In the context of the policy of renewing the range, Peugeot introduced a new asset to the market in the 80s: the Peugeot 309.

This brought them into the segment in which they were not yet represented, that of the so-called middle class. In 1984 there was already a share of more than 30 percent of the market for this type of car. This Peugeot 309 was a five-door car that came on the market in different versions. The rear was high and compact, a modern car that was economical without sacrificing performance. The concept fitted completely into the market, suitable for a family with children.
Peugeot 309 in GTI version
This beautiful blue Peugeot 309 GTI16 has something aggressive and exudes power. The youngtimer is one of top quality, with a mileage of around 100.000 and that over a period of almost 30 years. We won't talk about fast acceleration, the GTI engine guarantees that.
No empty slogans
Fedde Jan Cats: “We have been regularly getting questions from France about whether we have Peugeot 309s for sale. In fact, we have already exported some.” That Peugeot wanted to be convincing with this fast GTI is even proven after so many years. With this striking Peugeot, Fedde Jan now has a trump card. The question is whether the special Peugeot 309 GTI16 will be kept for the Netherlands, the answer lies in the Frisian Witmarsum.
