The new Peugeot 208 features technologies that enhance your driving experience and maximise efficiency.
Peugeot offers an extensive range of low emission vehicles – more than half of its vehicles sold worldwide emit less than 140g of CO2 per km. This is made possible via cutting-edge technology, such as the Stop & Start system, as well as a new generation of PureTech engines and Efficient Automatic Transmission 6-speed (EAT6) gearboxes.
With its superior combination of high performance and environmental-friendliness, the 1.2-litre, 3-cylinder and 12-valve PureTech turbo petrol engine was named the 2015 and 2016 International Engine of the Year, beating four German competitors in the 1-litre to 1.4-litre category to cinch the top spot.
This special engine offers multiple benefits, such as responsive handling afforded by the weight savings. The smaller engine size means you pay lower road taxes. It is also extremely light and is turbocharged to provide high performance and torque (110hp and 205Nm at 1500rpm).
In addition, the environmentally-friendly engine (Euro 6 emissions standard) has high fuel-efficiency, with a superb balancer shaft to give you a smoother drive. Little wonder then that this engine won the 2014 Great Auto Environment Prize across all categories at the 10th edition of the Auto Environment MAAF 2014, which promotes sustainable innovations that reduce the impact on the environment.
Enjoy high levels of performance with this car’s efficient, versatile and economical PureTech turbo petrol engine.
Combined with the cockpit’s compact steering wheel, an optimal weight (an average of 110kg less than the Peugeot 207) for improved fuel economy and responsiveness (with a 0 – 100km/h time of 9.8s), the new Peugeot 208 offers perfect harmony between comfort and road holding. Expect pure driving pleasure for every trip.
The 1.2L PureTech 110 S&S version of the new Peugeot 208 features the EAT6 automatic gearbox with 6-speed Aisin torque converter, optimising fuel consumption (with an EC Combined Fuel Economy Figure of 22.2km/litre) and enhancing driving pleasure.
It boasts Quickshift technology for:
On the other hand, its energy efficiency is almost the same as that of a mechanical gearbox as a result of:
These allows the 208 to emit 1 g/km less CO2 than manual transmission cars with the same tyres.
