Peugeot 206 Sport
The Peugeot 206 Sport is a great little hatchback that really does offer some zip and holds loads of appeal for a wide range of drivers. Available in 3 or 5 door versions, it’s stylish, quirky, decently equipped and a lot of fun to drive. Positioned towards the top end of trims, it’s quite practical and usable, but very safe and reliable. Exactly what you’d expect of a motor from the French marque, the joie de vivre is there, as is the confidence. You’ll find 1.4 and 1.6 litre petrols as well as 1.6 litre diesels under the bonnet, so a lively on road experience is coming your way.
With its fun and funky shape and angles, the Peugeot 206 Sport looks the part, and delivers exactly what you’d want. A solid list of kit includes everything from air con to alloy wheels, decent sound system, material sports seats, remote locking, full airbags, electric components and front fog lights; add in a 237 litre boot and the practical element is definitely there too. The cabin is spacious, welcoming and comfortable enough in the back for kids, so an everyday runabout it certainly is. Out on the tarmac it lives up to its Sport badge and is very impressive to drive, with lots of grip in the corners, responsive handling and more than enough pace. Get one for £4,000 used.
