"A quick model with tighter suspension that breaks the soft image of the 206."
In September 1998, the Peugeot 206 debuted at the Paris Salon as the successor to Peugeot's best selling-vehicle, the 205. Peugeot produced many variations of their next generation high volume seller with the S16 hot hatch at the top of the list. Other vehicles included the 4-seater coupe cabriolet CC, the wagon model SW, and the next generation sports car, the RC.
The S16 hot hatch looks like a normal 206, but the very slightly enlarged fenders allow for wider tires. The power unit is a 2.0L DOHC inline-4, producing 138 BHP @ 5800 rpm, and a maximum torque of 135.2 lb-ft @ 4000 rpm; this is combined with a 6-speed MT. The suspension and chassis were tuned for sports and the car possessed exciting handling characteristics, quite the opposite of its soft image.
The main feature of the CC, the 4-seater coupe cabriolet, is its retractable metal hard top which allowed the car to be enjoyed as either a coupe of a cabriolet with the touch of a button. In 2002, it received the same 2.0L engine as the S16, allowing for the same high maneuverability to be enjoyed in the open air.
The SW was a full featured model that allowed you to enjoy the style of the 206 and still have the cargo capacity of a wagon. Choosing the optional 2.0L engine provided the same satisfying sporty feeling of the S16.
In 2003, Peugeot added the RC, which employed a tuned 2.0L DOHC inline-4 version of the S16 engine. The improved engine output was 175 BHP @ 7000 rpm and a maximum torque of 148.9 lb-ft @ 4750 rpm. Fat 205/40R17 tires were included and the chassis was hardened to produced the fastest genuine hot hatch of the 206 series.

- In the demo versions of Gran Turismo 2, this car originally appeared as the Peugeot 206 GTI. While the car kept that name in the NTSC-J version of the game, it is still possible to see references to the previous name in the international versions, specifically in the Arcade Mode car selection screen and in the car's in-game description on the PAL version of the game.
- In GT2, the car's description text mentions a planned limited edition model called "206 Prost", honoring Formula One driver Alain Prost, who was running a Formula One team that ran Peugeot engines in 1999. No records of such car exist (suggesting said edition of the 206 was quietly cancelled), however Peugeot produced a limited edition model named 206 GT with extended bumpers for the sole purpose of homologating the rally car due to regular model's length being below 4000mm as required by WRC regulations.
