I've used Ethylene Glycol Red Coolant mix for past 11 years and all good.
If you buy the concentrated then I believe it 50/50 water mix.
Mine is a 2ltr petrol.

Do you have service history of the car?
Do you know if it's still running it's original coolant?
Never mix unknown coolant types as they will run the risk of 'gelling'
and block up the system.

If it is still running the factory type coolant then use the Peugeot
specific Technic2000 concentrated coolant mixed with 50% de-mineralised
water.

Otherwise....if you don't know it's history, the safest way is to completely drain
and flush old coolant and use a good quality Ethylene Glycol coolant.
Here in Australia the best is either Penrite or Nulon.

Just give your local motor factor the registration number of your car and they will give you the antifreeze you need.
I wouldn't buy the ready mixed stuff, it's an expensive way of buying water imo, but it is convenient for a completely drained system.
