Peugeot 206 SW (2002–2006)
British-built 206 SW on sale in May 2002
Prices starting from a UK competitive £8,995. The SW is 193mm longer than the 206 hatchback with the extra length all at the back to provide greater load capacity. This is 480 litres with the rear seats up. A handy touch is the rear window glass which, as on the Citroen C5 estate, can be opened independently of the tailgate for dropping small items into the load area. Rear seats are split-folding 60/40 and all three have lap/diagonal seatbelts.
