What's the used Peugeot 206 coupe like?

When the Peugeot 206 CC was launched, the only other car available with a folding metal and glass roof was the Mercedes SLK, and that cost at least £28,000. This gave the 206 CC celebrity status, and dealers couldn't sell cars fast enough. However, the type of roof is all these two cars have in common. If you're expecting a mini-Merc with a budget price, prepare for disappointment.

Build quality is questionable and it's cramped inside. Don't be fooled by the bucket seats in the back - this is really big enough for only two.

The CC might be based on the 206 GTI, but it's a cruiser, not a bruiser. With the roof up, it drives like a conventional supermini hatchback, but lower it and the body starts to flex, which ruins the handling. There's loads of wind and road noise, even with the roof up, and it's difficult to get comfortable.
