Peugeot 406 History
The Peugeot 406 was first introduced in 1995 and replaced the 405. The 406 is built on the same platform as the Citroen Xantia, and it took many of its design features from its predecessor, the 405. The 406 had a very comprehensive choice of engines, especially their diesel range. This led the 406 diesel versions to become very popular and became one of Europe’s best selling diesel cars.
The 406 received a makeover in 1999 and some much needed safety improvements. The first initial 406 version lacked in safety features and the now improved 406 scored better safety results in the Euro safety tests. A new engine range was introduced, the lights and grille were changed and some improvements to the interior design. The last 406 rolled off the production line in 2004.
There was a wide choice of engines available for this family car. The petrol options were as follows: 1.6, 1.8, 2.0, 2.2 and 3.0 V6. The diesel versions were: 1.9, 2.0, 2.1, 2.2L. The most economical of the available engines is the 2.0 HDi diesel engine which offers up to 51mpg. Always take into consideration the age, fuel type and engine size when determining fuel economy.
