Little angel or little devil?
200 hp! Is the Peugeot 208 GTi a tip as a used one, or does the bad awakening come?
Used Peugeot 208 GTi 200 THP
The sound matches the lamb-like appearance
The 1.6-series Turbo already presses under 2000 tours. The 208 PS version delivers more torque, but only pushes later.
Not far from the dealer, Toyota Dello in Ahrensburg (near Hamburg), there are winding country roads where we let the 270 Newton meter 1.6 a bit off the leash. The sound fits the pious lamb appearance, acoustic tamper is alien to the turbo four-cylinder. No complaints from our side about it, instead recognition that the engine already delivers decent thrust below 2000 revs and does not appear to be constricted even at speeds beyond the 6000 mark. The 208 GTi is always shifted manually. Working on the gear lever, like the steering, is not an ultra-precise matter. But the gears slide in well from the first to the sixth. All in all, driving feels like a well-rounded thing. What is also due to the chassis, which we would not have assumed excessive hardness, it would have been installed in the 68 with 68 hp.

The devil is revealed in the GTi by Peugeot Sport
Conclusion by Stefan Novitski: The 208 GTi looks inconspicuous and doesn’t overdo it with its sportiness. The powerful engine and the fun driving behavior ensure long-lasting enthusiasm. Despite the high new price, the processing is only mediocre. Judgment: 3.5 out of five points.
