Took one out for a spin today, first thing I noticed was the road noise at highway speeds was actually quite loud (in comparison to my 207 GT -- not GTI).

Anyone else noticed this?

Drove up to Gretna for a wedding at the weekend, 400 mile round trip, 40 MPG, didn't hang around either, car was brilliant, so much better than my previous RCZ THP 200.

Have not experienced 208 GTi first hand but have owned 207 GTi and now the THP156 208. If anything I would say road noise is less - construction of the car with seam welding instead of spot for example should reduce road noise - maybe depends on the road as the stiffer suspension on a GTi may well add to noise level.Have not experienced 208 GTi first hand but have owned 207 GTi and now the THP156 208.

Interesting. I may be experiencing this because my 207 GT (not GTI) has a quieter exhaust and possibly more sound deadening and softer suspension as it's the less sporty of the lineup.

I drove to Newcastle from Leeds at the weekend with the car maintaining a steady 2800 rpm. The engine's noise was present in the cabin but considerable quieter than my previous car, so relatively, it was bliss.

my new GTi 208 is very quiet on the motorway. the suspension is incredibly soft. The new 208 GTi sh*ts all over the 207 GTi in every aspect.
