    It's about time Peugeot made a proper hatch again,

    The 205 GTI weighs in at about 875kg and the GTI6 at 1200 kg so if they make it lighter than the gti6 then they are already on for a winner, they just need to make the steering feelsome ride nice and handle the bends because thats what a fast peugeot is all about.

    How do you know the 208 is crappy? Have you owned one?

    This is a rather immature statement.

    Also comparing a new and a second hand car on price does not work very well.

    Actually I think it's the 207 that the 208 is lighter than, not the 206.

    the 207 is huge compared to the 206! and buying a high performance second hand car gives a better base for tuning. the 208 gti looks too tinselly. looks are good but it looks like they've tried too hard.

    The current cliosport is huge compared to the previous one, infact the twingo is the almost same size as the old clio. It's the way of the world. That said, 5th Gear managed to track a new cliosport faster than the old one.

    well it's bound to be faster but the old clio sport looked better
