1979-1992 PEUGEOT 505 specifications

1979-1992 PEUGEOT 505 specifications Classic and Performance Car

Like the 504 it replaced, with the 505 Peugeot created one of the most recognisable and rugged medium-sized saloons on the planet. The main reason for the car’s success in developing countries was its ability to handle rutted and very poor road surfaces; the 505 is still produced in Nigeria, but European production stopped in 1993, when it was made redundant by the smaller 405 and the larger 605. The diesel 505s were always the biggest sellers, and if you opted for the estate it could be fitted with a third row of seats, giving room for eight people.
