Peugeot 205 GTi 1.9

Description

The Peugeot 205 is a B-Segment car launched in 1983.

The Peugeot 205 GTi 1.6 litre was launched in 1984, fitted with a XU5J engine, producing 77 kW (105 ps). For the 1987 model year the XU5J received a new cylinder head with larger valves thus becoming XU5JA, producing an increased 86 kW (117 ps) . The car featured a redesigned and lowered suspension with stiffer springs, new wishbones and a drop-linked anti-roll bar. It was equipped with disc brakes at the front and drum brakes at the back and wore 14 inch alloy wheels (Speedline SL201).

The Peugeot 205 GTi 1.9 litre was fitted with an XU9JA engine producing 94 kW (128 ps), although later models with a catalytic converter produced 90 kW (122 ps). Internally these engines are very similar, the main differences on 1.9 litre versions being the longer stroke, oil cooler, and some parts of the fuel injection system. Over the 1.6 litre version, the 1.9 litre was upgraded with four wheel disc brakes and larger 15 inch alloy wheels (Speedline SL299).

Visually, the 205 GTi is distinguished by the plastic wheel arch extensions, the larger alloy wheels, the deeper and body coloured front and rear bumpers as well as the GTi logo on the C-pillar. Inside it had cloth (GTi 1.6) or half leather (GTi 1.9) sport seats and a three spoke steering wheel with the GTi logo in red lettering.
