      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Comfortable drive when you just want something a little nicer than an average runaround.

      This version of the 206 is luxurious for a normally basic and small car. I have to share this car with my mum as she can only drive automatic and I can drive both. The interior is leather so watch out in summer, it burns and you stick to it, but do not fear, the 206 has a fantastic air conditioning system which neutralises the problem entirely within a few seconds. The windows are electric and although there is no sun roof, an electric switch draws back a large panel and reveals a very large glass roof which allows a lot of light in, when my auntie sat in the car, she even got a tan through that roof! Being of automatic transmission, it is not that economical because I find that being in an automatic car you don't have a lot of control over gears and hence how the engine uses fuel, so for this reason and the fact that it is a sporty edition of a 1.6ltr car, a full tank costs about £60. This car is better on longer drives as that is when its true economy shines out and for running around town, it does drink petrol. The boot is quite average size so good for shopping or even for moving into uni. I filled a house worth of stuff in the boot and the back seat and drove the car and the weight did not seem to effect the car as much as the suspension on the 206 is quite low anyway. A word of caution when reverse parking into a drive, is that if you don't get it right and mount the pavement, the mudguards have a tendency to snap off, so for this purpose either be an expert parker or just drive into your drive. Also a word of caution about automatic cars is that the battery has to do a lot more work on them than in manual cars so battery placement every 30 000 miles or so is highly advisable as it was quite annoying when you are stuck somewhere and you have no jump start! Batteries are about £40 so it is worth replacing it for very little hassle, don't bother buying a jumpstart as it will more frequently zero out, the problem will not get better.
