New Car Road Test

  • Peugeot 206 Hatchback

  • Overall Rating
    Price: 13,770 For: A supple ride and agile chassis make every 206 GTi great fun.
    The petrol engine is entertaining, especially in 180bhp form,
    while the new turbodiesel GTi is punchy yet frugal.
    Against: Interior design and quality of materials
    are dowdy and a let-down compared with those of more modern rivals.
    The driving position is dreadful.

  • Performance
    Ride Handling Refinement
    Engine flexibility is the keynote
    Nimble and fun Engine and road noise compete for attention Performance.
  • The 2.0-litre engine
    in the GTi now comes in 137bhp or 180bhp form and
    easily copes with the 206's compact size.
    It's best when the revs have been stoked up, but there's plenty of low-down pull for overtaking.
    The new 1.6 turbodiesel model - Peugeot's first diesel GTi -
    is not as fast as its petrol brothers but its 180lb ft of torque gives it
    the strongest pull of any 206.
  • Handling
    All 206s are nimble and fun, while the hotter GTis also provide alert steering, good brakes and a
    chassis that's sensitive to sudden changes in accelerator position.
    The ride is rather firm around town.
    The 180bhp GTi has an uprated suspension and 17-inch alloys
    that bless the car with even more agility,
    grip and feedback to keep enthusiastic drivers happy.
  • Refinement
    Some noise is to be expected in the petrol versions
    because the engines need a good dose of revs to give their best.
    The 206 also allows a lot of harsh road noise into the cabin,
    and the climate control system makes a racket.
    The long-throw gearchange is a touch notchy, and the clutches are sometimes sticky
    and become increasingly so with miles.
  • Body type Hatchback
    Number of doors 3
    Number of seats 5
    Engine (cc/type) 1560/4
    Fuel type Diesel
    Max power (bhp/rpm) 110/4000
    Max torque (lb ft/rpm) 180/1750
    Max speed (mph) 118
    0-60mph (sec)
    30-70mph (sec) 10.4
    In Gears 30 to 50 (sec) 4.3/6.8/11.6
    In Gears 50 to 70 (sec) 6.2/7.4/9.1
    Braking distance (m) 9.5/49.1

  • Buying Quality Safety and Security
    Competitive prices and decent resale values Cheap plastics but mechanically reliable Four stars in crash tests; security is reasonable
  • The petrol GTis are more expensive to run than other 206s
    because of poorer fuel economy and higher emissions.
    However, the clean new turbodiesel's low emissions put it in the bottom company car
    tax band and it returns an impressive 56.5mpg. although the Peugeot only needs to be serviced every 20,000 miles,
    and the car's popularity keeps residual values above average.
  • Quality
    The quality of the Peugeot's materials is disappointing,
    and the drab layout gives the whole cabin a downbeat air that's totally out of place in a GTi.
    The 206 is proving to be a reliable car, however,
    and is covered by a three-year, 60,000-mile warranty.
    Routine maintenance is cheap but bigger repairs may be costly.
  • Safety and Security
    The 206 achieved a four-star rating in Euro NCAP's crash tests.
    Standard safety kit on the GTi models includes twin front and side airbags and anti-lock brakes.
    All GTis come with an alarm, immobiliser and deadlocks to keep thieves out.
  • Urban 47.1
    Extra Urban 68.9
    Combined 58.9
    CO2 Rating 126

  • Behind the Wheel Space and Practicality Equipment
    Chances are, you won't be sitting comfortably A practical boot,
    but too few cubby holes Spec list pales next to some rivals'
  • Behind the Wheel
    No matter how much you juggle the driver's seat and the low-slung steering wheel,
    you end up with a straight-armed driving position
    and an uncomfortable bent-knees posture.
    The GTi 180's bucket seats are much more supportive than the chairs in the other versions, however.
    Poor-quality trim and fiddly switchgear make the cabin an unappealing driver's workplace.
  • Space and Practicality
    Although the Peugeot has been overtaken by at least half a dozen competitors for space,
    it still offers a reasonable amount of interior space.
    In addition, its practical, rectangular boot doesn't lose much space to the rear wheel arches,
    while it opens up to a useful size when the seats split and fold.
    The GTis are available in three-door form only.
  • Equipment
    As the flagship models of the range, the GTis are better equipped than most 206s:
    all get climate control, alloy wheels and leather trim,
    while the 137bhp petrol and TD versions have a single CD player and the 180 gets a CD multichanger.
    Metallic paint costs extra.

The GTI TD's have 115bhp. I'd go for that one. bags of torque and decent acceleration! I think the 206's are starting to look a bit old now though. But if it aint broke, dont fix it.....just make it faster laugh
