Peugeot 208 GT-line 2015
You know how chocolate brands bring a new type and it may be a bit more expensive than old school fruit and nuts but in the end you buy it because it’s a bit more special? Car companies have done just that, and Peugeot added a new flavor to its fruit and nuts – 208 GT-Line.
Combined with Allure specifications and the 208 208 GTi hardcore in the 208-series 208 GT-Line sports-looking lineup, the starting price is $ 27,490. It seems like a lot to ask, especially with rivals like the excellent Ford Sport Fiesta Sport for $ 22,525.
The 208 GT-Line spent a week with us and did our best to convince us that a small, expensive car was needed to say French cars on the road. Did it win us over?
It is very beautiful, there is no doubt about it. From the headlight surrounds, opaque contours, muscular wheel arches and the wide grille to the cabin, where everything you can see and touch has a high-quality feel like a red leather steering wheel and seats. sport.
There are elements of the 208 GT-Line despite the polarized comments in the office, such as the small mounted low steering wheel. Some people love the driving position, but others think it’s awkward and adjust the wheels higher just to obscure speed.
Spacious and spacious for the rear seat space, the 208 GT-Line is a sporty hatch for those who want the back door, but still want the tough look of the GTi.

Differentiating the GT from the Allure is 17-inch alloys, sports bucket seats, black interior trim and piano gloss, red stripe seat belts, leather and chrome steering wheel, sports grille with red Peugeot letters, wing mirrors black, chrome exhaust tips – and if that doesn’t give away there will be GT-Line badges.
Back to town
The 208 GT-Line is perfect for city life, where it can launch like a mouse through traffic and squeeze into small car space. It is easy to control, even if the driving position feels a bit wrong and the visibility out front is excellent – although rear visibility is not great through the small rear window. There are front and rear parking sensors but if you want a reversing camera then it’s the $ 300 option.
Did we mention it park, though? Yes, it makes the parallel park sometimes cause panic and the old 90 degree park easily.
Wipers are the best thing ever since someone thinks of a discontinuous wiper. They will detect the start of a small downpour at the slightest sprinkle and that means you have won to scramble for the wipers when it starts to push down.

Also automatic is headlights – we’ve become familiar with them today, but it’s a great safety function that not only makes life easier but also makes it safer by turning on yourself in tunnels. and at sunset to let others know you’re there.
Having a smooth communication unit and connecting quickly and intuitively is a great thing – the 208 GT-Line Line display is huge and finding your way is simple. Voice control is also good.
On the road
On the freeway, the ride is smooth, but throwing a jagged Sydney road onto 208 GT-Line and drivers will feel grooves and bumps due to low profile tires.
It’s a good thing then the bucket seats are comfortable and supportive – great for long-distance driving.
That motive can really be the one who sealed the deal if you’re loud and wrong – it’s good
New to the 208 is a 3-cylinder engine, 1.2 liter capacity, producing 81kW and 205Nm. That engine can really be the one who sealed the deal if you’re loud and wrong – it’s great, with plenty of power and impressive acceleration. It’s also super effective – Peugeot claims it drinks 4.3L / 100km when paired with the amazing new six-speed auto but our testing shows it is like 6.2L / 100km – the truth being told that they I drove it like we stole it or like someone lent us with a full tank.
208 GT-Line is a fun and rewarding car to drive, it’s very beautiful, its technology is intuitive and the excellent three-cylinder engine and fast six-speed automatic are a perfect match. The problem is that if you want GT-Line because it’s more sporty, we can suggest you increase to 208 GTi – it’s a more powerful and unique French monster from Peugeot that only a few more.
What does it get
The 208 GT-Line comes with a 7-inch display, satnav, front and rear parking sensors, automatic parking, automatic headlights, 17-inch alloys and full-size spare wheels.
What it did not
It has a well-equipped car but a reversing camera is a $ 300 option.
