PureTech Engine : Compact for an Enhanced Efficiency

Peugeot PureTech Technology


To meet requirements for reduced emissions of pollutants, PEUGEOT has developed a new family of 3-cylinder PureTech petrol engines. These engines have been developed in line with Peugeot's engine down-sizing strategy.

As a result, the 3-cylinder PureTech engine is lighter and more compact than a 4-cylinder engine of the same horsepower.  The engine's output and performance are increased, its power is constant over a wide usage range and it maintains a high degree of acoustic comfort.

In this way the engine reduces fuel consumption and CO2 emissions up to 25% while preserving optimal driving pleasure.

The optimised design of this engine comes in two versions, normally aspirated and turbo-charged, sharing 40% of common parts. The turbo-compressed version which is available in two engine power specifications - the 1.2L PureTech 110 S&S and the 130 S&S - won the Engine of the Year award for 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018 in its category.

Powerful while combining efficiency and driving pleasure, these engines are part of PEUGEOT's promise to provide new rewarding and stimulating driving experiences.

Peugeot Atmospheric PureTech Engine


This engine combines dynamism with simplicity in the PEUGEOT 108 and in PEUGEOT’S entry level models - the 208, 2008 and 308.

These cars are powered by the 1.2L PureTech 68, the 1.2L PureTech 82, and the 1.2L PureTech 82 S&S (Stop&Start), with CO2 emissions between only 95 et 114 g/km.

Peugeot PureTech Turbocharged Engine


This engine specification comes with next generation turbo power providing high output capacity (240,000 r/min).

This offers the best compromise between low-end torque and power. Ninety five percent of the torque is already available from 1,500 r/min up to 3,500 r/min.

The engines 1.2L PureTech 110 S&S and the 130 S&S are fitted in the PEUGEOT 208, 2008, 308, 308 SW, 3008, 5008 and the Partner Tepee.
