Peugeot 306 Rallye - best ever Peugeot Sport cars

Peugeot mixed together everything it had learned with the 205 and 106 Rallye in order to create the 306 Rallye.

Peugeot mixed together everything it had learned with the 205 and 106 Rallye in order to create the 306 Rallye. Taking the brilliant 306 GTi-6 as its base, this Rallye variant ditched the unnecessary day-to-day bits and pieces and focused on getting the most from its 167bhp engine and engaging chassis.

At the limit it had an edginess that could catch out the unwary. Yet by using the motor’s strong mix of torque and rev-happy top end, it never felt anything but poised and alert when it needed to be, and adjustable and pliable when a little more movement was required.
