In the GT version, the Peugeot 308 shows its meaner side. The engine suspension, interior and equipment features are all tailored to assertive drivers -- without any sacrifice of comfort.
The 308 GT comes with two different engines. There's a two-liter diesel with133 kilowatts and six-speed automatic transmission. Alternatively: a more powerful 1-point-6 liter gasoline unit with a six-speed manual transmission sporting 151 kilowatts of output. We'll check out the gasoline version.
The engine has plenty of power, at 1.750 r-p-m already delivering a maximum torque of 285 newton-meters.
Compared to the regular 308, the GT chassis is 10 millimeters lower. And it features sportier shock absorbers.
The interior of the GT is based on the premium-grade features of the "Allure" line. The instruments are lined with trim, and the most important data shows up on a small, central display. The larger monitor in the center console provides even more information, and can be used to change various settings.
Red stitching on the upholstery and the seats are a stylish allusion to the car's sporty qualities.
In the gasoline-powered sedan version, the GT costs just under 30-thousand in Germany. If you prefer automatic, you'll have to opt for the diesel - and shell out another 2-thousand euros.
