PSA reveals additions to new three-cylinder engine family

By / 5 years ago / Latest News / No Comments

Developed in-house, and not shared with any other manufacturers, PSA's new three-cylinder petrol and diesel engines debut on the Peugeot 208, which is an average of 110kg lighter than the 207 it replaces from June. The first 99g/km 1.0 and 104g/km 1.2-litre petrol units will be available from September.

Start/stop will be introduced as an option on the 1.2 starting in early 2013, bringing CO2 emissions down to 95g/km, but will not be offered on the 1.0-litre petrol engine. All of the car's e-HDI diesel units are fitted with start/stop. 

Peugeot said it was also working on a turbocharged three-cylinder unit, with an unconfirmed release date. This could also be used in larger models, similar to downsized petrol engines forthcoming from Ford and Renault.@PREVIEWEND@

The 208 will be available in the UK from the end of June, with a UK debut at the Fleet World EV and Low CO2 Fleet Show, being held at Silverstone Circuiton the 18th April. For more information, CLICK HERE.
