Smooth ride, economical, fun to drive
Tight in the back and very dated
The best supermini of the early 1990s, the Peugeot 106 was developed from the Citroën AX and shares much with the Saxo. It offered robust construction, excellent ride and refinement for its time, plus superb fuel economy and lots of driver satisfaction. A wide choice of cars at affordable prices means it's near the top of the used supermini league. The revised range from mid-1996 is topped by the exciting 1.6 16v GTi.
