Out on the roads On the twistier roads, the New Peugeot 308 GTi by PEUGEOT SPORT shows off stunning grip and exemplary handling. However, the Attendance Allowance alone does not show eligibility for leasing cars and wheelchairs through Motability. The version produced in South America is assembled with this facelift. The engine range includes two petrol 1.6 16V 110 hp and 143 hp 2.0 16V. The trunk has a volume of 502 liters. And inside, the 308 is a huge step up for Peugeot.

There’s a strong engine line-up, especially if you’re looking for an economical diesel, although the over-soft ride and lacklustre handling don’t meet the standards of the best in class. The 308 R Hybrid sends its power to all four wheels, and has upgraded brakes front and rear. Fortunately, this new addition to the GTi family delivers on every front from the moment you first take a look at the eye-catching paintwork. Not so long ago, an everyday frugal family saloon would have been happy with that kind of economy, let alone a hot hatch like this.
There are four driving modes — Hot Lap, Track, Road, and ZEV. Hot Lap mode is designed to make the most of the car’s power, while Track only allows access to 395bhp. Well, now it’s my turn to find out, although at present I mostly appear to remain in the honeymoon period. I love, for example, that this car offers so much space on the inside without being huge on the outside. Driving enthusiasts are always keen to quote the huge success of the 205 GTi (294,514 sold, more than 60,000 of which in the UK), which only serves to illustrate the lasting popularity of the Peugeot GTi brand. There’s no hint of lag from the turbocharger, just immediate and instant progress. Making a fast car go quickly isn’t too much of a problem – making the same car liveable in day-to-day commuting is where many of the notable rivals fall down.
