 208 GTi.

“The 208 GTi Édition Définitive will become a collector’s vehicle, much like the 208 GTi 30th Anniversary and the 205 GTi model that paved the way for performance Peugeots almost 35 years ago,” she said.

“With its outstanding value as well as its mechanical, performance, safety and visual upgrades, we expect the 208 GTi Édition Définitive to be snapped up very quickly.”
