Peugeot 806 (1995 – 2003) Review

Peugeot 806 (1995 – 2003) At A Glance


+Economical 110bhp HDi. Handy sliding rear doors and a well-designed, airy cabin.

-Doesn't drive as well as a Galaxy, Sharan or Alhambra. Some mechanical problems and many have led hard lives.

When it comes to moving people, the Peugeot 806 (and its siblings the Citroen Synergie and Fiat Ulysse) makes sense because it can carry up to seven people and has sliding doors.

Power comes from either the 2.0-litre petrol or a 1.9-litre diesel, in various power guises. Engines are fairly reliable if properly serviced, but neither is particularly potent. Then again, this MPVs high centre of gravity means that driver involvement isn't really high on the list.

Unlike space and storage. A dash-mounted gearstick means that there's no transmission tunnel to take up passenger space, and there are cubby holes for stowing your goodies everywhere. And while it might not be the most hard-wearing interior, the car itself is pretty robust.
