The Peugeot 106 was introduced in the autumn of 1991, as the French marque’s entry level car slotting in beneath the 205 – although it is now largely considered the ‘true’ replacement to the 205. It was a substantial development of the Citroën AX, intended to make it both heavier and safer. It was aimed directly at cars like the Renault Clio, which had gone into production a year earlier, and as a more modern alternative to the slightly larger 205 which had been a massive success for Peugeot and was still proving popular almost a decade after its launch. Winning praise for its modern styling, comfortable ride, excellent handling and cheap running costs, the 106 quickly became popular. Going against the appeal were limited interior space and budget interior plastics.
