Peugeot Australia has launched the 208 GTi Édition Définitive to mark the end of current 208 GTi production.
Priced at $33,990 drive-away, only 20 units will be on offer featuring a raft of mechanical and visual upgrades over the standard GTi.
Bespoke styling starts with Pearl White paint and contrasting Matte Black finishes capped-off with exterior Peugeot Sport badging on the C-pillar. On the inside, the 208 GTi Édition Définitive features Peugeot Sport bucket seats and red ‘Peugeot Sport’-embroidered floor mats.
Under its contrasting Pearl White and Matte Black finish is a bespoke suspension package featuring unique spring and damper rates, wider front and rear tracks and a lower overall ride height.
Peugeot says the 208 GTi Édition Définitive’s greater handling prowess is further enhanced by the adoption of a mechanical Torsen limited-slip differential.
A Euro 6 emissions-compliant, 1.6-litre THP petrol engine has been tuned to breath easier and symbolically, produces 208bhp (153kW).
The 208 GTi Édition Définitive also features Autonomous Emergency Braking technology as standard, a first for any GTi model in Australia.
Managing Director of Peugeot Australia, Anouk Poelmann, said the 208 GTi Édition Définitive celebrates Peugeot’s long performance car history and is the perfect send-off to the current 208 GTi.

“The 208 GTi Édition Définitive will become a collector’s vehicle, much like the 208 GTi 30th Anniversary and the 205 GTi model that paved the way for performance Peugeots almost 35 years ago,” Ms Poelmann said.
“The 208 GTi Édition Définitive is the perfect way to mark the end of production of the current 3-door vehicle for Australia,
“With its outstanding value as well as its mechanical, performance, safety and visual upgrades, we expect the 208 GTi Édition Définitive to be snapped up very quickly,” Ms Poelmann added.
While five-door 208 models will continue to be offered in the market, Peugeot Australia will offer sharp drive-away deals across the Peugeot 208 range with savings of between $2,500 and $4,700 (depending on the model), including the standard 208 GTi, now at $29,990 drive-away.
