What’s this, then? It’s the Peugeot 308 GTI 270. The same Peugeot Sport-fettled version of France’s answer to the Focus ST, Leon Cupra et al on sale for the last couple of years, but with a few updates to keep it feeling fresh. A facelift then? Technically, yes. But ‘facelift’ is a bit generous – this is more of a ‘light makeover from Trinny and Susannah’ than any sort of major plastic surgery. Absolutely diddly squat has been done to the mechanicals (either an act of supreme confidence or laziness) while the aesthetic tweaks are minor at best. There’s new headlight bulbs, a new grille, bumper with red lipstick and slightly tweaked rear lights. Is that all?
