The Peugeot 206 has become even better value for money with the announcement of price reductions of up to 8.3 per cent.
Sime Darby Automobiles, the New Zealand concessionaire for Peugeot, has reduced the recommended retail price of the entry-level 1.4-litre XR manual version of the 206 by $2,000 to $21,990.
In automatic form, the 206 XR five-door hatchback is now $23,990, a 7.7 per cent reduction on the previous price of $25,990.
The high performance three-door Peugeot 206 GTi 180, powered by a lusty 2-litre double overhead camshaft engine, is 7.5 per cent less expensive, with its price falling from $39,990 to $36,990.
In time for the summer market, the 206 CC coupe cabriolet, is now priced at $39,990, a 7.0 per cent reduction on the previous retail of $42,990. This new price applies to both 5-speed manual and four-speed automatic transmission versions.
The 206 has been a huge success story and, with more than five million sales, is about to set an all-time production record for a Peugeot model. The 205 model currently holds this record at 5,278,000.
Well established as Europe's best-selling vehicle from 2000 to 2003, the 206 is still the leading model for sales in its segment. It is also Europe's top-selling diesel car in the small model category.
Reflecting the international appeal of the model, 82 per cent of production was exported last year. The 206 is manufactured or assembled at six sites worldwide and is sold in 145 countries.
Eight versions are sold in New Zealand, with the choice of three body configurations that include a sporty hatch and a unique for the class CC coupe cabriolet with electrically operated opening steel roof.
