Peugeot 206

Peugeot 206 seems to have stumbled across a winning formula with its 205 replacement, the 206. We aren't talking about Peugeot 206 a few meaningless industry awards here; rather this is a car Peugeot 206 that has been among the most popular in its class for over half a decade
 It may not go down in history in the same way as its forebear but this small hatchback continues to be a hit with British buyers.The UK-built  Peugeot 206 comes with three or five doors as a hatchback, in Coupe Cabriolet guise or in estate form, known as the SW. Peugeot 206 appeal spans all age groups, classes and demographics, which was something Peugeot hadn't managed since the discontinuation of the 205.The Coventry charmer comes with an impressive choice of powerplants and there should be something to suit all driving styles, budgets and tastes. Peugeot 206 also more specification levels than you can shake a stick at, ranging from the base level Independence up to the top of the range GTi 180.

While Peugeot 206 looks good and comes well equipped, the hot hatch model isn't as sharp as the old 205 GTi. A cheaper diesel hot hatch is available in the form of the HDi GTi. While this is something that would have been unimaginable in the 205's era, the poky little oil burner actually makes a lot of sense in today's climate of high fuel prices and insurance premiums. 
That even today the Peugeot 206 doesn't give much away to its more modern competitors is testament to how sorted the original design from 1998 actually was.Our verdict on the Peugeot 2061.6 HDi GTi It may be older than much of the competition but the Peugeot 206 still has a fresh and contemporary look that strikes a chord with UK buyers. Peugeot 206 extensive powerplant line-up and nimble chassis make it one of the most entertaining small hatchbacks on the market.

Peugeot 206 good fuel economy from the diesel unit and right across the Peugeot 206 range (with the exception of the GTi 180) will make pump rendezvous mercifully infrequent. Peugeot 206 although the 180 has a high insurance grouping, the rest of the line-up is much lower, which should keep premium costs down. Peugeot 206 average service and repair costs shouldn't price many potential buyers out of this market.Peugeot 206 space and practicality Space and Practicality Rating 5.There is a surprising amount of legroom in the back, although headroom is rather limited. Peugeot 206 being a small hatchback it would be unfair to expect MPV-like practicality from the Peugeot 206. That said, there is enough stowage to meet the needs of a couple of adults with up to two small children. A small glovebox and limited in-cabin storage are inconvenient, however.
