Old v New : 1994 v 2014 Subaru WRX, 1989 v 2014 Peugeot GTi, 1968 v 2014 Mini Cooper S

Comparing old with new might seem like an unfair comparison because, with few exceptions, new models are bigger, safer, more refined and more economical, often quicker, too. All of which might leave an earlier iteration without a hope. However, the flipside is that previous models are smaller and rawer, which are negatives if you’re talking about a Corolla, but can be desirable qualities in the rarefied realm of high-performance icons...

Peugeot 208 GTi will resurrect spirit of 205 GTi, says car maker

The upcoming Peugeot 208 GTi will have closer parallels to the famous 205 GTi of the 1980s, says the French car manufacturer. The 205 GTi's successors to date, the 206 GTi and 207 GTi, weren’t short on engine performance but couldn’t match the pure handling fun of the original. A new 208 city car that’s lighter than the 207, however, provides the perfect basis for a great GTi variant, says Peugeot...

Peugeot 208 GTi: why this time the French brand must get it right

The launch of the Peugeot 208 marks a critical evolution for the French carmaker - it won’t necessarily make or break the company, but it may well be the most important model since the launch of the Peugeot 205 way back in 1983. Prior to the early 205, Peugeot was by far the most conservative of the big three French car companies and better known for building large and mostly uninspiring sedans such as the 504 and 505...

Peugeot 208 GTi: New hot-hatch concept revealed

The Peugeot 208 GTi concept has been unveiled ahead of its 2012 Geneva motor show debut next month, confirming the French car maker is ready to take another shot at rekindling the magic of its 1980s 205 GTi hot-hatch. Although the Peugeot 208 GTi being presented at Geneva is being called a concept, it’s clear this is a close-to-production version that carries only subtle sportier touches over the regular new 208 that goes on sale in Australia in September...
