2015 Peugeot 308 GT

Published at Friday, April 08th 2016, 04:10:50 AM by Leonard J. Martinez. Peugeot.

The Peugeot 308 is enjoying a great commercial success. Not for less when you consider the great plunge of the previous generation 308 which has invested so much stronger for the quality of inner realization with the layout i-Cockpit a range of engines more balanced and a much more attractive design.

The 208 GTI was already a statement of intent regarding the future of the sports variants of Peugeot. We knew this baby was not high performance rooftops and would be preceded by other racing models within the range gala. And so he preceded the RCZ R besides the 208 GTI 30 anniversary (the features now will become part of all versions in the facelift to be introduced soon in the range).

308 meanwhile met and prototypes as 308 R that would go into production. But the truth is that is positioned as a powerful and radical compact so that the existing step would be great. With the aim of supplying said step for the future reach the 308 GT variants which make several mechanical and body configurations: diesel and gasoline besides hatchback and SW. This opens up a range of interesting possibilities that will reel below.

What changed from a conventional 308?

To attract buyers and in turn leave room for a more powerful variant since Peugeot have chosen to introduce several differentiators compared to conventional 308. That means for starters a budget much more competence to offset its higher price tariff but also a series of aesthetic elements that enhance the sportiness of the whole.

The tires are 18 inches in diameter and two-tone diamond. In addition they shod with Michelin Pilot Sport 3 which give us maximum adhesion to the road. The exterior mirrors are like in other versions but are lacquered in black regardless of the exterior color chosen in the body which by the way for this variant opens a specific color called "Magnetic Blue '.

The bumpers are also specific with oversized air intakes in the front case while in the rear the distinctive touch is a diffuser in black lacquer with a tailpipe on either side. GT also find the anagrams in both the front wings tailgate and front grille.

And interior what are the changes?

Its interior also reflects many changes in various aspects. Taking back the base of the i-Cockpit the Alcantara is introduced to match the fabric upholstery with red stitching stitching which incidentally also found on the door panels floor mats and the lever gaiter changes.

Other changes to note are the fabric roof is black the aluminum pedals the GT logo that is found in the bottom of the steering wheel flattened (and whose diameter is already very small in order to facilitate watches picture viewing) further instrumentation has also been duly adapted to this variant as we contact we can observe the GT emblem reflected in it for a few seconds in welcome.

If the Alcantara is not a saint of our devotion we have the option to equip the "Club Nappa leather" package. The allocation may be supplemented by the panoramic glass roof extra for which we must pay 571.60 euros plus package 'Drive Assitance Pack' which adds emergency braking active cruise control and collision warning by 519.62 euros or a sound system of high fidelity (Denon hifi Pack) comprises 4 tweeters 1 digital amplifier Class-D 8-way and 4 woofers CosCone by 519.62 euros.

And how it behaves dynamically?

Although the Peugeot 308 GT continues to count with the same scheme McPherson suspension in front and torsion beam with trailing arms in the rear the dampers are specific to have a firmer moron ranging between 10 and 20% also the height is reduced at the front axle 7 mm and 10 mm at the rear axle.

The brake system is also specific; while maintaining the same forceps the disks are larger in diameter. On the front axle are 330 mm (hatchback and SW) while the rear axle in the case of the hatchback has 268 mm and 290 mm if we talk about the case of SW because their defense has a greater weight in the nature of its configuration.

The perception that we get after a good while back roads trying to play with him is that your traction is excellent even in tight hairpins not show glimpses of understeer responding every time the front axle to our demands. The braking system also endured way more than correct the harsh treatment that offers a mountain anyone.

Between the two engines there is a difference in weight of 120 kg for gasoline version shown lighter and naturally when playing with inertia is something left to appreciate sheepishly.

Peugeot 308 GT 180 EAT6

The diesel engine chosen by Peugeot is the 180 hp 2.0 BlueHDI that is associated exclusively with the automatic gearbox EAT6. This box is torque converter type and is made by the famous builder Aisin AW in addition to Quickshift technology. Obviously for this type of use it is a much more reasonable than the ETG case and although the EAT6 is not as quick cash as a double clutch to us has convinced us much its operation as to how Sport us It allowed to move quickly without realizing that we are being weighed down by the pace of change.

With this engine the 308 5-door performs the 0-100 km / h 8.4 seconds reaching a top speed of 220 km / h standardizing an average consumption of 4l / 100 km. If you choose the variant SW its 0-100 km / h grows to 8.6 seconds its top speed remains intact (220 km / h) and their combined consumption increased to 41l / 100 km.

Turn to sit in gasoline variant. In this case also it has only one transmission: six-speed manual. And yes being a sports car aspirations most would think that if we squeeze the maximum performance and play with the gears the option would be commendable because this engine is the only one that offers a manual gearbox.

But once we bind us to fight with the curves and change our disappointment increases. The engine responds in a unique way but all that is clouded by touch and stroke the box because it has some long runs and a somewhat imprecise touch.

In this case the 5-door variant makes the 0-100 km / h in 7.5 seconds and reaches a top speed of 235 km / h with a combined consumption of 5.6L / 100 km. For SW variant the combined consumption increased to 58l / 100 km and requires 7.6 seconds to reach 100 km / h achieving a top speed of 235 km / h.
