This review relates to my experiences of a 2003 model Peugeot 206 1.4 HDi LX 5-door. I had the car on hire for a weekend and racked up some 400 miles in it. Now, the 206 has been the most popular new car in the UK with private buyers for some time, and it's not hard to see why. The styling strikes a chord with a lot of people (more on that later), Peugeot UK do some excellent special offers and finance deals, and the range of engines and trims is so vast there is literally something for everyone. Anyway, I came across this new 1.4 HDi diesel model when I had cause to hire a car for a weekend. I was expecting a Corsa 1.2 so that was something in the ... Read the complete review

I bought my Peugeot 206 LX on a W plate back in 2005 for just under £4k, after many months of hard saving and trading in my old rusty banger. As it sat on the garage forecourt sparkling at me in a gorgeous blue colour I knew I had found the car for me. With 5 doors and a 1.4 litre petrol engine it was pretty much perfect in terms of running costs - petrol, tax (£65 for 6 months) and insurance, as well as having enough space for getting me from A to B. It used to cost me around £30 a week and I would be doing around 300 miles. The wing mirrors and bumpers were in black so not colour coordinated but this was not a problem for me, especially as the model ... Read the complete review

The 206 is a good looking little car which is why its popular on Uk's roads.The rounded shape and smooth edges is one of its main features.The biggest thing that lets the 206 down is its interior build quality.The Metal effect on the gearlever on sportier models tend to spilt and give you a nasty cut on your hand!.Overall the 206 is not a bad car but there is pleanty other good looking small cars to choose from.I have split the op up into sections(as i usally do!) to make it easier to read. Peformance *** 3 star 3/5 The 1400 cc 206 arrives at 60 mph from a standstill in 12.5 seconds which is not overally immpressive for a ... Read the complete review

From the outside the car looks good. Smooth lines and curves with the little bonnet vent to give it a sporty touch. Inside the car is well equiped with cup holders, pockets and a nifty storage area under the passenger seat. Build quality is okay and I haven't come across any rattles or creaks yet. I've been able to drive a 3 door demo and my mother owns a 5 door 1.4 LX. Strangely the LX doesn't come with ABS as standard so if you want to add it on be prepared to wait for the car to be ABS fitted. My mother had to wait for 4 months to get her car just to get the ABS added. The car comes with a standard single slot CD player ... Read the complete review

Lovely looking car, great to drive but totally unreliable. If you own a 206 just wait for when the 'anti pollution' fault begins. The car will start cutting out for no reason, no diagnostic check will bring up any fault. It can cut out at any speed at anytime, mine cut out on me when I was doing 50mph on a corner, I lost all steering and most of my braking power. Originally the car would only cut out occassionally as I was slowing down and would start itself back up again, but it got progressively worse until the 50mph instant where it did not come back on until I managed to stop and restart the car manually, luckily this was before I drifted into the roudabout that I ...
