I've owned several variants of 205 including the 1.9 GTI. My present 205 is the STDT fitted with a 1.9 turbo/intercooled XUD9 engine. She feels just as fast if not faster than my old 1.9 GTI. For a 22 year old car, the gears are smooth, the steering to precise and she pulls like a train. The car grips the road like a F1 race car and its just fun fun fun. Plenty of smiles per gallon for £650. … Read Full Review

My Peugeot 205 does the rare/cool car thing for me.
Commutes daily so [full size] spare wheel ready in hatch with chocks / jack etc. Well matched to UK speed limits and rural roads with plenty of hill climbing. [Pug 307 chosen for motorway work - but 205 DT for snow or flood]. Not For Sale [yet]. Generally puts a smile on faces… Read Full Review

The Peugeot 205 is cool. Some people think because it's a diesel it's slow, but wow!… Read Full Review

The Peugeot 205 stdt was the first car I bought AND the best Diesel car I've ever driven. As a youngster I had so much fun with this car keep up with most GTI my top speen i got out of it was 135mph, ok it was going downhill at the time. Cheap to run unless you put your foot down then it goes down as quick as the speedo goes up… Read Full Review

I have loved the Peugeot 205 GTi for almost my entre life, its looks and potential to be a showcase car is huge. Frankly the guy who mentioned how his corolla gti16 was far better in power is most probably right, ive studied this car for at least two years now (starting early looking for the right one to buy) and yes the Peugeot 205 GTi has a little lack in power, but whats the difference when you can update the engine. The handling rocks any hot hatch on the road and the looks are far better… Read Full Review

I had a Peugeot 205 GRD diesel, for a diesel they are very nippy and extremely cheap to run and insure. I have now changed the engine in it and added a 1.9gti engine fitted with a nitrous oxide system and a K&N air filter, It gives it roughly 180 - 190 bhp. 0 - 60mph in about 5 seconds. Doing this kind of modification is not cheap and is not insurance friendly, im 22 years old and i spend £3800 a year on insurance and over £100 a week on petrol, the car is fitted with a gti body kit 16" alloy… Read Full Review

My peugeot is a non gti xs version. Its a twin choke 1400cc petrol engine car and can get to 60mph in under 10 secs, this for the engine size is quite amazing. It can keep up with most bigger more powerful engined cars like golf gti's. For the money I paid for it and the fun I've had driving it I can easily recommend this to other young drivers. Now you probably say well wait young man and drive some other cars before you judge this little Frence banger, but I have. I've driven golfs… Read Full Review

Had the Peugeot 205 1600 gti for a few months and liked the overall look of the car. It was fun too, with not much more than a wheel in each corner, no weight to it and a pretty chirpy little engine. But, if i'm honest, it's not exactly the worlds best constructed car ever. The interior is cheap and nasty. The engines sound like a tank and the gearboxes don't have any good points at all. These cars rot badly too if not looked after, especially rear sills and tailgate. Not the fastest of the… Read Full Review

Had one of these Peugeot 205 stdt cars for 3 years - loved it! Great car highly recommended - not that much slower in real world speed to GTI.
Just bought the 1.9 GTI though and that really is the ultimate in hot hatches - show me a golf anyday and then wave goodbye!… Read Full Review
