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 35 - 65 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.

The little Peugeot enjoys long service intervals, competitive insurance and a frugal range of engines. Its resistance to depreciation is better than average but prices for some parts can be expensive.

The 206 is a fairly environmentally-friendly model and with an average of 143g/km of CO2 across the model line-up, its emissions are comparably low for a small car. Eco-conscious buyers should consider the 1.4-litre diesel, which is one of the greenest models in the range emitting 116g/km of CO2 and averaging 64mpg.

The 206 tends to be mechanically durable and old Peugeots have a reputation for lasting well, but it will get a bit tatty with age as interior materials are rather cheap. There have been numerous recalls too, so it's worth checking with VOSA and making sure that any potential purchase has had the necessary work carried out.
