Fuel economy

A more stringent standard for fuel economy (WLTP) was introduced from September 2017, and this model was not required to undergo that test. Its fuel economy measured under the previous test system was 32 - 57 mpg. However these figures are less likely to be achievable in real world driving and so should never be compared to another car's mpg which was measured under the newer, more realistic WLTP system.

Enjoys long service intervals, competitive insurance and a frugal couple of engines. Its fashionable status also means it hangs onto its value. Prices for some parts can be expensive.

206 is an environmentally friendly choice for green buyers. With an average of 171 g/km CO2 across the model line-up, its emissions are quite low for a super mini coupe cabriolet. Eco-conscious buyers should consider the 1.6-litre diesel, which is one of the greenest models in the range. The range is also fairly economical, averaging 40 mpg.

The main problems have stemmed from the roof. It may look fancy, but there have been problems reported with its operation (like getting stuck mid-way) and leaks. If you're buying, it's worth testing that it folds away neatly and even testing the seals with a hose-pipe before buying. Engines seem to be lasting well and there haven't been many reports of faulty electronics.
