1983-1994 PEUGEOT 205 specifications Classic and Performance Car

The world wasn’t quite ready for the 205’s brilliance when it exploded onto the scene, and Fiat’s less innovative Uno ended up pipping the French lion to the Car of The Year title. Buyers rapidly cottoned on, and the stylish hatchback became a best-seller across Europe. On the road, the 205 distinguished itself by its keen handling and restful ride, while lightweight construction meant meant all models were efficient. Engine and trim options were extensive (from 954cc to 1905cc), and all models were fun to drive – even the diesels. Hot models have the most classic appeal.
