Peugeot 206 SE
With the Peugeot 206 SE you get a solid trim level on this hugely likeable small hatchback that comes as a 3 or 5 door, has a good kit list and bags of character. It’s excellent value for money and really does want to be driven everyday, which makes it ideal for families, people on tight budgets, new drivers and urbanites. A rewarding experience out on the road, excellent practicality and notable safety and reliability scores mean there’s a lot to be impressed with, and the 1.4 to 1.6 litre petrol engines, along side the 1.6 to 2.0 litre diesels definitely offer some punch.
Stylish, quirky and interesting to look at from any angle, the Peugeot 206 SE really does stand out from the crowd. And while it might be a few years old, what you’ll find is that it competes with the latest and greatest quite well. Obviously it’s more value oriented, but the cabin is spacious and comfortable, and kit includes the likes of steel wheels, CD sound system, climate control, cloth sports seats, electric windows, mirrors and sunroof, remote central locking and a plethora of airbags. 237 litres makes up the boot. It’s rewarding and perky to drive, and enjoys pottering around or having a good go on back roads. The overall experience and £2,000 used price tag will make you smile.
