The Peugeot 208 GTi Edition Definitive features bespoke visual upgrades as well as improved handling components.
Marking the end of production of the current-generation 208 GTi, Peugeot Australia has released a limited-run variant featuring sportier looks and stronger cornering performance.
Called the Edition Definitive, the French hot hatch is limited to just 20 units and carries a drive-away price tag of $33,990.
For comparison, the standard 208 GTi upon which the Edition Definitive is based, is now priced at $29,990 drive-away.

The vehicle is distinguished by unique ‘Pearl White’ and ‘Matte Black’ paintwork as well as Peugeot Sport badging on the C-pillar.
On the inside, the Edition Definitive gains Peugeot Sport bucket seats and red embroidered floor mats.
Aiding in performance, the up-specced three-door has also been treated to a Torsen limited-slip differential and a bespoke suspension package that features revised spring and damper rates, a wider track, and a lower ride height.
As with the standard three-door GTi, the Edition Definitive is powered by a 153kW/300Nm 1.6-litre four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine that sends drive to the front wheels via a six-speed manual gearbox.

For the first time in an Australian market Peugeot GTi model, the new limited-edition variant is equipped with auto emergency braking as standard.
Peugeot Australia boss Anouk Poelmann suggested that given its high specification and potential collector status, the 20 Edition Definitive units will be sold very quickly.
“The 208 GTi Edition Definitive 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,” she said.
