Eye to the data: A Peugeot 3008 GTI could reach the market

Peugeot 3008 GTIn Current Engine we have had the pleasure of getting to the controls of the last two GTI of Peugeot: the Peugeot 208 GTI, and the compact 308 GTI. Two vehicles set by the branch sport Peugeot Sport who have managed to get us out smiles from ear to ear between curves, and all this achieving with a good convenience and usability in day-to-day. Now, from the French brand, we have found that we could see a new member in the family GTI, the Peugeot 3008 GTI.

The fever of the SUV seems not to be a rival of the vehicles of medium size with a high dose of sportiness. What we’ve seen in vehicles like the Nissan Juke Nismo or the latest version of the sporting crossover by Audi. Why could not try the others? It seems that Peugeot wants to launch a Peugeot 3008 GTI, but has a fear: the sales and the amortization.

Peugeot 3008 GTlion brand currently markets the Peugeot 3008 GT, which is the model that we see in the images. That is, until the moment, the variant’s most dynamic SUV medium. According to statements of Marion David, head of product, to Auto Express, if this GT version does it well (referring to sales), we will see a variant of higher level. In this way, it seems that David wants to insinuarnos that if the public asks for the GT version, the Peugeot 3008 GTI would get to the market.

if so, taking into account that the 3008 uses the same platform and shares many elements and technology with the Peugeot 308, it would not be unreasonable to think that the Peugeot 3008 GTI (if it eventually gives the green light to the project) use the same engine; that is to say, the 1.6-liter petrol with 270 hp. would Not miss either “hand” of Peugeot Sport to give this SUV sports a good setup, in which the tires are able to transmit all the power to the asphalt, and the body responds to the indications of the steering wheel without drifts and inclinations.
