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 - 64 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 range of engines plus its resistance to depreciation is better than average. Prices for some parts can be expensive.

206 is an environmentally friendly model. With an average of 149 g/km CO2 across the model line-up, its emissions are comparably low for a super mini estate. However, it’s worth noting that the line up has a high number of diesel models, bringing the average down and giving buyers more choices of low-emission versions. Diesels typically produce less CO2 than petrol engines with similar power outputs.

Eco-conscious buyers should consider the 1.4-litre diesel, which is one of the greenest models in the range. The range is impressively frugal, averaging 49 mpg.

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.
