A PO­TENT PAIR FROM PEU­GEOT

TWO NEW PER­FOR­MANCE GTS DUE SOON

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Drive Way -

PEU­GEOT is about to pop the cork on a pair of po­tent new per­form­ers in the next month or two.

A GT model will be in the re­freshed 508 range and join­ing it will be a 308 GT.

The 508 GT will fea­ture a range of per­for­mance and visual up­grades, in­clud­ing a 2.2-litre turbo-diesel drive- train de­vel­op­ing 150kW and 450Nm, dou­ble-wish­bone front sus­pen­sion, 19-inch al­loys, GT badg­ing, and Bixenon di­rec­tional head­lights.

The all-new 308 GT will have the choice of two en­gines: 150kW/285Nm 1.6litre turbo-charged petrol, or a 131kW/400Nm 2.0-litre turbo-diesel.

Both come with firmer and more re­spon­sive power steer­ing, faster re­act­ing ac­cel­er­a­tor and six-speed trans­mis­sion and an am­pli­fied and sportier en­gine note.

The red-lit in­stru­ment panel will show the lev­els of power and torque be­ing de­liv­ered, turbo boost pres­sure, and other data.
