The Peugeot 208 GTI has been revealed, marking the fourth generation of the French maker's hot hatch. We've a while to wait before we can make a judgement on just how good the sporting 208 is, but we couldn't resist revisiting the delights of the heroic Peugeot 205 GTI in the lead up to the new model's launch.

The 205 gti is simply the best hot hatch ever.  I still think it looks fantastic and has hardly dated.  If only they still made cars like this.  I'm off to see if I can buy a later 1.9!




Totally subjective?

We all have our fav cars,there's no question about that,but, much as i admired the 205GTi,it just didn't do it for me,having driven one for a few miles and been a passenger in one being driven by a guy who thought he was Seb Loeb, i came to the conclusion of my heading, my fav car (sob sob!)was my M3,now that was some car!

I've got a white 1.9 totally standard and mint and Its hilarious - gets more attention than you would believe.

range rover as a daily driver but it's always refreshing to get behind the wheel of the pug - no driver aids just good old fashioned fun in a lightweight car with the best steering feel of anything I've ever owned.



I've got one too!

Fitted with a 16v mi16 engine and it is fantastic.

Nothing can touch it for fun, but I wish people would stop wishing the 208 will be as good. The 205 is almost 30 years and its a very different motoring world now.

If its as good as Clio 200, then it is doing well.

Get a good 205 gti now, while you still can.

It is tragic in how many respects the modern equivilents to this car are simply worse.  Really pretty much any save the utilitarian.  What other 'product' is just less nice to use than it was 30 years ago?

It is very difficult to find all information about Pakistan at one place and I have run exhaustive search but could find appropriate stuff, however this website provides very good information and should be shared with all those looking for Pakistan Encyclopedia

Can the Sega Dreamcast still play games online on Peugeot 205 GTI? I've started getting into collecting older game consoles. Right now, I'm trying to decide what system to get next, so to help, I want to know if the Sega Dreamcast of Peugeot 205 GTI can still play games (Phatasy Star Online, NFL 2k1 etc.) online.How do you play a game of skate online? On youtube people say " GOS Set and Match" How do you play Are there any other games iwin|iWin.vn|iWin.com

    More of an expensive oddity than a range-topping performance SUV, and an ultimately unsatisfying oddity at that

    Decent styling, a well-judged interior and good practicality means Fiat's 500X is a worthy entrant on your compact crossover shortlist

    The new i20 is a very spacious, well-kitted and keenly priced addition to this competitive segment, but it’s let down by weak engines

    This sporty 911 Carrera plugs the gap between the standard Carrera S and the hardcore GT3 successfully
