Which used Peugeot 806 MPV should I buy?
The 806 was initially offered with a 123bhp 2.0-litre petrol engine or a 92bhp 1.9-litre diesel. A more powerful 2.0-litre petrol with 138bhp was introduced in May 2000 and a new 110bhp 2.0-litre diesel replaced the old 1.9-litre unit at the same time.
The 2.0-litre diesel is best because it's smooth, has buckets of pull and doesn't become coarse as the revs rise. As a bonus, you get a CD player and cruise control, items that weren't fitted across the range before May 2000.
Still, every 806 is equipped with electric front windows, remote central locking, and heated power door mirrors. Most models have climate control, too, with the entry-level LX trim the only one to make do with air-con.
The standard front airbags are welcome, but disappointingly side and curtain 'bags weren't even available on high-specification cars. On the security front, deadlocks, marked parts and an engine immobiliser help to deter thieves.
