PROS

High levels of equipment, neatly styled, fun handling

CONS

Build quality issues, awkward pedals and poor driving position, slack gearchange

Verdict

Thanks to its stylish lines and youthful image the 206 has proved a big hit. Easy to drive with light controls, it is ideal for tackling urban routes and although some of the engines are a little lethargic, it's happy pottering along the motorway too. However it's desperately showing it's age - especially compared to the newer 207 and the awkward driving position, cramped rear and lack of refinement are only half the story.

The scratchy plastics on the dash and flimsy build quality do it few favours either. But the 206 remains a good used buy - it's cheap to run, mechanically sound and the styling still looks good even after ten years on sale.
