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 - 58 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.

Resists depreciation better than some and service intervals are long. Fuel and insurance aren’t cheap but not too bad for a hot hatch.

206 performs reasonably on the eco front. With an average of 195 g/km CO2 across the model line-up, its emissions are fairly standard for a super mini hatchback. It’s worth noting that the line-up does not feature any diesel models, which typically produce less carbon dioxide than petrol engines with similar power outputs. The range is not very frugal, averaging 34 mpg.

The engine should be reliable enough, but they seem to show their age quite quickly both inside and out.
