Peugeot Perks Up 206

Tue, 28 May 2002
Faced with increased competition from the Honda Jazz, Citroen C3, new Polo, new Fiesta, new Ibiza and new Yaris D-4D Peugeot has come up with a special summer line-up of its pretty 206. The most important change is that all now get five three-point seatbelts.

They kick off the 1.1 Style 3-door at £7,995 which now comes as standard with Peugeot’s modular folding passenger seat, electric front windows, three rear head restraints and a 60/40 split folding rear seat.

Next up the 1.1 Look 3-door already came with air-conditioning, sports front seats and twin airbags, but now also has electric windows, three rear head restraints and 60/40 folding rear seat for £8,595. The 5-door is £9,095. Performance is 0-60 in 14.7 seconds, top speed 98mph, economy 45.6mpg combined and CO2 emissions a low 148g/km.

All LX models get front foglights and ‘Visibility Pack’ comprising darkness sensing automatic headlamps, rain sensing wipers and heat reflective windscreen. A 1.1LX 3-door with air-conditioning hits the tills at £8,995.

All GLX models now get ABS and 14” alloy wheels and start at £10,595 for the 3-door.

Designed to appeal to new wave buyers, the 206 Quicksilver comes with body coloured door handles, mirrors and bumper aprons, plus a 1.4 engine, ABS, electric heated door mirrors and the Visibility Pack for £10,745.

The 1.6XSi and 2.0D Turbo have ABS with EBD, front foglights, sports suspension, sports seats and leather steering wheel as standard. Improvements for Summer 2002 include side airbags, body coloured electric door mirrors and Visibility Pack at £11,765 for the 9.5 seconds to 60 1.6XSi and £12,695 for the 53.3mpg 2.0D Turbo.
