    The Best Peugeot Model

    Naturally, I voted the 206, not because I have one but I generally believe thats its the nicest car Peugeot have ever made. And even though the Poll does not ask which one is the nicest, thats what I'm basing my answer on. As far as speed goes, the 205 GTI or 306 GTI-6 would probably get my vote.

    Im also aware that I could've added a lot more options to the poll (207, 307 etc...) but I couldn't be bothered. I'm hoping that the options I chose cover the most popular ones (which I assume are the '06 versions).

    I drove a 207 on holiday and it was the worst car I have ever driven. The suspension and handling was vague. The 106 GTi is a veritable gem and keeps up with much bigger cars on twisty tracks.

    106 quicksilver looks crisp, one of my favourites and possibly a next car. subtle body styling looks sweet.

    My 205 was awesome!!! It was only a 1.0 litre but was about as good a first car as you could ask for.

    Not fast by any means, but still quite nippy, ideal for the majority of town driving I do, and dead easy to go sideways on roundabouts in.

    Imagine a car that handles like that with a powerful 1.9 engine like the GTi... it's enough to keep you awake at night grinning like a maniac :D :twisted:

    I love 106's (almost as much as I love Saxo's and AX's), but for me, the 205 was the most ground breaking of the lot.. The T16 Rally car really was up there with the other Grp B cars from the likes of Audi. The more common GTi's are cool as fcuk too!

    i used to own a 106 GTI which i loved to bits ended up getting it to around 160/170BHP and it was alot faster than most "sporty" cars on road that had bigger engines because they are so light and was so much power, also they was brilliant for corners etc.. only reason i sold it was because i had done most things possible to gain power etc and wanted faster and more power but was toying with idea to put turbo on it but was ALOT of money and then ya could start doing damage etc and only front wheel drive so probably sit spinning wheels so went for option to move onto something faster and more power as standard.. Top car though and gets my vote

    Yeah, I agree, TU engines should definitely stay NA. Can quite easily get a reliable engine with 160/170 BHP, after this then you have to deal with an engine which spits valves and chews gearbox's!

    Whack up some pics of your GTi if you have any? Did you sell it on to a club member?

    You need to upload them to a server. Create a photobucket.com account (it takes a couple of minutes, then copy the 'IMG code' it gives you for the image into a post here.

    The most fun Peugeot i ever had the pleasure of driving was a 205 T16 i borrowed at a race meeting when the engine blew on my car the previous day. I can only describe it as awesome!!!

    I currently own a 306 DT the old turbo diesel and I love it....
    handles brillantly it's pritty quick and very torquey and economical
    I managed to buy a very low milage one in jan 2007
    Various family member have owned 306's and kept them for years
    My uncle had a similar model to mine but his was the phase 1 (mines a phase2 the phase 3 had the early hdi engine in it)
    grandad also had a p1 but was diesel N/a not quick at all but very economical and it did 250K and he sold it!

    for me the 306 and 205 have got to be the best car they have done.....
    they just don't make them like that anymore....

    250k is pretty good! Many cars struggle at 150k did he do much major work to it? I suppose how you drive affects the life of the car so I'm guessing he didn't do track days in it ;)

    206 GTi 180 is a force to be reckoned with, especially when you have a Tial Supercharger strapped to the manifold. I haven't found many cars that will out- perform this round the bends and hairpins of Billing Aquadrome or Donny.
