In the good old days, the Pug 205 GTi was the daddy of the hot-hatches and expectations have been high for its successor, the sharply-styled 206. It has yet to live up to the 205’s reputation.

Parkers Rating:

3.5 out of 5

In the good old days, the Pug 205 GTi was the daddy of the hot-hatches and expectations have been high for its successor, the sharply-styled 206. It has yet to live up to the 205’s reputation. The standard GTi doesn’t have the performance to shine and while the GTi 180 partly addresses that criticism it's still out-gunned by many rivals. Top dog it may not be, but it still offers plenty of performance for the price.
