It is no exaggeration to say that the Peugeot 205 marked a turning point in the history of the world’s second oldest car manufacturer. The PSA Group had made a loss in 1980 – the first time ever. But thanks to the instant and sustained success of the 205, which was launched in 1983 and produced for a full 15 years with almost no visible changes, the company not only recovered, it prospered. The “little lion”, as it was affectionately known, was a very agile and thoroughly modern 3 or 5-door small car, offered with an incredibly rich engine range. Ever popular was the GTI, which rivalled its VW Golf counterpart not only in name. In 1986, a Pininfarina-designed convertible was added to the range, and in the same year an automatic gearbox became optional.
Over 5.3 million units sold meant a new company record for Peugeot at the time. More than 410,000 units went to customers in Germany, where in 1985 and 1986 the 205 became the best-selling imported car. Also unforgotten are the successes on rally tracks all over the world, where the 205 Turbo 16 with mid-engine took many victories.
