Peugeot 206 Review
When we think about France, we think about Peugeot
. For many decades this brand has been producing the cars that become everybody's dream, and this car is not an exception. This article is about beautiful Peugeot 206. We`ll make a small review to describe the main features and specifications, as well as some peculiarities of the car.
There's a decent choice of engines in the 206 range starting with the entry-level 1.1-litre petrol with just 60bhp. It's adequate around town but not a good choice for longer journeys, instead look to the 1.4-litre with 75bhp (from 2003 this was upgraded to a 16v version with 90bhp).
But the best engine in the range of performance and economy is the 1.6HDi with 110bhp (that was launched in 2004 and only available as a GTi). It's smooth, fairly quiet and offers strong in-gear pace. Prior to the 1.6-litre, Peugeot offered a 2.0HDi but this only boasts 90bhp - however it's a good motorway cruiser.
The 206 is safe and easy to drive with light controls. This has its disadvantages on more demanding roads though where the overly assisted power steering robs the driver of any feel and there's precious little feedback. That's a shame as the handling is well set up and the 206 corners neatly with good levels of grip while body roll is fairly controlled.
The slack five-speed gearbox is a big annoyance though and only adds to the low-rent feel plus the ride can be a little crashy, especially on the sportier models.
Behind the wheel
While the exterior styling has aged significantly, the same cannot be said of the interior. The layout is fairly neat with a nice information screen on top of the dash but the scratchy plastics, unsupportive seats and the odd rattle do little to instil confidence in longevity and durability. But the biggest bugbear is the awful driving position. The pedals are too close together and the steering wheel is too far from the driver and sits at an odd angle.
There's a lack of storage too.
Most of the engines in the 206 are loud, and the obvious lack of noise insulation doesn’t help while there's intrusive wind noise at higher speed. It certainly doesn't feel very refined. The lack of support in the front seats can make longer journeys tiring and the cramped driving position doesn't help comfort either - it's certainly not a car that is designed for long motorway journeys.
On the plus side, rear passenger space isn't bad for a car of this size, but when compared to newer rivals it seems quite cramped
