Since its introduction in 2001 the Peugeot 206 CC has won the hearts of more UK convertible buyers than any other model. It has remained the number one selling convertible car in the UK for three consecutive years (2002 to 2004).
The Peugeot 206 CC was the first car to bring the electric folding roof to the volume car market at an affordable price. So successful has been the Peugeot 206 CC concept that it has now been joined by a whole host of similar cars. This is just reward for Peugeot who pioneered the electric "folding" roof back in 1933 with the Peugeot 401 Eclipse.
In 2004 8,848 vehicles were sold making it again the top selling convertible car in the UK. Due to this success the coupe-cabriolet now represents nearly 10.2% of total 206 registrations in the UK (9% in Europe).
With worldwide sales of almost 300,000 vehicles and UK sales of 35,329 vehicles since launch the 206 CC continues to go from strength to strength.
This successful formula, however, will not stand still in 2005. The Geneva Motor Show will see the first public appearance of an all new 206 CC powered by a 1.6 litre HDi diesel engine producing 110 bhp.
This 1.6 litre HDi 110 bhp diesel engine provides dynamic performance levels of 0 to 62 in 10.5 seconds and a top speed of 116 mph, but still returns over 57.6 mpg on the combined cycle.
Following in the footsteps of the 206 GTI HDi 110, the 206 CC HDi is also fitted with Peugeot’s diesel particulate filter system.
The 206 CC HDi will join the range in April 2005.
The current 206 CC range is available in three trim levels with either a 1.6 or 2.0 litre petrol engine and an automatic gearbox option on the 1.6 litre is available.
The range starts at only £14,920 for the 1.6 litre S going up to £15,995 for the Allure 2.0 litre with leather interior as standard.
