Next-generation Peugeot GTI will be inspired by the SR1 Concept

For those who liked the Peugeot SR1 Concept, unveiled back in March at the Geneva Motor Show, we have good news: the French manufacturer will use the same design philosophy for the new GTI sport hatchback.

These words came from Peugeot design boss Gilles Vidal who confirmed that the next-generation GTI will incorporate the front-end styling of the SR1 Concept. For those who don’t know, the SR1 Concept used Hybrid4 technology, which means that the car was powered by a 1.6-liter THP petrol engine capable to deliver 160 kW (218 bhp) but also by a rear electric motor developing 70 kW (95 bhp). In electric mode the vehicle becomes a ZEV (Zero Emission Vehicle), while its combined cycle fuel consumption is only 4.9 litres/100 km or 119 g/km of CO2.
