Peugeot 205 car insurance
The 205 is somewhat of an iconic car. Back in the day it was an ideal first car for someone, or a small family car, even now you'll find young drivers proudly sporting them as their pride and joy, or as a car that's been in the family since new.
During its production years, Peugeot sold around 5.3 million 205's and in 1990 CAR Magazine hailed it as Car of the Decade, amongst other accolades.
The table below looks at a broad range of the body types of the Peugeot 205 that were made, as well as their typical car insurance group range and the engine capacity. The tax bracket hasn't been included as due to the age of the car, the car tax is calculated on a different way, and not based on emissions like cars are now. The size of the engine and group range could affect the cost of your car insurance, so it's worth knowing where yours sits.

Not quite gone, and not quite forgotten
Not built since 1998, the Peugeot 205 is still a popular car in Britain. The 205 is a supermini that Peugeot built for the majority of the eighties and nineties so don’t expect it to have any fancy kit by today’s standards.
Likely to be cheap to buy and cheap to insure, if you are thinking of getting a Peugeot 205 be sure to check it thoroughly, and get one with a full service history if you can.
If you're in the market for an updated version of the 205, the 208 is the latest hot hatch from Peugeot that continues the pedigree established by the 205.
