A small hatchback that is extremely quick, it is always important to have breaks that are equally good. You just can’t put high performance engine with ordinary brakes.  Well if you own the latest Peugeot 208 GTi, you do not have to worry about all that since the vehicle comes with 323 mm Brembo disc brakes at the front, helping the car stop instantly when you hit the brakes. In the rear wheels, however, the company has kept the same brakes, simply because most of the work is done by the front brakes and there is lesser amount of stress on the rear ones.

Take the latest Peugeot 208 GTi on the track and you are going to fall in love with how well it grips on the road. The vehicle comes with Michelin Pilots on 18-inch alloy wheels and lowered suspension that make ensure driver’s control at al times.

Inside the cabin, the drivers get race seats, or you could say, partial race seats that provide support. However, it is still not trusted on the road, so we cant really say exactly how it is going to turn out when the real test comes.  The most prominent feature of the 2015 Peugeot 208 GTI and is the black and red color, reminding us of the very first Peugeot 205 GTi that came out in 1984. This time, though, there is a vertical split on the body instead of the horizontal.

According to the manufacturers, the paint job, on the latest 208 GTi, took a lot longer than usual, 17 hours to be exact. For those who aren’t too psyched about getting the two-color GTi, they can get the plain version. However, you certainly wouldn’t want to miss such a fancy looking vehicle. Without a doubt, it stands out on the road.

As mentioned above, the vehicle can produce up to 205 HP and the torque goes up to 221 lb ft.  The vehicle only takes about 6.5 seconds to go from 0 to 60 mph, which is pretty impressive.
