DRIVETIME: MOTORING: Peugeot piles on the extras and cuts prices on the 406.

PEUGEOT has introduced a host of specification enhance-ments and drastic price cuts to help its 406 family model compete against newer rivals.

The range has been simplified and now adopts new model names of L, S, SE and Executive, while dropping the mid-range LX, Rapier and GLX derivatives. The Family estate models and all V6 petrol versions have also been discontinued.

The new range consists of:

L: 1.8-litre petrol and 2.0-litre HDi 90 S: 1.8-litre & 2.0-litre litre petrol, 2.0-litre HDi 90 and 110 SE: 2.0-litre petrol, 2.0-litre HDi 110, 2.2-litre HDi 136 Executive: 2.0-litre HPi, 2.0-litre HDi 110, 2.2-litre HDi 136

In the process, some Executive prices are cut by as much as pounds 1,300 while monochrome satellite navigation becomes standard on all S, SE and Executive models.

Standard equipment includes automatic door locking, rear electric window operation and air-conditioning. Additionally, all SE and Executive HDi 110 models are fitted with cruise control, and Executive models get ESP as standard equipment.

All models are now offered with a burnished aluminium finish fascia. Each model gets new materials on all door and dashboard inserts. There are new 16-inch alloy wheels on all S, SE and Executive models, and chrome trim on the grille surround and exhaust tail pipe. The estates feature a dark tint rear screen.
