Peugeot 208 GTi (2014)

Peugeot 208 Gti

5 Pros

  1. Decent enough handling and a fast enough engine
  2. Nice interior with a sizable boot
  3. Quite fuel efficient (although it will prob need the most expensive petrol) and it should get a 5 out of 5 star safety rating
  4. European badge
  5. Non-objectionable exterior and about the same cost as it competitors (although much cheaper than a Mini)

5 Cons

  1. Non-objectionable exterior may read as boring
  2. Ridiculously small steering wheel that obscures the instruments..
  3. Not as much fun as other hot hatches such as the Focus ST, Megane RS265, Vokswagen Golf GTi, Mini Cooper S, Polo GTi, Fabia RS or Toyota 86 (although many of these are in slightly different categories)
  4. Questionable resale value (this product is niche) and the upcoming Renault Clio RS and Ford Fiesta ST have a good chance of being better
  5. The engine note is not quite raspy enough

Concluding personality type: Spicy food from a hospital: Better than normal, but it is not going to knock your socks off
