If you’re struggling to find that perfect Valentine’s Day gift for your loved one, Peugeot has the answer - an ideal gift for him or her - the Peugeot 206 Coupé Cabriolet (CC) and 307CC.
Over 15,700 people fell in love with either the 206CC or 307CC last year, making Peugeot the most popular make of open-top car on the UK’s roads. In fact more 206CCs were sold than any other type of convertible car, with sales of almost 9,000 cars.
The stylish good looks, great handling and revolutionary electric folding metal roof have combined to make the Peugeot 206CC number one for the second year running, with its electric roof offering owners convenience and security by folding efficiently and snugly into the boot in just seconds.
The Peugeot 206CC is available in three trim levels, S, SE or Allure with either a 1.6 litre or 2.0 litre petrol engine. The 1.6 litre engine generates 110 bhp at 5,800 rpm and the 2.0 litre 138 bhp at 6,000 rpm, and is available with a five speed manual or four speed ‘tiptronic’ automatic gearbox. Prices start at £14,920 on the road for the 1.6 S model.
The 307CC is available with a 1.6 litre 110 bhp, 2.0 litre 138 bhp unit or the high performance 2.0 litre, 180 bhp engine. The 2.0 litre 138 bhp model is also available with a four speed ‘tiptronic’ gearbox. It can seat four people comfortably and is one of the safest convertibles in its class with four airbags and an automatic roll over protection system. Prices for the 307CC start at £16,995 on the road for the 1.6 variant.
With good looks, great handling and bags of style, either model is the perfect way to say ‘I love you’ this Valentine’s Day.Published 29 January 2005
