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.
