Considering one of these...

YES, I know this is a Ford Forum!! but I want to know what people think about these two cars (Peugeot 206CC and the 206 GTi) I know they are not big V8 beasts but the way fuel prices are going (and the way the Falcon depreciates these days) I am looking at alternatives.

Has anyone here ever owned/had experience with a Peugeot and what are they like

206CC...(these cars are a modded to be a bit ricerish!!)



They look pretty damn good modded!!


Not looking for anything seriously yet but maybe in the near future...for those who don't know, the GTi has a 2L 100kW motor!! that has a 0-100km sprint of 8.9 seconds, but a new GTi next year will have 133kW motor that should have more respectable times.



and the 206GTi...

My Mum in N.Z has a 206 4 door.Very small car,but there are
bigger brothers.For a 1600.. engine that thing went very well torque!!
I can only assume the gti would go real well!
Finish and fit was excellent..
Price was right too...

anything i have ever heard about peugots has always been good. apparantly they go for about twice as long as anything.

considered a mi16 once and spoke to a few guys who reckon they are sensational.

I think you are right there Gerry

Yeah, a 206GTi would be a nice little jigger to chuck around the place and have some fun with I reckon! I've also heard good stuff about Peugeot reliability and build quality; but again, don't quote me on that as I have no firsthand experience with them.

It depends on what you're going to use the car for!
If you'll have more than 2 people in the car more than 50% of the time, dont even think about the 206 CC. It really should be a 2 seater because you'll probably only fit 5 year old kids at the back. But they're a great cruise car especially since it's convertible. In my opinion, all you need to do is put side skirts, maybe larger rims and lower it! That's all the mod it needs (in my opinion).

The GTi definitely has heaps more room and more grunt. I've seen one with the above modifications and the rally spoiler! Man, do I want that vehicle. Apparently, you can't get the rally spoiler in Australia.....yet. Hmm...i reckon that guy (or gal) has some very good contacts within peugeot!

Either way I don't think you'll go wrong. Peugoet have been around for along time so you shouldn't have any problems. One thing I would recommend is that you check how much servcing is going to cost as well as parts, on top of that insurance (being a two door "hot hatch"). Another one worth having a look at is the Renault Clio Sport 2.0l 124kw, 0-100 7.2sec 1/4 mile 15.3sec (according to wheels mag).

Either way they handle like go carts!!

Gr8 little cars but there very very small Pugs last for ever if your willing to over look trim & little bits & pieces falling off & squeaks etc.
Handle awesome but a strange pedal layout means many people aren't comfortable in them but overall I've got too say I am a fan

Don't pug own a fairshare of Nissan ???
I found the pedal layout o/k.
The 4 door can fit bigish maybe not
too tall people in the back.But we didn't
travel too far..Had low torque similar
to v.w Polo but was more revable..
Initial turn in on corners was good for
front wheel drive..Car was new didn't
extent it much..Real "womans" car..i.m.o
