Review Summary
The exciting, economical and excellent-to-drive Peugeot 208 GTi is a return to hot-hatchback form for Peugeot.

Review Summary
It’s certainly not a hardcore hot-hatch in the mould of some of its more focused rivals, but in reality is all the better for it. Supple suspension, a comfortable cabin and a refined engine makes for an impressive package.

Review Summary
That the starting point for the 208 GTi is a capable and fun to drive supermini is ideal, and the addition of extra power, sharpened handling and jazzed-up looks complete the hot hatch package.

Review Summary
This is, as it was meant to be, a congenial little hot hatch; easily bearable around town, usable on a commute and just enough of a giggle when the whim or right occasion arises.

Review Summary
This car is, without doubt, Peugeot’s best GTi offering in a while, providing an excellent hot-hatch package. It’s fast in a straight line, very agile through the corners and it has that crucial fun factor which all hot hatch enthusiasts look for. At the same time the ride is smooth and more comfortable than its direct rivals.

Review Summary
Peugeot has at last rediscovered some hot hatch form. Not the most startling small fast hatch, but a good effort.
