What’s this weird two-tone thing? It’s the Peugeot 208 GTI by Peugeot Sport. It’s a long and slightly clumsy name for a car that is neither of those things. Without wishing to spoil the ending, you’re looking at one of the most fun hot hatchbacks on sale. And don’t worry, you can have it in normal colours, too. Why so good? There’s lots of good stuff underneath to transform its behaviour compared to the (still fun) standard 208 GTI. Things like a mechanical limited-slip differential on the front axle, and front wheels displaying some proper camber to them. The track widths are broader, and the Peugeot Sport rides 10mm lower than standard, too. Those are nerdy things, we admit. But nerdy things that make sure this is a car that’s notably more focused than a Mini Cooper S or even a Ford Fiesta ST, the ST200 version of which is probably the toughest foe for the £22,000 Peugeot.
