Fantastically Rubbish 106 Desiel Banger. — Performance is rubbish, but handling is lots of fun - bigger then petrol model tires and no power assistance - just whizzes around corners with no loss of tration ever (never enough power anyway!). Fuel economy is incredable - £10 deisel will easily run the car for over 120 miles. Mostly what I ove about it is its character. It does everyhting its asked to do, absorbs all of the abuse daily life give it and carrys on with a smil on its face. Best of all it is a relaxing way to travel - noisy, bumpy and cramped, but steady and slow wheter you like it or not. Give up, sit back and chill out cos you'll never overtake the L plater / tractor / lorry in front anyway!

Pros: economy, character, handling

Cons: size, comfort, performance, street-cred.

Peugeot 106 Sport — It's a P106 Sport 1.4ccm with 75HP #Performace - 800kg vs. 75HP - acceleration-braking-handlig(on 195/50/15 Toyo T1R) satisfying #Build quality - 170kkm driven - reparis - none exept exshaust pipe. Squeeks - too much #Appearance - as a sport model of 106 it look pretty good on the outside. Inside - what can you expect from a 1998 Peugeot of the lowest class??? #Cost of Ownership - 7-9l/100km, maintenance - almost none Fun Factor - it's like a toy..

Pros: Fun to drive

Cons: Squeaks

1998 Peugoet 106 1.1 Look 2 — Performance - obviuosly for a 1.1 the acceleration is not face ripping, haah but it does a nippy number for a little car. the braking the sharp so you have to be light footed, though sayin that drum brakes arent the greatest so they do get hot. the handling is like playing witha go-Kart you can actually throw it into corners.lol build- 1 its FRECH so dont expect anything amazing! but the repairs are little adn minor but do come frequently. Styling - Interior is plain adn black yet is jazzed up a little on upper speck models mine is plain black but i love the simplicity. outside is a different kettle of fish, the (blaze yellow) or GOLD for you non pug beleivers is beautiful, witha good clean and polish it looks worthy of being concourse anyday! Ownership - the milage is brilliant i get a good 35 form the gallon great for pottering around town, then when you open up the taps its even better. Fun Factor - As mentioned previously the fun factor is EMMMENSE! its like being at the fair, go Karts alround, it grips at full throttle and you can pratically jus t race it constantly.

Pros: Loads

Cons: Some

Best Handling Fwd Car ! — for this prise you wont get a better handling car then this ! I reccomand to upgrade the brakes to citroen berlingo or 306, very nice acceleration for the 1400 motor and very good for the rally 1600 or GTI. the funnest car i have ever drove and feels like a go-kart !

Pros: Handling !!!!!!!!

Cons: plastic quality and some known electricity problems

106 Gtis. High Grade-low Cost Gems. — Only my second car and i love it! The 106 GTI was rated the best handling car in it`s super mini sub-class when released, power to weight ratio is great and the 120hp(ish) 1.6 ltr 16 valve injection engine competes with all but the real heavy weights (focus STs, Audi S3s etc), leaving most comparitable hatches in its wake. Prices are extremely reasonable starting as low as 12/1500 spondoolies (a lot of bang for the buck) for pre 2000 models. Small and v easy to park good milage CAN be obtained IF you exercise restraint. In all the 106 GTI can be an honourable friend to any age group. The buzzy nature (and almost unlimited upgradeability) appeals to the fast and the furious, while the restrained lines and lack of aggressive features will please most sunday stragglers.

Pros: Nippy, practical and LOADSAFUN!

Cons: SPINS-IN-WET!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My Car Is Best!! — i love this little car,iv'e owned 2 of these motors a 1.1 and a gti with a later turbo conversion.the 1.1 wast fairly able to cope with everyday driving with the handling being "fun" to say the least...it always made me smile.The gti was blisteringly fast...and it out handled ANYTHING on the road and quite a few trackday lads (you know who you are).The turbo was fantastic...ever wonderd what a mitsi evo driver look like when you open a 300 meter gap from a standing start over a 1 mile of twisty road......this guy was gobsmacked to be done by a little french car with a dodgy build quality!!!! priceless.fantastic car

Pros: handling and speed

Cons: french built! a bit iffy in a crash

Little Rocket — Its a fast little car, which holds the road well when your giving it sum. 0-60 its just under 7 seconds which is not to bad top speed you can get it of the clock thats 140mph, The insurance group is a 13 so its expensive untill your about 20 lol. but its french so my clutch cable went new driveshaft i got the cam and fan belt done to be safe.

Pros: The speed

Cons: Breaking down lol

106 Gti - Quick, Stylish, And Well Trimmed. Still Looks Good. — Revy 1.6 engine had plenty of go. Excellent handling, not quite up to Rallye standards, but not far off. Let down by typical French build quality, fell to pieces in no time.

Pros: Performance and handling. Leather interior.

Cons: Build quality.

Best Of Both Worlds — Performance - Being the 1.1 its not the baby of the 106 family .. it you want a fast 106 buy a 106 Gti, Handling on a twisty road you will leave most cars shocked 106 may not be super POWER but give them a a twist road and they are up there with the best of them.. Acceleration not amazing but good for a little fun Build Quality - Well its a Puegeot so its not the bast thing for Quality but it gives the car a personality.:) Cost of Ownership - Any body could run a 1.1 106, i over spent on mine becuase i like the 106 a little more then most :) Fun Factor - Very fun to drive in .. Fun in town fun on country roads fun on a track fun in allways ..And because its has no power steering no ABS you know its only you keeping you on the road and the 106 puts the fun back in to driving .

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Because im young and this gives me everythink i need and more on the road :)

Cons: You have to love a french hatch back to have one long term :)
