Peugeot is to start selling a 197bhp version of its five-door 308 hatchback in the UK later this month.
Priced at £21,995 and called the GT THP 200 (after the engine's metric horsepower figure), the model has been built to celebrate 200 years of the Peugeot brand.
A ‘GTI’ version of the 308 was launched in May and while Peugeot said it wouldn’t be coming to the UK, the new GT THP 200 is in effect the same car.
It comes with Peugeot’s turbocharged 197bhp, 1.6-litre petrol engine, shared with the new RCZ, and sends power to the front wheels through a six-speed manual gearbox.
CO2 emissions are rated at 159g/km, while the combined fuel economy is 41mpg.
A revised suspension systems lowers the car by 10mm. The 200 THP also gets a styling upgrade over the standard 308 with a rear spoiler, twin chrome rear exhaust pipes, and ‘GT’ badges on the side and rear of the body.
