Peugeot extends and enhances fleet line-up

PEUGEOT is to introduce two more 'launched-for-retail' models into its 2001-year fleet sales catalogue along with a raft of 'value-added' specification enhancements.

Slotting in between the 1.1 and 1.6-litre petrol options, the 106 1.4 Quiksilver is priced at £9,995 on-the-road. A 206 Style will be available from July and a passenger airbag has been added to 206 LX specification, which starts at £9,125 for the 1.1-litre model, while the HDI 90 D turbo, from £12,775, gains a passenger airbag and ABS.

Improvements to the £14,020 206 GTi include an aluminium filler cap, 16-inch alloy wheels, a short rear aerial and side airbags. The 306 Meridian - available in saloon or estate format from - includes 15-inch alloy wheels on everything other than the £11,9951.4-litre petrol entry model, as well as rear electric windows. Higher up the range the 306 GLX cost-free add-ons are sports style front seats, CD autochanger and 15-inch alloy wheels.

Side airbags and rear electric windows are offered with all 406 models, starting at £15,395, while those from LX upwards get front armrests and a Peugeot 'kick plate'. The GLX now has electric seats, while the GTX gains a CD autochanger as well as the instrument panel previously confined to V6 models. A revised 2.0-litre petrol engine has been brought in for the 806 people carrier, priced from £17,390 in LX trim.

Peugeot, third in the fleet sales chart after Ford and Vauxhall, saw sales increase by 11.6% year-on-year in May. The manufacturer's fleet marketing manager, Arnold Bailey, said: 'The fleet sector has been central to the decisions on specification changes, all of which have been carefully considered to provide an excellent combination of increased driver choice and comfort along with additional cost savings.'
