What Car? says

3 out of 5 stars

For It's tastefully styled, has fluent handling, and is quick and practical

Against The interior is uninspiring, it's poorly made and unwieldy around town

Verdict The 406 Coupe is good if you want something different

Go for… 3.0-litre V6 SE

Avoid… Early 2.0-litre petrols

Peugeot 406 Coupe
  • 1. If you hear a clonking from the front corner, the anti-roll bar may need replacing
  • 2. Watch out for leaky radiators with signs of rust and worn hoses
  • 3. The seating is uncomfortable, the switchgear cheap-looking and the dashboard plasticky
  • 4. You can seat two in the back with few dramas. The car has a sizeable boot, too
  • 5. Avoid any car that smokes and be suspicious if the car's history is incomplete
