More Powerful Peugeot 208 GTi Coming!

By raccars Published

The latest GTi from Peugeot is the 208 GTi and it features a 1.6-litre turbocharged engine with 200bhp – which was a fair chunk of power in 2006. Now though, 200bhp isn’t quite enough in such a competitive hot hatch market, and that’s why Peugeot has revealed it may be unleashing an even hotter 230bhp GTi in the future.

The news came as an exclusive from Autoblog, and if the French marque does go ahead with the plans, it’ll mean we finally have a seriously hot hatch from the Peugeot for the first time in a good twenty years.

The GTi badge has not really lived up to its reputation in recent years, but a 230bhp 208 would definitely fit the bill – especially if they keep the price down.

Would you buy one?
