Car Review: Peugeot - 406  Series 96 (2 stars)

Average. Peugeot's spacious family car is a stylish alternative to mainstream rivals. It's getting old now but still looks good and is a comfortable, rewarding drive.

The 406 is a big, roomy family saloon that is long overdue for a facelift. It still looks great - especially the sleek Coupe - but struggles to compete in other ways with the latest Ford Mondeo. The interior is a little behind the times too, although there's plenty of it. Despite its large dimensions, the Peugeot is a surprisingly good drive, especially when fitted with the 2.2 HDi diesel engine. Estate models are enormous although, like the rest of the range, they suffer badly from depreciation. A new 406 is due soon, so bargain hard on the forecourt.
