Priced at $42,990, the Peugeot 308 GTi Sport retails for $3500 less than the regular 308 GTi despite gaining a fresh five-piece body-kit featuring a new front spoiler, side skirt extensions, rear bumper corner extensions, rear diffuser, and rear spoiler (Gurney flap).
That takes the 200kW 1.8-litre turbo, six-speed manual hatch’s price below that of key euro rivals including the Renault Megane RS 280 ($44,990) and Volkswagen Golf GTI ($45,490), which it out-performed in Wheels’ recent hot-hatch megatest.
The package also includes metallic paint, with most of the 20 available cars coming in black, with Artense Grey and Magnetic Blue also available.
Buyers also receive a complementary $200 driver training course hosted by Driving Dynamics. The courses are currently held in Melbourne, Adelaide and Sydney, with Queensland and Western Australian drivers to be catered for soon.
