Peugeot designed the 206 convertible as the first affordable hard top convertible that offered owners the combination of high functionality and open-air panache. Since Peugeot did not originally intend the 206 for use as a convertible, the car ended up possessing an unusual shape that included minimal boot space. Consumers interested in purchasing a Peugeot 206 convertible should consider the specifications of the available used models.
206 CC 2.0 16v Specifications
The 2.0-litre engine in the Peugeot 206 Convertible produces 138 horsepower, with a torque of 143 newton metres at 4,100-pound feet. This model includes a five-speed manual transmission to helps drivers reach a maximum speed of 200 kilometres per hour within 10 seconds. The 2.0-litre engine gets 50 kilometres per gallon on the highway, which emitting CO2 of 191 grammes per kilometre. Owners enjoy luggage capacity of 175 litres, which comfortably stores the possessions of four adult vacationers. The automaker recommends service intervals for the 2.0-litre model every 32,000 kilometres.
206 CC 1.6 HDI Coupe Specifications
Unlike the 2.0-litre engine powered Peugeot 206 car, the 1.6-litre HDI includes a hardtop roof. Hardtop car roofs do a better job of protecting passengers from flying debris than fabric roof top protection does. The type of roof top is especially important for used Peugeot 206 convertibles. The 1.6 HDI Coupe runs on a 110 horsepower, 180-newton metre torque engine that delivers a robust fuel economy of 80 kilometres per gallon. Peugeot's smaller 206 convertible engine emits less CO2 than the engine used for the 2.0-litre convertible. Peugeot recommends that owners take the 1.6-litre HDI coupe in for service every 20,000 kilometres.
206 CC 1.6 16V Coupe Specifications
The 206 CC 1.6 16V Coupe provides the same engine power as the 1.6 HDI Coupe. However, the 1.6 16V Coupe offers owners two transmission options. The five-speed manual option offers increased acceleration, while the four-speed automatic transmission produces better fuel efficiency. Manual transmission power allows drivers to achieve a speed of nearly 200 kilometres per hour, within 10 seconds. The manual transmission achieves 60 kilometres per gallon fuel efficiency and the automatic surpasses that fuel efficiency to approach 70 kilometres per gallon. Both types of transmissions emit less CO2 than the CO2 emitted by the other two Peugeot 206 convertible models. The fuel tank holds 47 litres of petrol, which allows drivers to extend their uninterrupted driving over the open highway.
