Neveah165's review of Peugeot 106 1.4 XSi

★★★★☆

“Its like the girl you love but others don't get it why”

Cheap, practical, spacious for it size with very decent power and one of the greatest feelings you can have driving a car

It is a love affair even if you know that it has its problems, you want to drive it with every opportunity. It has a lot of pros but somehow for every pros some cons also. The engine has good power for the weight of the car and it is the type of car you control by throttle, but it has so little very low end torque that you need 1st gear when in other cars you have 2nd( not so good at cruising around town, you can not cruise by changing gears and almost no throttle). Amazing feeling from the steering wheel, but you need to turn it a lot to make a corner, and it is so small that you can park anywhere but with so heavy wheel and turning cycle you strangle a lot. It is so spacious for its size but if you are over 1.80 m tall you hit the roof. It is so reliable mechanical, but at this age the plastics break every now and then etc.
But when you are on a curvy road by yourself and just drive it makes you smile.
I totally recommend this car to anyone, it is a good daily (if you want to exercise while parking haha) being so light even with factory suspension corners well while rides well also, you can go anywhere and carry your friends and family and when you are by yourself on a good road you can have the thrills of a good sport car. Needs a little reprogramming of your driving cause it is not forgiving (lift off oversteer ftw), but it does everything you tell it to do so it is one of the most evolving vehicles that can make you a good driver in the process.

also for those that say that they dont like the stripes, this is not a good example of an xsi, it is the first time i see one with stripes, generally i think it is a good looking car (i love the details of the xsi model)
For fuel i need almost 10 l per 100 km if it is good i let you decide and consider some oil also in the long run
