“Over rated and far too thirsty for a little engine. ”

Written on: 05/04/2013 by Richardisaacs (1 review written)

I own a 106 1.4 xsi, after reading all these reviews I'm not sure we are talking about the same car. It revs hard but does not. Have the speed to match it. My girlfriends 1.8 diesel focus was pulling away from it today. Really poor on fuel. Love the looks and the way it feels to drive but after hearing about how nippy they are before I bought it then driving it I found it pretty much same as any other 1400 . Pretty slow if you ask me… Read Full Review

These cars are a good cheapmans sports car! They handle like go-carts on rails, very responsive steering, and very powerful engines yet still maintain fairly good fuel economy.

Used everyday and its great to know every morning your going to be driving a great little car giving you loads of fun on the way to work and then again on the way home. I still find it hard to believe that this little 1.4 xsi has only 100 bhp as standard. if you ever get the chance to own one of these or even better by one I would take it.

Written on: 30/11/2006

I agree. My Peugeot 106 XSi is the fastest car I can insure. It's red, and it's been lowered 50mm all round. It's got a piper-cross induction kit. It's de-cat and just had a head skimm. It cost me 800. I've spent 1500 on it, and it's the fastest car in my age group (due to insurance). I would advise you look closely, as they all have high mileage, and many are past MOT standard. If possible find a mint, low mileage version and buy it. I strongly urge you, as this car is the most fun, driver focused car I have driven to date.

I got my 106 XSi off an old lady. Its only done 40,000 miles, however it cost me £1,400, but its almost like a new car. Quick as you like and easy to drive, it's my first car, but it was so easy to get used to and fun at the same time.

I'm now on my second Peugeot 106 1.4 XSi as you can't beat the original pocket rocket. First XSi was slightly modified (filter,Lowered,4 Branch pipe) and never had any problems until 75000 miles then intermittent engine problem forced me to sell it. Now on second unmodified XSi and runs a dream with 97000 on clock. Handles more or less just as well but seems less responsive than the modified version.

Written on: 16/05/2005 by Postie2003 (10 reviews written)

Drive this Peugeot 106 1.4 XSi car around town or with any mechanical sympathy and it felt awful. Throttle response was woolly, the idle erratic and bottom end and midrange pull simply wasn't part of the equation. Let the revs build however and it changed. The clattery engine note smoothed out, the exhaust note took on a lovely deep growl and at 5,000 RPM the engine took off, snarling to the limiter at 7,500 with shove that you just wouldn't expect from a 1.4.

The chassis was much the same. It… Read Full Review

Try Tesco car insurance i found them pretty cheap or u could move over here to the Isle of Man where u can witness 17 year olds flying around in Impreza Turbo's and havin no trouble getting insured. I've had 3 XSI's and they've all been amazing, the 1st 1 I got off a m8 for £50 and had 152k and still went like the clappers until the clutch went and i scrapped it. The 2nd 1 i got for £100 which I kept for a couple of years and only ever changed the oil. Then i got my 3rd 1 so i stripped a few bits off my 2nd 1 then scrapped that as well. The 3rd 1 I still have and now has a 1.6 16v gti engine in it and is super quick. Check out XLR8.co.im and go to gallery then your cars then look for Mallabys cars and you'll see my pics. Cheers.

I owned a 106 1.6 xsi for two years. Best fun i have had on four wheels. All you need to do is spend as much as you can on tyres and let the peugeot suspension magic do the rest. My best moment was overtaking a e36 m3 evo round the outside on a tight two lane bend. The guy was already steering into a full on tail slide and i passed him on the outside. Shame they don't make Re 71 Bridgestones anymore as the little pug seemed to like them. Anyway keep up the stories lads as it seems no-one has been here for a while!

Yeh well I live in Birmingham, so thats a big city and I live in a pretty nice area as well. I thought this would bring the premium down, but it actualy makes it higher. Last year on my road there was some kind of "Gone in 60 seconds" style car boost of 11 cars. Insurance companies log that kind of thing I guess, because my dads insurance went up for the first time in 20 years!

Still costs me £1900 with 1 years NCB, which sucks but it's quite possibly because i've got 3 points on my license for speeding, last year it cost me £2200 when I was 17.

Maybe so, but I live in a fairly high risk area postcode apparently, even though you wouldn't expect it. My mate can get it for under £1100 at his address and he is 18 and passed his test just after me at the beginning of feb. Your job makes a massive difference to the premium as well though, and you can't really change that.

Some people are saying that this car costs 1900 to insure thats not true, you've just gota work it out. Im 19, passed my test 2 months ago and I can get insured on a 1.6 106 xsi for £1220, with no NCB at all. One trick you can use is, add your mum to the insurance, it took about £450 off mine.

Depends if the person opted to have the standard alarm + immobiliser, but yeh generally they do, but it's rubbish :|, with the problem being that it'll be a 12 year old alarm if no ones decided to ever replace it and when i was looking for an XSi, i noticed that was the case. i've had a C5T2 fitted to my car quite recently, and that's great. I'd rather someone had ragged the car slightly, because my breaks were corroded due to lack of use and my engine needed badly blasting out :|, i had to rag it for 2-3 weeks just to open it up a bit better, but it's fine now, only just taken it for a service today funnily enough and everythings fine apart from the exhaust finally needs replacing despite my 6 months of just welding it trying to save myself from buying a new one :(

You were lucky to find an xsi that had been owned by an old dear! Did she rag the nuts off it?! Well im still looking for one and getting very dissapointed by the lack of choice on the autotrader website. I've got a quote for £1050 for the year which isn't too bad considering i've only got 1 years no claims and had a liscence for two years. Guess it depends on where you live. There are plenty on ebay but I dont trust that...especially as you cant drive them first. Anyways cheers for the help. Oh yeah, do they come with a keypad immobiliser or alarm as standard? I live down south but probably be using it at uni in Liverpool, and considering i saw a brand new M3 which had been keyed and spray painted...I dont fancy my chances!

Bracket had been banged on something before he'd bought the car, obviously weakened through time, possibly someone hit the top of the curb when they were backing out the drive... or something to that effect, but easy enough to weld a new bracket in place, but yeah.. can still remember the day he phoned me up asking if I could get him the gas welder from work because his spare wheel fell from the back of the car when he was going over a speed bump.

Well... my cars only done 46,000 miles, it was owned by an old woman before I bought it 2 years ago, and in the 10 years she had it, she did around 3000-4000 miles a year in it, and had it servived twice a year, so i've never had any problems with mine as of yet, apart from when I had to replace the radiator in 2003, and the brakes aren't that good on them as standard, but everything else has been sound, aslong as they've been looked after and haven't had some chavvy boy racer in them, then it should be fine. Another one of my mates has one also, only problems he's had are a lot of wear on his brakes and he's had to change the radiator twice, oh and his spare wheel dropped out from the back of the car :|, but yeah, apart from that, it's a marvelous car!

Thats a healthy little discussion you've got going on here! To the matey with the xsi..i'm considering buying one soon (when I eventually find a decent one) and was wondering have you had any major problems with yours? With the money i'm looking to spend it will probably have about 90,000miles on the clock. I've had a 106 1.4 roland garros before which had 119,000 miles on when I sold it (the head gasket was about to go and couldnt be bothered to fix it) and the gearbox, clutch and ECU was changed at 100,000 miles. Is there anything extra I should be looking for when viewing one? Also where is the best place to find one? Was considering a fiesta 1.4si but would prefer a pug! They wipe the floor compared to the other ones of its class... they look sound as well! Cheers guys.

I'm considering buying one (when I eventually find a decent one). I've had a 106 1.4 roland garros which had 119,000 miles on it and then the head gasket went...which is fair enough. The gearbox, cluch and ECU was replaced at 95,000 miles. Hows the fuel consumption? I payed £800 for insurance on my last 106 for the year so probably looking at what £1100 for a 1.4xsi.. got 1 years no claims?
<br>I'm looking for a standard car, any ideas on the best places to find one? All the other 1.4's are rubbish by the way.

Renault 5 GT Turbo, you can't really add to the discussion, it's a rare car to find like a G40, the metro GTi hmm..., it's 16 valve with a cat, XSi is a decat 8 valve, it will move off the mark faster, so the 0-60 will be around the same for both cars and the top speed is slower than an XSi.
<br>
<br>Only thing that would be better is the brakes, because the XSi brakes are shockingly bad, fitted the back axle of the Saxo VTS so I had disc instead of drum on the back, recommended upgrade for an XSi owner.

I know, and im not trying to compare it to the XSi, but mine is pretty quick. And the standard book figure of 0-60 in 12 seconds is rubbish. I've had my car hooked up to my uncles GPS system, which has a rather accurate speedo on it and we timed my car at just over 9 seconds.

You're right the XSi is rapid, but its not the fastest 1.4 out there. First off, you've got the renault 5 GTT, which would wipe the floor with it, even standard. Then we have the Metro GTi, with its 16v multi-point injection engine putting out about 110 bhp standard. Again, not a lot of competition. Too rare and expensive? Do what I did and buy an AX GT. About 90bhp as standard, not a huge amount, but it weighs about as much as a fart in a paper bag, and as such is very rapid. Think 0-60 in about 8 seconds, and a conservative estimate at top whack of about 115, give or take a bit with the speedo wobbling (actually read 125).
<br>Having said that they aint that reliable, so I am looking into buying a 106 XSi as something still rapid, but rapid every day.

Yeah, novas are pretty quick but not fast, but compared to one of the fastest 1.4s of there time... there not, :|, you can beat an Si because there 16V with a cat, if you raced it's baby brother the XR2i, i'm sure the outcome would be different, the Si is perhaps... infact is.. a rubbish car :|.

<br>Your car will out accelerate, a reasonable amount of cars on the road under 1.4, but it still has the same engine as a corsa, but because of how light the car is, there's more of a HP/weight ratio, but from what I can see on tests/studies performed by Vauxhall, it will max out at around 110mph, 10.5ish seconds to 60, you may here different ofc, or your speedometer may tell you different.. but.. a vauxhall speedometer is about as reliable as the english goverment :P
<br>
<br>don't get me wrong, it's a nice car, but to compare it to an XSi would be criminal :|. from my point of view to find a faster standard 1.4 (and below) than an XSi, is near to impossible, don't dare start posting Volkswagen Polo G40 either :)

Right I did write a long post just now but then my computer crashed so i'll shorten it...
<br>
<br>Nova's are quick (well mine is), my mate in his Fiesta Si cannot catch me, and the SR's have a reputation of being quick that is why insurance is sometimes high. My car is near standard except for K&N and next week a magnex is going on.

Ahh but your forgetting the reputation the Nova has. And just because it isn't as powerful it does not mean it isn't as fun etc... I admit that the XSi is probably a bit quicker, but you'd be suprised at how quick my nova is and it only has a K&N on it, with the added magnex soon. I'm not trying to be big headed at all but they are quick little cars and they weigh absolutely nothing. Still after all this my insurance still wanted 2k off me. But I dont think so.

How can you compare a Nova SR to a 106 XSi, an XSi is a 100bhp machine, a Nova SR is what?, about 75-80? :/ a Nova SR is far cheaper insurance than the XSi :/. just because it's a 1.4, doesn't mean it's the same engine, the XSi is a very fast 1.4 and insurance class 10, your nova is possibly the same insurance class as the Corsa SRi?, same engine presumably? just not fuel injected.

I started driving middle of last year and my insurance wanted £2000 from me for my Nova SR. It has the same 1400cc that this XSi has but is not fuel-injected. To get anywhere near something I could afford I had to do pass plus which brought it down to a grand. Oh yeah that is also with no mods!

A lot more than £1500, I've got the same car, I've got 1 years NBC and that car costs me £1900 without mods :|, so he's just plain NOT going to get insured.

Engine itself is fine. Its all the electronic rubbish attached to it! I had a 1.4 306 that hesitated and i could never fix it and that was the same basic engine as the XSI but with only 75bhp.

Written on: 04/03/2004 by man2000ad (1 review written)

I have an L reg metallic blue Peugeot 106 xsi 1.4 which I purchased for less than £1000 at an auction. I was looking to buy a slightly bigger car at the time, but this baby just looked so cute. It is absolutely spotless inside and out and looks almost brand new even though it is 10 years old. I was amazed that I left behind a Golf GTI and a souped up Vauxhall Corsa at the lights the other day, I was grinning ear to ear at the looks I got from the occupants of the other cars at the next set of… Read Full Review

The reason you left that golf GTI behind at the lights was A) because it wasnt racing you or B) because you dreamt it. There is no way on earth a 306 xsi would beat a golf gti being driven properly. The power to weight ratio is much bigger on the golf and it had more power to begin with.

I have owned a Peugot 106 XSi for 3 years and agree that it has an edge on a majority of bigger engined cars. And yes I do admit to driving like a pleb but it proves that Peugeot's engines are the mutts nuts, besides it will out-rev and out-brake almost anything. Golf GTi's are no match for 7500 rpm!! Two of my friends drive Fiesta's, ones an XR2i and the other a Zetec-s(1.6 16valve), and the pug leaves them both standing. now that says somethin!!!

I was talking about the mk 1 or the mk 2 beause they are fast. The mk 3 and 4 are slow but even an mk 4 is 150 bhp.

what 306 xsi? I thought this was a 106 xsi review!
<br>
<br>Anyway, how do you know the power/weight ratio of the golf he beat when he didn't say which series/version it was. Mk3 8v's are so slow its laughable. I presume you mean the mk1 which is the only one that is lighter than the 106, in which case you would be making sense.

Actually it would beat a Golf Gti. It has 100bhp standard and weighs around 700kg. A golf has a 2.0L engine but weighs over 1 tonne. Think power to weight ratio - why would an F1 car beat a 6.0L engined Hummer even though the engine is smaller...because its lots lighter!

Yes Peugeot 106's are great, initially I had a 1.5 diesel ok not the greatest of engines but then it was economical. I recently changed that for a 1.4i Roland Garros and the difference is massive. The engine is responsive quick and handles a dream, I changed the standard wheels for a set of 15" alloys and the grip is even better. I have made a few other minor mods to it to such as CD player all new speakers, bullet aerial, meshed front bumber opening, centralised lettering at the back too. I also have a centralised letterbox exhaust on order from powerflow. All in all I love this car and am a big fan of this shape phase 1 as I think the phase 2 is too rounded.

Helpsy, I am sooooo with you here!
<br>
<br>I absolutely love my red xsi, wich I've owned for 5 years. I just cannot replace it with any modern dull little hatchback. I'm probably selling it next year to get a Cooper (the S, if I can).
<br>
<br>It's fast (it's so light!), manic, grips the front and hangs the rear out in the most controllable fashion. The engine is no power-house, but the chassis is really a fun-park. It's just so easy to have fun whith it!
<br>
<br>But in the wet, oh boy. I also crashed, last weekend. I'm in for 1200 euros, for starters. It's pretty bad. But I'll fix it. It's better than anything I can buy at this moment.
