Peugeot 206 +
Peugeot, a major player on the small and medium car segment, is expanding its range with the 206+, the descendant of almost 6.5 million 206 produced since 1998. This vehicle, with genetic codes renowned worldwide, rounds off the Lion marque's range.
A "range entry product"
The 206+ is thus a "range entry" product, in line with clients' expectations: a benchmark car, modern and modernised, and above all accessible to as many people as possible, without compromising its appeal. Its interior has been designed with care, with a new "wave-look" dashboard and decorative touches that evoke the motorcycle world.
Its external style is resolutely modern, taking inspiration from the 207's stylish facade. A new bonnet, a new radiator grille and new headlights highlight this stronger personality.
Manufactured in France for the European market
Manufactured in France, at the Mulhouse factory, the 206+ is intended for the core European market. It offers a range of engine options, with a 1.1 l petrol engine developing 44 kW (60 bhp) and a 1.4 l developing 55 kW (75 bhp), as well as a 1.4 l HDi Diesel engine developing 50 kW (70 bhp), keeping the carbon footprint under control thanks to CO2 emissions as low as 110 g/km.
WIth its size and its price/equipment ratio, the 206+ takes its rightful place in the Peugeot range between the 107, 1007 and 207.
This intelligently-tiered range achieves a good balance, between the little urban runabout and the the versatile small family car that is quite at ease on roads and motorways:
107, accessible friendly car, good for town driving and competitively priced; 1007, innovative concept for a variety of uses thanks to its two electric sliding doors;
207, with its three bodyshapes and its strong, stylish look, offers a wide-ranging clientele a high level of options and excellent road handling.
The 206+ thus picks up the torch behind the 206, the key model of the Peugeot range, with a strong international image, and will appeal to clients with its feline allure, its architecture and its reasonably-priced equipment level.
