Peugeot 208 GTi for the price of a 205.

Now I don't often report on marketing campaigns or indeed brand new car deals but today I'll make an exception thanks to Peugeot and their rather generous offer, I also love a hot hatch. To mark the run out of the last current 208 GTi's Peugeot Australia are offering the final 30 at the same price as their 80's 205 GTi predecessors; $29,500. That means a brand new car for the price of one which pre-dates a heap of inflation and two economic downturns.
Peugeot 208 GTi meets its grand daddy the 205 GTi

It doesn't take a genius to work out what sort of deal you'd be getting if you got your hands on one of the 30 cars. The 208 offers far more in terms of driver comfort, connectivity and ultimately performance than the original 205 GTi did at that price. However the jury's still out on whether the 208 is quite as fun as it's back to basics grand daddy down a twisty back road.

Decidedly more futuristic 

The last 30 bargain basement 208 GTi's score; a 7 inch touch screen, cruise control, dual zone climate control, bluetooth and aux connectivity, follow me home lights, cornering fog lights and day time running lights to name but a few of the extra's. Things that in 1985 would have been the stuff of future car fantasy.

Get one while you can

The offer on the last 30 208 GTi's runs until the 21st October or while stocks last, paving the way for an all new 208 GTi in 2016. As for the original 205 I've not done a car of the week feature on it yet, but I feel one is long overdue.
