Rumours about the upcoming 2015 Peugeot 308 GTi have been confimed. So far the car has been caught testing several times and has appeared in spy photos.
Speculation suggested the model will use a 1.6-liter THP that produces approximately 200 HP (147 kW). Value was higher than 155 HP (114 kW) in the range-topping 308 and lower than the 274 HP (201 kW) in the 308 R.
Recently at a presentation of the company’s performance arm Peugeot Sport, information regarding power for the 2015 308 have been made public through a slide.
Now everything is official since the Peugeot Sport director Bruno Famin has confirmed that the 308 GTi will have either 250 HP (184 kW) or 270 HP (199 kW).
As far as the exterior goes the 2015 Peugeot 308 is easy to recognize, since big canges haven’t been made. However the car will have a new front bumper with new air intakes, a dual exhaust system and a reduced ride height.
2015 Peugeot 308 GTi might be launched at one of next year’s major autor shows. The wagon version of the new car might also be available.
