The Peugeot 406 was a large family car from the French automaker Peugeot from 1995 to 2004. Available in sedan, station wagon and coupé bodystyles with a choice of gasoline or turbodiesel engines, the 406 replaced the Peugeot 405 in Peugeot's lineup, and was itself replaced by the Peugeot 407. It used the same platform as the Citroën Xantia, though without that car's sophisticated hydropneumatic suspension system.
The diesel versions were very popular, and the 406 became one of Europe's best-selling diesel-powered cars. Initially, the car was available with 1.8 L and 2.0 L gasoline and 1.9 L turbodiesel engines, followed by a 110 bhp 2.1 L turbodiesel, turbocharged 2.0 L and 3.0 L gasoline V6 engines. The 2-door coupé was both designed and built by Italian designer Pininfarina, with choices of a 2.0 L 4-cylinder engine or a 3.0 L V6, and from 2001, a 2.2 L HDi diesel engine.
The 406 was notably successful in the UK, where it was built in the factories inherited from Chrysler Europe. It broke into the key UK fleet sales market, with 90 percent of units becoming company cars.

Design quirks and oddities
The 406 sedan was featured in the French Taxi movie series. In Taxi the 406 was simply a modified 3.0 V6 capable of tremendous speed; in Taxi 2 the car had pop-out wings to aid aerial movement, such as when the car "jumps" over French army tanks trying to block its escape; in Taxi 3, the 406 is further upgraded to be able to travel in icy terrain; The fourth movie Taxi 4 features a 407 instead. 
According to the Herald Sun, a 1997 Peugeot 406 Coupe is considered a modern collectable. The car, priced at $75,750 AUD when new can be had for $9,900 to $12,100 AUD.
