Peugeot 406 Coupe (1997 - 2003)

Last updated 8 June 2017


Model Timeline

Jawdropping Pininfarina styling. One of the best looking cars in the world. Better looking than more expensive Volvo C70 and Mercedes CLK. A truly beautiful car.

Plenty of room for four passengers. Big boot. Airconditioning a more sensible option than sunroof.

2.0 litre versions go and handle like a sports car: Much better than 406 saloon.

3.0 litre V6 has four-pot Brembo front brake callipers. Hold their value reasonably well. 3-year warranty from January 2000. Bodies are galvanized, so should keep their looks. 

Re-named Peugeot Coupe instead of 406 Coupe. 136bhp 2.2 HDi diesel version with 235lb ft (315Nm) torque and 129mph top speed from June 2001. Became the most popular Peugeot Coupe. 

New 160bhp 2.2 16v petrol engine from April 2002 replaced 2.0 litre. Develops an extra 23lb ft torque, gets to 60 in 9 seconds, goes on to 135mph, does 32.1mpg on the combined cycle and emits 210g/km CO2. Prices are £20,995 for the S and £23,495 for the more luxurious SE. 

Peugeots generally had below average warranty repair costs in 2003 Warranty Direct Reliability index (index 86.25 v/s lowest 31.93). Link:- 99% of cars up to 2 years old breakdown-free over previous 12 months in 2004 Which? survey.
