GTI-6 (1996)

C ar here used to call 306 GTI-6 King of the Twisty . that title might be a exaggerated #8211; a fast Evo or Integra Type R certainly ran on twisty roads #8211; it did how great the Peugeot controlled its and engaged its driver on challenging

Judging on pure driving fun of speed, the 306 GTI-6 deserved the regard. It had one of the most feelsome in the industry, which told you the textures, how much grip was and how hard it was cornering by varying and twitching in your hands. Few could match its eagerness to into corners.

Its passive rear-wheel steering enabled by using soft at its torsion-beam rear axle resulted in a turn-in sharper many rear-drive machines. Its chassis balance encouraged you to lift-off oversteer to aid cornering. you, it was far safer than the old 205 because the oversteer was more and it occurred only when you the car very hard. The 306 GTI-6 displayed terrific body and a surprisingly compliant ride.

In addition to the spacious cabin, bucket seats and family-hatch it was truly an all-rounder!

The GTI-6 life in 1993 as 306 S16. that car shared most of its handling and ride, it lacked a powertrain to match. In 1996, updated it to GTI-6 (the market and most European kept the S16 badge) with a face, a heavily improved and a new 6-speed gearbox (which its new name).

The 2-liter 16-valve engine got a new resonance intake manifold and exhaust manifold for smoother delivery and a better torque Lighter con-rods and valve raised its maximum rev to 7300 enabling a free-revving manner not on its predecessor, while lifting from the previous 150 hp (or 155 hp non-cat) to 167 hp.

It was not as powerful as Honda’s VTEC or MIVEC at the very top end, but it was more flexible and more at lower rev. Meanwhile, the gearbox offered smooth and gearchange, and its closely stacked aid acceleration in the twisty.

Today, the 306 GTI-6 and Rallye look painfully slow figures, but their ability to and thrill the driver is largely in modern hot hatches, including own 206 S16/GTI, 207 RC/GTI and 308 GT. It could be the great Peugeot hot hatch.
