106 Britain's Best Selling City Car

Peugeot’s smallest car, the 106 hatchback, has come top of the rapidly expanding city car sales league according to figures released by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders.

In 1998 sales of the 106 hit a record 51,000 cars putting it comfortably ahead of its nearest city car rival and perfectly complementing the successful launch of its larger sibling - the Peugeot 206.

Pert styling, compact proportions and hatchback versatility make the Peugeot 106 ideal urban transport, but it is the budget priced Zest range of 106s which has really caught the public’s eye.

Over 25,000 new owners took possession of a 106 Zest last year.

The Zest range was introduced nine months ago and was designed to appeal to a growing group of metropolitan customers who are demanding stylish small cars at more affordable prices.

The 1999 Zest range has been upgraded to offer even better value.

It now consists of seven separate models offering 3 or 5-door flexibility, a choice of petrol or diesel engines and three different levels of specification.

You can drive away a 3-door Zest for 7,120 which, currently, includes one year’s car insurance and 12 months’ road fund licence.

It is powered by a lively but economical 1.1 litre, 60bhp, petrol engine, coupled to a five speed gearbox.

Fuel consumption is an impressive 42.2 mpg for the mixed urban/out of town driving cycle.

Side impact absorbent padding, pyrotechnically pretensioned seat belts, tinted glass and a double angled driver’s door mirror come as part of a standard 106 safety package.

Specification levels on all Zest models are high and include internally adjustable door mirrors, height adjustable front head restraints, an underseat stowage tray, front door stowage bins, stereo radio/cassette, transponder engine immobiliser and visible security VIN numbers.

Prices of 106 Zests range from 7,120 to 8,870 on the road.

The special edition 106 Quiksilver and the high performance 106GTi complete the 106 line up for 1999.
