Peugeot 205

Your winter warmer doesn’t need to be a large saloon or family-size hatchback, of course. So if you fancy something more compact than some of the other cars featured here, we’d highly recommend Peugeot’s image-changing 205, bog standard versions of which can still be picked up in good order from just a few hundred pounds.

Launched in 1983 and remaining on sale through to the mid-1990s, the 205 was a phenomenal success. Buy a non-GTi version now and you’ll find it’s a terrific bargain, its lightweight design, decent grip and no-nonsense spec making it an efficient machine when conditions turn bad.
