Peugeot 505 Overview
The Peugeot 505 is classed as a large family car which was produced by the French automobile manufacturing company Peugeot. The 505 was in production from 1979 to 1992 and was the last rear wheel drive car to be produced by Peugeot. The saloon version was by the most popular, but there was also an estate version available. Although production ended in 1992, it remained in production until 1995 in Argentina and 1997 in China. The 505 replaced the 504 and was considered as very stylish in its time. It had a good interior design, was comfortable and also very spacious. These cars were good performers and were extremely popular cars, particularly as a saloon. Does this sound anything like your experience of the 505?
Peugeot 505 History
The Peugeot 505 was introduced in 1979 and replaced the 504. It shared many of its parts with its predecessor. The 504 was considered to be a really good ride, even on poor roads. The 505 emulated this and was even considered to be better. This led to it being a very popular car in more undeveloped countries with poor roads. In 1986 the car had a facelift, which meant an updated interior. As the Peugeot 405 was introduced in 1987, Peugeot were starting to make less 505 cars, and production ceased in 1992. The Peugeot 605 took over the saloon version.
The Peugeot 505 was available in the following engines: 1.8, 2.0 or 2.2L petrol and 2.3 or 2.5L diesel engines. The 2.3L diesel is the most economical, offering up to 37mpg which was reasonable for a car of this era. Which engine did you have and how did it perform in terms of fuel economy? The age, engine size and fuel type will be determining factors when considering fuel economy.
