    A little confused...

    I was just browsing the Pug' webiste (the australian one) and looking through the 206 range of acessories, etc... anyway in the model range the say the 206XR 5 door is a 1.4 liter. Is this new? I have a 5 door XR and it's a 1.6 16v engine. I bought it back in 2000.

    Can any1 shed light on this, I thought all or most 206 5door XR's in this country were 1.6 liter.

    just looked at my cars details.

    It has a built date of November 1999, delivered to the dealer in late February 2000. 1.6 litre engine.

    They switched to the 1.4 litre engine in either the 2001 or 2002 model year I think (probably along with when they introduced the new trip computer etc. ?)

    You definitely are correct in that the XR used to have a 1.6 8-valve engine (which was then later replaced with a 16-valve version shortly afterwards)

    One of my friends has a quite new (within the last 12-18 months) 206 XR 1.4 5 door. He's very happy with the car - although it's obviously no performance machine. Still corners amazingly and all the usual 206 stuff.

    I'd say the pick of the bunch in the 206 fleet at the moment is the new 206XRS as they call it... 3 door with the 1.6 16v engine. It's light and got the best compromise engine wink It's also cheap - $22 000 or $23 000

    nbj,

    If your car has a NOV99 build date, I suspect you have the 1.6 8V - the TU5JP. The 16V motor was introduced in 2001 and it's quite zippy in the 206, not that much slower than the 2.0 16V actually. With the engine update, power jumped from 67kW to 82kW and torque increased a little bit. Acceleration was significantly improved as well as fuel consumption. Autos with the 1.6 16V arrived quite some time after the manuals, which hurt sales.

    Peugeot introduced the 206 XR 1.4 five door early last year at $19,990, I guess to be its "Cliobuster". The 1.6 16V 206 XR 5 door was sold during the early part of last year. There aren't many of these muxed 1.6 16V 5 door XRs. Apart from popping the bonnet, the easiest way to tell is from the multi function display on top of the dash.

    In the 1.4 XRs you have a simple single line display, whereas in the 1.6 16V XRs you have the full size display with trip computer, outside temperature, etc, similar to that in the C5, 406 and 307.

    The 3 door XR still has the 1.6 16V. The 1.6 is quite a bit more gutsy than the 1.4, but hey - 80-82kW is a little more than 55kW Both are fairly noisy compared to their installations in others cars (eg. C3 & 307) and equivalents in the Clio (love that Clio 1.4 16 valver compared to the rudimentary PSA eight valver )

    Hope that was informative.

    Cheers,

    Justin

    Hey Guys,
    That 1.6 16v is the same one in my Xsara, the TU5JP4. I've got to say that I am impressed, It goes damn fine for a 1.6 especially once you get the revs up.

    It's a manual though ... the 1.6 ltr loan 206 I have today (my car is in for servicing) is a slug ... the engine seems to labour with the gear box .. the 1.4 manual I had last time was really happy to go along.

    I thought the 1.6A 206 went reasonably well, but generally small engines don't mate well to auto boxes - torque at high revs and an auto are not a match in heaven.

    Just to give you an idea of the difference between the 1.6 8V & 16V, here are some pics.

    TU5JP - 1.6 8V

    <img src="http://www.esscargo.com.au/assets/images/206_1.6_8v_Air_Intake_1.jpg" alt=" - " />

    TU5JP4 - 1.6 16V

    <img src="http://users.bigpond.net.au/skystar/peugeot307/307tu5jp4-s.jpg" alt=" - " />

    As you can see, they look reasonably different. The old 8V engine actually looks quite similar to the 1.4 8V in the C3 & 206.

    Cheers,
