Peugeot 206+ facelifted, refuses to die
The striking Peugeot 206 first debuted sometime back in 1999, if I remember correctly. The quick-handling hatchback looked good then and it still looks good today. Its replacement, the 207, was launched more than a year ago, but Peugeot decided to continue 206 production side-by-side since it continued to be popular. In a sign that the 206 is not going away anytime soon, Peugeot has done the unthinkable, facelifting an obsolete model. It is now called the Peugeot 206+, and it debuted at the 2009 Geneva Auto Show.
Available in 3-door and 5-door trims, petrol engines include a 60 hp 1.1-litre and a 75 hp 1.4-litre, both 4-cylinder units. Changes include reshaped bumpers, front fenders and all lights. It is possible this new model will debut in Dubai and the GCC by the end of this year, to fill up rental fleets.
