Era um destes...

Styled by Pininfarina, the body was a completely new, all-steel monocoque affair which bore more than a passing resemblance to the 3-series BMW's of the time. The design was based upon Peugeot's 'VSS' prototype safety vehicle, which had begun life as a study into improving car safety. Thus, the car had bolt-on front wings, deformable end structures (or 'Crumple Zones'), reinforced doors and a protected fuel tank.
Despite the modern design and new safety features, the 305 was still rather traditional in other senses. It had the standard 'three-box' shape, with a separate boot instead of a hatchback; which was becoming more popular with other car manufacturers. This made the 305 an interesting blend of old and new. in peugeot305.co.uk
