The entire range has been simplified and now adopts new model names - L, S, SE and Executive – thus dropping the existing mid-range LX, Rapier and GLX derivatives. The ‘Family’ Estate models and all V6 petrol versions have been discontinued.
|L:||1.8 petrol and 2.0 litre HDi 90|
|S:||1.8 & 2.0litre petrol, 2.0 litre HDi 90 and 110|
|SE:||2.0litre petrol, 2.0 litre HDi 110, 2.2 HDi 136|
|Executive:||2.0litre HPi, 2.0 litre HDi 110, 2.2 HDi 136|
Like for like, many models have been reduced in price with some ‘Executive’ prices being reduced by up to as much as £1,300.
Black and white satellite navigation is now standard on all S, SE and Executive models. Standard equipment across the range also includes automatic door locking, rear electric window operation and air-conditioning. Additionally, all SE and Executive HDi 110 models are fitted with cruise control and Executive models are fitted with ESP as standard equipment.
All models are now offered with an all-new, burnished aluminium finish central facia. Additionally, each model benefits from a range of new look materials on all door and dashboard ‘inserts’.
The dashboard is further enhanced by the introduction of a new five dial instrument display, with ‘S’ and ‘SE’ derivatives further benefiting from sport white faced dials. The burnished aluminium effect also extends to the dial surrounds.
A variety of new seat trim materials also feature in the enhanced 406 range.
The classic lines of the 406 now feature the addition of new 16" alloy wheels on all S, SE and Executive models while chrome trim now features on the grille surround and exhaust tail pipe.
The estate models also feature a dark tint rear screen, first seen on the stunning 206 SW along with a new, bold, chrome lion tailgate badge.
