Of get, these GTi would keep the front-wheel-drive and have as a main rival to the Nissan Juke Nismo. Laurent Blanchet, head of product development at Peugeot, said that “the strategy of the brand is to have superior versions of GT, GT Line and GTi; and this strategy will be developed in the whole range“.

In fact, the French brand is implementing the strategy as planned. The Peugeot 2008 already we have been able to see your version GT Line and have even done a special edition GT Line by Carlos Sainz. In both vehicles is added to the optional equipment that affects mainly to the external aspect, giving it a touch more sporty. This finish can be choose with any of the engines of the range.
