It doesn’t take long to appreciate the sharp chassis and responsive steering of the latest hot hatch to wear Peugeot’s famed GTi badge. 

With a 266bhp 1.6-litre turbo, the 308 GTi could potentially feel a little strained, yet its motor is impressive across the rev range. It’s coupled with a sophisticated chassis that features a Torsen limited-slip diff and Michelin Super Sport tyres. The car never feels out of its depth, and this latest GTi is every inch the pure Peugeot hot hatch.
