About Peugeot 206


The Peugeot 206 was much anticipated at launch, as the replacement for the acclaimed 205.

Introduced in 1998 with 1124cc, 1360cc and 1580cc 'XU' petrol engines and a 1868cc 'DW' diesel engine. 3 and 5 door versions are available.

In 1999, a 1997cc turbodiesel was introduced (HDI). There is also a 1997cc 16v GTi model and a cabriolet.

All models have independent front suspension and rear semi-independent trailing arm suspension with torsion bars.

Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) Positions

If in doubt about whether a part is the right one for your car, the VIN can help. We may ask you for the VIN number to identify the exact age or model of your car.

The following diagram shows you where to find the VIN number for your Peugeot. It is in two places: attached to the bodyshell on a plate (this may also show other information such as the paint colour) and also stamped into the bodyshell.

Information common to all Peugeot 206 models:
- Front wheel drive
- 4 cylinder Overhead Cam (OHC)
