Car reviews - Peugeot - 206 - XT 5-dr hatch
Stand Out Features
6 Feb 2001
By P TIBBLES
THE 206 is a stylish, thoroughly modern car inside and out. Longer, wider and taller than the 205, the 206 has a short, sporty stance with a wheel at each corner and smooth, flowing lines head to tail. Aerodynamic drag measures 0.33Cd. A bulge that extends from each exterior mirror toward the sharply angled, clear lens head lamps accentuates the rounded look. Three square metres of glass can be found across the car, particularly the front windscreen. New windscreen wipers were developed to cope with the vast amount of glass. The front bumper has a large airdam and houses the fog lights (XT and GTi) . The tail lights are decidedly 406ish in their style and high-mounted position.
Did you know?The 206 is built at Peugeot's Mulhouse plant in south-east France and Poissy, west of Paris, Sevel, near Buenos Aires, Argentina, Ryton in the UK and at a new plant in Porto Real, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
