Peugeot 406 Review
This is sponsored post by Jiji;
Peugeot is a world`s famous French brand. It is known for its unique design with plenty of elegant curves.The 406 is not an exception. It was presented in 1996 as a successor to the popular 205 model, and was slightly larger than its predecessor, offering much more space.
Peugeot cars are known as cars that are comfortable for traveling for long distances. The enlarged interior space makes it a popular choice for those who enjoy long journeys, as you can put here plenty of luggage, a spare wheel, etc.
Main differences between the 205 and the 206 models are reduced noise level, improved stability, and better comfort. In general, Peugeot cars have a reputation of very reliable cars.In 2004 the Peugeot 407 replaced the 406 model. Competition to the 406 comes in the form of its predecessor and successor, the 405 and 407 respectively.
Engine specifications and performance
The 406 came to market with a 4-cylinder 2.0L double overhead camshaft engine, giving 100 kW at 5500 rpm and 187 Nm at 4200 rpm, powered via the front wheels. The engine is relatively modest given the overall size and weight of the car and consequently feels a little as though it has to work relatively hard to deliver. An alternative option is the 3.0L V6, which gives a more sprightly 144 kW at 5500 rpm and 267 Nm of torque at 4000rpm. Both models were offered with a choice of 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic transmission.
Fuel economy varies from model to model but it is generally somewhere between 7.0L/100km on the open road and nearer 9.0L/100km in town.
A diesel model came to market in 1998, which remains a decent choice if fuel prices are a factor in your buying decision. The turbo diesel option was a 2.1L 8-valve single overhead camshaft engine giving 82kW of power at 4300 rpm backed up by an impressive 251 Nm of torque at 200rpm, upgraded to a 1.9L HDi turbo diesel in 1999.
The 406 cruises comfortably in traffic around town and equally so out on the open road. The suspension swallows up very effectively minor road bumps and general changes in terrain, providing a comfortable ride all round. Behind the wheel, it is smooth and responsive right through the rev range. Braking is smooth and progressive yet powerful nonetheless when a quick response is required.
