Which used Peugeot 206 coupe should I buy?

When launched, the 206 CC came with only two engines: a 110bhp 1.6 better suited to cruising than straight-line speed and a far more potent 138bhp 2.0-litre which feels fast in comparison. However, given the nature of the car, the 1.6 is the better bet, although the engine can start to boom when you work it hard.

If you're looking to buy a newer car, a 1.6 110bhp diesel was introduced in 2005. It might not feel that fast, but it's good on motorways and has great fuel-economy.

The only automatic option was available on the 1.6 petrol engine, but it's not the most reliable and dents the already slowish performance - so it's worth avoiding.

There are only two trim levels, but even base models are well equipped, and top-end models have leather trim and climate control.
