Peugeot 208 GTI review

£16,065 - £34,290
Published: 13 Jan 2015


What is it like on the inside?

The first thing that’ll strike you upon stepping into the GTI’s cabin is the steering wheel. It’s very small. This is very good as it makes the whole car feel compact, even if the impression is slightly undone by the chunkily thick rim, which also does a bang tidy job of blocking your view of the dials.

Other touch points aren’t quite so impressive. The big-headed gearknob has a numb six-speed shift, and the pedals aren’t as zingily responsive as we’d like. Our biggest criticism, though, is the insufferably complex central control screen. Looks like cutting-edge tech. Isn’t. That aside it’s comfortable and practical, even if the materials aren’t exactly top drawer.
