Which used Peugeot 206 estate should I buy?

You're best off with the 110bhp 1.6 HDi engine, which is powerful and punchy. However, this appeared only in later cars.

If you're considering an earlier model then plump for the 2.0 HDi. You only get 90bhp, but that's better than you'll get from most of the petrol engines in the range, and it's enough to make decent progress while still giving good fuel economy.

Don't bother with the 1.1 or 1.4 petrol engines - they're just too slow. The 1.6 and 2.0 petrols are much better, but the diesel gives more low-down punch and better running costs. There's also a 1.4 diesel - it's not bad, but you'll enjoy yourself more with the bigger diesel.

Low-spec models don't get that much in the way of kit, especially in early cars, but XT trim will give you all you need.
