Poodle in Sheep’s Clothing - 18th April, 2017

Describing the Peugeot 206 GTI as a wolf in sheep’s clothing would be a bit of a stretch but the little French city car packs a decent punch in GTI guise. The standard 1.4l version, that is most commonly seen here, squeezes out 75hp while the outwardly similar GTI knocks out 138 horses. It’s more poodle than wolf but a feisty poodle none the less.
