To design a worthy successor to the beloved 405, Peugeot heavily invested in creating a more refined and elegant line. In this way, after five years of planning and development, the Peugeot 406 came onto the market in 1995. A classic Sedan, a spirited Coupe, and a spacious Break were the variants available. Its structure is the same as the Citroen Xantia. Many aesthetic details such as the very thin headlights come from the Peugeot flagship of the time, the 605. The new interior, just like the new exterior, is now more detailed. The finishes are of a good standard, and there are many storage compartments. The suspension of the 406 offers multilink technology in the rear and MacPherson technology in the front. Initially, the engines range from 88 to 109 horsepower, but a few years later a 190HP sports version arrives. In 1999, the Sedan and Break versions are subject to an aesthetic redesign, while the Coupe receives an upgrade in 2003. The 406 had to face a market full of top-level rivals, such as the BMW 3 Series E46 and the Alfa Romeo 156 but obtained a fair commercial success, also because the French police officially used this car. In 2005, the production of this vehicle comes to an end.
