Peugeot introduces limited-run 308 GT hatch

Special-edition Peugeot 308 GT arrives in local showrooms from $39,990 plus ORC

13 Aug 2019

PEUGEOT has expanded its 308 small hatchback range with the addition of the GT warm hatch, which is now available in a limited run of just 140 units in Australia.


Priced at $39,990 plus on-roads, the 308 GT undercuts the GTi hot hatch by $6000, however its 1.6-litre turbo-petrol engine gives up 35kW and 45Nm over its hi-po sibling, with outputs of 165kW at 5500rpm and 285Nm at 1750rpm.


To help retain the sporty characteristics of the full-fat GTi, the GT has been enhanced with an amplified engine note, as well as a more responsive transmission, firmer power steering and a sharper throttle.


For the first time on a Peugeot in Australia, the 308 GT is mated to an eight-speed Aisin automatic transmission. It also features a petrol particulate filter.


Combined with idle-stop technology, the GT achieves a combined fuel consumption figure of 6.0 litres per 100km, while emitting 135 grams of CO2 per km.


Stopping power is helped by enhanced 330mm front/268mm rear disc brakes with floating callipers, while the GT features a more menacing stance than regular 308 models with a ride height that has been reduced by 7mm front and 10mm rear, to go with stiffer spring and damper rates.


‘GT’ badging and 18-inch alloys wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport 3 rubber enhance the look of the GT, which is available in standard Hurricane Grey, and optional Magnetic Blue, Nera Black and Platinum Grey ($590) as well as Pearl White and Ultimate Red ($1050).


Inside, the GT is highlighted by unique interior trim and steering wheel, red instrumentation in Sport mode, and read-outs of the car’s ECU including power and torque delivery, boost pressure and longitudinal and transverse acceleration projected on the instrument cluster.


In addition to the exclusive equipment, standard kit in the 308 GT includes chrome grille bars, foglights and window surrounds; a dual-exit exhaust system, LED headlights, a rear diffuser, a 9.7-inch touchscreen infotainment system, a reversing camera, front and rear parking sensors, a USB port, rear privacy glass, electric lumbar support and massaging for front occupants, an electric park brake, keyless entry and push-button start, and ambient interior lighting.


On the safety front, the 308 GT comes equipped with autonomous emergency braking, adaptive cruise control with stop and go functionality, blind-spot monitoring, lane departure warning, emergency collision alert, emergency collision braking, park assist, six airbags and tyre pressure monitoring.


Peugeot Australia managing director Ben Farlow said the 308 GT would make a great blend of performance and practicality for prospective owners.


“The 308 GT will give us the ability to offer a vehicle that leverages Peugeot Sport’s experience while still maintaining the comfort and practical features of a vehicle that is driven daily,” he said.


“With its engaging new drivetrain, sporty styling and limited availability, we are certain the new Peugeot 308 GT will be a hit with customers looking for a sports hatch.


“The arrival of 308 GT also kicks-off a period of new product arrivals for Peugeot, with the all-new 508 Fastback and Sportsback following close on the 308 GT’s heels.”


Sales of 308 have climbed 32.4 per cent in the first seven months of 2019, from 185 to 245 units, thanks in part to the limited-run GTi Sport released in February.


Nevertheless, the 308 is well behind the small-car segment’s leaders, including the Toyota Corolla (18,263), Mazda3 (17,109) and Hyundai i30 (16,628).
