First launched in 1998, the 206 subcompact car turned out to be a very successful model and the 6.5 million units sold are the best proof.
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 75 bhp, as well as a 1.4 l HDi Diesel engine developing 70 bhp, keeping the carbon footprint under control thanks to CO2 emissions as low as 110 g/km.
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.
