When the Peugeot 207 was released, the 206 was not retired and was instead repositioned as a new entry level car and continues to be sold in many markets, especially emerging markets such as South America. The 206 also continues to be sold here in Malaysia as the Naza 206 Bestari.
Peugeot has given the 206 a fresh look with the new Peugeot 206 Plus, which essentially facelifts the 206 to have a similiar front end to the 207 and other Peugeot models. This means larger more feline headlamps and that wide gaping mouth grille. Engine options include a 60 horsepower 1.1L petrol engine, a 75 horsepower 1.4 litre petrol engine, and a 1.4 litre HDi diesel with 70hp. The interior design gets updated with a look that resembles the 207’s dashboard.
The 206 Plus is manufactured in France for the core European market. It’s actually already available in some emerging markets, for example it is called the Peugeot 207 Mercosur in South America.
