The Peugeot 206 van is expected to go on sale in October, with a starting price of 'below £8,000', and a similar specification to the car models. The French manufacturer says the new vehicle takes up where the 205 van left off in 1994, re-introducing the larger diesel engine to the small vehicle in its van range. Powered by a 70bhp 1.9-litre diesel engine, the 206 van's standard specification includes power steering, driver airbag, immobiliser, remote control stereo radio/cassette, height adjustable steering column, and a half-height cargo stop.
The Land Rover Freelander van, offering a choice of 1.8-litre petrol and 2.0-litre diesel engines, goes on sale in September at just over £15,000. Standard specification includes permanent four-wheel- drive, driver's airbag, alarm system with immobiliser, height adjustable steering column, electric front windows and radio cassette unit with detachable key pad. Four-channel ABS with Electronic Traction Control and Hill Descent Control is optional.
