What Car? says

3 out of 5 stars

For It's a great town or country car. There's plenty of choice and it's cheap to buy and run

Against Lacks space; awkward driving position and thinly padded seats; basic design is getting on now

Verdict A spirited city car that will put a smile on your face

Go for… 1.4-litre Quicksilver

Avoid… 1.5 diesel

Peugeot 106 Hatchback
  • 1. Suspension may need repairs after 50,000 miles. Uneven tyre wear shows up problems
  • 2. The pedals are cramped and the steering wheel fixed, so tall drivers will struggle to get comfy
  • 3. If the car shows any signs of oil leaks, give it a wide berth. There are plenty others to choose from
  • 4. Watch out for signs of parking knocks and patched-up accident damage, especially on the GTI
  • 5. Clutches are often given a hard time, especially by younger drivers. If there's any clutch slip, avoid the car
