    Default How sluggy would an auto 205si be?

    Hi all, I am looking for a cheap daily run about while both 504's are off the road. God forbid but I am looking at 205's. Iíve found a nice 1992 s1 205si 4 speed auto, but with a 1.6l engine I am just wondering if it would be really really sluggy. Iím not after skyline performance. But id still like to experience that "go kart" like performance. Would I still get that in an auto?

    There probably won't be too much of a notable performance difference but I'd be more worried about the lack of fun and unsuited nature of an automatic in a 205.

    I spent a bit of time in a 205 1.1L (manual) and it seemed to do ok. I'm guessing the 1.6L with an auto would have similar performance to a 1.1? Managed to hold 80mph ok

    "All of its cars from the 1.1 litre 205 through the ugly duckling 309 to the 2.2 litre 505 GTi had a rightness and a righteousness about them that turned every humdrum drive into a journey. Someone, I once wrote, in the bowels of Peugeot understands handling and how a chassis should feel." - Jeremy Clarkson

    I think it would simply come down to driving it wouldn't it? Your choice.

    James, I think member Orestes has one, or did at least. Maybe PM him or wait until he spots this?
